Overview
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Edinburgh, Scotland
The apartment is in a fabulous central location just up from the vibrant Grassmarket. There is no shortage of cafes bars and restaurants nearby. The bedroom and kitchen have a wonderful view of the castle and as the flat is situated to the back of the building it is very peaceful. During the festival and Hogmanay you may hear the military tattoo and fireworks as well as see them! The apartment is accessed on street level through a secure gate with just a few steps up onto the balcony landing from where you gain entry.
Perfect for 2 but can accommodate 4 with the double sofa bed in the lounge. There is also a fold out single bed which would best be suited for a child. The apartment would be an ideal base for a city break, family fun or a romantic getaway as well as the business traveller.
The lounge is bright and airy with a sofa bed...

About the neighbourhood
The Grassmarket is in the historic centre of Edinburgh and is home to numerous bistros, cafes, Scottish pubs and specialist shops selling antiques, books, cashmere, clothes and much more. Restaurants in the pedestrianised areas allow for al fresco eating and drinking within the proximity of the castle with festival and tourist venues all around. The area is steeped in history. Public hangings were held here and it was the haunting ground of the famous body snatchers Burke and Hare. During the summer the place comes alive with street performers, musicians and special events. A quick stroll will take you up to the Royal Mile and the Castle or along to Princes street through its lovely gardens.
