One bedroom, cosy apartment, sleeps 3, city centre
Hello, I am Lynne and have lived in Edinburgh off and on for 25 years. I started self catering holidays for my own family when they were small, and loved it so much, I decided to offer it here in Edinburgh.
Lynne purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Lynne chose Old Town
The Grassmarket is a great location in the Old Town of Edinburgh. Close to quirky boutiques, owner managed coffee shops and restaurants, many bars, a Farmer's Market on Saturdays and all in the shadow of our iconic Castle, the area is quite simply stunning.
What makes this Apartment unique
The open plan living area makes the apartment very socialable and a comfortable, cosy place to start and end your busy day of sightseeing.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Cosy, clean and close to everything we wanted to see.
Would definitely book again.
Edinburgh Old Town property
Really enjoyed the central location and proximity to the castle, Grassmarket restaurants and shops. Appreciated that the owner was on-site for our arrival to help us get oriented. The property was clean and well set-up for the needs of tourists. The only downside of the property is that the shower is cruise-ship small.
Wonderful Flat in Edinburgh
We had a great time in Edinburgh and what made it so nice was the flat we stayed in was so close to everything. Right beside Grassmarket and literally under the Castle. Within 10 minutes to the Royal Mile and even within walking distance to New Town. Lynne was very nice to meet us upon arrival and show us where everything was in the flat. Thanks Lynne. We will be back!!
Perfect location. Wonderful decorated and exceptionally clean.
I would recommend a Scotland visit to anyone who likes History, Great People and Good Food
Great Location, compact, one bedroom apartment but it all works perfectly
The apartment is in a fabulous location to explore the Old City as well as the New Town. Lynne is extremely helpful and replies quickly to any queries, before and during the stay. The apartment is compact, though there is enough room for plenty of luggage and we don't travel lightly. There was a comment in a previous review about the number of steps to the apartment. There are two flights, but if you're staying in Edinburgh, then stairs and steep hills are just part of the deal. The kitchen works well, for preparing meals, everything is there that you need.We'd definitely stay at this apartment again.
Great apartment in very central area
It was good to have the extra space. Everything worked fine. The only downside was the stairs and a small shower.
The apartment is in a super central location, just two minutes from the Grassmarket with its cosmopolitan variety of cafes, bars, restaurants and quirky boutiques.
A 10 minute walk will bring you to our famous Princes Street and its gardens. Many of the museums, galleries and attractions in Edinburgh city centre and the Royal Mile with the Castle and Holyrood Palace are also a stroll away.
There are good public transport links with one bus stop about 10 metres from the building entrance and many more within 10 minutes walk.
There is a good supermarket just 5 minutes away with a good choice of food. Every Saturday, there is a Farmer's Market on Castle Terrace where you can buy lovely Scottish meet, fish, fruit and vegetable. This is also a good option for an al fresco lunch.
Directly opposite the apartment is The Coffee Mill, run by the gregarious Gino, where you can have breakfast, lunch or tea. And just 5 minutes away is one of the best cake shops in Edinburgh - Lovecrumb. A perfect place for a coffee and cake. Mary's Milk Bar is just down the road with the best ice cream in Edinburgh and for animals lovers, Edinburgh's only cat cafe, Maison de Moggy is also very close.
