Royal is a splendid example of classical Georgian architecture and provides the climax to William Playfair's grand Carlton Hill scheme located just to the East of Princes Street. This handsome street is notable for its broad cobbled approach with a fine stand of trees on the northern side and is reputedly the longest Georgian terrace in Europe.

It is luxury apartment with magnificent view, located in the heart of Edinburgh, next to the American consulate with Royal Hotel next door. Huge windows, antique fireplaces and mirrors, with contemporary kitchen and all the amenities. You will enjoy this incredible flat for a very small price. I have homes in the United States but when I purchased this flat and I walked in for the first time in it, I was overtaken by beauty and the light of this apartment. You will be too.
We rented this flat during our visit to the Fringe festival this year. It was a bit of a hike- at least 25 minutes to the main venues, but we truly liked being out of the fray since we were there for 9 nights. The apartment is lovely- high ceilings, beautifully decorated and enough kitchen supplies for the light cooking we did in the am and an occasional lunch. We really liked the fact that the owner also provided soap for the laundry and dishwasher, the sink and bathrooms and a nice welcome package of local specialties. Tea and coffee were on hand and the basics which was so appreciated! so hard to stock everyone's apartment when you are traveling. We left goodies in return- Olive oil, nice shampoos from hotels etc. The front room was a bit noisy on the cobblestone street but we were grateful for the extra bed as the two other bedrooms in back have queen or king sized beds. The neighborhood is quiet with upscale restaurants and small markets are easily accessible. This year it was a rainy Fringe, but the days that I didn't feel like walking in the downpour I was happy staying at the apartment and working as it was peaceful and charming. The owner was lovely and accessible via email and Natasha (apartment manager) was readily available, though we never had to call her! The WIFI worked very well, and the neighbors were fairly quiet (and we returned that favor to them!). Would go back in a heart beat! I would recommend this for people who like to walk and are respectful of furniture and high end apartments. I would not suggest this for young children as there are delicate lamps and it is a quiet building- also the walk would be too far for them- but the park is close! Well- behaved teens are great here as they usually don't mind the walk to center of Edinburgh either. Ideal for active older people. Taxis cost about £6.50 GBP to the castle area up on the hill.
A first rate accommodaton in every sense of the word with every attention to detail addressed. Perfect location and considerate hospitality was provided by Natalia.
