We arrived after a week of staying in various B&Bs which were fun but the rooms were very, very cramped for space. When we saw the apartment we thought we'd landed in the lap of luxury. Two spacious bedrooms. Two bathrooms. A fully equipped kitchen...More

About the neighbourhood
1) The apartment is very centrally located with all of Edinburgh's tourist attractions within easy reach (See our map “photo”). Ideally situated for the Royal Mile (5min walk), Palace of Holyrood House (5min walk), Scottish Parliament and Dynamic Earth (5min walk) as well as having the beautiful Holyrood Park right on the doorstep. Nearby, there are also numerous festival and 'Fringe' venues (it's a 15min walk through the park to the famous “Pleasance”), the Grassmarket / Cowgate (20min walk) and Edinburgh Castle (25min walk). In addition, the flat is a 30 second walk from London Road's buses (a major bus nexus, providing access to Princes Street in 5mins, the Old Town, New Town, the Royal Yacht, Edinburgh Zoo etc) and local shops/pubs.

Airport: Edinburgh International: 12.0 km
Railway: Waverley Train Station: 3.0 km
Ferry: Rosyth: 20.0 km
Transport Links are excellent as the apartment is close to several main bus routes which access most areas of the city and beyond. The front of the building (which faces the main road) is recognisable for its curving copper green exterior, while its sandstone coloured back (where the flat is located) benefits from unobstructed panoramic views of Arthur’s Seat / Holyrood Park & beyond.

1) Bus/Airport: The Airlink 100 service (£4.50) runs from the airport to the City Centre (Waverley Bridge), from where it takes c. 20mins to walk to the apt., although we recommend using a phone GPS tracker.
2) Taxis: Are widely available at the airport & cost around £25 (depending on traffic) to get to the flat. Alternatively try calling City Cabs or Central Taxis
3) Trains: Waverley Train Station...
