Visited by Tripadvisor
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Edinburgh, Scotland
This beautiful apartment not only offers comfort but is in the perfect location for your stay in Edinburgh. It is 10 - 15 min walk from the city centre and another 10 mins will take you to the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. There is also excellent public transport for those not so keen on walking.

The New Town also has many, many superb bars and restaurants, galleries, museums and specialist shops. Just walking around looking at the beautiful architecture is a joy and no surprise that the Edinburgh New Town is a World Heritage Site.

We stayed 3 nights with our 13-year old granddaughter and the flat worked very well for us. It is very clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. Di thoughtfully provides all the kitchen and bathroom essentials. Cumberland St is very quiet and only a 15-minute walk from Princes...More

Additional amenities & feature info
The spacious lounge has a large comfortable leather sofa and 2 leather chairs with large screened tv and dvd player. Throughout the flat are beautiful original fireplaces and corniced ceilings all lit up by the light streaming through the large Georgian windows. The kitchen/dining is extremely well appointed with a utility room which, although there is no clothes dryer, has a large pulley where clothes will dry overnight.
There is a large double bedroom and a twin bedded room which has an en suite shower room. There is a family bathroom with bath/shower and toilet and there is also a small separate toilet very typical of these old apartments. It is perfect for a family, 2 couples, etc.

About the neighbourhood
As well as the above, a 15 - 20 min walk will take you to the Playhouse Theatre which always has a live show on offer and next to that is the Omni Centre which shows the latest films. The world famous Botanic Gardens are nearby and well worth a visit.

There is many, many Festivals in Edinburgh - the largest by far being the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe which takes place in August - see online for details.
Getting around
Walking is the best way to see Edinburgh but there is a bus stop just around the corner from the flat (approx. 100 metres away) where you can catch the 23 or the 27 bus, either of which will take you to the Old Town in around 10-15mins. You can walk to the Old Town in 25 mins and you can walk to George Street/Princes Street in 10-15mins where there is a huge choice of shops, restaurants, bars etc.
Stockbridge, which also has lots of shops, bars and restaurants (and an excellent food market every Sunday) is 5 min walk from the flat.
