'Parkside' is a central (ground floor) 1 bedroom modernised flat, in a traditional Scottish tenement. Within 5mins walk of Scotland’s premier tourist hub, namely the Royal Mile/Holyrood Palace/Scottish Parliament/Arthur’s Seat area. A 5mins walk in the other direction takes you to London Road, a major bus nexus providing access to Princes Street (5mins), routes to the Old/New Town, the Royal Yacht (15mins) & Edinburgh Zoo (30mins) etc. The apartment has FREE WiFi/Parking & is 5mins away from shops.
This central Edinburgh (see our map “photo”) apartment occupies a quiet position on the ground floor of a traditional Scottish tenement building, situated near the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac that provides pedestrian access to Holyrood Park. There is a Secure (buzzer) Entry System with an intercom providing additional security.
The apartment is situated pretty much as close as you can get to all the historic Old Town sites and visitor attractions in Edinburgh with free on street parking. Most of central Edinburgh is unfortunately (expensive!) metered parking zones.
The apartment comprises an attractive, bright, open plan living room / dining area which benefits from double glazing & (“Nest” controlled) central heating. It's a lovely open and comfortable living area with plenty of room to kick back and relax after a hard day out seeing the sights or attending a work event. The living room has a large sofa bed which pulls out very easily to form a good sized (6Ft 7') double bed.
The modern kitchen is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven and gas hob, microwave as well as heat, carbon monoxide & smoke detectors. In the vicinity there are a number of smaller shops as well as (5mins walk) the substantial Meadowbank shopping centre that includes a Sainsburys, TK Maxx and other high end outlets. However, for those that prefer to dine out, cosmopolitan Edinburgh is renowned for its large selection of restaurants, with a variety of restaurants / pubs close by.
There is a spacious bedroom with a European King sized bed (6Ft 6' by 5Ft 2'), double wardrobe for storage and table & chairs to quietly relax in (the large window is double glazed). The shower room, with wash hand basin, has been recently modernised to a high standard. Off the hallway there is a toilet with a wash hand basin.
A pleasant 5 minute walk through Holyrood Park takes you to the buses at the foot of the Royal Mile or alternatively to London Road, a major access road, whose numerous bus routes provide access to the main tourist and shopping destinations.
Whenever possible, guests will be welcomed personally at the property for the handover of keys. As you would expect, crisp fresh linen, bath and hand towels are provided for guests. In addition, local information / literature, a USB charging point and a small selection of books, DVDs & board games have been provided for your perusal.
Due to local restrictions, the maximum length of a stay is 30 days.
