About this listing

Lovely characterful Victorian tenement apartment belonging to an artist and a musician.

The space

This lovely three and a half bedroom property belongs to an artist and a musician.

It is on the ground floor of a traditional Victorian tenement in the popular area of Hillside, just east of the city centre. It is in easy walking distance of all major tourist attractions, museums and galleries, and only a 10 minute walk from Princes Street. Cafe Renroc, a good all day cafe, is only a few doors away. Valvona and Crolla, the renowned delicatessen, is a 5 minute walk, as are The Playhouse Theatre, the Omni Centre (cinema and leisure complex) and a wide range of restaurants, bars, boutiques and local food shops. The best views of Edinburgh can be experienced from the top of nearby Calton Hill, and the foot of Arthur's Seat is about a 25 minute walk away - don't forget to bring good walking shoes!

The apartment is furnished simply and comfortably and retains many original features such as decorative cornicework and working shutters. There are stripped floorboards throughout. A few steps lead up from street level to the front door. Off the hallway is a sunny sitting room with bay window. The large eat-in kitchen is well equipped with oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and washing machine, as well as a generous selection of crockery, cutlery, glass and cookware, and the refectory style table seats 10 people.

Bedroom 1: 1 double bed
The master bedroom is situated to the rear of the property and is furnished with a double bed, antique wardrobe and chest of drawers.

Bedroom 2: 2 single beds
A sunny second bedroom with Arts and Crafts furniture has twin beds.

Bedroom 3: 1 single bed

Box bedroom: 1 single bed

A mirrored bathroom with bath, wash hand basin and WC completes the accomodation.

When a problem arose it was addressed immediately. The kitchen was large enough to accommodate 6 of us at a time but the living room furniture was quite uncomfortable.

This is the second time we have booked Susie's place to visit the Edinburgh festival. it is about a 10 minute walk up hill to reach the centre of Edinburgh. It is a lovely comfortable, spacious, airy apartment and we would certainly book again if we were to return to Edinburgh.

This is a really good place to stay if you're visiting Edinburgh! The apartment is so nice and everything is just a walk away! And if you're short of ideas of things to see and do. There are a whole bunch of them prepared for you in a very nice info folder as you walk through the door.

Great apartment! There was enough space for the 5 of us and we were provided with everything we needed (towels, coffee, even delicious shortbread :)) The location is perfect as it's only a short walk to the town center – if you're one of the sporty kind, then take the route over Calton Hill, the view is just stunning! All in all it was a great experience, thank you so much!

Susie's apartment in Edinburgh was delightful! Exactly as described and pictured. Parking was a little tricky as it's only metered street parking available but we ended up returning our rental car early and walking everywhere instead. The beds were somewhat uncomfortable (coils were very prominent) but the apartment was clean and spacious otherwise. Communicating with Lottie was a breeze and she was very accommodating. The shortbread was also a welcome treat on our arrival! Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Edinburgh.
