Designed by the architect William Playfair in the middle of the 19th century, Carlton Terrace, along with the adjacent Regent and Royal Terraces, forms part of Edinburgh's prestigious New Town district.
This comfortable one bedroom apartment within Carlton House has recently been refurbished and furnished. Situated on Carlton Terrace, one of Edinburgh's most elegant cobbled streets, this second floor apartment is in a prime location for the city centre attractions as well as its famous viewpoints such as Calton Hill & Arthur's Seat. The Royal Mile and Princes Street are both only a 10 minute walk away.
The apartment's position at the rear of the building ensures privacy, tranquillity and a south facing aspect.
Please note, this is a non smoking apartment.
Local Vicinity: As you walk out of the front door of Carlton House and face London Road Gardens, it is difficult to believe you are only a 5 minute walk from the vibrant restaurant and entertainment district of the East End of Edinburgh. The Playhouse Theatre which stages the latest musicals and shows is a 5 min. walk away and Harvey Nichols and John Lewis department stores are also within 5-10 mins. walk. Add another 5 mins. walk and you'll reach the shopping district of Princes Street and George Street.
Parking: Street parking is available on Carlton Terrace on a metered basis from 08:30-17:30 Mon-Fri but with max. stay 4 hours at any one time. Outside of these times, parking is free. You are virtually guaranteed to find a place right outside the property at any time.
Thanks Mark - lovely, clean, warm & comfortable flat in a very convenient location for us.
First, Mark - the owner - is a top bloke. Extremely helpful and always seems to have a minute to talk when you call up.
Second, the apartment is fantastic. All smartly furnished, very clean and spacious. And we were less than 10 minutes away from Princes street by foot. An extremely generous price for the high standard that is provided.
The description of the apartment is very accurate, and even though the third person takes the sofa bed in the front room, it never once felt cramped.
And there's a great French bakery 2 minutes walk away...but Mark'll tell you all about that when you arrive.
29 May - 01 June.
The apartment was perfect for our visit to Edinburgh. Having the kitchen was helpful since we like to eat a light breakfast before heading out for the day's activities. And all the appliances worked and the cabinets and drawers were stocked with adequate utensils and pans . The bed was comfortable, the living room and dining room a nice size. It was also close enough to walk to all the sites we wanted to see. We would book it again if we were to return!
Absolutely loved this apartment in Carlton Terrace. Everything is organised to ensure your stay is pleasurable. From the well appointed kitchen and the spacious bedroom, to the comfortable lounge area, nothing seems to have been spared. Positioned on Carlton Hill, a manageable walk from the main city area, it is quiet and charming. We thoroughly enjoyed our week exploring Edinburgh with the apartment as our welcoming base.
A lovely place to spend a few days in historic Edinburgh. Beautifully appointed, very quiet and comfortable. All mod cons, ideal for a couple, leafy location near the Palace of Holyrood, the Royal Mile, and Calton Hill with its monuments and views across the city to the Castle and Arthur's Seat. Mark, the owner, welcomed us and gave helpful advice about local eateries, bus and taxi services. It's a place we will revisit and cannot recommend it too highly to anyone contemplating a stay in Edinburgh. First class accommodation all-round !
I thoroughly enjoyed my three nights in this beautiful flat. I was impressed by the photos on the website, and the flat is even better in person. A great deal of attention has gone into the design and decoration, which makes the flat warm and welcoming. The flat is in a row of impressive and elegant houses that are situated on a lovely and quiet street. I felt safe walking "home" alone late at night. It is a fantastic location for exploring Edinburgh -- a comfortable walk to old town and major tourist attractions, including Arthur's Seat. It also is an easy walk to Easter Road Stadium. In addition, there are grocery stores, a pharmacy, cafes and restaurants only a short walk from the flat.
All appliances are in good working order, and detailed instructions for the use of the appliances are in the flat. The modern kitchen is equipped with all amenities, including two types of coffee makers (french press and drip brew)! There is a great hairdryer as well. There is plenty of hot water, the heating works well and there is good wi-fi throughout the flat.
Mark is responsive, accommodating and friendly, and it was easy to arrange the booking, entry and leaving of the flat. His flat feels like a real home, and I felt like I was staying at a friend's place. I had a great time, and hope to return soon.
The apartment is on the top floor of an exquisite building, very well appointed. The two of us found it extremely comfortable. We didn't spend much time in it as we were put on the town most of our visit, but cooking, dining, and hanging out would certainly be comfortable here. The bed was very comfortable, the wooden shutters let us block out the early morning light, and all furnishings were top notch.
The location is 15 minutes from the tram, 25 to old town by foot. It's on a very quiet street, and features a lovely view of Arthur's seat from the windows. Local amenities were only a few minutes away.
I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Edinburgh if a little bit of walking doesn't bother you.
Thanks for the place to stay and the flexibility, Mark!
Edinburgh is steeped in history and as well as providing a city break location, it is also ideally situated for excursions to the beaches and golf courses of East Lothian and Fife.
The city is famous for its Georgian architecture, its open spaces and also its festivals, notably the world's largest arts festival in August and Hogmanay at New Year. The cosmopolitan feel of the city owes its thanks to its foreign visitors, university students and of course the local residents.
A walking tour of Edinburgh's architectural highlights starts on your doorstep and should go on to include the Royal Mile and the Scottish Parliament which are both within a very short distance.
Calton Hill, situated just behind Carlton Terrace is a must for any visit to Edinburgh as it offers fine views of the city and across to Fife and East Lothian. Holyrood Park with Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags are also within easy walking distance and here it is easy to forget you are in a city at all.
