This charming two-bedroom apartment sits a stone’s throw from the Castle, nestled between Edinburgh’s Old & New Town, right at the heart of the bustling city centre on Rose Street – famous for its wealth of places to eat, drink and shop.

The space

Ideal for couples, or a trio of travellers, our compact and cosy apartment is freshly redecorated and comprises a master double bedroom and a separate single bedroom. Being centrally located on the pedestrianised Rose Street, in the centre of Edinburgh’s main shopping district, you’ll be right at the heart of the action – with the ideal base from which to explore the city’s hustle and bustle.

The master bedroom, with king size bed, faces north to Rose Street, while the south-facing single room backs onto a quiet lane behind the property, getting beautiful light for most of the day. Rose Street itself is a hive of activity, particularly on weekends and at key times of year, so be prepared to be at the centre of it all – albeit on the third floor, high above the fun and frivolity that goes on below.

The cosy kitchen diner and living room space also looks out onto the quiet back lane and is kitted out with everything you’ll need for that well-deserved break from seeing the sights. You’ll certainly be able to whip up a meal, if you haven’t been tempted into one of the huge number of eateries, of every kind imaginable, that lie within easy walking distance of the front door.

The central bathroom is a generous size, providing shower, wash hand basin and toilet.

With wooden floors throughout, wooden sash windows, and a few other original features, the apartment retains plenty of that Edinburgh tenement character. Unfortunately, that tenement vibe does extend to the stairwell access, which is a little dark and winding. Don’t worry though, it provides ideal practice for something else you’ll discover that Edinburgh is full of… lots and lots of hills!

If you’re looking for somewhere central, to be your bolthole in the city for the duration of your stay, then you’ve come to the right place.

Interaction with guests

The apartment is yours exclusively for the duration of your stay. I don’t stay in Edinburgh but I’ll be available on the phone to answer your questions and queries and I have a supportive team of friends and relatives around the city, who are ready to help whenever I call. So, you’ll be well looked after, in case there are any issues during your stay.

Very beautiful apartment located in the heart of the New Town, and really well connected to the center of the city and the main tourist places. The apartment was clean and comfortable.

Rachel is an awesome host!!! She is kind, and will go the extra mile to ensure your stay is pleasurable. I enjoyed my stay at her place in Edinburgh. The flat was very clean, clean linens, and super homey. The flat is in a great location - walking distance to a lot of sights and fun. As most of the buildings in Edinburgh, this apartment is an older building (old wood floors, stairs, etc.), which should be kept in mind depending on what you are looking for, otherwise it is lovely. Thanks for everything Rache!

Great location. Climbing the stairs is not for sissys. This is mentioned in advert but there are a lot of them. Apartment a little basic no TV

Response from Rachel:
I really appreciate the feedback and I'm sorry that you felt your stay wasn't up to scratch this time. There are a few stairs, as it says in the description - guilty as charged! And while I haven't found that many people have missed the TV so far, we're saving up for a few more luxuries for the flat as we speak. For now, we'll have to rely on the good old art of conversation and Edinburgh's lovely sights and nightlife to see us through! Thanks again. Rachel.
