About Alexandra Adamson
My name is Alexandra and I live in Edinburgh. My partner is an engineer and I work part time for a property management company. My passion is dancing and my husband's passion is cycling. We have spent many holidays snowboarding or cycling but in the last few years we have slowed down on the sporting pursuits and like to explore new places on foot!
Alexandra Adamson purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Alexandra Adamson chose New Town
If you love historic property and want to experience Georgian character and luxury, you will not be disappointed. The area is a UNESCO world heritage site and considered to be a masterpiece of city planning. We have brought an 1840's property to life and the location belies the calm and peaceful feeling you get when you stay here. The area Broughton has retained it's sense of community within the city, as we also benefit from the local shops and specialty outlets surrounding the property.
What makes this Apartment unique
You would be never think our apartment was in the city so we love the fact that it is so quiet but literally 90 seconds (I've timed it) from Broughton Street where we can shop for basics or specialty items. There are so many restaurants, cafes and bars you are spoilt for choice. I love that we can walk to the main shops in and around Princes and George Street and our new tram system is up and running - 180 m and a 5 min walk from the apartment!

Home away from home, but with better restaurants!
Exceptional property with a great location and Alexandra is a delightful host. The apartment is elegant yet comfortable; there are great restaurants just at the end of the road; and the tourist center (train station, busses) is just a 10-15 minute walk away, even for a couple of 70-ish seniors like us.
Wonderful city, wonderful accommodation - we'll be back if we possibly can.
Many thanks!! 🏴
Attention to detail
A luxurious Georgian apartment in a very central location - easy walking distance to cafes, restaurants & food supplies. Host Alexandra met us on arrival and explained how all the appliances worked.
The attention to detail was well above expectations - shower supplies in the bathroom, perfumes in the luxurious main bedroom, heaps of towels, extra coffees, teas, breakkie bars & condiments in the kitchen as well as an abundant supply of glasses, crockery, detergents and other usual kitchen requirements.
Nothing had been overlooked to make our stay as easy as possible. Our only regret was that we hadn’t booked for a longer stay!, a fabulous place to stay which we can’t recommend highly enough!
Many thanks for the review!
We try very hard to make our guests Edinburgh experience memorable, and with that, an easy to navigate apartment.
Every review our potential guests read here is a verifiable and genuine guest experience - we can understand how they may appear, but we absolutely do not tolerate dishonest sites displaying inaccurate information.
This property is located in a perfect spot. You can take the tram directly from the Edinburgh airport and only walk two blocks. From there it’s an easy walk to the Royal Mile. Our hostess was great to work with; very accommodating. The apartment is beautifully decorated and comfortable.
This lovely flat is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. Just 5 minutes from excellent restaurants and the center of Edinburgh. Alexandra has thought of every detail to make your stay perfect. Crisp white linens, morning coffee, fitted kitchen, fireplace for cool nights. She is a gracious hostess and a wealth of information about the city. So accommodating. A special visit.
Many thanks for taking the time to review!!
Perfect in every way.
From the moment we booked until we left, every aspect of our stay was outstanding. Alexandra provided clear instructions on how to find the property and provided her phone number so that we could update her of our arrival time. We were then met by Alexandra and shown through the apartment. A beautiful Georgian building houses this immaculate ground floor apartment. A large, stunning bedroom is complemented by a similarly well proportioned living room boasting exquisite furnishings ... and full-channel pay TV! The kitchen is comfortable with a two person table arrangement, full size fridge and separate freezer. Dishwasher and clothes washer dryer are also integrated into the modern kitchen.
In summary, we felt that this was one of the best self-contained apartments in which we have stayed. Absolutely perfect!
