The Edinburgh region

Edinburgh, like Rome, is built on 7 hills, the most famous of them being the dorment volcano 'Arthur's Seat', Calton Hill and The Castle Rock. The Castle Rock has a 'tail' or ridge that was carved out by nature during the Ice age, it runs from Edinburgh Castle down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse and measures slightly more than 1 mile (Hence the name The Royal Mile). 1000 years ago this ridge became Edinburghs first road. Today, it is known as 'The Royal Mile'. The apartment is set halfway down this beautiful and ancient route. One of Europe's most beautiful Capital Cities, Edinburgh is the centre of Devolved Scottish Government, the second largest centre for European financial management after London and is home to the annual International Festival of the Arts and it's famous 'Fringe'.

There is so much to see in Edinburgh from the cobbled streets of the Old Town to the beautiful Georgian avenues of the New Town. it is a city of beautiful contrasts blending shopping, historic attractions, gardens and plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can relax.

Art Galleries, Museums, Theatres, Cinemas and Concert Halls contribute to a rich cultural life.

The City also plays regular host to many National & international sporting events and is a Mecca for shopping with many designer and specialist outlets.

There is a huge choice of venues for eating & drinking at every level and price imaginable.

Golf, swimming, Mounting biking, Hiking, Dry slope skiing, Histoical & ghost tours and the Dynamic Earth attraction are just some of the things to enjoy during your visit.

One visit will not be enough!

"Edinburgh Fringe 2015 - The return!"

We were delighted to find the location of the apartment was literally round the corner from The Royal Mile, however once down Old Assembly Close and in Tron Square you would never know the hustle and bustle that lies ahead - very quiet apart from the occasional revellers returning in the wee hours making a short cut through. The apartment is equipped to a high standard and we found everything we needed. Our son and his fiancé joined us for 4 days and although the sofa bed in the living area was perfectly adequate, it's a little tight for 4 adults, that said, due to the weather being exceptionally kind to us, apart from sleeping and breakfast we were out and about the rest of the time. A very minor detail was the lack of recycling facilities and the forest of flyers/newspapers/brochures that the fringe generates had be thrown in the bin! Would definitely recommend 16a Tron Square to anyone looking for accommodation in the heart of it all!

Thank you for your review! It is always a striking contrast to leave the busy Royal Mile after sightseeing all day and in less than a minute be through the front door and in complete peace and quiet with the kettle on for a reviving cup of tea! 16A Tron Square is hidden away in a peaceful south facing courtyard which can feel very sleepy and not at all in the heart of the city. We are pleased you had a good time staying in the apartment, and for recommending us. Thank you for feedback regarding recycling …we can advise that if guests leave cardboard separately bagged we will recycle this for you. Many thanks, once again for leaving a review, Wx

"Excellent location, great attention to details"

I stayed at 16A Tron Square with two kids and my husband. The place is very conveniently located, few minutes from bar and restaurants on High Way and 10 minutes from Edinburgh Castle. The flat is very comfortable, with everything you might need (hairdryer, ironing set, wifi, very well furnished kitchen), and very clean. Great attention has been given to every detail, that makes you feeling home. It is much better than it looks on picture. Definitely recommended.

Thank you so much for leaving a review. We were delighted to hear that you had a great stay together as a family. Tron Square is a very safe place for children as it is fully pedestrianised and very quiet. Plus, as it’s right in the city centre, everything’s on the doorstep! We like to add a few homely touches that ensure our guests can have a comfortable stay. Thanks for noticing that the photos don’t do it justice - we agree - and new ones are scheduled for 2015!

"Tiny and ultra convenient"

The flat could not be better located to enjoy Edinburgh - it is literally yards from the Royal Mile, but quiet and secluded. The flat itself was wonderfully clean and well presented. It is VERY small (edging around the bed to get to the boiler rapidly loses its charm), but for a city break it is perfectly adequate for two people - the front room is also very cozy in the evening if you should wish to stay home (but why would you?).

Thank you so much for leaving feedback. It is greatly appreciated, and we are really delighted you had a great time. Many guests feel as though they are staying in 2 worlds …. Less than a minute from Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile, with so many restaurants and bars, but without all of the noise and hustle and bustle! We work very hard to ensure your stay is comfortable and will be reconfiguring the bedroom to make it easier to get to the boiler in the near future! Wx

"Excellent location close to Royal Mile"

We loved the location of the accomodation. Although a little steep it was very close to The Royal Mile close to the Castle, great eating places, and shopping. We only had a couple of days so didn't explore further. The flat had all amenities and although small was quite comfortable. The only drawback was very little space around the bed. enjoyed our stay

Thank you for leaving a review … We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh. The location is perfect for both short or longer breaks, as everything is literally on the doorstep. We hope you return, for longer a longer stay in beautiful Edinburgh. Wx

"Great place to stay while visiting Edinburgh"

We truly enjoyed our stay in this apartment for several reasons. It is located in an ideal location, close to the Royal Mile, within easy walking distance of most of the top sites in Edinburgh. it provides a quiet refuge after a busy day of sightseeing. It truly felt like our home away from home with the extra touches the owner has provided. It is by far one of the best apartments we have let in our travels.

Oh thank you so much for leaving this feedback. We really take pride in ensuring our guests feel ‘at home’ when staying with us, so we are naturally delighted that you found it to “be the best apartment you stayed in during your travels!” We endeavour to make all of our guests very welcome from every corner of the globe. We would, therefore, be very happy to offer you the same hospitality again if you return to Edinburgh in the future! Wx

"Very Convenient!"

You couldn't ask for a better location! Right off the Royal Mile. My husband is on oxygen so we thought the ground floor apartment would be perfect, as he would not have to climb stairs, but this apartment is down an extremely steep road, and so he did have trouble coming and going from there, but otherwise it was perfect for us!

Thank you so much for leaving this review. I agree …the location is wonderful, but Edinburgh is hilly and the Royal Mile has especially steep streets and lots of steps all along it. I am sorry if this caused difficulty for your husband and his breathing. However, I am delighted you found it perfect otherwise. Many thanks! Wx
