Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Old Town (Grassmarket) - Edinburgh Palace Apartment

Free on site PARKING, just a few minutes walk to Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace.

This CENTRAL exceptionally clean GROUND FLOOR modern apartment (non smoking) with one bedroom, living room, separate kitchen and bathroom has every conceivable comfort and convenience for your stay. You will find a free welcome pack on your arrival to get you started. We have a selection of maps, guides, books and DVDs for your use and Wi-Fi (with a strong reliable signal) is also available free of charge together with IPOD docking and CD player. Of course all heating, bed linen and towels are also included in the price.

We provide everything you will need so there's no need to go shopping for the basics like, soap, kitchen roll, etc.

We have decided to let out our apartment to a maximum of 2 guests to ensure the best possible experience. We have therefore been able to provide a comfortable quality sofa in the living room as a sofa bed is not required. We have furnished the apartment carefully, choosing stylish quality furnishings for an enjoyable stay for our guests. The apartment is heated throughout and is lovely and warm.

Access

As the apartment is on the ground floor there are no accessibility problems for the infirm. We also provide a 'meet and greet' service at no extra charge to ensure you have gained access to the apartment and to answer any questions you may have.

Babies under two years old

If you have your own travel cot and cot bedding you are welcome to bring your baby to stay.

Parking

Free private car parking, which is a rarity in central Edinburgh is provided for those arriving by car. There are private resident's parking bays at the apartment for which you will be given a parking permit for use during your stay. However, a car is not

necessary as all the main tourist attractions are within walking distance and Edinburgh has a fantastic regular bus service if you want to go further. Just outside the apartment there are cycle racks for any guests arriving with or hiring bicycles. We reward stays of a week or more with our offer of 7 nights for the price of 6 nights, 8 nights for price of 7 etc.

Arrival

If you are flying to Edinburgh airport, the number 35 bus from the airport stops just around the corner from the apartment or you can take a taxi for £20 to £25. If coming by train, the Edinburgh Waverley train station is just 1 mile away. For those driving, you can park your car for free in the on site parking at the apartment.

Check in/check out times

The general check in time is 3pm but we are quite flexible so just ask if you want to arrive earlier.

Check out time is normally 11am but again if you need to stay a bit longer we can normally accommodate this. Please just ask us and we will try to help.

About Lynn

I was born in Edinburgh and have lived here all my life. I am married with two children, one at school and one at the University of Edinburgh.

Lynn purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lynn chose Old Town (Grassmarket)

I have lived in Edinburgh all my life so know the city well. I have chosen the Holyrood area to purchase an apartment to let out as I know it's a great location to see the best of what Edinburgh has to offer a tourist. My family and I have been on many holidays ourselves so know what we appreciate and need in our holiday accommodation. We have therefore provided everything we would like ourselves when away from home. I hope you will consider booking with us and look forward to meeting you.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is new, modern, bright and fresh. It is in a quiet location away from the main road but just a short walk to the Royal Mile.

Great Location & a Lovely Apartment

Great Location & a Lovely Apartment
  • 5 out of 5
I would definitely recommend this property. The location meant it was easy to walk into the city centre and yet it was a very quiet area. Free parking on site meant coming by car was easy (though we didn't need to use the car during our stay).
The apartment itself was clean, tidy & well equipped. Plenty of useful tourist leaflets and guidebooks were there to use. Welcome pack was very helpful so we could have a coffee and sort ourselves out without having to dash to the shops. Lynn has been friendly & helpful at each stage from initial booking onwards.

Superb apartment in a super location

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was well furnished. It is in a super location with walkable access to holyrood palace, arthur's seat and the castle. There was free parking. Lynn made sleeping arrangements for our 3 year old daughter which was exactly what we needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you, yes the fact that you can easily walk to the main tourist attractions is a big advantage in this location and the free parking an extra bonus. I was happy to make up an extra bed for your daughter and was pleased to hear she liked it.

Ideal for a couple.

  • 5 out of 5
Ideal location for a couple wanting somewhere close to the city centre but with off street parking. The flat was in a safe area and just a 20 minute walk from the main central attractions. It was also a short walk from Holyrood Palace, the starting point for the climb of Arthur's Seat (recommended on a clear day) and the Scottish Parliament. A Sainsbury's supermarket was also close by.

The only minor criticism was the size of the dining table which was a bit small to eat off. Otherwise everything worked perfectly and we had an enjoyable stay.

Lynn met us on time and showed us the basics and there were plenty of maps and guides in the flat.

We would recommend this flat to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I'm so glad you both enjoyed your stay in the apartment and found the location so convenient. I have taken on board your comments regarding the bistro style dining table and will look to upsize it when doing our next refurbishment.

Bright, spacious and ideally located!

  • 5 out of 5
My boyfriend and I spent five days in this apartment during our stay in Edinburgh. It brought our holiday from brilliant to fantastic! It's spacious, well equipped and less than ten minutes from the city center. Ideal home away from home! Lynn was extremely friendly, helpful and easy to contact! I couldn't recommend this apartment enough for anyone looking for accommodation in the city!

The apartment was perfect for our needs. Cosy, modern and very well maintained. Lynn met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know. We settled in with nice cup of tea, everything was supplied on a welcome tray which was great. We walked into town every day, a pleasant 10 minute walk takes you to The Royal Mile so location wise the apartment is perfect for seeing all the sights. When we arrived home each night the apartment was lovely and warm and we slept well as the bed was really comfortable. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh, we will definitely be back.

Fancy having royalty as neighbours? This fantastically located central apartment is almost next door to The Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's residence whilst in Scotland. Across the road from the Palace is the Scottish Parliament Building and Dynamic Earth. From there, a short stroll up the Canongate leads to the High Street where at the top you will find the famous Edinburgh castle (the route from the Palace to the Castle is known as the Royal Mile). The accommodation is also within walking distance of most of the fringe and festival venues and the shopping area of Princes Street.

Situated at the edge of Holyrood Park, the apartment is well located for access for walks, runs, cycling and climbing to the top of 'Arthur's Seat' the extinct volcano. The view from the top is well worth the climb and we provide binoculars for your use. This walk has been voted the 9th best city hike in the world by 'Lonely Planet'.

Although free private car parking is provided at the apartment, all the main tourist attractions are within walking distance. The apartment is also near Edinburgh's Royal Commonwealth Pool with it's newly refurbished 50 metre pool, diving pool, gym and studios. This venue will host the diving events for Glasgow's 2014 Commonwealth Games.

There is a retail park less than 10 minutes walk from the apartment with a large Sainsburys, TK Max, M & S outlet etc. Meadowbank sports centre is a few minutes further on with it's 400 metre running track, badminton courts, gym, climbing wall etc. The Edinburgh Playhouse is a 15 minute walk from the apartment.
