About the property

Close to city centre in a safe area. Free parking at the apartment. Free wifi. Modern, clean and comfortable.

Impressive 2 bedroomed apartment designed to sleep 4 guests comfortably with facilities to add an additional 2 guests if you are happy to squeeze in. Making this apartment an affordable choice for families and small groups. (Please note that children, regardless of age, count towards the number of guests staying in the apartment, even if they are babies, and we can not accept 6 guests plus a baby as that is 7 guests). The apartment is not big enough for 7.

First Floor Flat - quiet location near city centre.

Free parking, free WiFi and 42 inch flat screen cable TV with around 100 channels and a DVD player. (selection of DVDs)

Located in a quiet residential estate off, and near to, the top of Leith Walk. You are sure of a good night’s sleep yet still within walking distance to bars, bistros, restaurants and Tescos. The Omni Centre with its multiplex cinema, the Playhouse Theatre, Broughton Street and Princes Street are within walking distance from the apartment.

If you walk in the other directions you will find Holyrood Park, Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace, Royal Mile and Dynamic Earth.

An excellent choice of buses will take you to all the tourist attractions in and around Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a great base for exploring other parts of Scotland.

Great standard of accommodation. Very modern. Spacious lounge with 2 large leather sofas sitting 6 guests and coffee table.

The breakfast bar in the kitchen can seat 6 guests. Kitchen has washing machine, dishwasher, oven and ceramic hob, fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle and enough glasses, plates, pots etc for a self catering stay. Small separate freezer.

You will love the shower room which has been designed with luxury in mind. Large shower, toilet and sink.

2 bedrooms. One bedroom has a double bed and the other has 2 single beds. Ample storage in both rooms. Quality linen and towels supplied.

As an alternative to making up a sofa bed in the livingroom each night, our designer has creatively handcrafted 2 additional single beds. They are tucked away behind sliding doors off the livingroom. These custom built beds are solid and suitable for adults and children. They offer more privacy, convenience and comfort than a sofa bed. For the 5th or 6th guest.

A travel cot and high chair are available free of charge. Just bring your own bedding.

The apartment is not big enough to host 6 guests plus a baby in the travel cot. Maximum number of bodies in the apartment is 6.

About Elaine Fraser

I love travelling and meeting new people. I have 3 holiday apartments fairly close to each other. Would love you to stay and sample one of them. I have just branched out and bought my first holiday home in Fuerteventura which will be available to book shortly.

Elaine Fraser purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Elaine Fraser chose Edinburgh and Lothians

Quiet area but close enough to the city centre. Close to shops, bus routes, playhouse theatre, city centre. Free parking and wifi. Great choice for a stay in Edinburgh and works out much cheaper than 2 or 3 hotel rooms. You also have privacy and facilities to cook should you wish to do so.

What makes this apartment unique

modern, clean and affordable. Newly refurbished

Great Location - Lovely Flat

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is well situated with convenient access to downtown, but has off street parking. It's tastefully decorated and efficiently laid out. It was ideal for 3 adults and 2 small children. There's a great play park around the corner for kids and it's easy to take the bus downtown from Leith Walk. The check in was easy and on time, which was great as we'd endured a long flight. Overall we were very impressed with the flat!

Solidly good without being brilliant

  • 3 of 5

Good location - easy walk from city and amenities; has parking which we needed. Property compact but adequate- assume that you did not want to do much cooking.

The decorations are a little garish - if that sort of thing is a problem. The major

Issue dor us was the "perfume" that was pervasive - all soap, cleaning products etc were heavily scented. However, if you are looking for a bed close to the city at a good price, this is it.

Owner's Response: I am a little sad at your review. This is a very inexpensive self catering apartment close to the city centre. We provide cleaning products, shampoo, etc as an extra which guests can use should they not have their own shampoo, conditioner, shower gel etc. The majority of self catering apartments do not supply these things free of charge.

Nice apartment in Edinburgh

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean, quiet, and was perfect for our family of four. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with everything you need to cook. It was nice that there was a washer too. There are several restaurants nearby which was nice, especially for the first night we were there. It is a bit of a walk to the main tourist sites in town, so we were glad we had a car. There is free parking at the apartment which was great. There are buses nearby if you don't have a car. TV and free wifi was nice too. I would recommend this rental, especially if you want to be away from the noisy tourist areas.

Modern, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Edinburgh for our daughters sixth birthday. We were greeted by Elaine who was really nice and helpful. The apartment was really nice and the welcome pack including a birthday cake was a lovely touch. We couldn't have asked for a nicer apartment and the bunk beds were fantastic as they were full sized single beds with room for an adult to sit up in with memory foam mattresses. The tv had virgin media and loads of DVDs to chose from and the kitchen had everything including a dishwasher. The shower was a little temperamental but otherwise everything else was great. The only note for asthma suffers is that the bedding is all feather so by the second night my asthma was becoming a problem which is a shame as they were lovely and soft and warm but take your own duvet and pillows if this is a problem. The apartment is not far from the centre of Edinburgh and so ideally located although we didn't walk it as I am disabled in a car it took very little time to get anywhere. We had a brilliant time at the zoo and dynamic earth so thoroughly recommend those attractions. Thank you for a wonderful apartment to make my daughters trip so happy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Glad you all enjoyed Edinburgh and the apartment. Hope your daughter enjoyed her birthday cake. I just want to point out the the bedding in the apartment is Microfibre and not feather. Microfibre is a type of polyester, made better. It's spun into extraordinarily fine fibres - they measure 1/100th the diameter of a human hair and 1/20th the diameter of a strand of silk. That means we can stuff even more into duvets and pillows, trapping more air, keeping you warmer. From the outside, a microfibre duvet responds like a natural feather and down duvet. It'll be warm, light and luxurious. Even better, because the fibres are so fine and soft, they tend to produce duvets and pillows with a softer feel.
