Charming apartment is set in quiet historic courtyard just off the Royal Mile in the heart of the city's Old Town. With many good shops, cafes and restaurants nearby as well as lots cultural and historical places to visit. This is the perfect place to stay when visiting Edinburgh.
The apartment is tastefully furnished with a slight Scottish influence and designed to make your stay in the capital as comfortable as possible. It's a home away from home and place you'll look forward to returning to. The beds are comfortable and with crisp cotton sheets to insure a good night's sleep. There is 1 kingsize bed in the main bedroom and 2 single beds in the second bedroom, both rooms have views to the south and toward Salisbury Crags.
Princes Street is a 5-10 minutes walk and the castle about 10 minutes walk though it will take you longer to walk to the castle as there are so many interesting places and good coffee shops to distract you on route.
A car isn't required as the city is complact and a good pair of walking shoes are a better idea. The roadworks and constantly changing priority of street signs make it stressful to drive round.
The airport bus passes by the courtyard and Waverley Station is about 5-10 minutes walk.
Please note - The building work on the site is behind the apartment was completed in July 2016 and is now landscaped too and looking beautiful.

The apartment is close to the Holyrood Park which is great for walking or jogging/running and the views of the city from Salisbury Crags are wonderful.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I used to run a bed & breakfast and a few holiday cottages in East Lothian so moving to Edinburgh renting out self-catering apartments seemed like a good progression. Edinburgh is such a wonderful city with so much to offer. It's a great place to stay, it's very beautiful, with good restaurants, art galleries, and museums, as there's so much to see and do. When the Festival is on in August the place buzzes with happy people from all over the world. I studied design and have always had an interest in property so doing up the apartments, making them homely and comfortable places to stay has been very enjoyable.
Why the Owner Chose Old Town, Edinburgh, UK:
I chose this apartment because of it's great location. If I where coming to stay in the city, I'd like to be in the heart of the Old Town, with everything within easy walking distance. The Castle, the Palace of Holyrood, Princes Street etc are all close by as are good restaurants and shops. Coming from the country a good night's sleep is also important and this apartment is in a quiet courtyard just off the Royal Mile so away from the sound of traffic and party revellers. All the rooms in the apartment are decent size. It's bright and sunny which gives it a good feel and the views are pretty. Waverley Station is a 5 minute walk as is the airport express bus terminal so if you want to be out of the city it's easy to do so.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It's such a brilliant location for enjoying all the city has to offer. You don't need a car and most places are walkable what ever the time of day or night. It's such a great city to live in.
