Edinburgh City Centre. The first floor apartment dates from 1804 and is located in the west end of the Georgian New Town by Charlotte Square. Edinburgh's wealth of excellent restaurants, bars art galleries and the fine shops of George Street are at your doorstep. The property is decorated and furnished to a high standard. Original period features including a bow end sitting room with marble fireplace and wooden flooring and working shutters throughout the property, are complimented by modern bathrooms and bedrooms and a very well-equipped kitchen with large dining area that will easily sit 8 people. Access to extensive private gardens in Queen Street is included.
I would like to recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful property in the centre of Edinburgh, i do not think you could get much closer!
We were a group of 6 female family members who wanted somewhere that was close to the shops and cocktail bars on George Street.
This place was ideal with it being a 10 second walk round the corner.
The flat itself was decorated to a high standard with lovely period features and i would definitely look to book this flat again on our next outing to Edinburgh.
Couldn't have a better location. The apartment overall is spacious and the kitchen is very well supplied.
Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, neither of them ensuite. One is a good size if a bit industrial as it also contains the washer. The other one is microscopic. Beds are comfortable. Bedrooms are a bit sparse. We had to move a chair into ours to serve as a night table.
Ideal location within walking distance to so many sites. Bring earplugs to block the street noise as the bedrooms overlook a very busy main road. Highly recommend!
Where do I begin? This was an absolutely amazing place to stay. We were a party of five adults, two of which were elderly/mildly disabled (bad hips and knees) adults.
We were met by Milly and her daughter upon our arrival. Milly showed us around, explained all the necessary information (electrical outlets, light switches, Internet, extra bedding and towels, etc.
BEDROOMS/BATHROOMS: There are three bedrooms (1 King and 2 queens) and two bathrooms. Also, the king bedroom had extra twin beds so it could sleep even more!!! There are plenty of extra towels and tons of extra bedding. All of the rooms have wooden shutters that 100% block out the sun and most street noise. Also, the windows opened in case you needed some extra circulation. There are outlets everywhere!!! It's so convenient for everyone to charge all of their devices.
Our stay at this flat was in the middle of our 10-day trip so we really needed some space to relax. This flat provides that. Two huge leather sofas and two comfy leather chairs allowed us to lounge comfortably. Also, there is an Apple TV so we were able to log-in and rent a movie one night.
The kitchen is fully stocked and we cooked breakfast and dinner almost every night. All of the appliances are top of the line. There is even a binder with the instruction manuals for most appliances. The fuse to operate the gas range, hood exhaust and light was tricky to find. If you are looking at the sink, there is a little piece of wall to your left. The fuse is located on the opposite side of that little piece of wall. We found the dining area needed a little more light so we used the lights on the hood and we were fine!!
There was a Co-op grocery about 10 minutes away on Frederick Street right near its intersection with George Street. It had everything we needed.
That's right you have access to gorgeous private garden. You would be remiss to skip a pack lunch there.
Book it now!
We had a party of 8 (including two small children) and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. There was lots of space and light, plenty of towels and bedding, a lovely kitchen, and the location was great. We also really appreciated how responsive the owner was to our questions! We would highly recommend.
Williams apartment is really quite fantastic. The chefs kitchen is AMAAZING! The apartment is very very spacious with plenty of room for all 7 of us to sit together at the big kitchen table or on the comfy leather sofas and chairs! The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable and there were plenty of pillows supplied as well. The bathrooms were great and the big bathroom shower pressure was AWESOME! The up-keep of the apartment is really really good as well. Things were very clean and tidy. That being said, There are a just a few minor issues people should be aware of...
First off, in the city of Edinburgh they are not allowed to put satellite dishes on top the roofs of these historical buildings. And as William informed me, cable cannot be run to his specific apartment either. So as far as television goes, he has supplied the new Apple TV. It is a great option but may not be suitable for all. Also for you Americans...none of our HBOGO, SHOWTIME ANYTIME or really ANY American Channel apps will work over here or anywhere outside of the states for that matter. So just know that you will only be able to get BBC tv shows for free on Apple TV. You can stream live BBC news channel but that is about it. You can log into his appletv with your apple I.D. And password of course which will give you all of your own apps and such just know that Netflix and Hulu and ANY TV APP from the states will not work overseas. So basically, your tv watching is extremely limited. (We watched DOWNTON ABBY episodes!;)
Also...we had a terrible time getting the door off the street open every time we were coming back to the apartment. The big lock on that door was really really tough to unlock for some reason. So know that it will require patience and a lot of jiggling to get those keys to unlock that first door.
Aside from these very minor issues, the apartment was simply lovely and big and could not have been more perfect for my family of 7!! (Four adults, three teens!). You will LOVE this apartment should you choose to rent it!;) oh and hair dryers are provided for you Americans! ONE MORE THING...(for my fellow Americans again)...it is against their building codes to put outlets in bathrooms. So know that blow drying or curling hair or shaving has to be done in bedrooms or living areas etc. (I was SOO perplexed at first as to why there were no outlets in ANY bathrooms in London!! So I asked and I was told it is the building codes in England and the U.K. and also France!
