My Grassmarket apartment is immediately next to Edinburgh Castle (as you can see from the window view), the Royal Mile and the Old Town. The Grassmarket is full of traditional pubs, restaurants, coffee bars and boutique shops. It is also central for Princes Street, the main shopping areas, museums and the main city centre tourist attractions. The location is ideal for the Festival, Hogmanay and both tourist and business visits. It is well served by both public transport and bus tours.

Location

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The area really is perfect for a whole range of tastes and whether you're working to a budget or not.
A favourite restaurant of mine is just around the corner in Victoria Street - Maison Bleue - a French, North African and Scottish restaurant that uses only fresh, local produce. Great atmosphere and lovely staff. Mammas is also a great American style pizza, burger diner right in the heart of the Grassmarket.
It's hard to talk about the Grassmarket and pubs without mentioning the White Heart Inn. Dating back to the early 1500s and full of history and atmosphere with live bands playing regularly.
The beauty of the Grassmarket is that day and night there are so many options to be lively, or to quietly soak up the historical scenery.

I'm Amanda. I have 2 sons, Ashton (8) and Clark (4). Both me and my husband Shaun have been raised in Edinburgh. We have worked in Edinburgh. Been to school in Edinburgh. And have now started a family together in Edinburgh. This is our city and we love it. As a host I'm really keen to help make your visit as comfortable and pleasurable as possible by ensuring your accommodation adds to your visit. I love travelling too and understand that even if you are only in your apartment for a short while as you experience the city, it's nice to feel like you have a home from home. I'm very much a people person. I like going to the gym and doing classes with my friends. I enjoy eating out and socialising, particularly given what Edinburgh has to offer. My favourite is Thai food. I love shopping too. And the city offers so much. From the posh stores of George Street to the independents and boutiques around the Grassmarket and Old Town. Music is also a big passion of mine and particularly music that reminds me of my youth in the 1990s. Now that I have a family, TV is a big pastime for me and my husband, and we love our boxsets with a glass of wine at the weekend. With what time is left, I am trying to read more and more. Currently I'm enjoying The Secret and The Power which adds to my own positive outlook on life. I hope to meet you and also hope my apartment can add to your enjoyment of Edinburgh. Amanda. X
