Great location! In the middle of the Royal Mile

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment, centrally located and offering all the amenities that my family needed. We were so pleasantly surprised how quiet the apartment and the bedrooms were for being in the middle of the Royal Mile. Highly recommend this apartment if you want the experience of old town and where everything is within walking distance.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is right on the Royal Mile with many restaurants and sights nearby. We were able to walk to just about everything we were interested in seeing in the area. It is located about halfway between the castle and the palace.

While the front living area is right over the many tour gathering locations and restaurants, the bedrooms are in the back and are pretty quiet. There was plenty of space to spread out. The apartment fixtures were old, except the washer, but everything worked very well. There was a drying rack in a closet off the living room and it was very easy to do laundry. The bathroom is old, but very clean and stocked with soap, shampoo and a blow dryer was available. The only challenge were the spirial stairs from the street with the suitcases. They are a bit steep, but we managed. It was quite a good stay overall.

Great Place in Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfortable, well-equipped apartment smack on the Royal Mile. Major Old Town attractions such as St. Giles and the Castle are directly out the front door, while much more in both Old Town and New -- Holy Rood, Princes Street Gardens, National Gallery, Scott Monument, Calton Hill, the university -- are mere minutes away on foot. Also near at hand: restaurants, pubs, groceries, and public transport at Waverly Station. Bright, airy front room looks out over Royal Mile; bedrooms in rear are private and quiet. Responsive and professional, Shahid made logistics a breeze. Highly recommended.

Great property in the heart of the old city

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay in Edinburgh. Our family of four were so happy to see such a large and comfortable apartment where everyone could have their own room and still be located within walking distance of everything. The beds were comfortable, instructions were thorough and easy to follow, and everything was as described. Front room furniture has been updated versus what is shown in the photos and is very nice. Thank you for a great stay!
