1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
Edinburgh, Scotland
The first floor apartment sleeps 2 to 3 in a lovely sunny rear facing double bedroom overlooking trees and gardens, and a single sofa bed in the living room.

The bright galley kitchen seats up to 3 people at a pretty round table in the window overlooking Leith walk. The kitchen is equipped with fridge freezer, oven, hob, microwave, Belfast sink and attractive painted units. There is also a clothes airer on a pulley.

A door way from the kitchen leads through to the living area, with a pretty original tiled fire place, TV with access to multi channels and Video, CD player, comfortable leather sofas providing seating for 4 and a single sofa bed. The whole living space has been tastefully furnished by the owner and is filled with personal touches, lovely pictures, interesting ceramics and pieces of sculpture. A cupboard to the rear of the...

My husband and I, a retired couple, stayed at Gayfield Place Apartment for the five days of our first visit to Edinburgh from the USA. It is a charmingly decorated one-bedroom unit in a very old building, with high ceilings, broad plank wood floors, and tall windows. As the advertisement says, it is on the first floor of the building, which in Europe means that it is one level up. Even though it is on a busy street, the bedroom, on the back side of the unit, is very quiet. The kitchen is fully furnished, and we especially appreciated the clothes washer--we were able to wash all our clothes before we left Edinburgh to continue our travels. We noticed that the floors were not perfectly level, and that the plumbing occasionally had some aberrations, but all these "imperfections" were to be expected given the age of the building and, in our view, contributed to its old world charm.
