Converted from a stable/garage property in February 2012 this property couldn't be more central allowing guests to get here by train, plane or bus and easily explore the city on foot.
The accommodation offers spacious loft living/dining/kitchen accommodation on the upper floor which is accessed by a short flight of stairs.
LIVING AREA: Relax on the comfortable sofa as you watch the wall hung Smart TV or chill out in the deep armchair in front of the French window while reading. Wireless internet provided free of charge.
DINING: A small table located beside the kitchen area window offers the opportunity to sit and re-fuel.
KITCHEN: The kitchen is fully equipped with integrated fridge (with freezer compartment), integrated dishwasher, hob and oven.
A generous double bedroom, ensuite shower room and seperate cloakroom are situated beneath, on the ground level.
BEDROOM: The sumptous double bedroom is located on the ground floor. The large kingsize bed was chosen with your comfort in mind and the built in wardrobes offer substantial storage for your holiday outfits. An ensuite shower room is located off the bedroom. Towels provided.
Guests are welcomed by host and a supply of Finn flapjack, fresh milk and fresh orange juice, complement the stock supply of tea and coffee.
*Please note that there is a strict NO SMOKING policy within the mews*
Your mews holiday accommodation is located in the heart of Edinburgh's West End village, just around the corner from Princes Street. Haymarket rail station is a short walk away and the new tramway will speed passengers from the airport to a location just minutes from the mews accommodation.
William Street enjoys a a variety of shops, bars and cafes that will suit all holiday budgets. Further high street shops are a short walk away in Princes Street and George Street offers shops such as Anthropologie and Hollister ending with Harvey Nichols on St Andrews Square. Yet your holiday accommodation is surprisingly peaceful, allowing you to enjoy the sound of the bells of the nearby awe-inspiring St Mary's Cathedral.
We suggest.... you wander round to the iconic Brass & Copper coffee haunt where you will enjoy THE best coffee, a fantastic way to start your day from Monday to Friday. Or enjoy a wonderful weekend brunch along at Indigo Yard. Within minutes you will be standing in the shadow of the magnificent Edinburgh castle. You can choose to walk past it towards the historic Grassmarket or climb up the Mound to the Royal Mile where the castle proudly stands at one end with an easy walk down towards Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. Once you've got there you might choose to climb the iconic Arthur's Seat, a hill with an umissable view of the city. (Did you notice that there's been no talk of transport yet? Your accommodation is so central that public transport is rarely required!)
Or if you prefer to get off the beaten track turn left instead of right and wander around the New Town where you can admire the fine architecture on your way to the Modern Art Gallery. After inspiring your creativity wander along the Water of Leith towards Stockbridge - a mellow and dreamy walk that takes you to this small community buzzing with cafes, vintage clothing and artisan shops.
And if this all sounds a bit too laid back then head to George Street for an evening of high class eating and clubbing - hey if the Opal Lounge was good enough for Prince William we're thinking we might give it a visit....

Modern and comfortably furnished home within walking distance from the train stations and major attractions in Edinburgh. Spotlessly clean and unique hideaway during winter.
Colin is a very helpful and thoughtful host, who was prompt in replying to my queries. He also invited me me to check in early as the weather was cold and rainy. The provision of orange juice, milk, a selection of teas and coffee was a nice touch. Thank you for the hospitality!
Warm welcome on arrival and Karen offered us loads of advice and information about the surrounding area.
The flat had everything you needed and in such a great location, only a few minutes walk from anywhere.
What a fantastic property. This is the first time ive used airbnb and I wasn't disappointed. Colin met me & my son at the property and immediately made us feel at home. The apartment itself is lovely and really is as close to the local attractions as described. We wanted a different experience than staying in a generic hotel and this is exactly what we got. Can’t recommend Colin's property highly enough.
The accommodation was perfect. Everything you need for an enjoyable stay was included and Colin helped with local knowledge. The location was great with everything in walking distance.
Colin also allowed for a late checkout and luggage storage. Top marks all round.
Would definitely recommend.
Perfect! Don't hesitate for a second! The tram stops right outside, short walk to the inner part of the city in a lovely area! Bars just round the corner if you want them too! Don't look anywhere else! Flat is amazing and even nicer than the pictures! Colin was a great host, looking after our bags for us at the end and greeting us with lots of helpful information! You also get the best flapjacks I've ever tasted!
Colin and Karen were great host. The house was really beautiful and I am certain we will be back again.
Colin was easy to contact, quick to respond and met me at the door. After a quick tour of the mews, he left me the keys and made sure I knew I could contact him with any questions.
The mews is situated in a great location, within walking to distance to everything...less than 10 minutes to Haymarket Station, basically across the street from bus and tram lines, and close to Edinburgh Castle.
The mews' facilities are great. Very modern, clean, open apartment with a great bed, great shower and comfortable place to relax!
If you are looking for a convenient place to stay in Edinburgh, you won't find a better place than the mews!
I enjoy helping others and previously worked in healthcare before I moved into business. Most weekends are spent coaching rugby and watching my sons play sports. I enjoy running and cycling and would like to get back into classic car restoration - previous successful projects have included two Morris Minors, a Rover 2000 and an Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite.
My perfect holiday involves a good balance of activity and relaxation and I aim to ensure that every guest at The Mews enjoys their perfect holiday in Edinburgh.
I'm married with three teenage children.
