LUXURY OLD TOWN APARTMENT WITH ROOFTOP ACCESS

Special Offer: LAST MINUTE DEAL - 50% OFF UNTIL 4 JUNE 20 April - 4 June

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Old Town (Grassmarket)

This beautifully presented second floor apartment in Edinburgh’s Old Town has a communal roof area with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle - perfect for watching the Edinburgh International Festival and Hogmanay fireworks, or for having a peaceful drink at sunset.

Bread Street is a fantastic location in the heart of the UK’s favourite city (Observer Travel Awards 2012). The best of Edinburgh is on your doorstep. World-class tourist attractions, cutting-edge theatres and vibrant festival venues can be found amidst a throng of Michelin-starred restaurants, artisan cafes and leafy parks just beyond your threshold. Have a wee browse below to see what’s on offer.

This completely modernised apartment benefits from classic Edinburgh high ceilings and large south-facing windows, as well as a brand new kitchen and shower room. Comfort and convenience are high on the agenda, with luxurious Egyptian cotton bedlinen, a well-equipped kitchen, an iPod/smart phone dock and Wi-Fi throughout.

Check-in is from 3pm on the day of arrival and check-out by 10:30am on the morning of departure. Whenever possible, we are happy to arrange an early baggage drop-off or late baggage collection to suit your travel plans.

We provide a friendly and personal service, meeting all guests on arrival to provide keys and show you around the apartment. Our hope is that the apartment will be a home away from home during your stay in Edinburgh.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you!

We are a South African-Swedish couple who love going to new places (especially hot and sunny ones). In 2005 we somehow found ourselves in not-so-sunny, but spectacularly beautiful Scotland, and we are still in Edinburgh today. Combining our passion for property and travel, we always thought it would be fun to have a holiday let, so in 2012 we bought this flat in the perfect Edinburgh location and spent several months giving it a complete makeover. We hope you like it!

Call us biased, but we think this is the PERFECT location to explore Edinburgh (if in doubt, have a look at the list of what's available within 10 minutes' walking distance!). We also love the roof area and the character of the flat, with its high ceilings, bay windows and even an old-fashioned clothes pulley.

Had such a lovely time...

The apartment was in a perfect location and very convenient. We found it comfortable and cosy with all the mod cons. Loved the sound system. Also thank you for being such friendly and accommodating hosts - the extended departure time helped us get sorted out easily enough and without any fuss. Great value, great flat and most importantly great hosts. Thank You.

My wife and I have stayed in quite a few places around Edinburgh but this one was by far the best.

Its hidden gem and we were honestly lucky to have found it. The owner was a great chap and really likable and nothing was a bother for him. The flat is very well presented and has all the mod cons. There is ample space and everything is very well laid out as well as a lot of tourist information. The local shop is just a minutes walk away and you are literally 2-5 minutes walk fro everything in the city center. I was initially worried about loud noises at night being in the city itself but I heard nothing and I am a really light sleeper. The bed was so comfortable and I have not slept that well in years.

I just simply cannot recommend this place to stay enough, if there were more stars to give it I would! You will not be disappointed and my wife and I have already booked our trips for next year there.
