About this listing
Self-catering, secure entry system allows guests to use Codes on arrival, especially late arrivals. So easy to walk to tourist attractions let alone shopping & restaurants, beautiful Princes Street gardens free to enjoy. Check our Guidebook.
A renovated Artists Workshop, 2 double bedroom self-catering apartment placed in the heart of Edinburgh's city centre and views looking directly at Edinburgh Castle in all its glory (even better if you look for the fireworks) and the chimney tops of Edinburgh's skyline, guests have described it as stunning!
Located on Edinburgh's Rose St, where JK Rowling apparently got her inspiration for Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter books. The perfect place to stay if you want to be in the centre as it runs parallel to Princes Street in the west end. Everything a visitor would want to see is right on your door step. Enjoy beautiful castle views from the open plan living space, dine out in some of the fantastic local bars and restaurants, see the stunning architectural sights or spend a day looking round the shops. It's all on your door step at my city centre apartment.
The apartment comes with a fully equipped Kitchen; microwave, gas hob, electric oven, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, gas central heating, electric shower with instant hot water. All bedrooms come with linen provided. Free WiFi. (Local groceries store around the corner from flat please see my guide book)
The apartment is in the desirable neighbourhood of New Town with the beautiful Princes Street Gardens just a stone's throw away which has open air Cafe, free events, floral clock etc.... perfect place to relax on sunny day. A quick 5 min walk through the gardens will take you into the heart of the Old Town and the famous Grassmarket with independent shops and restaurants.
Arriving at to the apartment could not be easier, the flat is on the airport bus route and the nearest stop is 2 mins away. The apartment is about an 8 min walk to Waverly train station and tour bus collection. The local bus stops are 2 mins away to get around town.
I would like to advise that there are a few flights of stairs due to the fact that the apartment in on the top floor and no lift. If you are disabled or have any problems with stairs I would recommend getting in contact before booking.
Thanks and if you need any more info please don't hesitate to get in touch.
