About the property

Edinburgh Thistle Apartments is a small family run business that aims to provide guests with the real city break experience. Our apartment is fully furnished and contains many of the home comforts you would experience while in your own home.

Located in the West of the historic city, only a short 10 minute walk from Edinburgh’s iconic Murrayfield stadium; is our modern 2 bedroom apartment sleeping up to 4 persons with fitted kitchen with dining area, comfortable lounge, 2 double bedrooms and family bathroom. The apartment also benefits from having its own private garden and private driveway parking.

The apartment has the flexibility of multiple sleeping options, with a 4 single bed option, or 2 singles and a luxury king size bed option, the choice is yours. (All bedding and towels supplied).

For the same price of a hotel, why not have a great stay in your very own home away from home apartment, where you can relax with home comforts and experience local Edinburgh living.


We are fortunate here at ETA 1 to have the luxury of excellent direct transport links to the historic city centre literally right on our door step.

Access by bus could not be easier; hop across Stevenson Road to the bus stop and catch either the Number 22 or 30 for the fastest route to Princes Street; 2.1 miles taking only 8 minutes. Alternatively for the tourist route, take the Number 1 or 2 and take in some of the sights through Gorgie and Dalry, past Tynecastle Stadium, home to Scottish Premier League side Hearts FC.

The property needs to be ridden of spiders hiding in the bathroom, living room and kitchen ..

However, it is in a very convenient location as there are nearby local superstores and easy access of local transports,and wifi..

very friendly welcome by the owners ..no interferences..and flexible..

Owner's Response: Hi Ilangage, Thank you for your review, I am sorry you came across a few spiders. Our apartment is an old apartment, dating back to 1941 so it does provide a nice warm space for spiders to come and hide. We will make sure to be extra vigilant and take care of any we find in future. I am glad you would recommend friends and guests to come and stay with us. We look forward to seeing you back in Edinburgh some time All the best Stuart & Katy

Very pleasing property

Loved the welcome package. Great communication with Katy. Felt valued as Katy checked on us on our first night. She was also able to give us great advice regarding public transport into the city centre. Great location for a family as it has all necessary amenities.

Como en mi propia casa. Su dueño fue muy atento y servicial.

  • 5 of 5

Dos habitaciones grandes, muy bien decoradas. Un salón completo, con vídeo y todos los canales. En la habitación estaba cuidado hasta el mas mínimo detalle, incluido la basura selectiva para reciclar. La calefacción central se encendía automaticamente en función de la temperatura y clima que se tenía en ese momento: todo perfecto. Su propietario reside en la misma casa, pero planta baja, a la que se accede por un lateral, y a la nuestra por una puerta central con jardín. Por tanto, total intimidad. Justo enfrente está la parada de autobús, que en diez minutos llegabas al centro de Edimburgo.

Su dueño fue muy servicial. LLegamos a media noche y teníamos en la cocina leche, pan de tostadas, mantequilla, galletas y zumos, para que , al levantarnos, tuviésemos que desayunar. Nos ayudó en el alquiler de un coche, llevándonos hasta la oficina en su propio coche. La noche anterior a irnos, nos gestionó un taxi de confianza que nos viniese a buscar a las 06:00 de la mañana, para el traslado al aeropuerto, muy pronto a la mañana. Esos detalles te dan una confianza y tranquilidad, que nos hace disfrutar aún más de las vacaciones. Thanks at all, Mr McDonald. Our family really was enjoying in your city.
