Self-catering, secure entry system allows guests to use Codes on arrival, especially late arrivals. Unfortunately we are not able to 'Meet & Greet' our guests but available always for assistance if required please ring via Apps. So easy to walk to tourist attractions, EICC (Edinburgh Conference Centre if attending), shopping & restaurants, beautiful Princes Street gardens, kids play park, bandstand events, cafe etc free to enjoy. Plus good for rugby enthusiasts attending Murrayfield Stadium.

The space

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.

Guest access

We use a secure entry system & keybox giving guests the Codes prior to arriving which makes it easier for late arrivals etc..
Easy walk down to Princes St Gardens, cafe, bandstand & fountain. Walkway to Grassmarket, shops, bars, steps up to Castle.

Other things to note

Being in the City Centre parking meters can be expensive if you have a car. There is a website 'Y(URL HIDDEN) which is useful or outwith the parking zone is Roseburn/Murrayfield & you can take a short bus ride back into west end, as you can walk to most tourist attractions, hardly need your car in the city.

We had a wonderful stay at Maureen's! She was very good at communicating and the flat was clean and well-equipped. The location was also excellent and right in the middle of New Town with tons of shops, restaurants, and bars around. Even being so central it was still very peaceful and relaxing and we had a great view of the castle. We would definitely stay here again!

A great central location with amazing views of the castle. Wifi was superb and communication was super easy and fast. If your travels take you to Edinburgh you should stay here without hesitation. Awesome!

This location could not have been more perfect. Just a few steps to tons of great restaurants, pubs, and shops. You're also a short walk to Princes street which is one of the main streets through city center, and has bus/train stops that will get you anywhere. We were able to finish our evening with a nightcap at a cool pub just a few steps from our front door, yet the place was completely silent at night. It's off one of the smaller streets so you have the advantage of being near everything without dealing with crowds. Description of the place was perfect. Nice big sitting room with a clear view of the castle out of a large window. Two nice beds that were both comfortable, and a clean bathroom. My daughter even spent one night on the couch in the sitting room because it was so comfortable. Logistics couldn't have been better. Maureen sent us the code for the front door and lock box so we were able to let ourselves in without having to arrange a meeting. The one thing to keep in mind is that the three flights of fairly narrow steps up to the flat. They were well worth it because of that view but something to keep in mind if you have mobility issues. If we find ourselves back in Edinburgh we will definitely be staying here again.

Everything was as described in the listing. The flat is nothing spectacular in itself, but the view of the castle is great! Everything we needed was there in the flat, and everything you want is nearby. Check in was extremely easy. We never met Maureen in person, but she was always quick to respond with the app (as we have no mobile service here). If you sleep with the windows open, be prepared to be awakened by sea gulls squawking in the night. Don't call for an Uber from the flat- they wouldn't drive down Rose St to get us. Walk to one of the nearby corners.

Enjoy travelling the world ski-ing, sailing, cycling and driving fast cars when allowed! Visit New Zealand often as relations and business down-under good excuse to go back.
