Right in the heart of the Royal Mile and a 7 minute walk from the Waverly Train station. Security gate at street level into building up 3 small flights, no lift , important to know if you needed a lift for elderly or assistance otherwise no problem and you enter a spotless well appointed flat. Everything works. We used the refrigerator and freezer and washing machine ...no dryer....hanging line in kitchen which worked fine. Beds and linen and pillows were fresh clean and super comfortable. I can't say enough about this flat. Marion was gracious and on time when we got there gave info if we needed but what I loved the most was the Location

Walk out take a left there's a crepe place for breakfast next to pastry shop across from a cafe and down the street is pubs shops churches architecture and at the end one mile away the Castle and the Scotch Whiskey Experience both highly recommended. If I ever do make it back hopefully one day to the Fringe Festival I will be sure to book well in advance here. Only used wifi for phone not laptops or surfing so had no issues. We had 3 adults here and were very comfortable and each own bed. I know it's on the Mile but the rooms are in the back over a courtyard so traffic and noise wasn't an issue at all. Then again it was after the Festival. I highly recommend and perfect for families and friends who all want to stay together in a fun central place where you are able to walk pretty much anywhere and can trust when you get back to the flat you can cook or drink or relax anytime you want and not be at the mercy of things being too late or not open Tailor made for that.

Perfect flat - perfect location - perfect host

  • 5 of 5

Marion was the perfect host. She was extremely communicative prior to our arrival, and after we occupied the flat. She gave us wonderful suggestions and was extremely timely with her responses. We did not know it at the time, but we were there when the Fringe Festival was occurring. We were far enough from the craziness, but close enough to walk right into the middle of all of the festivities. Do understand that there is no elevator, and the flat is on the third floor. The unit is extremely well appointed with all of the comforts of home. It had a washer dryer, a very nicely appointed kitchen, a television and Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi was a little bit spotty, but quite frankly, we did not spend enough time to warrant complaining about it. If we ever were to come back to Edinburgh, this is certainly the place we would stay. It gets my highest recommendation. If you have to store bags prior to or after staying at the flat, there is a City Stasher location about two blocks away from the unit. Marion told us about that as well, and it fit our needs exactly.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, clean and modern. Basics provided. Plenty of storage space and clean towels and bedding. Great location for the centre of Edinburgh and 5 minutes walk from the train station. Only 1 tiny issue, the shower doesn't drain away very quickly but hopefully this will get sorted.

Experience living on the historic Edinburgh Royal Mile, situated half way between Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyrood House and only minutes walk away from Waverley railway station and Princes Street.

It is the perfect location for a short break to enjoy all that Scotland’s capital city has to offer – the Edinburgh festival & fringe, historic buildings and museums along with the fantastic variety of cafes, restaurants and shops. Be amongst the hustle and bustle whilst enjoying the peace and privacy of your own space in the luxurious Canongate Apartment.

The beautiful 16th century building which has been fully refurbished inside provides a wonderful home from home in the heart of Edinburgh.
