Key features

Perched above the city, The Lothian Road Residence is a fantastic (not so) little pied-à-terre perfect for your next jaunt to Edinburgh. With three double bedrooms, stripped wooden floors, and views of Edinburgh Castle, this apartment is simply not to be missed.

Taking prime position on the junction of Lothian Road and Bread Street, the light and airy lounge boasts urban views, perfect for people-watching in the cityscape below, or cast your eye right for your own private view of Edinburgh Castle. Stylishly furnished throughout, we invite you to rest your weary feet after a long day’s sightseeing or shopping. The large, flat screen TV and unlimited WiFi should keep you entertained until dinner, at which point why not take advantage of this fantastic location and explore some of the many restaurants and bars on Lothian Road below? If you’ve got the energy and enthusiasm, the fully fitted kitchen is perfectly equipped to help you rustle up your own culinary delights - perhaps using some delicious ingredients from the Castle Terrace Farmers’ Market, running just around the corner every Saturday.

Three double bedrooms are decorated in minimalist design to help you switch off and dream the night away. A family bathroom with shower over bath, and separate WC complete this lovely home from home.

In terms of location, this superb apartment could not do any better. Situated on Lothian Road, all of Edinburgh's main attractions are just a few minutes' walk away, including Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Grassmarket and The Old Town. The immediate area is filled with bars, restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops, and Lothian Road is a main artery for buses running to all areas within the city. Haymarket and Waverley train stations are only 0.5 and 1 mile, respectively, and Edinburgh Airport is just 8 miles away. The nearest tram stop is on Shandwick Place, just a few minutes away at the end of Lothian Road.

Very professional, the apartment was clean and access was easy. There was adequate heating, the apartment was light and spacious and the price was fair.


The location is fantastic, even with a view of the castle in the kitchen. Big windows for lots of light and all mod cons.

Our response

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback. We are delighted that you had such a great stay and enjoyed the view of Edinburgh Castle from the kitchen. Heating is always a must for an autumn stay in Edinburgh! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon

Good information,no problems to get the key.The flat was nice,but the stairwell was very dirty, dark and a problem


The stairwell was dirty, dark in the evening and we don't like to use it.The flat was nice with a good kitchen, comfortable bedrooms. The bathroom was small but clean. We like to stay there.Please clean the stairwell....

Our response

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are glad you found the check in process straightforward. Thank you for bringing the communal stairwell to our attention, we will pass this onto the property manager for review. It's great to see another guest enjoy their stay and we hope to welcome you back soon.

Really easy to book and were quick to help with a few questions I had about payments.


Awesome apartment in a great location. There are loads of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, Starbucks etc on Lothian Road itself, then you are also just on the corner of the Old Town and about ten minutes walk from the New Town.

Everything was really clean and looked just like it does in the photos. Easy to arrange arrival and Calum was available when we had annoying questions!
