Castle View Suite 1 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 1km 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.

As ever the apartment was clean and well decorated. This is the second time that we have stayed at this particular apartment and will be booking for August 2019.
It is perfectly located on the Grassmarket, allowing a good view of the street entertainment and comings and goings while enjoying a rest from the hectic time during the Edinburgh Festival. We find it easy and quick to get to most venues on foot, it is only 10min to Princes Street or the George Square venue.
The meet and greet was prompt and efficient. The NCP car park is close and we were able to carry most of our belongings in one trip, including our Nespresso machine!


Good service, including meet and greet.
Lovely apartment with a very quiet rear bedroom.
Well stocked kitchen.
Comfortable lounge/dining area.
Plenty of clean bedding and towels.
