About the property

Queen Street

These luxurious flats are located in an elegant Georgian townhouse, less than a 5 minute walk from central Princes Street and provide a very high standard of accommodation.

The first floor unit (up one flight of stairs), apartment 2, is bi-annually inspected by the Scottish Tourist Board and awarded 5 stars - a world class grading. The flat is superbly equipped with a 43' plasma screen TV and an integrated sound system supplying music to every room in the flat. The 3 large windows overlook the delightful private Queen Street gardens for which a key is provided. This elegant room benefits from a remote controlled gas coal-effect fire and the two large sofas convert into beds should guests be staying over. The modern kitchen has granite worktops and is fully equipped with a Miele washer/dryer, Siemens dishwasher, two Siemens ovens - one with microwave - fridge freezer, waste disposal unit and wall-mounted LCD TV. There is a 3 ring electric induction hob and a large gas ring to choose from. The luxury shower has a ceiling 'drench' head and 4 body jets. The bedroom, situated to the quiet rear of the property, has a fantastic antique 4 poster bed, fitted wardrobes and dressing table. Clock radio, hair dryer, iron and ironing board are provided as is free Wi-Fi.

The ground floor apartment (no 1) has a similarly impressive living room but has the added feature of an early 19th century wall mural. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The stylish bedroom faces the quiet rear of the building. Please note that the shower room is accessed from the bedroom.

The apartment overlooks the private Queen Street Gardens for which a key is provided. This is a peaceful haven in the middle of the city centre with manicured lawns, mature trees and an array of beautiful flowers and shrubs. There is small lake with an island in the gardens which is reputed to have given Robert Louis Stevenson (who lived on the other side of the gardens when he was a boy) the idea for his book 'Treasure Island'.

If you require parking please let us know. We can provide a garage space a short walk away, subject to availability, for an additional charge.

Great place in the a great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on Queen Street, a short walk away from shopping, restaurants, sightseeing and transport services. The interior of the apartment whilst having the style of an earlier era is very modern in amenities and comfort level. Francois is a fantastic host and you couldn't ask for much more for a home away from home in a major city.

Cozy place

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful flat just in front of the Queen's Garden, full equipped, warm and cozy. I totally remember if you intend to visit the historical city of Edinburgh.

welcoming spacious place, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as seen in the pictures - which is a positive. The high ceilings make a difference in the place feeling as advertised - luxurious and spacious. Francois was very responsive in welcoming us and answering questions about logistics of renting the place. The bathroom, bedroom and living room are all great. And very clean - which is very important to us. The kitchen has what you need for travelers - and a very welcome touch was that there were a few food items - tea bags, some leftover staples, some spices - that if we had wanted to cook would have been great. The kitchen dishes are a bit sparse if you want to cook and serve several people - so plan accordingly. We went to restaurants so in terms of cooking there, we only had snacks in the apartment, and tea late at night.

We would definitely want to stay here again if we came back to Edinburgh.

Fabulous apartment, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Francois' apartment, in the heart of New Town Edinburgh, is absolutely perfect in every way. The well-appointed decor, period vibe, everything-you-need amenities and centralized location are everything (and anything) a visitor could ask for.....and then some. Our travel plans changed so that we were arriving very early in the morning (7:30 am) on our check-in day. Francois not only made the apartment available earlier, but he was even there at the front door upon our arrival - waiting to let us in and give us the tour. Extremely generous and unexpected! He is a fabulous host.

The apartment is perfectly located in the heart of New Town - surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants - and within minutes walk of Old Town and Waverly Train Station. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Two blocks behind the apartment is Rose Street - which is a cute pedestrian area with restaurants and bars. If you want a change from the local fare, we highly recommend the Rose Street Brewery for either the grilled salmon or whitefish. For a diverse (and inexpensive) selection of fresh seafood, hop right next door to the Mussel Inn. We stumbled upon the Mussel Inn on our last night and if we had found it earlier in our stay we would probably have not eaten anywhere else. The food and service are very, very good.

There are a great many places to see in Edinburgh - unfortunately, too many to list here. But if you are planning a visit, you would be very well served to book your stay in one of Francois fabulous apartments. Five stars, plus. Thank you Francois. We sincerely appreciate the wonderful hospitality!
