Overview

About the property

A city centre 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment sleeping 5

This unique 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment is in the basement of an old school house which dates from the 19th century so it has some interesting features such as the vaulted ceiling in the twin bedroom. Please note there is a flight of stairs down from street level to the entrance of the property.

The rest of the accommodation includes a double bedroom, a shower room with toilet and a full bathroom. There is an impressive, spacious open-plan living room/dining room and kitchen which overlooks the courtyard. The windows act as doors in this room so direct access into this area can be gained.

This location is ideal for all the sights in the Old Town with the famous Grassmarket being less than a 10 minute walk away and the Castle itself is about a 15 minute walk. Princes Street is also a 15 minute walk away and there are a host of shops, restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk.

Close to everything that needs to be seen and done. Very walkable city from this location. Pubs, restaurants, and castle right in front of you. Only 20L cab from the airport.

Apartment is well equipped and furnished.

We would recommend this flat to others with no exceptions. Comfort, cleanliness,hospitality and location were all perfect. Make sure you try the incredible Thai restaurant and local pub that are minutes away.

Great apartment/Great Location/Great Time In Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful weeks in this apartment in June 2017. The layout is very functional, with a common area that looks out onto a flowered patio area. The apartment is equipped with everything you need for everyday living. Location is the best - it was very easy to walk to the Royal Mile, train stations, museums, etc.

We would definitely stay here again if we were in Edinburgh. Francois is great to work with and wants your stay to be enjoyable. Thank you for everything. We had a great time here!

Comfortable apartment, good value for money acommodation

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well located, 15 minutes walking from downtown. It is quiet, clean and comfortable. We were two couple, each having a bedroom and a bathroom, with a common living room and kitchen. Although the inner temperature was a bit low when we arrived, we had the possibility to increase it in each room, up to our personal comfort. The kitchen is well equipped, and easy to use.

The manager is very polite and gave us useful guidance.

I would recommend however some improvements:

1. the bathtube should have a shower arm, as it is difficult to use it for daily refreshment.

2. a small coffee pot should be added for regular coffee boiling

3. the frying pans should be changed, as they are Teflon and have big scratches which are dangerous

Three supermarkets are very close (5 minutes walking) and you can find easily a good variety of products for meals.

Some of the restaurants are very good, but the prices are a bit high.
