The space

Large comfortable private room in the heart of the City Center. Actually on the Royal Mile, your bedroom faces South and overlooks the Historic Chessel's Court and is amazingly quiet at Night. The apartment is split level and feels very spacious.

The Apartment is 500 metres from Waverley Train station and the Airport bus link. Less than a 10 minutes walk to Princes Street and approximately half way down the Royal Mile between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. Not forgetting the glorious Authur's Seat where in less than 15 minutes you can find yourself immersed in a mini Highland wilderness with Lochs and amazing views.

Ideal for Festival goers as very close to all major venues. The Pleasance Courtyard is less than 5 minutes walk away. Seconds from many restaurants and bars and coffee houses.

Very comfortable king size medium firm mattress, pure cotton bedding, 10.5 tog goose down duvet and powerful electric heating.
Good quality pure cotton towels are provided.
A hairdryer, luggage weigher, EU, USA and Australia to UK adapters are in your room for your convenience.

Unlimited free use of Fibre Optic British Telecom wifi.
