The Old Fishmarket Residence
Cool, Calm and Collected; The Old Fishmarket Residence is newly refurbished throughout and perfectly located for your next visit to Edinburgh. Sitting pretty high above the Royal Mile, this two bedroom apartment seamlessly blends lovingly restored original features with contemporary design to present a charming pied-a-terre in the heart of the Old Town.
With stylish seating, contemporary artwork and a slick, modern kitchen, the open plan kitchen and living area provides the perfect space for relaxing after a long day exploring the city, or planning your next adventure over a coffee and quick breakfast. Guests are treated to the comfort of chic interiors, but the beautiful history of the building is allowed to shine through with stripped wooden floors and vaulted ceilings with Velux windows. A dishwasher, large TV with Freeview, and unlimited WiFi offer a few more home comforts.
Choose between two bedrooms, both with sumptuous king-size beds, plush carpet and charming décor. One bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room, and a further shower room completes this delightful home from home.
In terms of location, you simply could not ask for more. The Old Fishmarket Residence sits in a traditional Close off of the Royal Mile, putting you in amongst all of the action in Edinburgh’s world famous medieval Old Town. You’ll have some fairly regal neighbours as Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse are barely a 5 and 15 minute stroll from the apartment. You can also be in the New Town within a few minutes’ walk, home to designer shopping, destination dining and both national and independent art galleries.
