Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Broughton - Leopold Place

2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4-6

Leopold Place is a large (100 m2), quiet, city centre basement flat with small private garden to the rear. The front of the property faces south making the living/dining room bright and airy whilst the bedrooms are situated to the rear. There is a private front courtyard ensuring privacy from the road above.

The kitchen adjoins the living area and is equipped with Siemens appliances throughout including oven, electric hob, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Other kitchen appliances include microwave, cafetiere, kettle and toaster.

The dining area of the living room seats 4 but with the option of extending the table to seat 6. HD digital TV is at your disposal.

There is a king-size bed (150cm) in the master bedroom with a double bed (135cm) in the second bedroom. A large sofabed in the master bedroom gives the option of sleeping up to 2 further people.

There is gas central heating throughout and on-demand hot water

The central location of Leopold Place means that everything is close by with the majority of Edinburgh's attractions within walking distance. Many of the venues for the Edinburgh International Festival are also within a short walking distance and the Playhouse Theatre is situated just 2 mins walk from the apartment. John Lewis department store and the Omni entertainment centre are also less than 5 mins walk away.

Valvona & Crolla, arguably Edinburgh's best delicatessen, is literally around the corner.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights in early March. The owner, Mark was a pleasure to work with, even coming by one morning to see how things were going for us. The location is about a 20 minute walk from the train station and Royal Mile. Although it is located on a busy street with a bus stop out front, we remarkably, never heard any traffic noise. In warmer weather, there is a lovely garden area in the back that would be a nice respite from visiting tourist sites.

The apartment itself had everything a family of 5 needed. The kitchen is updated and had all the cooking tools needed to make hearty breakfasts - we never made it back until late at night, so didn't make other meals. There is a small washing machine, which came in very handy as not all of our luggage arrived with us on our flight. All of the beds were comfortable and had lovely warm comforters; there is a futon bed in the master bedroom that can be made into a full size bed as well.

We wouldn't hesitate to return to this location if we are fortunate enough to spend time back in Edinburgh.

The perfect place to stay in Edimburgh

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well located, near restaurants, shops and public transports. It is wide, well equipped with everything you need, nicely decorated and very clean.

I would definitely recommand this place.

Superb Apartment, Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say what a wonderful apartment this is, ideally located and providing for a true "home from home". It had everything we required, was spotlessly clean and was like a Tardis. All the rooms were huge and spacious and well kitted out with every mod con you would need. My lasses were in heaven with the inclusive Wifi!!

During the whole booking process, Mark (the Owner) was a delight to work with and was very accommodating given our delayed flight and late night arrival.

I will be recommending to all my friends and family and all I can say is that "hopefully" I'll never have to stay in an Edinburgh Hotel again as your flat eclipses them on every level.

Thanks again,

Craig, Gail, Megan & Molly

We were thrilled with this rental. We loved the location which was close to everything we needed. Super convenient to the city, bus station, and a local bus stop outside the door. The apartment is stylish! Highly recommend!

Wonderful apartment - loved everything about it!

This apartment was adorable, clean and spacious. My family of 5 stayed there and loved everything about it. I highly recommend it. Very quaint little courtyard outside the apartment, too. Nice location.

Edinburgh, being a UNESCO world heritage site, needs little introduction. Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile are all world famous. Edinburgh's architecture is also world renowned, especially the Georgian buildings and gardens of the New Town. Above all, however, Edinburgh is perhaps best known for the Edinburgh International Festival which takes place every summer.

Edinburgh is also perfectly placed for visiting the beaches of East Lothian, the beautiful Scottish Borders and as a stepping stone for the Highlands & Islands. Glasgow is also just an hour away by train.
