It is equipped with everything you need for a short or long stay. We provide all towels and bedding as well as tea, coffee, milk and biscuits and essential toiletries and a hairdryer. Although there are an amazing choice of restaurants, cafés and bars on your doorstep our well equipped kitchen means you can also cook for yourself. It is well set up for both long and short stays. Our stag themed bedroom has a double bed with memory foam topper for added comfort and overlooks the Grassmarket. There is ample storage in the wardrobe for your luggage. For more then 2 guests there is a large double sofa bed in the living area, which is part of the light and airy open plan living/dining/kitchen area. The open plan area is light and airy with a contemporary feel with dramatic close-up views of the castle. It includes a fully equipped kitchen - oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine; a good sized table to sit four people; a comfortable sofa, a funky bean-bag, and a large flat-screen TV. The family bathroom includes bath with shower over and plenty of storage. Rain, hail or shine our newly installed heating system means it’s an apartment for all seasons. Whether you are coming to stay for work reasons, a special occasion or simply to get away from it all we want you to have a great time and feel at home. So please let us know if you have any special requirements. We welcome families and can provide a travel cot bed for a baby and do not charge for children under 5. Please note though that it is an old flat with old floorboards on the 2nd floor so not suitable for babies that are crawling. We'd hate for you to be disappointed so please let us know how old any young children are. Also please be aware that like most of the old buildings in Edinburgh there is no lift. There are 48 steps to the 2nd floor (American 3rd floor) so take care with heavy suitcases. Although the apartment is secondary glazing the Grassmarket is a very lively area particularly at weekends and during the festival and therefore not very suitable for those looking for a quiet break! Please note however that we do not accept Hen or Stag parties. We look forward to welcoming you to the apartment!More

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is right on the Grassmarket in Edinburgh - with plenty to see and do right on your doorstep. It's hard not to be drawn to all that the old town can offer unless of course you are looking for a quiet holiday to get away from it all!. With only a few minutes walk to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Museum of Scotland and Greyfriars Kirkyard you've got plenty of time to linger in the many pubs, restaurants and cafes on the way. There is so much to see and do in Edinburgh whether for a few days or a few weeks. Visit the many shops, theatres, art galleries and museums. Or simply wander down the many closes and small streets of the old town and discover Edinburgh's gruesome past! A visit to the New Town and the main shopping areas.
Getting around
In Edinburgh city centre it is best to use public transport. The apartment is so central, located in the heart of the Old Town that all city centre attractions and transport links are within easy walking distance. The hop-on, hop-off bus stops just across the road. It's best to avoid having to park a car in the city centre if you can as it can get very expensive. There is parking around but why not use one of the many Park and Ride's outside the city centre where a good bus service will bring you back to the heart of the city.
