My wife and I were pleasantly surprised at the accommodation. The location and view couldn't have been any better and being situated in the Grass Market with all its conveniences was perfect.
Just as cozy as can be with an OUTSTANDING view!
This place has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Edinburgh ... least of all a view of the castle that just won't quit, and a location in the heart of Edinburgh that can't be beat! Easy walk to train station, or just a £6.00 cab fare if your loaded down with luggage as I was. Even still, if you want some good cardio to and from ... just walk it with your bags.
A fresh coat of paint and some new carpet would go a long way to cover the tracks of what must be a never ending in-and-out of travelers, but for the price and location, this place has everything! Plus ... you get the spiral staircase which is a novelty in and of itself.
One thing Martin and Ewan ... what's happening with the landing at the bottom of the stairs? It felt as if it might give way with the next footfall to be put upon it. Just curious.
P.S. I signed the guest book. Check it out and let me know what you think???
dank and musty
Apartment is in a excellent location being close to the castle. The building is on a slope and this apartment is on the bottom. For whatever reason the apartment is dank and musty. The bedroom is on the bottom level. The bedroom window doesn't open. Even if it did, it would open on to a construction site. Perhaps in mid summer the apartment would be pleasant, but for the rest of the year, no way.
Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy this apartment. Because Edinburgh is very hilly, apartments are often built different levels, and this apartment opens at the back to King's Stables Lane. The main entrance is via Webster's Land because this goes into the living area on the upper level, with the bedroom/bathroom at the lower level. We would have been happy to advise about the back door in order to air the apartment for you. There are currently (autumn 2018) new buildings being constructed in the next block. Edinburgh carefully controls building works in the historical Old Town so that there is noise only during working hours. The new buildings at King's Stables Road will offer enhanced restaurant, cafe, etc facilities in this Grassmarket area.
Perfectly Located - A Sanctuary So Close To Being In The Middle Of Everything. Came with everything you could need - and more. Very comfortable and friendly.
What a great oasis from the bustle of Grassmarket.
We were very comfortable in this delightful flat. The dining table was great to spread out on and plan our next adventure. The location was perfect for heading to the University, The Royal Mile, and everything in between. Even the YumYum take away across the street served us well. We enjoyed two concerts happening at the castle, hearing the music waft down to us. The courtyard allowed my husband to step out and assess the weather easily. We took advantage of the washer, even the fold out for one night to relax to a movie. We enjoyed the privacy and we felt safe there. Great space, thank you for a marvelous stay!
Perfect location, at the right price!
