WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE:

Bruntsfield is a trendy part of Edinburgh, home to many families and young professionals. The Rorro' is only 5 minutes by bus, or 20 minutes on foot, from Edinburgh's City Centre.

The apartment is surrounded boutique shops, bars and eateries. From bakeries, to chocolatiers, German, Swedish and French cafes, phenomenal breakfast and brunch places, an array of restaurants for all budgets, bars that open onto the streets in summer, and (reputedly) Scotland's oldest pub.

We are only 2 minutes from the Meadows - an expansive park overlooking Edinburgh Castle and a picturesque walking route into town, also the best to view the Festival and New Year Fireworks, or enjoy a summer BBQ.

Getting around

HOW CAN I GET ABOUT THE CITY?

The Rorro' is conveniently located for all the main bus routes into Edinburgh City Centre. Just outside the door you will find the stop for bus numbers 11, 15 and 16 into town. The bus costs £1.50, and takes 5 minutes into the city centre.

  • Bit of panic when I couldn't reach you guys for several days - you need to sort something out for when you are out of the country Gavin! But that apart everything was great: the flat was lovely, in a beautiful spot right by restaurants, Oddbins, a bus stop and the Meadows. You couldn't have been more helpful.

    Very many thanks,

    Denise

  • The flat was beautiful and spacious and like home away from home. If was in a great part of edinburgh close to some great cafes and shops and the best coffee we have had for ages!
    Gavin and Lucee (and Jan) made the check in and out so easy and were lovely to deal with! All in all a very positive experience and would highly recommend their flat to others!

    June 2014
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Edinburgh. The apartment looks as well in real as it does in the pictures and the location is quite convenient, next to a beautiful park and close to the city centre. Even the sofa-bed is great! Gavin was helpful and happy to provide everything we needed. I would totally recommend it.

    June 2014
  • Very nice 2nd floor apartment, suitable for travelling with kids. Everything was well organized. A variety of equipments for children (games, baby cot etc.) were provided in the apartment. The location was ideal to our purposes, even through the apartment is not right in the city centre. Buses to city centre go frequently.

    May 2014
  • We stayed for three weeks at Gavin and Lucie's apartment with our three children. We loved the place and felt like it was our own home. We had everything we needed, including kitchen facilities, laundry, clean towels and sheets. The apartment is spacious and lighted and was cleaned once a week. Gavin gave us lots of tips and information about Edinburgh and Scotland and came over whenever we asked for something. The neighborhood is nice, full of coffee shops, restaurants and stores. There is a grocery store just in front of the building. Princes street is 20 minutes walk. Bruntsfield park is 5 minutes walk. Public transportation is convenient with bus stops just around the corner. We fully recommend this apartment and would love to come back.

    April 2014
  • Gavin could not have done more for us. He and Jan made us feel really welcome. The flat is stylish, well equipped, warm and comfortable. Bruntsfield is an excellent location with easy access to the centre and great local restaurants, cafes and shops.

    To top it all, having discovered that the kids were staying in to watch a film on Saturday Gavin dropped round a goody bag of dvds, popcorn and ginger beer!
