Castle View Grassmarket flat
Studio | No Bedrooms | sleeps 3
Fabulous rooftop and castle views can be admired from all the windows of this cosy, city centre apartment. Private car parking can be arranged, when available (small additional fee & key deposit required) or there is the NCP car park next door. All city centre attractions are within easy walking distance. All public transport is close by. The flat is situated by Edinburgh's ancient and historic Grassmarket, with its cosmopolitan variety of cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres and quirky shops.
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 are also an easy stroll from the studio flat. The apartment is located in a quiet part of the building, away from the bustle of the main street. It is part of a gated community, with security entry. The Grassmarket is an area steeped in history, retaining its old town charm and character, and providing the visitor with an array of interesting places to visit. A lovely, bright, clean and cosy flat, which we love to stay in ourselves. Many recommendations.

The Lothians region
Edinburgh is a beautiful and fascinating city; nicknamed "Athens of the North" and deservedly so. Edinburgh is unique in that it has two complete mountains in its centre and beautiful gardens in the main street. Flanked by the Forth Estuary to the North and the Pentland Hills on the South, the views are spectacular all around. There is much to see and do, from shop 'til you drop to walking hills so remote that you can believe you are in the Highlands.
Within Edinburgh there are historical "closes" and even an underground street, as well as museums, galleries, parks, theatre, cinemas and a multitude of places to dine from a porridge in the farmers market to cuisine from almost every nationality in the world. Edinburgh Castle is a must for every tourist and the flat is right across the street!
The flat is in the The Grassmarket which is an area steeped in history and has long been a place of entertainment from medieval times to the present day.
Edinburgh, being a port, also has many beaches and there is plenty of public transport to take you there. There are day trips available if you fancy exploring further afield to other cities, towns, lochs or the remote and beautiful Highlands.

"Fabulously located flat. Immaculate and well equipped."
The flat is in an ideal, central location for sightseeing all of Edinburgh! It is exactly as described; very comfortable, immaculate and well decorated. Deborah gave us great directions and information before we arrived and left a great welcome pack which was very handy. It is close to Sainsbury's for any provisions you may want if self catering, but there are so many charming pubs etc on your doorstep you may decide not to! The flat is very well eqiuipped and it had all and more that we needed.
I would definately recommend this and would definately stay there again.
Thank you! Hope to see you back soon!

We were thrilled when we arrived at this really cosy accommodation. It's location is perfect - very close to Grassmarket and the centre of Edinburgh - ideal for exploring the old town. The weather was very cold, but the apartment was really warm! Very comfortable furnishings, very well equipped and everywhere was extremely clean. Many excellent pubs, cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance. Thank you for providing us with such a lovely weekend break - we'll definitely return!
Thank you! I'm glad you had a great weekend!

We couldn't fault our stay in Edinburgh. This particular flat was wonderful, and highly recommended for a short city break. Even though the flat is a studio, it didn't feel cramped at all. The flat is really tastefully furnished and has astonishing views of Edinburgh Castle. The location is very central and within walking distance of all major attractions including the Royal Mile, Castle, Princess Street etc. The accommodation is spotless and the provision of a welcome pack was a very kind touch. I would not hesitate to stay here again on what we hope to be many further trips to this lovely city.
Thank you! We are very glad you enjoyed your stay!

"Lovely flat in a great location"
This is a lovely flat - clean and comfortable with all the amenities you need when staying away from home. It's a great base for a trip to Edinburgh as you are within walking distance of the tourist attractions and shops. There's an amazing view of the castle from the kitchen window too.
Deborah was quick to respond to emails and sent clear directions beforehand. The welcome food pack is a lovely touch.
I'd definitely stay here again.
Thank you for the lovely review, Gillian! Hope to welcome you back one day.

"Fantastic Flat, Perfectly Located, Considerate Host"
Let me tell you how great our experience was at this flat. First, this place is so perfectly located that you have everything within walking distance. Second, you have a host that provides you with a "welcome" package (in our case, one that was custom-tailored for my required gluten free diet--how considerate was that!?) of fresh farm eggs and all the food you need to regain your energy after a long flight or train ride. Third, this place is so user friendly and comfortable that all you need to do is scan the manual provided when you arrive and you can feel at home. I have already let me friends know that this is where they should stay on their upcoming visits to Edinburgh. We won't stay anywhere else when we return to this great city.
Thank you Jay for a lovely review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay so much and hope you return. happy traveling!
