This flat is in a wonderful location in Edinburgh. Opening the curtains each morning to a stunning view of Edinburgh castle was a delight. We visited the castle, Holyroodhouse, the royal yacht Britannia, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Scottish National Trusts' Georgian House and Gladstone's Land, Greyfriars Bobby statue and kirkyard, Scottish Parliament building, Canongate cemetery, Grassmarket and many more places of interest. The bus stop for a couple of the hop on/off buses is just over the road from the flat so very convenient if you have tickets. There are local supermarkets and shops and cinemas and theatres a five minute walk away. We ate one night at Il Castello which is almost next door to the flats and had a wonderful meal with super service. The flat itself is well equipped and very clean with a very comfortable bed in the quiet bedroom. Kitty, the owner, met us and helped carry my case up to the flat, She gave us information about the location and directions but we soon got our bearings and had a fantastic week in this beautiful city.
Castle view is a small apartment in a grade A listed bldg. The flat is on 3rd floor with a wonderful view of the back of The Castle. The location is superb right in the heart of the City within walking distance to shops, restaurants,bars and historic sites. It is small and comfortabe for 2 only but we'll maintained and furnished
We spent five nights at the Castle View Apt. We loved it. Wonderful view of the castle, short walk to the Royal Mile, many restaurant options nearby. Apartment is nicely furnished and kitchen is very well equipped with modern appliances. Clothes washer/dryer worked perfectly. Owner is delightful and met us upon arrival for very helpful orientation. Strong and dependable wifi. We will definitely return.
We had a great time at Castle View. The flat is clean, bright and well furnished, with a fantastic view up to the Castle Rock out of the window. It's very well located for the back entrance of the Princes Street Gardens and only 10-15 minutes walk from Waverley Station and (around the back of the castle in the other direction) from Princes Street itself. It's enough off the beaten track to be quiet in the evenings. Angus greeted us on arrival, and Kitty was very helpful (even when we inconvenienced her by managing to leave a coat behind at the end of our stay). We'd certainly stay here again.
This apartment was perfect for our stay in Edinburgh. With a view of the Edinburgh Castle from the living room window, it was within walking distance to all major sites. There is a great market on Saturdays that we visited for fresh coffee, cheese, sandwiches, and more--steps from the front door. The apartment itself had everything we needed to feel at home: great bathroom with tub/shower, soft towels, full kitchen, washer/dryer, helpful city guides and books, comfortable bed...amazing. Communication with the host was excellent and Kitty was able to recommend some great restaurants and shops for our visit. We will definitely stay here again.
