I am an educator and collector and divide my time between San Francisco, California, United States, Edinburgh, United Kingdom and Palma de Mallorca, Spain. I value beauty in the built environment and a walkable capital city: Edinburgh surpasses my expectations—I have never before lived in a place with so much to offer so close by.

Peter Geiger purchased this apartment in 2012

The well-regarded New Town location is close to the shops and restaurants of Broughton Street. The raised Ground Floor contains the principal rooms of the Georgian house under 13 foot ceilings. The past few years have seen a renewed interest in times gone by and I have chosen a 'Downton Abbey' theme to the furnishings and decoration using reclaimed fixtures, antique furniture and period colors.

The sunny eat-in kitchen, large dining hall, sunny studio bedroom and substantial drawing room with its two vast windows make this flat a very comfortable and versatile home. The kitchen, bath and laundry have all new appliances. Two period marble fireplaces (decorative only, not working), working window shutters and an eclectic collection of objects combine to create a unique feeling of serenity.

EXCELLENT FLAT IN EDINBURGH

  • 5 of 5
We spent five days in this flat. It's a really nice, clean and comfortable place. The owner is a very close person and is worried about guest's comfort and the kind of guest who's going to stay in his flat, so that you will always find it in perfect conditions. It's not far away from city center, and you have facilities (Sainsbury's, shops and coffe shops) close to the place. You will have help anytime if needed. I highly recommend to stay there if you're looking for a quite vacation in Edinburgh with your couple or on your own. You got a good Internet connection.

Owner's Response: Beatriz, thank you so much for your review and kind recommendation and it was a pleasure having you as my guest! Yes, I like things to look good and work well and be convenient—and it's important to me my guests are as comfortable as I like to be. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay.

SIMPLY SUPERB

  • 5 of 5
My wife stayed here in August 2013, for the Tattoo and Fringe festival. We were a little late for our meeting time but thankfully the lady (forgotten her name) waited. This property was fantastic. Best placed we stayed whilst in Europe for our six week holiday. Space, clean, quiet, garden views and close to everything. I put photos of the apartment on Facebook to show my friends and got many responses of 'what an amazing apartment etc'. Everything you need is there, even a bottle of red for us. Its was like being at home as it had all the comforts of home.
Peter, the owner was very happy to answer all my questions.
We were allowed to use the phone, which we did to call a taxi. Also free wifi supplied.
Nearby is some lovely pubs and restaurants in Broughton street, we found a superb Italian Restaurant called Asti. Many great pubs in the street and a few mini marts to buys the food basics.
Ten minute up hill stroll and your in Princess street.
Highly recommended

EXQUISITE ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 of 5
After 8 nights in B&Bs, this spacious flat was most welcomed. The location is quite convenient to dining, shopping, gardens and all the sight seeing that Edinburgh has to offer. The furnishings are elegant with an updated bath. The kitchen is well equipped and the flat has a washer and dryer. We highly recommend this flat for a single or couple looking for easy access to the city and a comfortable respite from days of travel.

LOTS OF ROOM - FABULOUS LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I extended a business trip to stay in Edinburgh on my own for 4 additional days. This flat was everything the photos show and more. Very comfortable, roomy, centrally located within walking distance of everything in Edinburgh. It had everything I needed for a very enjoyable stay. I too felt like I was at home. Highly recommend this flat - especially if you are traveling alone (very safe) or with two people.

IDEAL SPOT FOR A QUIET VISIT TO LONDON

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spend a wonderful week in this Edinburgh flat and highly recommend a stay there for anybody wanting to experience the city. The flat was clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped. Wifi was very reliable and the large screen television was great. The unit is furnished in extraordinary antiques, balanced out by the comfy sofa in the quiet bedroom which overlooks a garden below. After a week at 5 Great King Street, we truly felt it was our home.

Great King Street is the central avenue of Edinburgh's New Town World Heritage Site, dating from the early part of the 19th Century. The private gardens of Drummond Place lie to the eastern end and those of Royal Circus at the western end. It is particularly well suited for access to all the amenities of the city centre with George Street and Princes Street just 1/4 mile away. Waverley Train Station, with regular train services to London, is less than half a mile and there is good road access westwards towards the bypass, Edinburgh airport and Central Scotland Motorway Network. Shopping is just a short walk away is Broughton Street—with one of the best butchers and one of the best fishmongers in town.
