Key features

Located in a cozy Close just off the The Grassmarket is this gorgeous studio apartment, ready and waiting to show you Edinburgh. With all of the main attractions right on your doorstep, you’re perfectly placed for a whistle-stop weekend or fun-packed fortnight in Scotland’s capital. Guests are treated to the best of both worlds, as the apartment is housed in a 200 year old building, formally the Traverse theatre, yet is fully modernised. The Edmonstone’s Close Residence sleeps up to four guests, and is fully equipped with everything you need for your home away from home.

The living space has a spacious and airy feel, and features modern furnishing including comfy sofas, dining table, and contemporary art. If you can tear yourself away from the local eateries, the fully fitted kitchenette is on hand to help you rustle up your own culinary delights, and has all mod cons and appliances. A TV, DVD player and WiFi are all available for guests’ use. The shared courtyard can be accessed from French doors in the living area.

A kingsize bed and plentiful guest storage hide behind a clever partition, providing space and privacy from the living area. A further two guests can be accommodated on the sofa bed in the living area, however guests should note that this is a studio apartment, and so the two areas are not completely separated. A contemporary bathroom with shower over bath completes this truly delightful holiday apartment.

Immediately outside of the Close is The Grassmarket, a historic marketplace that has maintained its shape and a number of its historic buildings, hosting traditional pubs and restaurants. Adjoining it is the colourful West Bow/Victoria Street containing independent shops, further restaurants and pubs. Just round the corner is The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. A short walk away is George IV Bridge, where you can catch buses to other areas of the city. Waverley train station is less than one mile away.

A meet and greet service is provided, whereby you will be met at the property to be provided with keys and to be shown the property. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 19:00 may incur a late arrival fee of 15 pounds for unsociable hours. Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.

The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.

Sleeping arrangements 1 kingsize bed and one double sofa bed - please note that this is a studio apartment, please see floor plan for further clarification.

The studio apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable and extremely well located for our stay during the Fringe Festival. The kitchen was generally well equipped - although a few more side plates would have been useful. We appreciated the basics supplied: oil, salt/pepper, tea and coffee etc.


Good place for the Fringe Festival.
