Best places for Edinburgh apartments

  • Edinburgh Castle: No matter where you book your apartment in Edinburgh, you're likely to see Edinburgh Castle on the skyline. This historic fortress stands tall on top of Castle Rock, and booking your apartment nearby can grant you convenient access to the historic structure. Not only can you see the legendary castle in its well-preserved glory, but reenactors frequently stage shows with period costumes and weapons to offer entertainment and insight into the building's history. Additionally, you can hear the firing of the One O'Clock Gun every day at 1 p.m, a tradition that dates back to 1861.
  • New Town: If you're looking to be in the centre of the action, New Town might be the perfect place to book your apartment rental. The area dates back to the 18th century, so you'll still find extensive neoclassical and Georgian period architecture, especially on Princes Street. That street is home to historical architecture as well as extensive shopping opportunities, while George Street is home to some of the best bars in town. You can even see the stunning Old Royal High School on Calton Hill, which was constructed in a striking Greek Revival style.
  • Old Town: While Edinburgh's New Town area has a history dating back a few centuries, Old Town is the oldest part of the city, dating back to the Middle Ages. When you book your apartment rental here, you'll find yourself surrounded by Reformation-era buildings, especially if you're by Cockburn Street. In this area, you'll also find some of the most iconic buildings in Edinburgh, including the St Giles' Cathedral, the University of Edinburg's Old College and the Scottish Parliament Building. Booking an apartment may also put you in some of the oldest residential high-rises in Scotland.
