I was delighted with the location of this apartment. Coming out of the apartment, turned left and came into Grassmarket. Turn right and onto CastleTerrace and over to Princes St or just go a few feet and there is a good grocery store on the corner. But the secret is to go straight ahead and enter a delightful coffee shop run by Gino.
I loved the apartment. It was perfectly equipped with a full kitchen including utensils and even a washer/dryer.
The windows made the place bright and cheery. The sofa folded out into a bed. I had a university friend stay for part of my visit and she found the bed was comfortable. Certainly the bed in the bedroom was comfortable.
The bathroom is good. The shower was fine.
I want to return in the near future. I hope I can stay at 521 Grassmarket.More
