Interaction with guests
The apartment is lived in by myself and my flatmate Chris. We both work relatively late and are usually busy on the weekends so are unlikely to cross paths/get in each others way.
This room is usually mine however I often stay with family outside of town so welcome people visiting the city to enjoy it whilst I'm not there.
Chris and I will be more than happy to point you in the right direction for great things to do in Edinburgh.
Stockbridge is an amazing part of Edinburgh. Great shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. We recommend Hamiltons or Bon Vivant for a casual drink + food, the last word for a great cocktail and Rollos or Scran and Scallie for a more foody meal. All are less than 5 minutes walk away from the apartment.
A short 10 minute walk from the apartment is the center of town. Up in town in and around George street there are some great bars and restaurants that we'd be happy to point you in the direction of. There's also a bunch of shops on George/Princes Street.
A further 5 minutes and you can reach the cowgate/grass market/university area. Loads going on there too.
The water of Leith walkway is at the end of the street and can take you up stream to Murrayfield and beyond or downstream to Leith. An enjoyable and easy walk or great spot to go running. For something a little more challenging we can direct you towards Arthur's Seat where there are fantastic views and a really great pub on the other side (the oldest one in Scotland in fact).
A number of bus stops a short walk from the apartment. Taxi number available. 15/20 minute walk from both train station. Bus to airport takes 20 minutes and the bus stop on Shandwick place is a 10/15 minute walk away from the apartment.
We also have a car so if you're really stuck can either pick you up/drop you off or even arrange for insurance on it if you would like.
Pets are allowed.
Just treat the place like you would your own.
We're both sociable and happy to help you enjoy your stay.
