About this listing
Welcome to your temporary home from home, for however long your travels. Basia and Ze are happy to welcome you into their flat in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town with a cozy room available for your stay.
Edinburgh’s Old Town stretches along a high ridge from Edinburgh Castle on its dramatically situated rock down to the Palace of Holyrood where the Queen actually stays on her trips to town, both visitable. The castle and palace are connected by the famous Royal Mile, the oldest street in town, one mile in length, filled with historic buildings end-to-end and all around. The Old Town is characterised by the survival of the little-altered medieval “fishbone” streets, which are lined with some of the best wool shops, pubs, bars, restaurants and historical monuments in Edinburgh.
Our flat in Old Town is located on Guthrie Street. It is a small side street and its 'S' shape links Chambers Street with Cowgate. The best point about our flat is the location. You cannot beat this location. The flat is in walking distance to everything. Only two-minutes walk is separating you from National Museum of Scotland, statue of Greyfriars Bobby, Meadows parks and Elephant House Cafe, where Harry Potter was written. You'll be standing a mere seven-minute stroll from the Edinburgh Castle, the Scott Monument, the National Gallery of Scotland and Princes Street Gardens, where every December Highland Village and Traditional German Christmas Markets are inviting you for yummy Angus beef burger and delicious Glühwein (a special brew of mulled of wine and herbs). The flat is equally close to Edinburgh Waverly train station, which is where the airport bus also drops its passengers. We cannot forget about the glorious Arthur’s Seat where in less than 15 minutes you can find yourself immersed in a mini wilderness and admire amazing Edinburgh’s panorama views at the same time. So if you are a walker or a jogger don’t forget pack your trainers or walking shoes. You must go for a walk or run around Arthur’s Seat. The best place ever to do it.
You'll be welcomed into bright and airy, Georgian-era two bedroom flat, with its high ceilings and big windows, complemented by wooden floors and all the amenities you'd expect. The flat consists of an open plan kitchen/living room and bathroom with shower.
The bedroom available for you is suitable for one or a couple and, in addition to the comfortable double bed, there is also a writing desk, a chair and a mirrored wardrobe for storage. We always provide fresh bedding and towels. You are more than welcome to make yourself at home and use the kitchen, living space, washing machine and etc when you need it.
