Información sobre este anuncio
My second floor one bed apartment is right in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town - ideally placed for the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum of Scotland, Greyfriars Churchyard and The Witchery. Lovecrumbs and the Hanging Bat are close by as is the "Harry Potter" café, the Elephant House. You’ll love it here - great neighbourhood and ambiance. There is a convenience store across the street and Starbucks and Sainsburys just down the road. We have a sofa bed and free wifi.
The building is listed and is of architectural significance and of historical importance, dating from 1739 and originally the Edinburgh Charity Workhouse (the 'Poor House').
The living room has a dining area and traditional fire place with electric fire. The two-seater sofa converts in to a double sofa bed.
The modern kitchen area is well equipped with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, as well as a washing machine, fridge-freezer, cooker and microwave. The double bedroom has a wardrobe and chest of drawers. The bathroom is tiled (recently re-tiled) and has a wash-hand basin, toilet and bathtub with shower over.

The apartment is in the heart of the Old Town and close to all the major attractions. As well as the Royal Mile and the Castle, the attractive Grassmarket is very close by, with its many shops and restaurants (head down Candlemaker Row by Greyfriars Churchyard). Just off the Grassmarket, and leading back to the Royal Mile, is Victoria Street (or the 'West Bow'). Check out Maison Bleu for great food!
Just around the corner from the apartment is Greyfriars Church (built in 1620) and churchyard. At the entrance you will find a memorial to Greyfriars Bobby, the faithful Skye terrier, who, so devoted was he to his master, that he sat on his master's grave for 14 years until he died in 1872.
Across the road from the Greyfriars Bobby memorial is the National Museum of Scotland (Chambers Street), recently refubished and holding international collections of decorative arts, science, industry, archeaology and the natural world. Next door you can enjoy fine dining at the splendid Tower Restaurant on the top floor of the Museum of Scotland, which has terraces with amazing views over the city.
The apartment is close to the University of Edinburgh main campus (established in 1582), with its many landmark buildings. Next to the University lie the Meadows, a large area of open parkland in the heart of the city. Near the top of the Meadows path (close to the apartment) you will find a small Sainsbury's supermarket. Starbucks is just around the corner from the apartment and there is another one next door to Sainsbury's.
For some serious nightlife, the Cowgate (centre of the city’s nightlife) is close by.
There is a bus stop very nearby, just off Forrest Hill, and there are buses which will take you to the New Town amongst other destinations. You will not need public transport around the Old Town. Taxis are also plentiful. Parking can be challenging and it is wise to factor in the need to pay for parking if you are parking any day apart from Sunday or overnight (6.30pm - 8.30am).
