This chic apartment is closely connected to its host city in both its coveted Old Town location and its abundant artwork of Edinburgh.
This classy second-floor apartment, accessed via a communal stairwell, is situated beside The Scottish Storytelling Centre, the first purpose-built building for live storytelling in the world, on Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile. It therefore offers easy access to the Old Town’s renowned attractions, and is flanked by the landmarks of Edinburgh Castle on one side and Holyrood Palace, Our Dynamic Earth, and Arthur’s Seat on the other. It is in an excellent location both for attending performance venues and watching street performances during the world’s largest arts festival, the Fringe, each August.
First off the central lobby is a spacious double bedroom with a dresser, wardrobe, and a window over the street. The washing machine can be found in the utility closet opposite along with an ironing board and controls for the electric underfloor heating in the neighbouring shower room, which has an electric shower and towel rails fitted behind the door.
At the end of the lobby is the lounge, which in addition to the sofa bed has a window seat where you can relax and watch life go by along busy High Street. It also has an intricately carved and mirrored fireplace, a dining table, and a flat screen TV. A selection of books and DVDs is included to keep you entertained during your stay. The lighting is dimmable for added ambience, and the adjoining kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering on cosy nights in, with a microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, cutlery, crockery, and a hob and oven.
The apartment is decorated in warm neutral tones and features artwork of Edinburgh throughout, ascribing a very localized character. High corniced ceilings in the main rooms confer a feeling of space and the windows have double and secondary glazing for effective noise and heat insulation. The Storytelling Apartment is an ideal property for couples seeking a romantic break, but is also suitable for groups as the sofa bed can accommodate an extra guest.
