About this listing

The space

A 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.

The best view in Edinburgh. So quiet and peaceful. Spacious apartment.

This flat was exactly as advertised. Centrally located near public transit and very easy to find. Yvonne/Gill were very accessible to answer any questions and kindly accommodated our late check-in. This is a really charming, cosy place located at the top of the hill, right next to the castle. It's quite a few flights up to the flat as well, but the magnificent view is worth it. Would recommend staying here without hesitation.

Probably the best view of any apartment in the city! If you want a bang centrally located place to stay, this is it. A beautiful 19th century building with history, highly recommended.

Absolutely loved the place! Location was probably the best in all of Edinburgh, Flat was lovely (so many resources), hosts were great and helpful - all in all we had a lovely time and we both agree we'd love to come back and stay here again.

This is the absolute perfect place for a stay in Edinburgh - beautiful flat, ideal location, and stunning view! Just steps from the castle, pubs, restaurants, shops, Old Town, and New Town. I can't recommend this highly enough!

Pros: - Unbeatable location. Literally right next to the castle. - Astonishing views. - Owner was very helpful and always answered quickly. - Heating was adequate even though it was freezing outside. - Very clean and comfortable. Cons: - 3rd floor with no lift. - Very old TV: It was impossible to watch Netflix or Plex, nor cast it from the phone.
