GROUND FLOOR APARTMENT IN EDINBURGH NEAR ROYAL MILE, FREE ON SITE PARKING, WI-FI

Old Town (Grassmarket) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Free on site PARKING, just a few minutes walk to Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace.

This CENTRAL exceptionally clean GROUND FLOOR modern apartment (non smoking) with one bedroom, living room, separate kitchen and bathroom has every conceivable comfort and convenience for your stay. You will find a free welcome pack on your arrival to get you started. We have a selection of maps, guides, books and DVDs for your use and Wi-Fi (with a strong reliable signal) is also available free of charge together with IPOD docking and CD player. Of course all heating, bed linen and towels are also included in the price.

We provide everything you will need so there's no need to go shopping for the basics like, soap, kitchen roll, etc.

We have decided to let out our apartment to a maximum of 2 guests to ensure the best possible experience. We have therefore been able to provide a comfortable quality sofa in the living room as a sofa bed is not required. We have furnished the apartment carefully, choosing stylish quality furnishings for an enjoyable stay for our guests. The apartment is heated throughout and is lovely and warm.

Access

As the apartment is on the ground floor there are no accessibility problems for the infirm. We also provide a 'meet and greet' service at no extra charge to ensure you have gained access to the apartment and to answer any questions you may have.

Babies under two years old

If you have your own travel cot and cot bedding you are welcome to bring your baby to stay.

Parking

Free private car parking, which is a rarity in central Edinburgh is provided for those arriving by car. There are private resident's parking bays at the apartment for which you will be given a parking permit for use during your stay. However, a car is not

necessary as all the main tourist attractions are within walking distance and Edinburgh has a fantastic regular bus service if you want to go further. Just outside the apartment there are cycle racks for any guests arriving with or hiring bicycles. We reward stays of a week or more with our offer of 7 nights for the price of 6 nights, 8 nights for price of 7 etc.

Arrival

If you are flying to Edinburgh airport, the number 35 bus from the airport stops just around the corner from the apartment or you can take a taxi for £20 to £25. If coming by train, the Edinburgh Waverley train station is just 1 mile away. For those driving, you can park your car for free in the on site parking at the apartment.

Check in/check out times

The general check in time is 3pm but we are quite flexible so just ask if you want to arrive earlier.

Check out time is normally 11am but again if you need to stay a bit longer we can normally accommodate this. Please just ask us and we will try to help.

I was born in Edinburgh and have lived here all my life. I am married with two children, one at school and one at the University of Edinburgh.

Lynn purchased this apartment in 2013

I have lived in Edinburgh all my life so know the city well. I have chosen the Holyrood area to purchase an apartment to let out as I know it's a great location to see the best of what Edinburgh has to offer a tourist. My family and I have been on many holidays ourselves so know what we appreciate and need in our holiday accommodation. We have therefore provided everything we would like ourselves when away from home. I hope you will consider booking with us and look forward to meeting you.

This apartment is new, modern, bright and fresh. It is in a quiet location away from the main road but just a short walk to the Royal Mile. We also offer a free night when staying for 7 nights or more. See our prices for details. We will also consider a 2 night stay for 80% of the price of a 3 night stay, please enquire for details.

My boyfriend and I spent five days in this apartment during our stay in Edinburgh. It brought our holiday from brilliant to fantastic! It's spacious, well equipped and less than ten minutes from the city center. Ideal home away from home! Lynn was extremely friendly, helpful and easy to contact! I couldn't recommend this apartment enough for anyone looking for accommodation in the city!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments and recommendation of our apartment. As you pointed out I do keep myself available for contact by guests at all times to ensure they have everything they need for an enjoyable stay. If you fancy another trip to Edinburgh just let me know, you are welcome back anytime.

The apartment was perfect for our needs. Cosy, modern and very well maintained. Lynn met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know. We settled in with nice cup of tea, everything was supplied on a welcome tray which was great. We walked into town every day, a pleasant 10 minute walk takes you to The Royal Mile so location wise the apartment is perfect for seeing all the sights. When we arrived home each night the apartment was lovely and warm and we slept well as the bed was really comfortable. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh, we will definitely be back.
Owner's Response: I love the way you refer to the apartment as 'home'. That says it all and means we have achieved our goal of making our guests feel totally comfortable. Thank you for your lovely review.

An amazing location near the Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace. Also handy for Holyrood Park, we borrowed the binoculars from the apartment and climbed up Arthur's Seat. What a view from the top, not to be missed! The apartment was very clean and supplied us with everything we needed, even spare bedding and towels which we didn't need in the end. The parking is great and being free is a huge saving in Edinburgh. All in all, a very comfortable and convenient stay.
Owner's Response: That's great that you enjoyed your stay. Yes the view from Arthur's Seat is amazing and worth the climb and so handy being nearby the apartment - only a short walk back to put your feet up for a rest!

The apartment was just what we needed without any fuss or frills. Everything required was already on site. The flat location and parking are its best features, we just left the car on site and walked through to Holyrood in 5 minutes. For us the fact it was on ground floor was essential. All the other facilities were clean and tidy plus the bed was very comfortable. Lyn met us and explained all the bits and pieces we may need to know over our stay. Many thanks for a pleasant stay
Owner's Response: Pleased to hear you enjoyed the apartment, facilities and location. Hope to see you back in Edinburgh again soon.

I stayed at the apartment for a midweek business trip and found the range of kitchen facilities fantastic as I was actually living there and needed the full range of equipment and larder items that I couldn't bring with me or have time to buy. The level of cleanliness was to a very high standard making living there very comfortable. I have stayed in Edinburgh before and the parking has been really difficult but this apartment has its own parking area for guests which made my trip so much easier. Will definitely be back!
Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and thank you for your lovely review. You're welcome back anytime.

Fancy having royalty as neighbours? This fantastically located central apartment is almost next door to The Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's residence whilst in Scotland. Across the road from the Palace is the Scottish Parliament Building and Dynamic Earth. From there, a short stroll up the Canongate leads to the High Street where at the top you will find the famous Edinburgh castle (the route from the Palace to the Castle is known as the Royal Mile). The accommodation is also within walking distance of most of the fringe and festival venues and the shopping area of Princes Street.

Situated at the edge of Holyrood Park, the apartment is well located for access for walks, runs, cycling and climbing to the top of 'Arthur's Seat' the extinct volcano. The view from the top is well worth the climb and we provide binoculars for your use. This walk has been voted the 9th best city hike in the world by 'Lonely Planet'.

Although free private car parking is provided at the apartment, all the main tourist attractions are within walking distance. The apartment is also near Edinburgh's Royal Commonwealth Pool with it's newly refurbished 50 metre pool, diving pool, gym and studios. This venue will host the diving events for Glasgow's 2014 Commonwealth Games.

There is a retail park less than 10 minutes walk from the apartment with a large Sainsburys, TK Max, M & S outlet etc. Meadowbank sports centre is a few minutes further on with it's 400 metre running track, badminton courts, gym, climbing wall etc. The Edinburgh Playhouse is a 15 minute walk from the apartment.
