Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
We’ve created an award-winning collection of luxury, serviced apartments that combine stylish design with all the benefits of home, where the great city location is the cherry on top. They are most definitely apartments done distinctively. Like home, but better. We’ve put some serious thought into designing apartments that not only encourage easy living, but look stunning from floor-to-ceiling. Whilst you kick off your shoes and settle in, we’ll quietly be beavering away in the background to ensure that all the important little details are taken care of – in a nutshell, it’s the best bits of hotel service with the added freedom of apartment living. Lateral City’s eclectic portfolio of apartments includes three distinct and rather magnificent properties. There’s Merchiston Residence, set in a leafy residential quarter, a short stroll from the city centre, 15th-century Old Town Chambers, just off Prince’s Street, and our newest jewel, The Edinburgh Grand, smack-bang in the beating heart of town. Unique and idiosyncratic in character they ooze the uncommon, but all share our passion for stylish design, contemporary features and ultra-modern technology. We don’t define your stay, we’re simply here to make it that bit more amazing.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

I heard there is no parking for cars? Where would we park a rental, and how far is the walk?
Dear Vianka, thank you for your message. Please note that at the moment none of the apartments in Old Town Chambers has A/C. All the windows in the 2 Bedroom Capital apartment can be opened and portable fans can be provided on request. In Old Town Chambers all 2 Bedroom apartments have 2 bathrooms: one en suite and the other one in the hallway leading to the living room. Please don't hesitate to contact us should you have any further question. Kindest Regards, Gaia Arcagni Guest Relations Manager

Dear Rachel, thank you for your message. Our gorgeous Townhouse had a very peculiar and unique floor plan: on the ground lever there is the master bedroom with a super king size bed that can be split in twins on request and a stand up alone bathtub, on the same floor there is also a bathroom with walk in shower. On the first floor there is an open plan bathroom with stand up alone bathtub ( privacy curtains separate this bathroom from the staircase ). On the top floor there is a very spacious living room, an open plan fully equipped kitchen and the second bedroom with a king size bad. Please note the size of the beds refers to the UK size chart. I hope you will find this information useful. Kindest Regards, Gaia Arcagni Guest Relations Manager
