Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Edinburgh is a fantastic place to visit. The Old Town and Royal Mile include such iconic sights as Edinburgh Castle and the Palace (only 10 minutes from the apartment), while the New Town has a wide range of Georgian Architechture and fantastic shopping. There are excellent restaurants, cafe's and pubs and inumerable tours to help you enjoy the city.

Most of the city centre is easily accessable on foot however buses also cover all parts of the city. If you want to go further affield there are a wide range of tours leaving the city centre for places such as Stirling Castle, Roslin Chapel, local distilleries and further into the Highlands. Within the city you can also enjoy Calton Hill which has wonderful views across the city and right up to the Highlands, and Holyrood Park, both of which are only 5-10 minutes from the apartment. Edinburgh also has it's own beach (15 minutes by bus) as well as the Leith Harbour area with the Royal Yacht Brittania.

Edinburgh is not a large city and if you do want to explore the surrounding countryside then you can be out of the city in 15-20 minues.

Abbeyhill

The apartment is located within the Easter Road area of the city. This is a vibrant and distinct locailty with it's own character and only 10-15 minutes walk from most of the city sights, which make it a great base for a visit. There is an excellent range of local amenities and easy access across the city. Within 1-2 minutes of the apartment there is an award winning bakery, delicatessen, several cafe's, wine merchant, grocers, local supermarket, several take aways, pubs and restaurants. You are also only 5-10 minutes walk from Calton Hill and Holyrood Park, both of which are well worth exploring. From the apartment, you can walk to the foot of the Royal Mile and up into the Old Town, right through the historic centre. If you'd rather travel by bus, there is a stop to both the Royal Mile and the city centre from immediately outside the apartment.

From this area there is also good access to the east side of the city such as Leith Waterfront or Portobello beach.

The area also benefits from one of the very rare free parking areas in the city so if you travel by car you can leave it in the vicinity of the apartment while you explore the city.

“Lovely apartment to explore Edinburgh”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2015

The apartment has everything you need whilst exploring Edinburgh : walkable distance to almost everything, close to amenities.

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed the apartment location no thanks for leaving your review.

“Smart apartment, good location”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2014

Nice apartment, spacious for 4 but takes 5, in a good location a short bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh (drops you right outside the train station) but with amenities on the doorstep (chemist, cash point, nice coffee shops, playground for children just across the road). Location has a studenty-vibe which may not be to everyone's taste but we liked it. Buses run right past, which is very convenient but if you turn in early you may want to pack ear plugs!

Owner's reply: Thanks for reviewing our apartment. Glad you enjoyed the location which has a vibrant community feel to it. We have since installed double glazing in the bedrooms so noise from the street is no longer an issue but you still have the convenience of the bus service.

“Convenient, bright, spacious and clean”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2014

Great apartment for family of four with two young children. Excellent communication leading up to booking. We were met at the front door at the arranged time. The caretaker was friendly and welcoming. The apartment is well located. While not in the center of things, it is in a safe and vibrant neighbourhood. We often walked to key attractions in about 20-30 minutes. Many buses stop right in front of the apartment, including one of the airport routes. You can go for runs in Holyrood park which is only a ten minute jog away. The base of Calton hill is just 5 minutes away and makes for a nice evening walk. A pharmacy, grocery stores, a nice bakery, bank machines, and a wine/liquor store are just downstairs. The apartment was clean and the wifi always reliable. Good value. Only negatives: you can hear some street noise and we were not able to get the laundry working properly.

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed the apartment and the convenient location. There are many local facilities and recreational opportunities such as Holyrood Park and Calton Hill with great views over the city. Sorry you had difficulty with the laundry and their was some street noise - this has now been addressed by installing double glazing in the bedrooms. Thanks for taking the time to review.

“Great Location, spacious, comfortable.”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2014

My wife and kids and I really enjoyed our time at the Rossie Place apartment. It was in a great neighborhood with restaurants and amenities close by and within walking distance of the Royal Mile and Holyrood Park. It was also large and comfortable. Only small drawback - saw a mouse one night!

“A great little home for the weekend”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2013

We have a 1 year old. So we were keen to avoid hotels/B&Bs and to find somewhere that was a little more homely/comfortable on the evening, that was clean, had a bath, kitchen with cooking/microwave facilities and parking. This ticked all those boxes. The apartment was great. The cot available wasn't the greatest i.e. no real mattress, but we managed to sort this with a folded duvet. Our bed was lovely, much more luxurious than our own. The flat was clean and modern. It had a flat screen tv and freeview and also free wi-fi. The flat was on the first floor, not a major problem, there was free parking on the surrounding streets (rare in edinbugh) but it was tricky to get a space, we did however always seem to find one or get one not too far away. The location was great - sainsburys very nearby and lots of cafes/takeaways. It was about a five minute walk from the city centre. We'd definitely stay here again
