Access Arrangements

A "meet and greet" service is operated , whereby you will be met at a property at a pre-arranged time to give access. Full instructions of this procedure can be found in the secure guest area after a booking has been completed. It is very important that an approximate arrival time is provided before arrival for this process. Entry is from 14:00 onwards but if nobody has booked to depart on your day of arrival it will probably be very suitable for us to give you entry as early as possible. Departure is by 10am (a guaranteed late departure up to 20:00 can be obtained for 50% of that daily rate. Please contact us if you want to utilise this facility and a price will be calculated).

Please note that arrivals after 19:00 will incur a range of late arrival fee.

**LATE ARRIVAL: fees, 19:00 - 22:30 - 15 pounds, 22:31 - 00:00 - 30 pounds and 00:01 - 02:00 - 50 pounds. The latest access can be given is 02:00, otherwise it is given at 08:00 the next day. ESC accept no liability for any costs involved in alternative accommodation for this 6 hour period.

A deposit of 25% is payable on booking and the outstanding balance of the rental price must be received 2 months prior to your arrival date. For bookings made less than eight weeks before your arrival date the whole rental price falls payable at the time of booking. Please note that a separate 200 pounds refundable key/security deposit must be provided prior to arrival. This is rescinded 5 days after departure.

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 250 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 are the Princes St and St Andrew Sq stops both are approx 800 metres 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 300 metres from 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 7 days a week 08:00 - 18:30 Mon - Sat, 12:30 - 18:30 Sunday, it is very expensive and inflexible as you can only stay in one spot for a few hours.

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), You can also consider the park & ride options Edinburgh has here :-

We enjoyed the Edinburgh 13 Blair Street flat very much. Great location. Street noise was somewhat bothersome, but other than that, no complaints. Flat was clean and met our needs very well. The hair dryer listed on the amenities list was missing. We called to report this problem and a brand new hair dryer was waiting in the flat when we returned from seeing the sites. Amazing service. Damage deposit was credited within two days of our departure.


Flat was perfect for us. Clean and spacious. Street noise was bothersome, but other than that all was perfect. Perfect location. We could not find the hair dryer promised in the amenities list. We called to let management know and a brand new hair dryer was waiting for us when we returned from seeing the sites. Thank you.

Very easy to book and good communication


large comfortable apartment right in the centre of Edinburgh. Entrance stairwell to the building could do with a tidy up but the apartment itself more than made up for it.
