About Alexandra Adamson

My name is Alexandra and I live in Edinburgh. My partner is an engineer and I work part time for a property management company. My passion is dancing and my husband's passion is cycling. We have spent many holidays snowboarding or cycling but in the last few years we have slowed down on the sporting pursuits and like to explore new places on foot!

Alexandra Adamson purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Alexandra Adamson chose Edinburgh

If you love historic property and want to experience Georgian character and luxury, you will not be disappointed.

The area is a UNESCO world heritage site and considered to be a masterpiece of city planning.

We have brought an 1840's property to life and the location belies the calm and peaceful feeling you get when you stay here.

The area Broughton has retained it's sense of community within the city, as we also benefit from the local shops and specialty outlets surrounding the property.

What makes this apartment unique

You would be never think our apartment was in the city so we love the fact that it is so quiet but literally 90 seconds (I've timed it) from Broughton Street where we can shop for basics or specialty items. There are so many restaurants, cafes and bars you are spoilt for choice. I love that we can walk to the main shops in and around Princes and George Street and our new tram system is up and running - 180 m and a 5 min walk from the apartment!

Awesome apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this amazing apartment Feb7-9/17 after attending a wedding in Ireland. We cannot praise Alexandra enough for the beautiful surroundings she has provided and all the little extra thoughtful details were so much appreciated (even down to slippers and umbrellas). The location is perfect - within walking distance of everything Royal Mile - Edinburgh Castle etc and on the tram line from the airport.

Furnishings are exquisite and very comfortable. Great light in the apartment and very updated bathroom.

Don't miss this one! Alexandra is a delight and so welcoming! Hope to be back. SOON!

Great location to explore Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely few days in this apartment. It was in a quiet spot in a great location for exploring Edinburgh on foot. The apartment was warm and extremely comfortable with a range of toiletries /teas and coffees provided. It was thoughtfully equipped with everything that you could need if you wanted to eat in, as well as plenty suggestions for places to eat out. Alexandra was so welcoming and went out of her way to fit in with our arrival/departure arrangements. We would definitely use this apartment again.
