“Right in the heart of the Royal Mile”

This location was incredible. And yes, 82 steps were a bit tiring, but mostly only on the first and last day when we were carrying our luggage...otherwise great exercise!

We were lucky to be there during Fringe Festival, so the Royal Mile was a fun experience with lots of activities from morning to late at night. The apartment is only a 5-10 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and about 10-15 minutes to Holyrood Palace, both definitely worth the visit while you are there...and minutes away from many of Edinburgh's highlights. We were also a 10 minute walk to Edinburgh Waverley train station so never even bothered to take a taxi to or from the apartment upon arrival or departure from Edinburgh.

The apartment itself was clean, with a large bathroom, but yes only 1 bathroom so it worked well for us as a family, but may be a bit harder if you are travelling with friends. The bathroom itself was a bit old but quite spacious and clean. Kitchen was well equipped and clean with all the basic appliances and required utensils.

ESC was great to deal with, providing lots of information well ahead of our arrival on highlights of Edinburgh, famous restaurants and info surrounding the actual rental. They were very professional and organized and I truly appreciated all their help surrounding our stay.

“Great location and nice apartment”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lovely place to stay, excellent location. Everything you could need nearby and in the apartment. We were able to get in very early as we had an early flight which was excellent. The passage and stairwell leading to the apartment are shabby and bare but once you get in it is lovely.

“Great apartment, 82 steps up”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a very well located apartment in the Royal Mile, just a short distance to the castle and the station. It is a large apartment that will very comfortably take 4 people in two largish bedrooms that have a very pleasant outlook.

A very spacious lounge and a large kitchen add to the charm. It is on the third floor and is 82 steps up a wide stairway which we found to be ok. However the elderly or those with knee problems could find this a little daunting.

All said, we found the apartment extremely well located and nice.
