Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in New Town

A wonderful, centrally located flat a one minute walk from Princes Street

This one bedroom apartment is located on Rose Street, which runs between Princes Street and George Street and can therefore boast a superb position in the very centre of Scotland's capital.

The apartment is on the first floor of a traditional building that was built around 1790. It is rated 3 stars by the Scottish Tourist Board and can accommodate 2 people very comfortably although this can be increased to accommodate 4 people by using the sofa-bed in the living room. The lovely sitting room has a 26 inch, wall-mounted, LCD TV which has multiple digital channels. There is a DVD player and hi-fi system (with DAB radio channels). This room also benefits from a remote controlled living-flame gas fire. The fully fitted, eat-in kitchen has quality appliances and includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The shower room has a mains power shower and the double bedroom has a large fitted wardrobe. Wifi internet access is provided.

Great Location Can Be Good and Bad

  • 3 of 5

Amazing location for restaurants, pubs, shopping and getting just about anywhere in the city. Nice little apartment, loaded with everything you'll need and a very friendly, informative host. With that said, the downside of being surrounded by many pubs etc is the street noise. Extremely loud! Expect to be woken up several times a night. At one point the neighbour above actually screamed out the window for people to shut up on the street....which is funny since they were yelling in the hallway waking us at 3am just the night before. If you're looking for a party trip or you're a heavy sleeper, this place is perfect. If you're like us where you enjoy the pubs and having some drinks but want to return from vacation well rested, this is not recommended.

The perfect place to stay in the city

  • 5 of 5

The location could not have been better. It is a little away from the area that gets crowded with tourists but on a little pedestrian street that has pleasant activity. It was within walking distance of almost everywhere in town. I bought bus tickets intending to walk to the edges of the city then take a bus back but found that I so enjoyed seeing the sights while walking, that I just took a variant route and walked back. Nothing was too far. My unused tickets are good for 6 months and I may be back.

The apartment itself had wonderfully ancient steps leading to the first floor (European version of 1st floor) and brought me to a perfect kitchen, pleasant living room, comfortable although tiny bedroom and a complete shower/toilet/sink room. The host was most considerate in welcoming me and hauling my suitcase up the stairs (I am 80 years old). Everything was clean and well cared for.

I had fantastic food everywhere I went. Twice I went to Stockbridge Restaurant with the most amazing scallop meal. The place was lovely and decorated with Scottish artists. It also had white tablecloths, which I prefer. I also happily ate in the Tower Restaurant in the Nat. museum and in the new panoramic restaurant in the John Lewis store.

I fell in love with the Scottish artists on view in the Dundas Street galleries, at the Scottish Modern art museum, and in the other National museums.

I hope I can get back again. I would love to bring someone with me. Alone is okay, but with a friend is even better.

Thanks to homeAway.

Small and cosy in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this little flat. Easy walking distance to most of Edinburgh's attractions - and there are many! Probably most suited to a couple although the sofa bed in the living room is fine for guests. Might be a good idea to bring some earplugs as it can be a little noisy late at night - especially with the fireworks at festival time - certainly didn't spoil our stay though.

We stay in Francois' apartments each time we visit Bonnie Scotland and can always trust him to provide friendly, helpful service.

Thanks Francois - see you next time.

Amazing Apartment!!

  • 4 of 5

First of all, François was very helpful and readily available to answer any questions and give great suggestions. The apartment was clean, cozy and well equipped. Its location couldn't have been better, as it was on a quite street with restaurants and attractions nearby all within a short walk. The main train station (Waverly) was a 10mins walk away. The place would work well for four people, although three people would be better. Overall, a great place to stay while experiencing beautiful Edinburgh! Would definitely recommend this apartment!

very central

  • 4 of 5

apartment is small but adequate. could do with some TLC. Location is fantastic though which makes up for the décor/space. Rose Street is so convenient for shopping and the Old Town. Owner very easy to deal with and accommodating.

The flat is located on Rose Street which runs parallel to both Princes Street and George Street making it a superb base from which to explore the city. You are just a 10 minute walk from Waverley Station on Princes Street so it's easy to arrive by train into the city. A host of shops, bars and restaurants are right on your doorstep so much so the only problem you'll have is trying to decide where to go and how to fit it in during your stay.

Other Activities: Shopping and dining out
