Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Edinburgh and Lothians - Leopold Place

2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4-6

Leopold Place is a large (100 m2), quiet, city centre basement flat with small private garden to the rear. The front of the property faces south making the living/dining room bright and airy whilst the bedrooms are situated to the rear. There is a private front courtyard ensuring privacy from the road above.

The kitchen adjoins the living area and is equipped with Siemens appliances throughout including oven, electric hob, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Other kitchen appliances include microwave, cafetiere, kettle and toaster.

The dining area of the living room seats 4 but with the option of extending the table to seat 6. HD digital TV is at your disposal.

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. Many of the venues for the Edinburgh International Festival are also within a short walking distance and the Playhouse Theatre is situated just 2 mins walk from the apartment. John Lewis department store and the Omni entertainment centre are also less than 5 mins walk away.

Valvona & Crolla, arguably Edinburgh's best delicatessen, is literally around the corner.

One of the nicest apartments we have stayed at in our travels. Great location, large, clean, well appointed and nicely decorated place. We would stay again in a moment. Mark was very helpful and available.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (two adults and three children, aged 12, 10 and 7) stayed for 4 nights at Marks flat. The experience was fantastic. Great location, walking distance to Tesco´s, John Lewis and a great variety of shops and restaurants. Very upscale neighbourhood. The flat is extremely quiet !!! Once you are inside you totally forget you are in a busy area. I have never experience that in any other flat I have stayed in. The first night we stayed there we overslept because the blackouts were fantastic and the lack of noise made us sleep more than what we are used to. Yet, once we left the flat, we found ourselves in the middle of Edinburgh!!

The house itself is very comfortable. Lovely gourmet kitchen, huge bedrooms, very comfortable living and dining area, beautiful georgian windows and very important to me...washer-dryer that made our stay much easier!!

Mark is a very kind and warm person to deal with and made our check in and check out easy and trouble free. Thank you so much Mark!!! we hope to come back soon, we fell in love with Edinburgh and your flat!!

Fantastic place- beautiful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 absolutely loved it- warm and cozy- a perfect place to travel to for Christmas. The kitchen was well stocked and the bedrooms were a good size. The beds were fairly comfortable, but we couldn't find bedding for the futon. Overall, it was a great experience. We absolutely would stay again and would love to spend more time in Scotland.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay in my apartment Stephen. I'm sorry you didn't find the bedding for the sofabed but the duvet is incorporated within the bed itself and I had already made the bed up with the fitted sheet. Kind regards, Mark

Clean, well equipped, convenient location close to city centre.

  • 5 of 5

Mark was very helpful and we received all the details we needed to get to the place and make ourselves home. Location and size and facilities were all very good. Internet didn't work but it may have been due to the atrocious weather. Would definitely recommend a place like Mark's.

10 Days in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment as our base of operations while touring Edinburgh and the Scottish countryside. It was an easy walk to the Royal Mile (although up hill!) and very easy access to the city buses, tour buses, and tram. Loved being able to relax and eat at the apartment or enjoy the neighborhood restaurants. Very safe and quiet. Mark sent us all the necessary information before we left the U.S. and the apartment was ready for us when we arrived. Highly recommend.

Would have loved to have stayed much longer and look forward to a return trip soon!!!

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.
