This lovely, spacious, 1 bedroom apartment is located on a peaceful side street, off the famous and historic Grassmarket, in the centre of Edinburgh's Old Town.

The property is situated on the top (second) floor of a traditional, Edinburgh apartment building. It is entered from an external balcony, with bench and planting, where you can enjoy wonderful views towards Edinburgh Castle!!

The accommodation comprises: a pleasant entry hall, large lounge with sofas, dining table and chairs, TV/DVD and fireplace; one double bedroom with views towards Edinburgh Castle, fitted wardrobes, chest of drawers, desk and chair; fully equipped kitchen including oven, hob, microwave and washing machine; and modern bathroom with overhead shower.

Decoration is tasteful with neutral décor throughout and good quality, comfortable furniture and fittings.

The apartment is provided with a free wi-fi internet connection, television with built-in DVD player and ipod docking station. We also have a collection of DVDs, books and games for you to enjoy during your stay. So you will have plenty to keep you entertained, whatever the weather!

This apartment is ideal for a couple and perfect for a romantic city break! We do have a very basic, fold down Z-bed in the living room that could accomodate a 3rd guest, but we do not recommend that this is used for anything longer than a short stay. We also have a travel cot, suitable for babies up to 15kg.

A car is not necessary in Edinburgh as all the main tourist sights are within easy walking distance of this apartment.

*** We prefer bookings of 3 nights or more. During quieter periods, or where we have gaps between bookings, we will consider accepting 2-night breaks, but there will be a supplement of £25 to cover cleaning. Please e-mail me first before booking 2-night breaks. ***

"Lovely accomodation in a great location."

My girlfriend and I stayed here for four nights and were really sad to leave.
The apartment was bright, spacious, nicely decorated and the whole place was lovely and clean when we arrived.
The facilities were fantastic and included a tv/dvd player, internet access, nice hot shower and a well equipped kitchen.
The location is great with good access to the shops and sights and was easy to walk to from the train station.
We received excellent customer service from Susan with prompt email responses to our questions and our arrival and departure was a breeze.
We would definitely recommend this apartment for two people although there was also a fold away bed and plenty of space for a couple more.
Next time we visit Edinburgh we will be sure to try and book here again.

"Great location, clean and very comfortable"

This apartment is in a great location, very clean and comfortable. It was perfect for our 9 night stay in Edinburgh. The apartment is surprisingly quiet considering the thriving nightlife just across the street. You can't beat the amazing view of the castle from the bedroom window and all of the little comforts that make this apartment feel like home away from home. Everything was great from start to finish, no complaints, we would definitely stay again.
