This exceptional second floor apartment offers luxury living in one of Edinburgh's Grade 1 listed buildings. The apartment, overlooking Calton Hill and 2 minutes' walk to The Edinburgh Playhouse, is simply stunning. Two large comfortable double bedrooms are complemented by a large, brightly-lit sitting room with dining area and fireplace. The well-equipped kitchen offers guests everything they need to cook up a meal of their choice.

The space

Situated within one of Edinburgh's most regal and architecturally important buildings, The Playfair Apartment is unique in many ways: the curved walls and doors; the outlook overlooking Calton Hill. Both Calton Hill's Greek monuments and the apartment building were designed by the important Scottish Architect, William Playfair (hence the name of the apartment).

Luxury is evident throughout the apartment; whether it is the beautifully-appointed and brightly-lit sitting room with two large and comfortable sofas or the stunning sleeping spaces, one with curved walls and curved door!

Guest access

You will have the entire flat to yourselves for the duration of the stay. It is on the second floor and people with mobility issues may have problems accessing it. There are between 50 and 60 steps.

Interaction with guests

We are only ever a phone call away!

Other things to note

The apartment is on a quiet residential stair and, as such, all guests are reminded to be respectful of our neighbours. Any parties or smoking within the apartment will lead to an immediate removal and 100% of deposit being kept.

Barry kindly rescued us after a problem at our first Airbnb. We contacted him at 6pm to see if he could help and by 7.30 he had picked us up and settled us in to his apartment. We originally flew into Edinburgh airport then took the tram to York Place which is only a few minutes walk from the apartment. This is a large, spacious apartment on the corner of Windsor Street and the busy London Road with easy access to all the attractions in Edinburgh. There is a large lounge/diner which is bright and airy, a well equipped kitchen, 2 good sized double bedrooms, 1 bathroom with bath and tropical/rain shower and 1 toilet. Large enough for 2 couples if you don't mind sharing a bathroom and toilet. The towels and bedding are all fresh and beautifully laundered. I would recommend a stay here.

If you're looking for a stylish but cosy place to stay in Edinburgh, look no further! The appartement has everything you need, huge ceiling, beautiful furniture, we felt like in a little palace. The location is great, in the centered, yet you can join the airport with a single ride tram, so it's very convenient. And Barry is a very attentive host, always making sure we had everything, available and welcoming!

I am a husband and father of two great boys. I still teach occasionally but have my own small boutique letting agency in Edinburgh. As a family, we love travelling (and hosting) as well as meeting people.
