Frederick Street Apartment

Edinburgh New Town
5 bedrooms
4 bathrooms
11 guests


A newly listed lovely 2nd floor spacious apartment with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (2 ensuites) suitable to be let by families or groups of friends. The key attraction to the apartment is its large communal living room kitchen where everyone can feel at home.

The apartment is in the heart of the city, moments away from the main attractions such as the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and the National Gallery. Frederick Street itself offers some lovely restaurants and bars, and in links on to Thistle Street, a small hidden street full of quirky restaurants, bars and shops. Fredrick Street also links on to the main shopping streets of Edinburgh, George Street and Princess Street, making it the perfect base for exploring tourist attractions but also for a shopping weekend or a weekend enjoying the many many amazing restaurants Edinburgh offers.

The property is also an easy stroll from local buses and the tram which goes to the airport, as well as being a 5-10 minute walk of Waverley Train Station. There are local supermarkets within walking distance too- everything really is on your doorstep for a wonderful Edinburgh weekend.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you wish to find out more. We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh.


We are in the heart of the city with all the main tourist attractions and transport links within easy walking distance. There are two small supermarkets within 200m- 500metres and a number of very good restaurants, coffee shops and bars in the vicinity of the apartment, and we provide a list of reccomendations within the apartment.

The Edinburgh airport is to the west of the City Centre. There are various options to get from the airport to the flat:
-Bus –Airlink(100) -£4.50 (adult single)/£2 (under 15 single); £7.50 (adult return)/£3.00 (under 15 return) and this bus drops you at Waverley Station. This bus can take 25 to 45 minutes.
-Tram -£5.50 (adult single)/£3 (under 15single); £8.50 (adult return)/£4.50 (under 15 return)–the closest tram stop to the flat is called Princess Street (not Princess Street West)and takes 35 minutes from the airport. This stop is approximately5 minuteswalk from the flat.
-Taxi -£18 to £25 (depending on traffic)–the queue is normally shorter in the Private Hire Car queue. Although it says Private Hire, this does not mean that you have to pre-booked a taxi in advance but you can do on 0131 555 5555 (quoting your flight number).The traffic can be bad during rush hour, especially during the festival.The taxi journey takes anything from 20 minutes to 40 minutes depending upon thetime of day.

If traveling by train then the mainline station in Edinburgh is Waverley station where you can get trains to other part of Scotland and services the main East Coast Line of England to London Kings Cross. The flat is about a 10-15 minuteswalk away from this station but if you want to get a taxi from here, there is a taxi rank and a taxi will cost about £5.

Car –there is no free parking near the flat during the weekdays till after 6.30pm when parking restrictions stop for the day. There are pay and display parking spaces near the flat. At weekends, you might find free parking spaces within a 5-minute walk of the flat (on Howe Street and the roads off Howe Street –down the hill from the flat) but as we are so central parking during the week isnt the easiest. There is a large multi story car park Omni Q Park, it is 24hr pay and display, or there is always the option of using the Park & Ride facitities during your stay.

We were an extended family of seven adults and this was perfect for us. Do not be deterred by the entrance and stairs; the apartment is lovely. Very spacious and modern. We loved the huge kitchen/living area and with the multiple bedrooms we could also spread out and have some privacy. The apartment is in New Town which we knew nothing about before arriving. Great location with tons of coffee shops and restaurants. It’s also only a few minutes from the tram for easy airport access. All in all, this was a great place for us and I would definitely stay here again.

My group of five people heartily enjoyed our stay in this unit. It has a perfect location for exploring Edinburgh. There are so many choices for dinner and pubs, some right next door. We were there during the height of the fringe festival and all the other arts festivals and the Military Tattoo. So the city was quite active. The unit is very modern and clean and we had no complaints. Very nice place.

A great flat in a brilliant location! We had an amazing time staying here and would definitely recommend for a group looking for the perfect base in the centre of Edinburgh. Had a few minor hiccups trying to check in so would recommend communicating with the host well in advance of your trip, but all in all a brilliant place to stay.

Our trip was amazingly successful mostly due to this apartment . Beautifully renovated and central , it had everything to meet our needs and more . All the rooms are tastefully decorated and the kitchen equipped with everything you would need . We were 4 couples - and it was the perfect amount of space . The location was key - we were able to walk everywhere ! Thanks for letting us experience Edinburgh with ease. Stay here - you won’t regret it

This property was perfect for us. It's a really good size, well-furnished, very clean, and the location is really central. The only thing to note is that there are lots of stairs to get to the flat, so it's not suitable for anyone looking for step-free access (we didn't need step-free access, so had no issues with it ourselves). Overall, we really enjoyed staying in the property and would happily recommend it.

We truly enjoyed our stay. With 6 adults and only 2 days to see the city, this was the perfect place for space and proximity to all the sites. The unit is comfortable and well appointed. All beds were super firm which we all appreciated. We would definitely book back on a return trip.
