Nestled close to Edinburgh's city centre, this cosy apartment welcomes travellers and their furry friends. It's worth noting that there are three flights of steps up to this home's entrance and no lift, but it's suited to families and friends alike. The fireplaces make the living room and main bedroom extra comfortable, and the main bedroom enjoys its own en-suite bathroom. The location is the highlight here – you'll be well-placed to explore the city, with just minutes between you and Princes Street Gardens and Edinburgh Castle. Shops and restaurants are within easy reach, and while parking will be tricky, you won't need a car here.

There’s a lot more than beautiful architecture on offer here though. Located in the centre of the city, it’s a short walk from Waverley Station, and well serviced by public transport. Princes Street, George Street, St Andrew’s Square, and the West End...
