My husband and I have stayed at this location (different floor) on another occasion. The owners are great and very responsive. The location is perfect if you are wanting to be in the middle of activity. We will definitely be back!

We were really pleased with the flat. We had flat number one, fifteen James Court. It was very clean and homely. And if we come to Edinburgh again we wouldn’t hesitate to book it again.

About the neighbourhood
Situated in the historic Old Town of Edinburgh, this is the best place to stay in the city. The Old Town is a World Heritage site. Steeped in history, packed with museums, visitor attractions, specialty shops, restaurants and pubs. Edinburgh castle is 1 minute walk from your front door. This area of the city has a real buzz and is a joy to explore. This apartment is however in a peaceful location late at night with no nightclubs or noisy pubs. This a great place to stay anytime but a prime location during the Edinburgh Festival/Fringe or at New Year.
Getting around
Publc transport is just a few metres away from the apartment and taxis are readily available at the taxi rank some 50 metres away. Uber is also available in the city. Hop on hop off buses are within 1 minute walk.
