This beautifully decorated split level duplex truly is a hidden gem in the heart of the city. It is the kind of apartment that you would like to own and is a perfect retreat for both long and short stays. The property is located in walking distance of many of Edinburgh's popular tourist attractions and is close to a lively nightlife area making it much more suitable for groups there to enjoy that aspect of Edinburgh.

LOUNGE
On entering the apartment you step straight into a spacious lounge area which is dominated by the wooden staircase in the centre of the room. Tastefully decorated there is TV, DVD player and stereo system.

KITCHEN
The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with microwave oven, gas hob and electric oven and crockery for up to four persons. A fold away kitchen dining table is perfect for up seating up to four. There is a separate utility room with washing machine and American fridge.

The wood panelled apartment hallway provides plenty of space for luggage and coats etc and there is a toilet and shower located off the hall. Linger a while to check out some of the scenes of bygone Edinburgh.

BEDROOM
The bedroom takes up the whole of the lower level and has a beautiful en-suite bathroom with shower. Double glass doors at the entrance to the bedroom provide privacy from the lounge.

ADDITIONAL SLEEPING AREA
This is a large windowless room situated next to the wc/shower room on the main floor that contains a double bed and has ample storage and hanging space. Due to this room not being a proper bedroom because of the lack of a window this apartment has been priced just slightly above the rates for a 1 bedroom property as it is marketed as such. Ventilation is provided by leaving the door ajar or a externally vented fan.

SHOWER ROOM
Upstairs next to the additional sleeping area, is serviced by a shower-room with power shower. WC also here.

Service:

The only issue I had was that I was supposed to receive a full booking confirmation which I never did and then had to email and ask for it again as I had no details on how to enter the apartment.

Product:

The apartment itself was stunning and the location in relation to the Royal Mile was perfect. However, it is 2 doors away from a pub/nightclub which you can hear music from sometimes until 3/4 in the morning which isn't ideal. We also had underground tours which ended right outside our door so we would get woken up at midnight with people shouting outside the flat. If you are a fan of sleeping or lie ins, I wouldn't recommend this particular apartment. I also wouldn't recommend it to anyone with young children 1. Because of noise and 2. Because of the fetish nights that happen in the club at the bottom of the road. The plumbing in the flat is tempremental and makes the most awful noise when draining. We had an issue where waste sewage came up the downstairs toilet however the owner saw to it right away and the issue was sorted. The tv remote didn't work for the TV which isn't a huge deal, it just meant I had to download one to my phone or change it manually. Also, I feel the need to carry any rubbish/bin bags to the bottom of the other street is a bit strange. I don't understand why if there are people staying in the flat week in week out, why you are required to take bags of rubbish to another street. Why are there no bins to use in the same street? All in all we had a good time in the flat in relation to location and decor etc however couldn't sleep very easily and we were woken up every morning with the sound of bottles smashing in to a bin. Not to mention when the pub got deliveries they parked the lorry right at our door and we were unable to step out of the flat so thankfully there wasn't an emergency. This also was accompanied by the delivery drivers rolling kegs down the street and shouting and whistling to each other at 8am in the morning! Lovely flat flat, great location but terrible if you want to relax.
