Our bright and bonnie flat combines the features of a historic building with all the conveniences of a modern apartment. The city's main attractions are moments away as are a host of traditional and contemporary places to eat and drink.

The space

Our third-floor apartment (there are steps!) is in a historic B-listed building just off the Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town Conservation Area, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The location is ideal for visitors to the city with the main railway station (and the nearby bus and tram links to the airport) less than five minutes walk away. Once here you have Edinburgh Castle, St Giles Cathedral, Holyrood Palace and the Parliament along with the city’s best galleries and museums right on your doorstep. On Jeffrey Street (and it’s continuation, St Mary’s Street) you’ll also find yourself right in amongst the many wee shops and fuel stops that make the Old Town special.

LIVING AREA: The accommodation is bright and spacious with an open plan kitchen-dining room as the main living area. The kitchen is fully equipped including fridge, dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven, microwave and clothes washer. The vintage country-kitchen table and chairs will support all your dining needs, while the sunny and comfortable window seat is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the Old Town skyline. Free WiFi broadband internet connection. Hi-fi with iPhone dock.

BEDROOM: A beautiful, light room with sumptuous king-sized bed (anti-allergy duvet and pillows), wooden French-style wardrobe, working stripped pine shutters and partial view to Calton Hill.

SITTING ROOM: A cosy room with comfortable sofa (folds out to double bed with pocket-sprung mattress) ornate cornice and traditional fireplace (not in use). Views to the Royal Mile. TV/DVD player.

BATHROOM: Traditional clothes pulley and wooden dado panelling are complemented by contemporary fixtures and suite including bath and over-bath shower (great hot water pressure from on-demand Combi boiler). Towels provided.

The apartment was an easy walk from the train station. Cluny was there to greet us and show us around the apartment which was just as lovely as the photos. Great kitchen with juice and milk for us to use as well as lovely coffee and tea. Beautifully decorated bedroom with lovely linen and a very comfortable bed. The comfy sofa bed was already made up for my daughter who was visiting with us. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the heating made us feel very cosy during our stay. Exploring Edinburgh by foot was easy with the apartments location. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family.

Lovely flat, in a great location. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Host was very helpful, and friendly. There were lots of nice touches, including things such as the decor and also fresh coffee, juice and milk in the kitchen for when we arrived. We would certainly stay again!

Cluny is a great host, communicative, welcoming and accommodating. The flat is clean and spacious, and in a great central location whether you're on business - as I was - or for pleasure. There are a lot of stairs - but it's good training for the hills of Edinburgh! Highly recommended.

We have just returned from a wonderful time staying in this apartment, and couldn't recommend it enough. It was was our first time using Air B&B, and we were delighted with the service. Everything we wanted to visit for our four day stay was right on our doorstep, and the royal mile was just around the corner. The place was furnished beautifully, the location was great and Cluny was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
