About This Listing
Take a look at our 3 (+1) bedroomed apartment, located right in the heart of Edinburgh City Centre on York Place. The apartment is on the 3rd floor which gives great views over New Town and the forth bridge [but is 60 or so steps to get up to!] There is also access to Queen Street private gardens - great for picnics.
There is an en-suite master bedroom and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. The apartment has a well equipped kitchen and is well appointed with dishwasher, washing machine, large fridge freezer, television, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, DVD and Cable TV. Fast unlimited wifi is also included. All freshly laundered bedding and towels are provided.
The bedrooms 1 and 3 have double beds [bed 3 being fairly compact] , and bedroom 2 has a king-size bed. Bed 4 has 2 quality single Z-beds which would be best for children (due to limited head height). The lounge is semi open plan to the kitchen. The lounge has 2 leather sofas, so seats 6 adults and a dining table which can be extended to seat 6. The apartment was fully refurbished and furnished in summer 2012.
On arrival, you will be met by us and we can give you tips on the local area to make the most of your time in the city.
The apartment will really suit families or sharing couples, and those who really value being right in the heart of the city. The best shops, boutiques, museums, wine bars and coffee shops are all just footsteps away. Princes Street is a 5 minute walk away and Harvey Nichols is just a block away. The apartment is on a major street, but very quiet as it is on the 3rd floor. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, but have the benefit of being in the middle of the action! We have access to large private gardens in Queen Street, about a minute walk away, so just ask Armando for the key when you meet him upon your arrival. Please call or email for more information, we are very happy to give you as much information as you need.

Anna provided a very friendly and personal service from the beginning. After confirming the booking, she contacted me on several occasions just to confirm various details and provided useful information which was very helpful to us as we were visiting from London. The neighbourhood was great, as 5 girls, we felt very safe when coming back to the apartment late at night. The apartment was in a great location, and the supermarket a few minutes walk away came very handy on the first day when we got there and needed groceries/essentials to start off with. The apartment was lovely, exactly as it appears in the photos. We could not fault it, we had no issues with anything. It was very clean and the rooms were a very good size. We would definitely stay here again.
The communication and service were excellent. We were able to leave our bags in the morning before check-in and were greeted very kindly by Armando who showed us around and explained everything about the apartment and the neighbourhood.
The apartment was perfect; it was clean and well equipped and on a great location. We absolutely loved the views!
I must say that my Friends and I had a fantastic time and really enjoyed our stay . Also the flat's is located right at the city centre with all amenities and popular attraction in walk able distance . The flat is very specious and beautiful . The flat has excellent modern furniture and well equipped kitchen .
The host was informative and welcoming, the representative at the condo was wonderful too. The condo was in an excellent location and was comfortable and clean. As a constructive criticism, I would suggest alternative towels for guests as the towels were thin and rough. Also, having extra necessities such as toilet paper and paper towels on hand would have been beneficial as these are not expenses/items you think of purchasing when traveling on a mini-vacation. Generally though, we were very pleased and would recommend the rental for sure.
On arrival we were met by Armando who welcomed us to the apartment, he showed us around & gave us the instructions we needed for a comfortable stay. He also gave us tips where to eat & drink too.
The apartment was as we expected with a fabulous view, central to everything in Edinburgh, it was comfortable & lots of little extras left for us.
As we were celebrating our friends 50th birthday we were able to arrange for the apartment to be decorated which was a great surprise for my friend & appreciated, nothing was a problem.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone as long as they can manage the stairs which was not a problem for us.
This is a lovely, well equipped flat with fantastic views rewarding the four flights to reach it! Lots of space for three couples (without using the extra two beds in the smallest room). Location in New Town (at the end of the tram line but minutes from everything) is perfect. Great communication with Anna and Armando.
