There is a king-size bed (150cm) in the master bedroom with a double bed (135cm) in the second bedroom. A large sofabed in the master bedroom gives the option of sleeping up to 2 further people.

There is gas central heating throughout and on-demand hot water

The central location of Leopold Place means that everything is close by with the majority of Edinburgh's attractions within walking distance.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very well located for visiting the many tourist attractions Edinburgh has to offer and was just a short walk from the airport tram's last stop. Everything was clean and tidy with ample utensils and equipment for self-catering. The owner, Mark, was extremely helpful and responded efficiently and quickly to any queries we had. We would have no hesitation in recommending this as a comfortable, well-located, quiet apartment for either a long or short stay in Edinburgh.

Great Location, clean, spacious, easy access to the city

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I rented Mark's flat for 4 nights, which turned out to be way too short - we enjoyed ourselves so much! The location is great with access to the light rail, buses and easy walking to most tourist spots.

We're both in our 60's so access is a bit of a concern. This flat is very accessible. Mark provided excellent directions for getting to the flat via the rail, taxi, etc. He provided great instructions for everything. He's very prompt responding to emails and checking in with you to make sure everything is going well.

We were very pleased to discover how centrally located the flat is. It's in a fairly busy area, but once in the flat you don't hear any street noise. The plus of being in the busy spot is very easy access to good restaurants (Cafe Marlayne and Shezan Indian Cuisine were the 2 we tried out) and a small grocery store.

All in all, this was a great flat and Mark is an excellent host!

Super apartment

My husband, friend and I spent 4 days in lovely Edinburgh and this apartment was perfect for us. The apartment is well stocked, clean, classy and comfortable. It's also quite roomy so one never felt cramped. It's definitely a great choice.

Edinburgh, being a UNESCO world heritage site, needs little introduction. Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile are all world famous. Edinburgh's architecture is also world renowned, especially the Georgian buildings and gardens of the New Town. Above all, however, Edinburgh is perhaps best known for the Edinburgh International Festival which takes place every summer.

Edinburgh is also perfectly placed for visiting the beaches of East Lothian, the beautiful Scottish Borders and as a stepping stone for the Highlands & Islands. Glasgow is also just an hour away by train.
