Many of the main venues / attractions are a stone's throw from the flat, and others, like the castle, Royal Mile and the main shopping areas are easily reached on foot in less than 20 minutes or around 10 minutes by using the frequent bus service which stops outside the door and takes you directly into the heart of the central shopping area.The apartment was redecorated in 2013 and 2014, and although it has been tastefully modernized it retains many attractive period features, such as original fireplaces, working shutters, ornamental balconies and decorative cornicing.

Lovely, well equipped apartment in easy walking distance of Arthurs's Seat, the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. The apartment was easily large enough to accommodate our group of 12. We had a fantastic stay - thank you!
We had a wonderful time in Edinburgh, the apartment was amazing, in a very good location and more than lived up to the pictures. It was so spacious, the bedrooms were lovely with extremely comfortable beds. The kitchen was very well equipped, and dining and lounge area were very good. There were convenience stores, bars and restaurants literally within a couple of minutes walk. The only slight downside was that four of the six bedrooms were within hearing distance of a busy road so traffic noise was a slight problem, but I would certainly stay there again and recommend it to friends. You could see Arthur's Seat from a couple of the bedroom windows and it is just a fifteen minute walk from the apartment.
Éramos tres familias con niños entre 8 y 16 años. La situación de la casa es muy buena, con todo tipo de comercios, bares y restaurantes y lo más importante es que la distancia al centro es muy corta, pero si quieres ir en autobús, hay muchos que paran al lado de la casa. Judy (la dueña) fue muy amable aunque solo nos comunicamos por correo electrónico, y Karen nos entregó las llaves y nos proporcionó toda la información necesaria, una persona muy agradable. La casa es cómoda y amplia. Nos ha encantado Edimbugo y es probable que repitamos.
