Getting around

Walk to key central attractions or catch a bus from the stop around corner from apartment

Other things to note

The apartment is in the City centre so being at the focus of activity it can on occasion be noisy in the Street. I advise not to sleep with the bedroom windows open. If you are a light sleeper I suggest ear-plugs or a nightcap.

This apartment is very spacious for three people and looks just like the photos. It is a 10 minute walk to the centre of the city, which was a very easy walk. Gordon was very helpful both before we checked-in and whilst we were there.

This flat with its clean stairway entrance, two large bedrooms, a large open plan living room / dining kitchen, and a central location, was a great base for a weekend in Edinburgh. The one downside was street noise in the bedrooms at night, which coming from leafy suburbs is not what we're used to. But would certainly recommend to others.
