This fabulous (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) mid Victorian, two bedroom, period apartment has amazing views and is located in the heart of the Old Town, just metres from Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. It was the subject of a three page design article in the national newspaper Scotland on Sunday weekend magazine “Homes and More” in September (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) and in October (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) appeared in another article on the Scotsman newspapers (Hidden by Airbnb) page entitled “Is this Edinburghs best located holiday let?”

As you enter the apartment you will find the hallway opening into the open plan lounge/dining and kitchen area. You can sink into the comfortable corner sofa and catch up on events on the 36” plasma screen TV. If you have brought your laptop you will be able to use the free and unlimited WiFi broadband to surf the web or maybe you would just prefer to relax with some music from the cd player. There is also a flame effect stove in the lounge for a bit of character to compliment the golden cornice work and ornamental iron rams head fireplace, while the original internal wooden shutters still stand guard over the old sash and case windows.

Communication was great and they were as accomodating as possible for check in. The location was prime, interior decor was perfect for the space and age of the building, and the views could not have been any better - you look out onto the same level as the castle. Getting luggage…
