About this listing

The space

Charming 1 bedroom flat perfectly located near the top of the Royal Mile in the historic centre and tourist hub of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

The Royal Mile, Edinburgh’s oldest street, is the Medieval high street of the City, connecting the Castle with the Royal residence and Abbey of Holyrood. This flat is the perfect base for exploring and enjoying the best of what Edinburgh has to offer.

James Court on the Lawn Market section of the Royal Mile is an early Edinburgh tenement completed in 1727. Despite its central location, the flat is quietly located to the rear of the building overlooking a leafy courtyard, ensuring a peaceful stay in the city.

Many of Edinburgh’s most famous tourist attractions are within easy walking distance – the castle is only a 2 minute walk away, and Princess Street, Holyrood Palace, The National Galleries and The National Museum of Scotland are all only a pleasant stroll away.

The flat comprises a living room with two settees (one of which is a comfy fold out sofa-bed), a dining table for two and a TV / DVD player, plus a selection of DVDs and books. A small kitchen off the living room is equipped with an electric oven, microwave, fridge / freezer, washing machine, toaster and a kettle. The bright and airy bedroom has a comfortable double bed, dressing table and wardrobe. High ceilings, large windows and working shutters throughout create a lovely atmosphere. The small bathroom has an electric shower above the bath.

As an Edinburgh native, I will be on hand to offer any advice or recommendations to help you make the most of your stay in the city.

My wife and I visited for the first time Edinburgh and got late at night, even tough Chris was on the wait for us! He received us, welcomed us and greet us as a good friend. Made the check in really easy and explained everything really good. The flat is as shown in pictures, cozy, in an amazing location and accurate. Definitely would come back

Chris's place is in an amazing location - just steps from the castle and of course the Scotch Whiskey Experience (recommend both of these to visit). Being directly on the Royal Mile you would think it would be really loud, but its wasn't as the flat faced the courtyard. Plenty of shopping and pubs near by and a 15-20 min walk to Holyrood Park/Arthurs Seat - a must to see amazing views of the city. A must to stay here and great price!

Chris is really lovely! He was waiting to welcome us at the flat. Was available to answer all questions. Left us fresh apples at the flat. The location is amazing, just 5 minutes from the Castle, 15 minutes walk to Princess street, 5 minutes walk to Victoria street, a walking distance to everywhere. We were a family with a 11 month old baby and found the flat absolutely lovely for a few days in town. We truly recommend and wish the all hosts and experiences in Airbnb were like this.

Our stay at Chris's house was wonderful, the apartment is located right in the center of the royal mile, a very strategic place to go to any part of the city, the airport bus is only a few minutes away. The apartment is comfortable and very well equipped, warm, we felt at home. Check in was easy, Chris is well predisposed to every kind of query. We are happy to have stayed there, we highly recommend it and will definitely return. Thank you!
