Good location with both the Royal mile and Princes Street within 15 min walking distance. Only hear trains pass by but noise is minimal. Flat is spacious and comfortable and a nice basket of tea, coffee, bread and goodies awaited us.

It is a great apartment - clean and well-maintained. The location is perfect - right next to Holyrood Palace and Arthur's seat, but away from crowds and traffic. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was well stocked with most things we needed during the stay. Eleanor provided us with a detailed brochure that was quite helpful. And even kindly...

About the neighbourhood
1) The apartment is very centrally located with all of Edinburgh's tourist attractions within easy reach (See our map “photo”). Ideally situated for the Royal Mile (5min walk), Palace of Holyrood House (5min walk), Scottish Parliament and Dynamic Earth (5min walk) as well as having the beautiful Holyrood Park right on the doorstep. Nearby, there are also numerous festival and 'Fringe' venues (it's a 15min walk through the park to the famous “Pleasance”), the Grassmarket / Cowgate (20min walk) and Edinburgh Castle (25min walk). In addition, the flat is a 30 second walk from London Road's buses (a major bus nexus, providing access to Princes Street in 5mins, the Old Town, New Town, the Royal Yacht, Edinburgh Zoo etc) and local shops/pubs.
2) Edinburgh: The Old Town's...

How to get there
Airport: Edinburgh International: 12.0 km
Railway: Waverley Train Station: 3.0 km
Ferry: Rosyth: 20.0 km
Transport Links are excellent as the apartment is close to several main bus routes which access most areas of the city and beyond.

1) The Airlink 100 service (£4.50) runs from the airport to the City Centre (Waverley Bridge), from where it takes c. 20mins to walk to the apt. The Skylink 300 service (£4.50) takes considerably longer as it takes a roundabout route and stops many more times, although if you alight from this bus at the Holyrood/Scottish Parliament stop you will have just a 5 min walk to our apartment although we recommend using a phone GPS tracker.
2) Taxis: Are widely available at the airport and cost around £25 (depending on traffic) to get to the flat. Alternatively try calling City Cabs or Central Taxis.
3) Trains: Waverley Train Station is a 15-20min walk away. A taxi...
