The space

This lovely, spacious, 1 bedroom apartment is located on a peaceful side street, off the famous and historic Grassmarket, in the centre of Edinburgh's Old Town.

The property is situated on the top (second) floor of a traditional, Edinburgh apartment building. It is entered from an external balcony, with bench and planting, where you can enjoy wonderful views towards Edinburgh Castle!!

The accommodation comprises: a pleasant entry hall, large lounge with sofas, dining table and chairs, TV/DVD and fireplace; one double bedroom with views towards Edinburgh Castle, fitted wardrobes, chest of drawers, desk and chair; fully equipped kitchen including oven, hob, microwave and washing machine; and modern bathroom with overhead shower.

Decoration is tasteful with neutral décor throughout and good quality, comfortable furniture and fittings.

The apartment is provided with a free wi-fi internet connection, television with built-in DVD player and ipod docking station. We also have a collection of DVDs, books and games for you to enjoy during your stay. So you will have plenty to keep you entertained, whatever the weather!

This apartment is ideal for a couple and perfect for a romantic city break! We do have a very basic, fold down bed that could accomodate a 3rd guest, but we do not recommend that this is used for anything longer than a short stay. Oh - and we have a lovely travel cot for little people.

A car is not necessary in Edinburgh as all the main tourist sights are within easy walking distance of this apartment.

*** We prefer bookings of 3 nights or more. During quieter periods, or where we have gaps between bookings, we will consider accepting 2-night breaks, but there will be a supplement of £25 to cover cleaning costs. Please e-mail me first before booking 2-night breaks. Minimum booking applies over Christmas/New Year ***

Susie & Amit were such wonderful hosts. Communications from the moment I booked right through to the time I left were timely, helpful and accurate. This property is perfectly located for visitors on foot by not only being in the shadow of the castle but with bus stops and taxis available right at the bottom of the street. Also at the bottom of the street is a wonderful Farmer’s Market on Saturdays with fruits & vegetables, breads, various cooked foods and artisans crafts, a true delight! The accommodations were very clean, neat, wonderfully decorated, comfortable, great views, WiFi throughout, tv, dvd...just felt like home the minute I stepped through the door. I look forward to another stay with Susie and Amit as soon as my wife retires, too! Thank you for sharing your wonderful flat with me and helping me throughout my stay! With sincerest regards, Michael from Massachusetts

This place is everything it says it is and more. Great central location. Very good value. Very private and somewhat secluded but so close to everything. You'll love this place. Susan and Amit are fantastic people too. Very nice and helpful.

Look no further - if you're going to Edinburgh, stay here! Amit and Susan are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and the apartment has all the comforts of home. Best of all, it is right in the heart of the action in the Grassmarket, and just minutes from the Royal Mile. The Royal Military Tattoo was happening at the castle during our stay, and we had the magical experience of sitting in the bedroom, listening to all of the music and watching the fireworks like we had a front row seat! I highly recommend Susan and Amit's place to every visitor to this beautiful city.

The pictures very accurately represent the apartment. It is clean and comfortable. The location is excellent if you plan to sightsee. The hosts were very communicative and prompt in their responses and exceptionally helpful. They were especially helpful in preparing the apartment for our arrival by providing a crib for our infant child. I would absolutely recommend staying here. The apartment is located up a reasonably steep hill and up several flights of stairs, so it might not be a good fit for those with mobility issues. But, for anyone else, this is an exceptionally good value for money with excellent hosts and nearly unbeatable location.

My wife and I stayed at Susan & Amit's place while were on our honeymoon in Scotland and their hospitality was above and beyond. For starters, they let us check-in early since our flight landed in the morning and when we arrived, there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the refrigerator. The flat is perfectly located in the city. We were within walking distance to everything and since it's down a side street the evenings were quiet too. The view of the castle was great despite the temporary amphitheater that was set up in front of it. We were both very happy with our stay and highly recommend Susan & Amit's place to anyone looking to visit Edinburgh.

Perfect place, just book it! Walking distance to the grassmarket area, castle, royal mile, and pretty much the entire city. Susie and Amit were excellent hosts and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. They were easy to communicate with which took all stress out of the trip. They provided excellent recommendations and the location couldn't have been better. Thanks again!
