Great Location

  • 4 of 5

A large, clean flat ideal for two couples or a family. Within walking distance to tourist sites, museums, and a number of pubs and restaurants. Location is a bit noisy on the Royal Mile but that’s to be expected if you want to be in the middle of everything. Individuals with mobility issues or difficulty handling heavy suitcases should be aware that this building has no lift. To reach the apartment, you must climb five flights of stairs with another inside the front door. Other than that, a good stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Bruce. The building is listed and over 250 years old so a lift is not possible. Shahid

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Located on the Royal Mile, this well-appointed apartment has all the comforts that you need. Centrally located, it is within walking distance to attractions, as well as very close to the bus stop. Nicely updated with modern fixtures, it still retains its historic charm. Shahid Raza was extremely kind, able to assist us with any questions that we had.

I would definitely stay there again, as it was an absolute delight. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Best regard,

Joan
