Key features

This is a welcoming, modern and bright first floor flat on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. It features a large, comfortable lounge with dining area and balcony, fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with king-sized bed, and shower-room. Corner Sofa (converts into generous double bed); dining table and chairs; sideboard; king-sized bed; wardrobe and chest of drawers; travel cot available on request. The property also has free wifi internet access.

Close to all major tourist attractions, including Holyrood Palace and Scottish Parliament, it is convenient for many cafes, restaurants and pubs, and Edinburgh bus tours. It is minutes from Waverley station and Airport shuttle terminus.

The apartment is located in Brown’s Close, which is on the Canongate (part of the Royal Mile), metres from Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament building.

On the first floor with one flight of stairs, it is fully modernized, and centrally heated. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, washer/dryer, fridge with freezer compartment, and dishwasher. The spacious bedroom contains a king-size bed and ample storage. The lounge is comfortably furnished, with a sofa-bed, Freeview television with DVD player, HiFi with CD player and iPod/MP3 docking, and a selection of books, DVDs and CDs, and features a dining area at one end; a glass-panelled door leads on to a small balcony with views of the surrounding area.

With wood flooring throughout (excluding the shower room), gas central heating and instant hot water, this is a luxurious base from which to enjoy your visit to Edinburgh, whether for business or pleasure.

Smoking is not permitted in the flat, but smokers can use the balcony.

There are numerous options for eating and drinking in the area, with a
teahouse, a Starbuck’s and a pub all within 100 metres, and numerous other
options beyond. A small local grocer shop is also within 100 metres, and a
Tesco Express supermarket is within 5 minutes walk, with a large Sainsbury
supermarket about 10-15 minutes walk away. The Royal Mile and surrounding area offer a range of shops for browsing and purchasing anything from tourist souvenirs through Scotch whisky and bagpipes to belly-dancing outfits and Venetian glass!

Various Edinburgh Bus Tours can be joined at the bus stop across the road
from the apartment, as can Lothian Region buses which can transport you to
all parts of the city. From a stop close to the apartment, a bus can take
you direct to Ocean Terminal, where the Royal Yacht Britannia is moored.

Also within a few minutes walk are the Queens Park and Arthur’s Seat: with
a little exertion, you can experience fresh air, exercise AND get some of
the best views of Edinburgh from Salisbury Crags and the top of Arthur’s
Seat! There is a children’s play park inside the Park.

Cycle hire is available near the apartment, and there are various cycle
routes around the Queens Park and Edinburgh.

For those interested in outdoor activities, there are many walking trails
in East Lothian and the Borders. There are lots of bird-watching
opportunities, especially at St Abbs and the Isle of May, as well as the
Seabird Centre in North Berwick. For those interested in history, there are many castles and stately homes some highlights include Sir Walter Scott’s house, Abbotsford; the abbeys of Jedburgh and Melrose; Linlithgow Palace; Tantallon Castle; and Hopetoun House.

we were very comfortable in Margaret's and David's apartment, it was well located, well equipped and we could not ask for a better place to stay in,

David has been very kind to us and we appreciated his help.
On a whole...would recommend Brown's apartment to anyone who is looking for a quiet and spotless place to stay in the heart of the city.

good and prompt


The apartment is beautiful decorated, well prepared, and the owner is so caring to put some biscuit, wine, and tidbits. These the small caring preparation that really touch us. If really want to think of something negative, then i would say the distance to the station is slightly further, about 15 mins walk.
