Built in 1820, 28A Cumberland Street is a one bedroomed lower basement apartment that can sleep 4. The apartment has a pretty and sunny courtyard garden to the front and a pleasant outlook over a leafy, cobbled Edinburgh lane at the rear. The whole apartment has been renovated in 2014 in a traditional, funky Scottish style that is cosy, comfortable together with luxurious touches. The apartment is also suitable for executive and corporate bookings but not for children under 16.

The one bedroomed apartment has a kingsize zip and link bed that can be split into 2 singles, 2 bedside tables, chest of drawers and built in wardrobe. There is a contemporary bathroom with a bath that also has a shower over. The large, comfortable living room has a cosy living flame gas fire with 2 modern fireside chairs and a leather sofa bed that comfortably sleeps 2 additional guests. There is a TV and free wifi. The kitchen is newly fitted and modern with everything our guests would need including gas hob and electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and washer/dryer. There is also a breakfast bar which seats two.

Upon arrival the beds will be made up with luxury Egyptian cotton bedlinen, with fluffy towels for each guest. All gas and electricity usage is included in the price.

The apartment is situated in an ideal location in the heart of the historic New Town, just 10 minutes walk from Princes Street. Even closer to the vibrant area of Stockbridge with its cafes, restaurants and independent shops. 28A Cumberland Street is ideally suited for many other special events that are organised in the city throughout the year such as the Edinburgh Festival, Edinburgh International Tattoo, Bank of Scotland Fireworks, International Rugby, Champions of Tennis event and the Famous New Year Celebrations. Also within easy walking distance are many of Edinburgh's tourist attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, National Museum/Art Gallery of Scotland, Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh Dungeon, Scottish Parliament, Scots Monument, and Holyrood Palace.

Good bus links, plentiful taxis and tram service nearby mean 28A Cumberland Street is well connected to all parts of the city, including Edinburgh Airport, Waverley and Haymarket train stations.

"Just right."

A perfect sanctuary on quiet Cumberland Street, just a short walk from the city centre. The flat was light, spacious and nicely decorated - in fact I'd go so far as to say the pictures don't do it justice! It had everything we needed for our 5 night stay plus a few thoughtful extra touches. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for leaving this review! We pride ourselves on our personal service and we're delighted you have some lovely memories of your stay at 28A Cumberland Street, and of beautiful Edinburgh. We have tried to make the apartment really comfy and welcoming, so guests feel at home as soon as they arrive … we are also pleased you enjoyed our extra touches! Please know that you will always be warmly welcomed if you chose to return, Stuart & Wendy

"Spacious bijou apartment in excellent location"

I loved staying in this apartment. I was actually working rather than on vacation and it was a lovely relaxing place to come back to after a long day. I liked the decor, everything was easy to operate and the bed was super comfy. I loved the location too and the street was really quiet which surprised me. The Cumberland Pub along the road was great - restaurants nearby. The only thing I missed was the ability to make ice for drinks however that would not deter me from staying again. Loved it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. We are delighted you felt comfortable and relaxed in the apartment. Our aim is for 28A Cumberland Street to feel like a home from home, with some luxurious touches, that make it feel super cosy! We are always happy to welcome Executive/Corporate guests, many of whom have mentioned the location is perfect if working in Edinburgh - just 10 minutes' walk from the city centre and, as you mentioned, really peaceful and relaxing to come back to after a long day. We couldn't believe we had forgotten ice cube trays in the freezer but be assured they are there now! Thank you for highlighting this, S&W.

"Cosy place"

Beautifully renovated place and feel in love with it the moment you walked in! We didn't have a car but city centre is only about 10min walk, located in a quiet residential place. There is also Tesco superstore and Sainsbury local nearby. Highly recommended! Would definitely come back!

We are really pleased you enjoyed staying at 28A Cumberland St. We've worked hard to try and make it a place our guests will love staying in so much they come back to stay again! Our aim is to provide practical accommodation with a touch of luxury, situated close to many of Edinburgh's attractions. Thanks very much indeed for your feedback - we hope to welcome you again in future!
