This holiday home is a bright two-bedroom apartment on the third floor (no lift) in a central location and with a view across to Nelson's Column on Calton Hill. It is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, beside the Royal Mile, a historic street forming the backbone of the city's medieval core, dominated by Edinburgh Castle at one end and the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the other.
The apartment is ideally located for many of Edinburgh's most popular attractions and amenities. Princes Street and George Street, the city's principal shopping thoroughfares, are just beyond the train station, and just beyond that is the New Town - the world's greatest showpiece of Georgian architecture.
The living room has a sofa and easy chair, and there's a Juliet balcony looking across the rooftops of the Old Town. There's a dining area and the modern kitchen is a separate room. It is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, as well as a washing machine, cooker and microwave.
The main bedroom has a standard-size double bed, and the second bedroom has two single beds. The bathroom has a wash-hand basin and bathtub with shower over.
The apartment has gas central heating and double glazing. The cost of gas, electricity and local taxes is included. For the comfort of future guests, the apartment is non-smoking and pets are not allowed.
There are excellent shopping and dining facilities within a few minutes’ walk, with a Tesco Express supermarket about five minutes walk away, and Meadowbank shopping park about 15-20 minutes by foot past Holyrood Palace (Sainsbury, Marks & Spencer, TK Maxx, Poundland etc.). The Royal Mile's oldest building – John Knox House – is a couple of minutes away, and the Museum of Edinburgh just a little further.
