Overview

About the property

Luxury 1 Bedroom Apartment in Edinburgh's City Centre

This luxury 1 bedroom apartment is in a magnificent Georgian town house located right in the city centre on Queen Street. It is on the second floor (up 2 flights of stairs) of this 18th century building and offers spectacular views across the north of the city and over the Firth of Forth to Fife.

One enters the property into a magnificent entrance hall with wood panelling and a feature cast iron stair balustrade.

The bright, spacious sitting room has a gas fire, comfortable leather sofas and there is an additional sofa which converts into a double bed. A large dining table is provided with seating for 6 so entertaining is not a problem. The bedroom is well furnished and has large fitted wardrobes and a queen-size bed. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas stove and electric oven. The bathroom has a power shower over the bath.

Wifi internet is provided. Parking may be made available on request.

Queen Street is right in the city centre being located just behind George Street, one of the city's most important shopping streets. This means that you are within a few minutes walk from some of the best shops, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions that Edinburgh has to offer. There is the added bonus of being able to look out over the tree tops in Queen Street Gardens (a key is provided for the gardens) and beyond is the Firth of Forth so you practically have a "sea view"!

Please note we do not have any recent reviews because this apartment has not been used as a holiday let for the last 3 years.

Phenomenal place to stay, lovely owner and family

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend Francois' place! It seems perfect for just about any travelers but was especially excellent for us. It's thoughtfully decorated, with very good taste, but also so there are very few (if any) hazards for small children. Our 18-month-old could move from room to room with no problem. And the private park across the street is magical (and saved us day after day when our little boy needed an open space to run).

One thing to understand before booking is that there is no lift and there are two full flights of stairs to the apartment. That said, we had a toddler and some not light bags and it was not a big deal. Just have to do it once up and once down. And Francois kindly helped carry one of our heavier bags.

Before we arrived, Francois at times did not respond so quickly (sometimes three or four days in between), but this never led to any problems and he could not have been more helpful and wonderful immediately before arrival and when we were in town.

The views are really lovely and the location is fantastic. (We took a walking tour of New Town and left early b/c it went almost in front of the apartment building.) Be prepared for hills if you visit Edinburgh but this apartment has just one uphill between it and the center of town - and it is the next block over.

In all, we feel lucky. This was the perfect place for us. Thank you Francois, and to your family!

Great location & apartment

  • 5 of 5

Francois was extremely helpful in finding this great location for our stay. It is walking distance to many great restaurants and local pubs, as well as, all of the tourist attractions Edinburgh has to offer. The apartment was great and just what we needed for our travels. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Edinburgh.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was my first flat rental and it was a fantastic one. The apartment was beautiful and a fabulous location. Everything was within reasonable distance. The entire flat was clean and tidy. We were there on one of the hottest weeks in Edinburgh, even without air conditioning, we stayed very comfortable. The north facing windows provided a great breeze. The pub/restaurant we went to the most was the Queen's Arms, just around the corner on Frederick St. Minus the airline loosing our luggage, our week in Edinburgh was as close to perfect as it could get.

Worked perfectly

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place.

As of Nov 2012, the place looks exactly as the photos.

Top floor, with nice views.

Don't hear much at all from other units. There is occasionally a bit of street noise, but it is central Edinburgh after all.

Well equipped kitchen, and very nicely located.

They provide a key to explore the Queen's Street gardens across the way.

Heating system works great - kept us nice and warm during our mid-fall visit.

Bed was very comfortable.

Location: many restaurants and coffee shops with a 1/2 block. About a 15 minute walk to the main train station. Even less to get to Rose Street (pedestrian) and many of the central Edinburgh attractions. Central Edinburgh is quite compact, so we did not even end up taking any buses - easy to walk everywhere from the apartment.

Location

Car: not necessary

This really is right in the city centre, being in Edinburgh's beautiful New Town, a 2 minute walk from the main shopping streets, George Street and Princes Street and being surrounded by most of the city's best bars, restaurants and tourist attractions.
