Hi Jane. Glad you enjoyed the apartment and the location. Parking can indeed be busy as this is one of the last areas of free parking so close to the city centre so we would always suggest parking and then using the bus to explore...More

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is located within a traditional tenement in the Easter Road area of the city, a vibrant and distinct locality only 10-15 minutes walk from most of the city sights, which makes it a great base for a visit. There is an excellent range of local amenities and easy access across the city. Within 1-2 minutes of the apartment there is an award winning bakery and patisserie, a delicatessen, several cafes, specialist wine merchant, grocers, local supermarket, several food outlets, pubs and restaurants. The Royal Mile, Palace and Parliament are only 10 minutes walk, as are the stunning viewpoint of Calton Hill and Holyrood Park, both of which are well worth exploring. Also nearby is the Edinburgh Playhouse theatre and Omni Centre .
Getting around
From the apartment, you can walk to the foot of the Royal Mile and up into the Old Town, right through the historic centre and up to the Castle. You can also walk to the city centre in around 15 minutes. If you'd rather travel by bus, there is a stop to both the Royal Mile and the city centre from immediately outside the apartment.

There is also good access by bus to the east side of the city such as Leith Waterfront and Portobello beach.

The area also benefits from one of the very rare free parking areas in the city so if you travel by car we recommend you leave it parked in the vicinity of the apartment while you explore the city by foot or by bus.
