Edinburgh's Royal Mile (moments from the property door) is the heart of Scotland's historic capital. A short walk away is the Grassmarket, an area steeped in the city's colourful history.
The Royal Mile
The Royal Mile runs through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, connecting the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, perched high on a base of volcanic rock, with the splendorous Palace of Holyroodhouse, resting in the shadow of Arthur's Seat. The Mile is overlooked by impressive, towering tenements, between which cobbled closes and narrow stairways interlock to create a secret underground world.
Peppered with superb attractions such as The Real Mary King’s Close or the Scottish Storytelling Centre, historical sites including St Giles' Cathedral and some of the best eating and drinking spots in the city, the Royal Mile offers much to see and do. For a glimpse of recent history, be sure to visit the ultra-modern Scottish Parliament, a striking building boasting a cutting-edge design.
Once a medieval market place and site for public executions, the Grassmarket area is now a vibrant area buzzing with lively drinking spots and eclectic shops. Its detailed medieval architecture, stunning castle views and dynamic atmosphere make it one of the city’s most-loved areas, frequented by tourists, students and professionals alike.
There are bus routes moments from the apartment and taxis ranks... we would highly recommend NOT having a hire car- parking isn't the easiest!
Please note that Old Fishmarket Close is a very steep street, perhaps not best suited for elderly guests or guests with mobility issues. Also there is no parking on Old Fishmarket Close- it is best to explore the city on foot from this apartment!
Santiago I. (United Kingdom)Totally recommend it the host is thoughtful and cares about you having a great experience. The flat is super comfortable we were 5 and the place was more than enough. Fully equipped to a high standard.December 2017
Ørnulf K. (Norway)The apartment was beautiful and clean and delicatley. It was very comfortable. The location was perfect. We walked to the castle and everything else. Recommended!February 2018
Auréa Q.Perfectly located, spacious, well equiped apartment. I definitely recommend ! The only improvment to make concerns the big window in the living room with is badly isolated (some wind comes from it and make the room really cold).March 2018
Mark V.Fantastic location; stylishly kitted out apartment with nice interior design and everything you need. Well-equipped with those little extra touches (luxury towels and linens, treats!) that make all the difference for a great stay.March 2018
Sheila M. (United States)Fantastic flat in an an awesome location!! I highly recommend this accommodation for its comfort and style for our family of five, and for an unbeatable central location to restaurants, shopping and sightseeing all within walking distance.March 2018
Danielle O. (Canada)Really loved the flat! Super stylish, clean, comfortable and well appointed. Beds were great as were all the linens and towels. Lots of hot water! The kitchen is fully set up and the dining table, which seats six, is terrific to have if you want to save money making your own meals. Location is perfect and central, an easy walk to Waverly Station or a 5 minute taxi. Walk just up the close (alley) to the Royal Mile. The street is a very steep, cobblestoned surface. Could be a challenge for folks with sore knees or hips. The lane can get busy—there is a theatrical tour that stops below the flat and the offices for the Fringe are here. Consider earplugs or white noise if you’re sensitive. Can’t reccommend highly enough. I could live here!April 2018
Lynn H.Travelled as a family of five throughout the UK. This was one of our favorite spots! Amazing location and very trendy, well decorated, spacious apartment. Definitely stay here!!June 2018
Gill C.Great stay, location very good, nice and close to all attractions and 3 sisters pub/club locally which was good to watch the World Cup!. Beds very comfortable, nice sofa's and the whisky decanter was a lovely touch. Only negatives would be that the apt was very very hot, we opened windows but couldn't get any air - perhaps due to time of the year but a fan might be welcome, and the boiler made a very strange noise like a washing machine on the spin cycle!. Overall lovely place and would stay again.June 2018
Douglas P. (Canada)Old Fishmarket Close is a Great Location in Old Edinburgh- close to all the sights and activities on the Royal Mile. The Apartment was well equipped with all one needs. It was nice to have an apartment to have some quick meals. The management company was great to deal with and quick to respond to our requests. The only downside, is that the area can be very noisy in the late evening- so if you are sensitive to this, bring ear plugs!September 2018
Janet G. (United States)Beautifully appointed, clean apartment, exactly like the photos. Excellent location right off the Royal Mile. I would also highly recommend the restaurant, Michael Neave’s, right next door for a spectacular dinner or just a whisky nightcap on your way home. Because it’s near the college bar area it can be quite loud into the early morning hours when school is in session, like it was for our stay.October 2018
Kathryn W. (United States)This was our first trip to Edinburgh and this was the perfect place to stay. Conveniently located off the Royal mile and everything you want to see The apartment is lovely with updated kitchen and bath--all the comforts of home! Checking in and out was easy. It can be a little noisy at night, but if you're sensitive to noise, you'd probably be better off staying away from the Royal Mile.December 2018
Tom M.We stayed here for five nights. This was a great apartment overall! Best feature is its location in the heart of Old Town. And the place was very clean and updated with a good layout. We enjoyed watching pedestrians going up and down the "close." Only downside was there were loud voices from outside for a short while each evening between 1 to 3 AM - maybe people on their way home from the pubs? Probably hard to avoid this with a central location. Overall, I would recommend staying here. Thanks for the whisky!May 2019
Singinathan K.Beautifully set in the midst of all activities and amenities. Great place to stay to enjoy your holidays with your familyJune 2019
Arthur K. (United States)Would stay here again. It has everything you need. A minor issue is that shower needs repairing.June 2019
