1 of 24Amazing view including Edinburgh Castle from 21 Cordiner's Land front door balcony.
3 nights minimum
21 Cordiner's Land is a compact 2 bedroomed apartment, which is fully equipped and luxuriously appointed to the highest standards. Both our apartments (Apartment 39 Lothian House is our other Edinburgh property) have received annual Four Star Self-Catering awards for the past 16 years, so you can book this property with confidence for your Edinburgh holiday. The apartment has recently been tastefully modernised with an elegant decor, to suit discerning travellers requiring quality, homely comfort and relaxation. It is extremely well maintained and always presented in the highest condition of cleanliness. It is located on the third floor (sorry, no lift or elevator in this historic building) in the delightfully peaceful and quiet rear wing of the building. It overlooks the Cordiner's Land p...21 Cordiner's Land is a compact 2 bedroomed apartment, which is fully equipped and luxuriously appointed to the highest standards.

It overlooks the Cordiner's Land private terraced courtyard gardens and enjoys an outstanding outlook over the Old Town and Edinburgh Castle, which dominates this area. This is a great place to stay, particularly if a central location is important, and you want cleanliness, comfort & excellent value for money.
Cordiner's Land is a unique building within Edinburgh's historic architecture and reflects a part of the city's ancient history upon its walls. One of only two remaining historic stone emblems of Edinburgh's 'cordiners' (shoemakers) features above the front entrance. The central location makes sightseeing very easy, with many attractions close by. It is only a short walk to Princes Street, through its famous gardens. The Edinburgh International Conference Centre, major banks, theatres, cinemas, restaurants, public car parks, shopping and Edinburgh Castle are all within a 5-10 minute walk.
This lovely property is very flexible and is ideal for single travellers (also being 'female friendly'), couples seeking a romantic city centre hideaway, or for families needing a comfortable base for sightseeing.More

Thanks for providing this review, we appreciate your feedback. I’m sorry about the internet connection. We use BT, but even so it seems Storm Ali disrupted a lot of folks internet connections around that period. It is all back to normal now and working fine!
The best aspects are the location,the owner and the appealing decor. You are a short 10 minute walk to the Castle, the Royal Mile and the center of Edinburgh's tourist area. Good restaurants are even closer. The owner, Jenny, goes out of her way to...More

Thanks for this great review. It's good to know you appreciated our efforts to present 21 Cordiner's Land in a fabulous condition! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in future.
21 Cordiner's Land is located just below Edinburgh Castle, so it easy walking distance away from the Royal Mile. This historic mile is a road leading down the hill from the Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House. It is full of places to visit, tourist attractions, museums, restaurants, and experiences to create memories of a lifetime! The famous Grassmarket, Princes Street & its lovely gardens are also only a few minutes walk away. These gardens are superb for relaxing, or even enjoying a picnic on a summery evening, when the long twilights encourage visitors to make the most of the extended daylight hours. The Grassmarket is another vibrant area to visit, there are historic pubs where you can enjoy a relaxing meal or take in some entertainment. The Farmers Market is only 5 minutes walk a...
How to get there
This property is right in the city centre, so is serviced by most forms of transport. Many airlines fly into Edinburgh Airport, where it is then easy to take a taxi or bus to the city. Edinburgh's Waverley Train Station is a short taxi ride away - or walk up to and over the Royal Mile and via the Grassmarket into West Port. A wide range of buses service Edinburgh, both from far afield and locally. Hire cars are readily available, and there are several city centre public car parks within the immediate area. The choice is yours!
