A stylish and contemporary 1 bedroom (spacious and with king-size bed) apartment located on the 1st floor of a traditional 19th century tenement with double sofa-bed in living room. The apartment will comfortably sleep 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 younger children.
It is a fabulous base to explore the vibrant center of Edinburgh being only a short walk from Edinburgh Castle, the bustling Grassmarket, Princes St Gardens and the Meadows whilst also in close proximity to the EICC, Murrayfield Stadium, and the Union Canal and where it ends at the Lochrin Basin.
Comfortable kitchen / living room;
Spacious king-sized double bedroom;
W/C and electric shower.
Stylishly decorated throughout, it has all the facilities you will need to enjoy your stay, including fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, fridge/freezer, leather double sofabed, 42" HD-TV with cable channels, comfy (sprung) king-sized bed (fine cotton bedding and towels provided) and high-speed fiber-optic wifi internet (speeds up to 50mbs).
A secure entryphone system gives access through a traditional Edinburgh tenement stair (this may not be the prettiest part of your stay, but console yourself with the thought that Edinburgh's best known actor would have done the same as a child!)
Situated at Fountainbridge, birthplace of Sir Sean Connery (No 176, now sadly demolished) and the original home of Scottish & Newcastle Brewery, close to Lothian Road and Tollcross, the flat is in a superb location for enjoying vibrant Edinburgh and its many Festivals - many of the Festivals' most popular venues are only between a 5-10 minute stroll away.
It is the perfect apartment to have a base to explore Edinburgh at any time of year as a short walk will take you to many of Edinburgh's popular tourist attractions - either the historic Grassmarket, Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and the historic Old Town (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Princes St and its gardens or The Meadows (Edinburghas best park).
Directly behind the apartment is the Union Canal and a few minutes further along the canal walkway takes you to Lochrin Canal Basin/ Edinburgh Quay.
For trips further afield (such as the Royal Yacht in Leith), there is a bus stop within meters of the flat and the area is very well served by buses, including one directly to/from the airport.
The area itself is famous for its variety of restaurants, quirky bars, independent cafes and art house cinemas. Many of my guests are thespians as the Kingas Theatre, Lyceum Theatre and Usher Hall are in the vicinity, or if it is business you are in Edinburgh for the apartment is located in the new financial district and the EICC is close by.
