Castle View Suite 3 Old Town Edinburgh



There are three options to get from Edinburgh airport to the city centre, all take approx 30-35 minutes. The main rail station Waverley is approx 1 km metres from the apt.

1. Edinburgh trams, approx every 8-10 mins (Sunday 12-15 mins), right outside terminal, the nearest drop off point for the apt is the Shandwick Place stop which is approx 1 km away. Cost 8.50 pounds for adults and 4.50 pounds for children for a RETURN journey.

2. Airport express bus, every 15 minutes right outside terminal building, drop off point on Waverley Bridge approx 1 km from the apt Costs 7.50 pounds per person for a RETURN journey.

3. Taxi, many can be found right outside the terminal building and will cost 15 - 20 pounds for a one way journey. However a taxi will drop you off right outside the property you have booked.


Street parking is enforced Mon Sat 08:00 - 18:30, it is expensive and inflexible as you can only stay in one spot for a few hours.

There are many city centre car parks to choose from, you can use these for a short time or full days which cost approx 16 pounds or more or enter the postcode of the property you have booked into this website

Alternatively if you do not plan your use your car much, (Edinburgh is a relatively small city centre and is much better explored on foot), leave your car in a well lit residential street outside the restricted city centre, the whole operation should take approx 30 minutes. Alternatively, the return journey in a taxi from an unrestricted area (approx 2.5 km) would be less than one days parking charges. Information on the best areas for this can be provided.

everything went smoth and easy and very friendly. The timing was perfect, the flat is gorgeous. I hope I can come back one day. And yes, I do recommend it. Thank you very much for everything.


The flat is just perfect. There is everything you need for a holiday in Edinburgh

Really enjoyed our stay. Flat was clean, well appointed, and very centrally located. We had a couple of problems with the oven and the TV and someone came immediately to fix both. <br /><br />Everyone we dealt with was very professional - we ended up being delayed into Edinburgh by two hours due to a road diversion and Kasia was extremely understanding about this and it was no problem to meet her later than expected. When we called about the TV and oven, the customer service rep was extremely friendly and understanding. <br /><br />Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family.

Very responsive both before I arrived and in sorting out an issue I had whilst staying in the flat....even responding out of hours. Very friendly and courteous.
Check in was rather hastily performed however.


The flat was spotlessly clean and had absolutely everything I needed......Very generous. Bed very comfy. Amazing view and good location. Could do with a bit of a freshen up however....just a bit tired looking and a bit of an odour of ‘old chair’!
Mice scratching in the skirting boards especially at night but no evidence they could enter the flat.( That wants sorting really.)
WiFi whistles (like tinnitus) Dead batteries in the clocks.
Heating was on(in a heatwave!) when I I had to turn it off...guy who showed me round was gone in a flash!
A shame,as the whole place is great just s need a bit more attention to detail could so easily be spectacular!

Great flat right in the middle of the Grassmarket. The flat was a good size with everything thought of. It was spotlessly clean and the inlaid welcome to collect the keys was nice touch and very helpful.
I have stayed a few times now in different flats with Edinburgh Self Catering and would recommend them without hesitation
