The Grassmarket - and the whole of the Old Town itself - is absolutely teaming with a wonderful choice of every kind of restaurant, pub and cafe - you will never be spoiled for choice. The shopping choice could not be more interesting either - in the Old Town itself or only about 10/12 minutes walk from the world famous Princes Street with its wonderful mix of shops, attractions, galleriesand museums. A wide choice of buses is within a couple of minutes walk from the apartment.

Attractive 2BR apartment situated in a more quaint and charming part of the historic Grassmarket area of the Edinburgh Old Town.


Welcome to our home! The apartment, which looks towards the Castle, consists of a lovely bright double aspect living room/dining area. Perhaps, even more famous in the modern day, is the fact that the front living room and bedroom windows look onto the rear windows of the Elephant House cafe/bar where J K Rowling tucked herself into a corner and wrote the beginnings of - yes, that’s right - Harry Potter! You will see from the photos attached here that the apartment also has 2 bedrooms; the main double bedroom faces Candlemaker Row itself and is furnished with a very comfortable double bed and ample furnishings. The second bedroom, although it contains a full sized very comfortable double bed, is a compact size (ask for more detail if that is important to you). There is a recently fitted modern kitchen, fully equipped with cooker, fridge/freezer, washing machine/dryer. The modern bathroom has an over-bath shower and the floors throughout the whole apartment are maple hardwood. Enjoy your stay! Please Note: The flat is right in the centre of town which is great, location-wise, but tons of noise is to be expected.


Guests will have access to the entire home!

Apartment perfectly located for visiting Edinburgh, as described. Very good bedding. The room on the street side is a little noisy but bearable; the apartment being in the center of town, it's normal

Clean, comfortable, well-equipped apartment with great views and an excellent location in the Old Town, walking distance to all sorts of attractions. Pricey, but worth it.
