Set back from a quiet street sporting restaurants, boutique shops, pubs and cafes, our William Street Lane apartment provides guests with all the amenities they’ll need within five minutes on foot. Shandwick Place is around the next corner and features a clutch of supermarkets and pharmacists, as well as tram and bus links to the airport and through the city. The famous high street experience of Princes Street is just beyond, under view of Edinburgh Castle.
The apartment is a compact and stylish space beginning with a short flight of stairs up to its kitchen, which has sliding wooden doors on either side to its ensuite bedroom and sitting room. The kitchen has a table seating four opposite its hob and combination microwave/fan oven. Its other fitted appliances are a dishwasher and fridge with freezer drawer. There’s also a coffee maker and cafetiere in the cupboards.
The apartment’s bed (UK small double) is flanked by fitted single wardrobes. An iron, ironing board and hairdryer are also kept here. A further sliding door divides the bedroom from the ensuite shower room with electric shower.
The sitting room has a sofa, two wingback armchairs, a coffee table and stove. On the rightmost wall is a large print of Edinburgh reproduced from the 1868 Illustrated London News. Guests can repose in comfort and warmth to peruse one of the local interest titles or listen to the Sony digital radio on the windowsill. The room has a sloping ceiling with skylights, which run throughout the property to brighten and open out the space.
William Street Lane is nestled in an excellent central location with a wealth of amenities within easy reach. It therefore serves as ideal accommodation for couples wishing to explore the city, as well as lone travellers and professionals seeking a retreat from the hubbub of the busier surrounding thoroughfares.
