This bright and sunny first floor apartment is situated in Edinburgh’s historic West Port, just off the lively Grassmarket nestling at the foot of the castle. A stone’s throw away from the cultural Old Town, it’s within easy walking distance of all the main city centre attractions.
Stroll up to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Greyfriar’s Bobby and the National Museum of Scotland, or take a longer walk to Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. Browse boutique shops or relax in the outdoor cafes and restaurants of the Grassmarket. Break up your day with a trip to one of the independent theatres or cinemas on Lothian Road, or do a spot of shopping in the chic New Town.
Its location is of particular historical significance, as West Port was closely linked with the notorious nineteenth century Edinburgh body snatchers, Burke and Hare, also known as the West Port Murderers. You can even enjoy a guided tour from West Port Tours on the Royal Mile, who bring to life the history of this famous duo.
This one double bedroom apartment can sleep up to three people with the use of a separate airbed. There is a large open plan living/dining/kitchen area with beautiful views across the Old Town and plenty of natural light. Although in the centre of all the action, it’s fully double glazed, keeping it quiet and meaning it is ideal for light sleepers.
The facilities include a recently refurbished separate shower room, kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine, all the cooking utensils, pots and pans to cook if you don’t want to eat out. There is also a cafetier for those who love their fresh coffee first thing in the morning, evening, lunch or any time of day. Complete with artwork on the walls, a shared garden which guests have access to and plenty of storage, it’s an ideal base for a city break to Scotland’s capital.
There is no parking with this apartment. The nearest long stay car park is on Riego Street which is 5 minutes walk.
