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 New Town

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!

Beautiful apartment! Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Edinburgh (though short!) and had a wonderful stay in this fantastic ground floor apartment. Everything was just as you see in the pictures. Loved the wood floors and the huge windows with wood shutters. Kitchen was well stocked and all toiletries included. Bed was super comfortable and the combination of wood shutters and draperies kept it nice and dark at night for sleeping. It was also very quiet at night. Alexandra was great to work with - providing us advice on the best way to arrive from the airport, showing us around the apartment and providing restaurant suggestions (many very close by!). If you intend to rent a car from here, please be aware that Hertz at 10 Picardy Place takes a very long time. It took 1.5 hours plus to get our car before starting our tour of the Highlands. Would we recommend this apartment - absolutely!!! Loved it!

Beautiful apartment, in great location

  • 5 of 5

As regular visitors to Edinburgh,this is by far the best apartment we have ever stayed in. The owner has beautifully designed the interior to a very high standard and you can see no expense spared and that added luxury. Everything felt very new and not tired at all. Also great location, very close to all amenities and attractions. Will stay again for sure.

Beautiful Property, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The lovely apartment in Edinburgh made our stay exceptional. Alexandra has gone out of her way to provide for every possible amenity in a beautifully appointed flawless flat. She was a delight to work with. The location is close to both bus and trolley stops , so getting around town was a breeze. There are numerous restaurants and markets in the area and the walk from the main street of New Town is not longer than 15 minutes. Thanks for a superb introduction to this lovely city.
