5 Luxury Apartment in Central Edinburgh - The Robert Louis Stevenson Suite

Historic Edinburgh apartments in New Town, walk to Princes Street
Location, location, location! The Robert Louis Stevenson Suite is a luxury apartment with unprecedented views of Edinburgh Castle. Located just 2 minutes from the iconic Princes St on the corner of George St (lots of shopping, bars and restaurants) and North Castle St, the apartment is in the heart of the New Town, making it an ideal base for visiting all the main tourist sites of Edinburgh.

The apartment block was one of the first flats to be built in the New Town by James Craig in 1790 and sits directly adjacent to the Edinburgh town house of Sir Walter Scott!

The flat opens into a square reception hall providing access to all rooms. To the front of the flat and with a southerly aspect from its twin windows is a magnificent drawing room featuring a gas fire with iron grate and pretty timber mantle, dado paneling and delicate plaster work. A glazed door provides secondary access from the drawing room into a striking breakfasting kitchen fitted with an attractive range of painted timber units topped with thick granite surfaces and incorporating a full range of integrated appliances, including a recessed range cooker set, oven/grill, and microwave as well as a washing machine and full height fridge/freezer.
The bedrooms comprise a generously proportioned master bedroom with a king size bed and dual aspect views towards Edinburgh Castle. This bedroom features secondary double glazing and also benefits from a luxurious en-suite shower room.
The second bedroom is set up as twin beds and is served by an equally well fitted family bathroom.
Larger parties can enquire about our apartment in the same building - The Walter Scott Suite ( same building below this one on the first floor), has the same high spec and stunning views of Edinburgh Castle. Combined, both properties can accommodate up to 8 / 10 people comfortably. It also has a very unique huge terrace with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and can be made available by special request.
Guest accommodations at this apartment offer fireplaces and DVD players. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas.

Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations and hair dryers. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and irons/ironing boards.

5/5 Excellent

Great location, price and service
Have stayed here multiple times and the property is perfect. Everything is as expected. 5 Stars!

4/5 Good

A lovely first floor apartment
A well furnished property, which made a comfortable environment for our stay in Edinburgh. A special thank you to Grant who went above and beyond to make my wife’s 50th birthday trip a one that made her feel special.

5/5 Excellent

Great Location!
We really enjoyed our stay. The Location couldn't have been better. The only issue was the stairs to the flat. For older folks with luggage it was a little to much. So pack light! Other than that it was great.

5/5 Excellent

wonderful stay in excellent location
we were in the apartment for 10 nights, we both wish it had been longer. the apartment was exactly as pictured. the area is perfect, everything's close by: banks, restaurants, M&S, Old Town. (one must have a meal or two at The Dome! It is beautiful). the apartment has a well equipped kitchen, nice linens, good central heat (it was cold in late April/May.) washer/dryer, plenty of storage. the stairway hall could do with a facelift. we were awakened by happy revelers on the street two different times in the wee hours. Good reading light would be an asset by the bed. However, I would book this apartment again without hesitation.

5/5 Excellent

Spacious and convenient, with a great fireplace!
The property is well located in the New Town near sights and restaurants (and 2 blocks from a small grocery store). The living room is quite large (2 couches + 2 armchairs + gas fire which was great on cold evenings) and nicely decorated to reflect the building's period. Plenty of throws, too. There's a roomy master bedroom and a reasonable size twin room. The bathrooms are also good sized and the towels were good quality. The kitchen seemed well equipped, though we really only used it for breakfast. There was some street noise on the weekend from drunken people wandering around late at night (probably true in any central area), but the apartment and building were quiet. The owner warned us that the building key was fiddly, and that was true -- we always eventually got in, but not without a few anxious moments! Still, I would happily return here.
