Right on Lawnmarket, superb location. If they offered a grocery service would be even better. Yes we were 2 flights up, 42 steps, & no lift, but it's a heritage building - superb. Would def recommend and stay again.
Found this apartment to be a perfect place to stay for our recent visit to the city for the tattoo and fringe.
Given the price of hotels and restaurants in the city centre it made sound financial sense too, it is very compact but contains everything necessary to make a comfortable and enjoyable stay and even provided a haven to go back to should you require a respite from the intensity of Edinburgh during Festival!
We enjoyed it so much I made a booking for next year while we were still there.
Excellent Self-Catering unit overlooking the Royal Mile, and from the bedroom window, the Lady Stairs Mansion. Recommend you contact the owner just before you arrive to avoid any confusion at the start.
A fantastic little place, reached by a steep spiral staircase, really cosy. Lovely to sit overlooking the Royal Mile.
I highly recommend staying at Ladystairs, this is a fabulous location and apartment. From the moment I booked, it was a very organised, helpful and easy arrangement even down to a very handy list of nearby restaurants being emailed to me.
The apartment was very clean and recently remodelled (shower was great!) and we found it very enjoyable to sit in the window seat and watch the happenings on the Royal Mile.
The stairs were a bit daunting after a day walking the hills of Edinburgh but that was more to do with my fitness level, or lack thereof!
Also, if catching the tram from airport, I would suggest dragging your suitcases down to North Bridge past The Balmoral and coming up to the Royal Mile that way to the apartment to miss the steps or steeper hill!
I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
