Overview

About the property

A wonderful, centrally located flat a one minute walk from Princes Street

This one bedroom apartment is located on Rose Street, which runs between Princes Street and George Street and can therefore boast a superb position in the very centre of Scotland's capital.

The apartment is on the first floor of a traditional building that was built around 1790. It is rated 3 stars by the Scottish Tourist Board and can accommodate 2 people very comfortably although this can be increased to accommodate 4 people by using the sofa-bed in the living room. The lovely sitting room has a 26 inch, wall-mounted, LCD TV which has multiple digital channels. There is a DVD player and hi-fi system (with DAB radio channels). This room also benefits from a remote controlled living-flame gas fire. The fully fitted, eat-in kitchen has quality appliances and includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The shower room has a mains power shower and the double bedroom has a large fitted wardrobe. Wifi internet access is provided.

Great apartment in a great location - highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

Ideally placed in Rose Street just off Princes Street so great for shops and the Xmas market which was the reason for our visit. Apartment is on the small side but perfect for our needs with 2 adults and 2 small kids. Francois is great with very prompt responses to any enquiry and he met us when we arrived to explain everything at the apartment and was very knowledgeable about the local area etc. Strange smell which we think is coming from the hog roast shop below but didn’t really detract from our overall happiness with our stay. Would highly recommend this apartment and will look at staying here again when we return to Edinburgh which we definitely will!!

Apartment smells weird

  • 3 of 5

Location is great, apartment is fairly clean, bathroom is new and clean but the apartment smells really weird. If you leave for a day and come back in the evening the smell is really pungent. Apart from that everything is great.

Owner's Response: Yes I am sorry. The shop below has been having a problem with their oven and the smells were coming into our property. This is now being repaired and we can overcome it by opening a window.

Lovely flat, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in Franciois' flat. He was very friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. The flat was clean, warm and had everything we needed. It's right in the heart of Rose street so everything we wanted to do was on our doorstep. There is a hog roast shop underneath (which do the best sandwiches) but we couldn't smell it at all, only once in the bathroom one morning. Although the flat is small it doesn't feel it, each room has enough space and feels very cosy! We will definetly be staying here again!

the place was very central and a perfect size for two people but there was a fair amount of noise

  • 3 of 5

There was a really dark and dank stairway but inside the apartment it was really quite comfortable from a size perspective. Three things of note, there was a lot of cooking fumes and haze that came into the apartment probably from the Pork place below. Secondly there were a lot of dirty dishes that had to be rewashed and finally there was a weird vibration that effected the whole apartment that came from upstairs I believe. Despite all this I liked the location and character of the place.

Owner's Response: The stair is just part of the character! These were built over 200 years ago to accommodate the servants for the larger houses on Princes Street and George Street so the accommodation is not as salubrious. If you would like grand accommodation please let me know as I do have apartments available within these impressive townhouses. Unfortunately the oven in the shop downstairs was not working properly so fumes were coming into the flat. I presume the vibration is from the washing machine in the property upstairs so is nothing to worry about. We do have a dishwasher so there is no excuse for having dirty dishes, cutlery etc. We are just somewhat reliant upon our guests making use of the dishwasher.

Francois was an amazing host. He made sure we had what we need. He was quick to respond to our emails and was very kind. The flat was great. The location was great. We could not have been more pleased.

Location

Car: not necessary

The flat is located on Rose Street which runs parallel to both Princes Street and George Street making it a superb base from which to explore the city. You are just a 10 minute walk from Waverley Station on Princes Street so it's easy to arrive by train into the city. A host of shops, bars and restaurants are right on your doorstep so much so the only problem you'll have is trying to decide where to go and how to fit it in during your stay.

Other Activities: Shopping and dining out
