BEAUTIFUL Historical Building...Complete with Modern Amenities!

  • 5 out of 5
This property is simply - wow. Very rare to find such a spacious apartment in the heart of Edinburgh. The pictures online actually do not do it justice, it is far more stunning in person. Each room is spotlessly clean, well maintained / comfortable & has incredible views of gorgeous Edinburgh. Updated full working kitchen, again with a stunning view of the city. After a long day of sightseeing on foot, coming home to this flat was such a nice treat because everyone had their own "space" (myself, husband & teenage daughter) The location is perfect, we did not hire a car nor found it necessary given this location as it is walking distance for groceries, fantastic restaurants and take away as well as many tourist attractions. We walked to the castle, George St, Royal mile, Princes st, the bus stop where our day trip departed from, shopping (John Lewis 3 minutes away:) and every Fringe Festival venue! Bus stop right across the street with easy and efficient transit system. The owner was extremely helpful in answering any questions we had. I would highly recommend staying at this property. Such a beautiful combination between old world and new world, a royal treat.
