The space

A recently decorated self - contained spacious one bedroom flat in a 100 year old Grade A listed historic building beside Edinburgh Castle, one of the best addresses in Edinburgh. You have a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, double bedroom,TV and free wireless internet. From the flat you can walk to most of the main attractions of the City. The Castle is literally just next door. The Royal Mile is a lovely place to stroll, situated just 2 minutes from the front door. There is no parking at the flat but you will not need a car as shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment are all so accessible.
There is easy access on foot from Waverley Railway Station (10 mins walk). The direct bus from the Airport has it's final stop just outside the railway station, so this is also very convenient.
The flat is on the third floor (no lift/elevator) and from the living room is the best view in Edinburgh. You can see for miles!

Due to the age of the building there is some on going plaster works on the public stair, and a few small "quirks' inside the flat. However, none of this should detract from the enjoyment of staying in such a special place.

Amazing view! Easy check-in/check-out. We were met at the flat when we first arrived and were given the tour in case we had any questions about it, which was appreciated. No issues at all. Felt like coming home every night. The bedroom was huge! Would definitely stay here again!

What a perfect location! This was our first time in Edinburgh and we couldn't have picked a better spot. The views are absolutely stunning and it was a great, central location. Would definitely stay again.

The view is amazing. The space is easy to relax in and enjoy watching Edinburgh go by. Location can’t be beat, just around the corner from Royal Mile and walking distance to Waverly. The building is obviously old and the apartment has all the issues that go along with age: creaky…

Incredible location with amazing views. Yvonne's apartment is about a block from the Edinburgh Castle near the top of the Royal Mile. The apartment looks over New Town and the train station. The views are even better than in her photos. The apartment is large, clean and comfo…

We stayed at Yvonne's place for a week in March 2018. Our overall impression was great. The location offers equally easy access to the Old and New Town. The view is fantastic and since the apartment faces Princess Street Gardens and it is on the third (US 4th) floor it is quie…

This apartment has to have the best view in Edinburgh. Be ready for some stairs, but know they're worth it. Yvonne and her co-hosts are super responsive and wonderful. The apartment is spacious and charming.

Previous reviews are 100% accurate this place needs some serious cleaning, especially in the bathroom, mold everywhere. Shower has no knob. Needs a paint job and decent bedroom furniture. Looks like a youth hostel. Wifi virtually none existent. Smoke alarm hanging by wires. Al…
