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.

Superb Apartment, Amazing Location!

  • 5 out 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!

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.

Very Nice place well situated!!

  • 5 out of 5
I was in Marks two bedroom appartement with my friend and two teenagers. Great place to stay near everything! It is well equipped and Mark is really a friendly honest person. He was there on arrival and very nice and ready to help. The Wifi worked well, the tv also and the kitchen had all we could ask for. He even had a hair dryer. His place is clean and like home. The only thing was the weather quite humid and cold..but that is Edinburgh in December! The town was decorated for Xmas and new years and the shops has sales! We took a 3 day sightseeing bus and had one of the lines just around the corner of the appartement. We also had a good grocery store near buy. I do recommend this place!! Will come back if we re visit Edinburgh.
Thanks Mark!

Lovely, clean and conveniently located apartment

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is comfortable and clean with a very well-equipped kitchen, tastefully furnished and very conveniently located. It is within walking distance to restaurants and shops (Tesco Express is less than 5 minutes walk away) and about 15 minutes walk to the city/Princes Street. It is spacious and perfect for the 6 of us. We enjoyed our stay so much so that my kids preferred to "stay home" than to go out! Mark is nice and accommodating and answers our emails/calls promptly. The apartment is highly recommended and if we ever get to visit Edinburgh again, we know where to stay.

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.
