Alternatively, you can enjoy browsing the delightful independent design shops and galleries. After a hard day out exploring the city sights, the one bedroomed apartment offers a luxuriously comfortable King size bed in the bedroom area. There is also a double sofa-bed in the lounge area, sleeping an additional 2 guests. Ideal for couples or for families with children. The apartment is arranged to an open plan, so please note that the bedroom area is open to the lounge/dining area, separated by the wardrobe. All bedlinen and towels are provided for your stay in the apartment. Should you wish to dine in, the fully equipped kitchen has everything you could possibly want! (dishwasher and washer/dryer too!) If you want to wind down in the evenings there's a TV with freeview channels and a dvd player. Free Wi-Fi is also available. There's a bus route right on the Grassmarket and Waverley Railway Station is only 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Many more buses are a short walk away on nearby George IV Bridge & North Bridge. It's basically the perfect location from which to step out, experience the best of the city sights and discover your own Edinburgh.More
