Newly renovated city centre apartment a stones throw from Hollyrood Palace
Beautiful newly renovated and refurbished first floor apartment, located in a prime city centre location only a few minutes walk from the Royal Mile and the main Festival Venues! The apartment is situated in a traditional Edinburgh Georgian building in a quiet residential area. It backs onto Holyrood Park - a popular and safe green oasis in the City Centre - and Holyrood Palace is a stone's throw from our front door... when the Queen is in residence you are quiet literally her neighbour!
While we can't promise that our apartment is a match for the Queen's Palace next door - or provide you with a private butler... we can promise that you'll have a very comfortable stay here and everything you need is provided!
The apartment has free super fast 100mb Wi-Fi.
There are beautiful real oak wooden floors throughout with large rugs for comfort in the bedroom and living area! The apartment has an open plan kitchen and lounge area which is bright and sociable and separated by a breakfast bar. You have full use of the fully fitted and well equipped kitchen - with oven, induction hob, microwave, toaster and kettle. There is also a fridge with small freezer compartment and there is a washing machine and tumble dryer, iron and ironing board. In the comfortable and bright lounge/living area there is a flat screen TV and sofa (this can be converted into a double bed).
There is a shower room with toilet. The double bedroom, with new bed and super comfy high quality mattress, has storage space to hang clothes, a mirror, chair and clean freshly laundered bed linen and towels. There is a hairdryer for your convenience.

My brother and I own the property. We both live in the city centre - very close to the property. I've lived in Edinburgh for the last few years and Ben studied at the University of Edinburgh and has remained in Edinburgh ever since. We both share a love of travel and have travelled extensively - but always end up back in the world's best city, in the world's best country!

Comfortable and convenient.
This is a great efficiency apartment in a great location. Very clean and comfortable. There's a wonderful and thoughtful guide book with in depth suggestions of places to visit and eat. The location is quiet, safe, and friendly and perfectly located for touring the town. Our host was quick to be in touch and they allowed us to check in our bags early as our flight came in early.
Everything we needed
Well placed, easy to park, everything we needed.
All the needed amenities for a several day stay in the city of Edinburgh. The location was very good, close in for the walk to the Palace, park and Castle. Very clean and new, easy for a meal to cook in when you have had enough of eating out. The neighborhood looks questionable at first, but once you realize you are in a very old part of the city, it’s no different then the area all around the Mile and quite safe for walking at night. We were able to find parking each of our days, a nice benefit for being just a little off the inner city beaten path. Great welcome email info, lots of good tips for food and things to do in the area. Thanks guys!
Very nice flat with large bedroom. Has Wi-Fi included.

You are based in a perfect location to enjoy the wonderful City of Edinburgh and we hope you will have a really fantastic time in our Milton Street flat and love the City as much as we do. The Royal Mile Close to the Royal Mile in the historic heart of Edinburgh, we think our Milton Street accommodation offers the perfect location for a fantastic time. Whether you are visiting for a day or two or much longer there is so much to discover. Within walking distance of the flat you will be able to visit museums, restaurants, and shops; explore the closes, wynds and hidden gems; and enjoy beautiful views across the city to the Firth of Forth. Based in the Old Town and within a World Heritage site, the area is culturally and historically important to the city and jam packed with things to see and do. A ‘Scots mile’ long, and connecting two royal residences (the Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse), the Royal Mile is also home to parliaments old and new, law courts, a cathedral and churches, and a vast range of visitor attractions, walking tours, shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. Unsurprisingly, the Royal Mile is one of the most well-known and most visited streets in Edinburgh. History of The Royal Mile The Royal Mile certainly has history: when you walk down the street you start at an extinct volcano and continue down a slope that was formed by the retreat of an ice age over 325 million years ago. By the 12th century, this had become the main street of the adjoining burghs of Edinburgh and Canongate. The Royal Mile is actually made up of four connecting streets: at the top (west) is Castlehill, then Lawnmarket, High Street and Canongate. Dozens of steep pedestrian closes lead off the street, and are worth exploring to find many of the area’s hidden gems. Head down Dunbar’s Close to find a tranquil garden just seconds away from the hustle and bustle of the street. Significant Landmarks The Royal Mile features a number of significant landmarks. Edinburgh Castle is a world-famous attraction, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse is still the Queen’s official residence in Scotland. Opposite the palace is the Scottish Parliament, opened in 2004, and free to visit for tours of the building and its art collection, and of course to see parliament in debate. Parts of St Giles Cathedral date from the 14th century: inside you can see medieval stonework, Victorian stained glass windows, and take a tour up onto the roof for spectacular views. And just behind the cathedral is the magnificent 17th century Parliament Hall with its hammer beam roof – still used today by lawyers and their clients to discuss cases and also free to visit. Attractions There are numerous attractions that are worth a visit. They include the Camera Obscura, the Scotch Whisky Experience, Real Mary Kings Close, the Museum of Childhood, the Storytelling Centre, the Museum of Edinburgh, the People’s Story Museum, the Canongate Kirkyard, and Our Dynamic Earth which nestles below Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park. A variety of walking tours begin on the street, with subjects to suit every taste, from history to ghosts to literature. Shopping You will find plenty of opportunities to buy cashmere, tweed, tartan and Scottish specialist food and drink. The street and closes are also home to a number of independent businesses: browse antique jewellery at Royal Mile Curios, or treat yourself to Scottish fare at Cranachan and Crowdie, Scotland’s oldest independent whisky bottler, Cadenheads, or the Cigar Box, or pick up Christmas decorations year round at Nutcracker. Specialty shopping streets such as St Mary’s, Victoria and Cockburn Streets are all just minutes away. Eating The Royal Mile offers a range of eating out options. There are fine dining establishments such as Wedgwood, Angels with Bagpipes, Cucina at The G&V Hotel and Michael Neave Kitchen and Whisky Bar. For something more traditional, try one of the many local bars such as the Royal MacGregor, the Whiski Bar, Monteiths and Kilderkin. For take away food, Oink is a must-visit and if you are feeling particularly naughty, the Clam Shell offers the now legendary deep fried mars bar in batter. Fancy a picnic? Stock up on Scottish deli products at Cranachan and Crowdie in the Canongate and find a spot in Holyrood Park to enjoy the best of our Scottish larder.
