2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Edinburgh, Scotland
This beautifully presented city centre apartment sits opposite the Queens Residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the foot of the Royal Mile, and only a few metres from Scotlands controversial Parliament Building. It is on the 3rd and 4th floors of a block housing 4 flats, surrounded by shared gardens. <BR><BR>The setting could not be more central but it is set back from the road so suffers no excessive noise – even when Her Majesty fires the cannons. Almost impossibly, for its location, you have your own parking. A short walk places you at the heart of 1200 years of Scottish History (most of it gory). A few more minutes will take you to all the commercial, cultural and social centres. Waverley Railway Station is within 0.5 miles, and the apartment is situated on the route taken by all the major City Bus Tours. <BR>... Read more

David and Juquie were very helpful, polite and willing to solve some problems that we faced upon our arrival. Very good location, in the end of the royal mile, next to Hollyrood palace, approx 15mins walk to the castle. Would...

This is a spacious and comfortable property which offers great value for money. The lounge has 2 comfy sofas and a large TV. There are views across to the crags. The kitchen has all the fittings and appliances you could want including a rather snazzy coffee maker! Basic provisions were supplied by the owners but it is easy to walk...

We rented this property from in May for four nights as part of a longer trip to Scotland. This is the first time that I rented a property through tripadvisor and I was very impressed. The property is located at the end of the royal mile, making it handy to most amenities like a grocery store, restaurants and some of...

About the neighbourhood
This spacious apartment is enviably situated just opposite the grounds of Holyrood Palace and a short walk to the award winning Scottish Parliament. It forms part of a small 1960's development. It is ideally located for those wishing to explore Edinburgh on foot as most of the major sights are extremely close at hand. <BR><BR>Visitors will enjoy wandering along the Royal Mile and exploring the many small alleyways which are densely populated with attractive shops and restaurants. Alternatively, Holyrood Park is on your doorstep and the energetic can be at the top of Arthur's Seat in less than half an hour where the spectacular city views more than make up for the climb.
