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!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is, without question, among the very best places we have stayed. It is immaculately maintained, has everything you would need, is elegant in the Georgian style, and is comfortable and cozy. It's a bit off the beaten path but close to the center of Edinburgh, so, for us, it was ideally located, quiet yet close to the heart of town.

Alexandra is an marvelous hostess, attentive and experienced. She wants you to be happy.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights in this beautifully decorated apartment and it was just perfect for the two of us. Alexandra has thought of everything to make your stay a real home from home including tea and coffee, quality toiletries and furnishings. The location was ideal for us - just a 10minute walk to the city centre but a really excellent selection of restaurants, bars, delicatessens and cafes 2 minutes walk from the apartment. We loved it and hope to return soon. Thank you
