Edinburgh Waverley train station, Edinburgh bus station, and Princes St are less than a ten minute walk away, as are many other popular tourist attractions including Dynamic Earth, Grassmarket and Holyrood. Based the second floor, this duplex apartment features minimalistic designer furniture throughout. On the lower level, the bright and airy living room has parquet flooring, and fantastic views over the Royal Mile. Just off of the lounge is the fully fitted kitchen, and a modern family bathroom. The upper level is entered via a characterful wooden feature staircase, and plays host to two generous bedrooms with fitted storage and a luxury shower wet room room with WC. This apartment is located in the heart of Edinburgh very close to Edinburgh Castle & St. Giles Cathedral. Only 10 minutes walk from Waverley Train Station, Princes Street, Edinburgh Bus Station and many major visitor attractions including Holyrood Palace, Scottish Parliament and Dynamic Earth. As this apartment is split across two levels, and contains a wooden stair case with handrail, it may not be suitable for guests with mobility issues.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 19:00 may incur a late arrival fee of 15 pounds for unsociable hours. Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed. The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already. A £200 refundable damage/security deposit is due 7 days before arrival, and refunded after departure. All properties are strictly non-smoking, and do not accept hen/stag/party groups.
