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.
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.
