Edinburgh's Castle View Apartment is enviably situated within the Grassmarket area of the City, right in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. Overlooking Edinburgh Castle, this self-catered apartment is ideally situated for those seeking a central base to explore the shops, attractions, events and nightlife. Considered the cultural capital of Scotland, there is so much to see and do no matter your tastes. The apartment is a mere 5-10 minute walk from The Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and the Princes Street. See an array of street performers, witness the one o'clock gun at the Castle, shop until you drop or visit one of Edinburgh's Contemporary Art Galleries. And that's just the start of it! This apartment has a lounge with double sofa-bed, TV, DVD player, Hi-fi and dining table and ...Edinburgh's Castle View Apartment is enviably situated within the Grassmarket area of the City, right in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town.

This apartment has a lounge with double sofa-bed, TV, DVD player, Hi-fi and dining table and chairs. There is a double bedroom with a mirrored wardrobe leading on to the bathroom with electric shower over the bathtub. The kitchen is well equipped with washing machine/dryer, fridge with small freezer box, microwave, counter top dishwasher, kettle, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine, pots, pans and crockery. The apartment overlooks the shared garden as well as Edinburgh Castle. The apartment is located at the back of a secure gated complex, offering peace and quiet in an otherwise bustling area. Available for holiday lets of 2 nights plus and short term rental all year round, this accommodation is ideal for 2 guests although there is space to accommodate up to 4 guests, if required. We would recommend guests come by public transport, but there's plenty of car parks close to the apartment; the closest being NCP Castle Terrace. For a cheaper alternative, Edinburgh has many Park & Ride car parks that allow overnight parking (the most expensive costing £0.50 per 24 hours).
