About the neighbourhood
The apartment is situated in a quiet, residential area, only 15 minutes walk from Haymarket train station at the West End of Princes Street. Both Murrayfield Stadium and the Murrayfield tram stop are situated across the road from each other and are less than 5 minutes away from the apartment. The rather beautiful Water of Leith is a couple of minutes away and Murrayfield Ice Rink is less than 10 minutes away.

There is a modestly-sized Tesco on the main road (2 minutes away) as well as a selection of local restaurants, cafes and bars in the immediate vicinity. If you are staying for more than a few days and wish to stock up on food and drink, there is a large Sainsburys supermarket less than 10 minutes walk away.
Getting around
Edinburgh has a clean, reliable, and efficient public transport system that also offers free wireless. Services run day and night (limited services run during the night), and routes can be checked online, at bus/tram stops, or via a free app.

Lothian Buses and Edinburgh Trams are owned by the same company and, as their names suggest, they operate buses and trams across the city. You can pay per journey, or you can purchase individual/family daytickets, which allow you to 'hop on and hop off' most services, possibly saving you money if you plan to use public transport. Daytickets are valid on both buses and trams.

For information on routes and fares, search for 'Lothian Buses' or 'Edinburgh Trams' online.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Edinburgh Airport: 9.0 km
Railway: Haymarket Train Station: 1.1 km
From Edinburgh Airport, a tram will bring you almost directly to the apartment (the nearest tram stop is only a 3-4 minute walk away).

The airport bus will also bring you very close to the apartment, and the bus stop is a 5-7 minute walk away.

A taxi from Edinburgh Airport to the apartment varies depending on which taxi company you use; they usually cost between £18-22 (there is a taxi rank at the airport).
