Welcome to Castle Heights and its stunning views, perfectly placed in the historic Grassmarket. Located on the top (fourth) floor of an impressive 18th century listed building in the heart of Edinburgh's vibrant Old Town, you'll not find a better location! Brand newly refurbished, you will have the whole apartment to yourselves and we have thought through every detail to give you a relaxing, comfortable and first class stay. The unrivalled views of Edinburgh Castle from the living/kitchen space and the bedroom are simply exceptional and in themselves make for an unforgettable trip.

Located on the top (fourth) floor of an impressive 18th century listed building in the heart of Edinburgh's vibrant Old Town, you'll not find a better location! Brand newly refurbished, you will have the whole apartment to yourselves and we have thought through every detail to give you a relaxing, comfortable and first class stay. The unrivalled views of Edinburgh Castle from the living/kitchen space and the bedroom are simply exceptional and in themselves make for an unforgettable trip. From the apartment, during the Edinburgh Festival you can hear the world famous Tattoo and see the spectacular fireworks at Hogmanay over the Castle. Edinburgh is a magical city to explore and after a long day walking and discovering hidden gems it's just perfect to come back to this unique, cosy and comfortable space that feels like home, with every mod con you could need. From the welcome pack, with its flavour of Scotland, to the comfy beat-up leather sofa, from the rain-shower in the wet-room to the luxury, fluffy towels, from the fully equipped brand new kitchen to the sumptuous bed and comfortable pillows, we've tried to think out every detail for your stay. We know on a short stay you don't want to have to stock up on basics so you'll find sugar, salt, olive oil and balsamic vinegar as well as a selection of teas and coffees including a Nespresso coffee machine and pods for when you want to cosy up and dine in with the stunning view of the Castle in front of you. Right on your doorstep, however, is a wonderful array of restaurants, cafes, bars, a creperie, a cool juice bar and a vintage ice cream bar so you may not dine in that often! The apartment has one double bedroom with a lovely, comfortable double bed but also has a comfortable sofa bed in the living room to accommodate another guest. The bedroom has views of Edinburgh Castle, velux window with remote-controlled black-out blind and a lovely, fresh wardrobe with plenty of hangers. You'll find a 40' flat screen Sony Smart TV and Blu'ray DVD player with a selection of DVDs for a movie night in, free WiFi, Nespresso coffee machine, with plenty of coffee pods, digital radio, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, iron and ironing board and hairdryer and the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. Please note that this is a top floor apartment (4th floor) which means that it is unfortunately not suitable to anyone that might have issues with that. It's a historic and listed building so the stairs are the only option we're afraid-no elevators. But the unobstructed view of Edinburgh Castle makes it well worth the climb! You have the convenience of 24 hour access as we will provide you with the code to a safety box containing the keys to the apartment. We are always happy to help and always ready to respond swiftly. We offer you plenty of fabulous recommendations of wonderful places in Edinburgh and beyond to visit, eat, drink and experience. We hope you'll love Edinburgh as much as we do! More
