Condo/Apartment
An excellent self-catering apartment which is on the first floor, and can be accessed either from the communal stairwell which is in Advocate's Close - or it by its own private entrance from the High Street itself. If you enter from the High Street there are plenty of viewing areas where you can sit at the window and watch the busy comings and goings in arguably one of the most popular areas in Edinburgh, the Old Town and Royal Mile. As the name implies this is one of the oldest streets in Edinburgh, dating back to 1544. However there is nothing old and dated in the apartment, this is a well equipped and pleasant apartment with quality furniture and finished to a high standard.

If you enter from the High Street there are plenty of viewing areas where you can sit at the window and watch the busy comings and goings in arguably one of the most popular areas in Edinburgh, the Old Town and Royal Mile. As the name implies this is one of the oldest streets in Edinburgh, dating back to 1544. However there is nothing old and dated in the apartment, this is a well equipped and pleasant apartment with quality furniture and finished to a high standard. In the sitting room, there is seating for 4 people as well as a dining table and chairs. The lounge also has a digital TV with Freeview, CD and DVD player. Wi-fi is also available. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the mod cons you would expect to see in a self-catering apartment. There is an electric oven and hob, washer dryer as well as fridge freezer and microwave. The bathroom is a good size with bath and electric shower over There is a double bedroom, and an additional sofa bed in the lounge meaning the apartment can reasonably accommodate 2+2 people. Electric panel heaters are located throughout and can each be altered to your preference of temperature. Sorry, no stag and hen or party groups accepted. Our lovely guests have said 'the location was excellent and I would definitely recommend this apartment', 'Derek was really welcoming, and flexible about arrival and dept times to match our flight. The location was excellent and I would definitely recommend this apartment.' Parking: The owner has a free parking space available which is a 15-minute walk from the apartment. The best way to get around Edinburgh is by foot, although there are plenty of good and regular bus services operated by Lothian Regional Transport (LRT) and lots of taxis to help you get around. Accessibility: Please note this apartment is on the first floor and can be accessed by climbing 12 short steps. The building is Grade A listed. The Old Town of Edinburgh consists originally of the main street, the Royal Mile, and a number of small alleyways and courtyards that lead off it to the north and south. These were normally named after the trade that was carried out by one or more of the residents in that building - hence Advocate's Close. One end of the Royal Mile is the Castle itself and Royal Observatory and to the other end is Holyrood Palace all within an easy stroll from the apartment. There are numerous bars, cafes, restaurants and speciality shops all along the Royal Mile - so there's plenty to do just walking up and down this street. This is also the main area for The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August, as all acts will congregate here to showcase their talents. Off the Royal Mile, you have the Mound leading down into Princes Street and to the New Town of Edinburgh - this is no more than a 10-15 minute walk, or longer depending on how long you take to walk and look at all the grand buildings around. However, if you want to escape the shopping and activity - 10 minutes in the opposite direction will take you past the National Museum and on to The Meadows which is a great park and worth a visit to get a different view of the City.
