About the property

Queen Street

These luxurious flats are located in an elegant Georgian townhouse, less than a 5 minute walk from central Princes Street and provide a very high standard of accommodation.

The first floor apartment (no. 2) is bi-annually inspected by the Scottish Tourist Board and awarded 5 stars - a world class grading. The flat is superbly equipped with a 43' plasma screen TV and an integrated sound system supplying music to every room in the flat. The 3 large windows overlook the delightful private Queen Street gardens for which a key is provided. This elegant room benefits from a remote controlled gas coal-effect fire and the two large sofas convert into beds should guests be staying over. The modern kitchen has granite worktops and is fully equipped with Siemens washer/dryer, Siemens dishwasher, two Siemens ovens - one with microwave - fridge freezer, waste disposal unit and wall-mounted LCD TV. There is a 3 ring electric induction hob and a large gas ring to choose from. The luxury shower has a ceiling 'drench' head and 4 body jets. The bedroom, situated to the quiet rear of the property, has a fantastic antique 4 poster bed, fitted wardrobes and dressing table. Clock radio, hair dryer, iron and ironing board are provided as is free Wi-Fi.

The ground floor apartment (no 1) has a similarly impressive living room but has the added feature of an early 19th century wall mural. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The stylish bedroom faces the quiet rear of the building. Please note that the shower room is accessed from the bedroom.

The apartment overlooks the private Queen Street Gardens for which a key is provided. This is a peaceful haven in the middle of the city centre with manicured lawns, mature trees and an array of beautiful flowers and shrubs. There is small lake with an island in the gardens which is reputed to have given Robert Louis Stevenson (who lived on the other side of the gardens when he was a boy) the idea for his book 'Treasure Island'.

5 Star, All the Way!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this wonderful apartment on Queen Street. It's a lovely apartment with a comfy bed, wonderful kitchen (stocked with anything one would need for cooking), lots of light from the big beautiful windows, very quiet and walking distant to Waverley Station, Old Town and many wonderful restaurants and pubs.

Great apartment in a convenient location - we will be back

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Edinburgh. This apartment is conveniently located, and was well appointed with everything we needed. Francois was helpful and made sure we felt at home in the place. A grocery store is only a few blocks away and there are many restaurants and pubs nearby.

Francois is a great host. We have stayed in the downstairs apartment on our last trip over in November. This apartment was perfect for us this visit.

Thank you Francois.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is terrific. It is light and roomy and comfortable. It has a large living room with big windows with a nice view of the private garden across the street. That private garden is accessible for renters and is beautiful and quiet. The photos on the site and the owner's description provide an excellent sense of the apartment.The location of the apartment is perfect. It is quiet and there are a number of really good restaurants nearby. We didn't have enough time in five days to get to all of them. Old Town is a very manageable walk away, as are the Royal Botanic Gardens. It was easy to walk every where. I recommend this apartment highly.
