The apartment is on the elevated ground floor of a listed building that dates back to the 17th Century. Visitor attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street Gardens, The National Museum of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy Art Gallery, the historic Grassmarket, Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile are all within easy walking distance making this the ideal location for a city centre break....Recently refurbished 1 bedroom apartment in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town and the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The apartment is also the ideal location for the many special events that are organised in the city throughout the year such as the Edinburgh Festival, Edinburgh International Tattoo, the annual Fireworks display, the Edinburgh marathons and the famous New Year celebrations. The apartment is tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. There is 1 good sized bedroom (king size bed) with direct access to a shared private garden. The separate living room with a double sofa bed (suitable for 1 adult or 2 children) and a dining table also has a digital TV, DVD and free WiFi. The modern fitted kitchen has all the amenities you would expect at home with the added benefit of a washing machine and tumble dryer being located in a separate cupboard. The apartment is conveniently located for Waverley Train Station or the Edinburgh Bus Station. The airport is about 13 km away and is on a direct bus route from the apartment, or alternatively the flat is easily accessible by taxi or tram.More

About the neighbourhood
Edinburgh is a beautiful city. It’s easy to wander around the streets soaking up the history and stunning architecture. The flat is a stone’s throw from the statue of Greyfriar’s Bobby, the National Museum of Scotland and the Elephant Cafe - the alleged ‘birthplace’ of Harry Potter, where JK Rowling wrote her novels.
Getting around
All the city centre attractions are within walking distance from the flat. Edinburgh has a great transport network with a bus service which takes you to all parts of the city.
