    About this property

    Famous St. Mary's Street Old Town Apartment

    Edinburgh apartments in Old Town, walk to Royal Mile
    A cool, old town 1-bedroom apartment in the very heart of Old Town just around the corner of The Royal Mile with a lovely view and a back garden area. Will ideally suit couples or solo travellers looking to take in all that Edinburgh has to offer! Everything is within walking distance: Royal Mile: 30 second walk Waverley Train Station: 5 min walk Princes Street: 6 mins walk George Street: 10 mins walk Holyrood Palace & Scottish Parliament Building: 8 mins walk Edinburgh Castle: 10 mins walk 24/7 guest support available. The Space: This 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment is perfect for couples, friends or solo travellers who wish to experience the charm of the Old Town and be in the centre of the city. Literally just a minute away from The Royal Mile it does not get any better location wise. Besides having all the main attractions within 5-10 minutes from the flat, there are also plenty of shops around if you'd rather stay home and cook your own dinner in the fully equipped kitchen or just have a cup of coffee in the back garden area. Guest Access: Guests will have full access to the entire apartment including free wifi. Interaction with Guests: I am always available on Airbnb and my Edinburgh based co-hosts are here to help 0-24. The Neighborhood: Edinburgh's Old Town is one of the world's most historic sites. My flat offers you the opportunity to live in a modern, well equipped apartment right beside many of these historical sites. The flat is located just around the corner from The Royal Mile, at the centre of the Festival action during the summer. The Edinburgh Castle is just a short stroll away, as well as the National Museum of Scotland or Princes Street where you will find all the shops. There are plenty of great pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from just outside my doorstep - you won't have to walk anywhere far! Getting Around: My apartment is right in the heart of Edinburgh Old Town and close to all travel links and historical sights. Waverley train station is just 5 minutes away, and that's where the Airport express bus (Airlink) stops too. If you are taking the tram from the airport, the nearest tram stop is on Princes Street, about 12 minute walk away. The buses are a great way to get around as well and the nearest stop is just outside my apartment. The city is also very well-served with a good taxi service - a rule of thumb being that £5-£10 will get you almost everywhere you want to get to from the flat. Uber is also a convenient option if you have the application for it. Other Things to Note: We use a professional cleaning company and hotel quality towels and linen will be supplied. House Rules: • Not suitable for infants (under 2 years) • No smoking • No pets • No parties or events • Check-in is anytime after 3:00 PM
    Guest accommodations at this apartment offer hair dryers and irons/ironing boards.

      Good location but lots of steps to rental

      The communication with the manager and check in process was good. The location is really good, with so many places within easy walking distance. The unit was clean and stocked. Please note that there are over 60 steps to reach the front door of the unit, which we didn't realize in advance. The shower is VERY slow to drain and there's a note mentioning it when you arrive. Overall a good unit if you don't mind ALL those steps.

      5/5 Excellent

        Centrally located gem

        Perfect flat for 2 people to stay and enjoy everything Edinburgh has to offer! Amazing location - short walks to the castle and Holyrood house, and right in the middle of all the Fringe venues. Lovely hosts as well.
