St Giles St, on Royal Mile, 200 metres from Edinburgh Castle

Location

Directions

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 is the Princes St stop which is approx 350 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 250 metres from Bank St. 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.

Parking

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 - 20 pounds or more or enter the postcode of the property you have booked into this website http://www.parkopedia.co.uk/

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.

We had great service from Glenn at ESC, however dealing with "Sparkle Property Mgmt" was not pleasant at all. Not sure if they are part of ESC or not, don't remember dealing with them on past bookings, but we likely won't book again through ESC due to that experience.

We have stayed at this flat before and the location is fantastic, but the flat is getting a bit tired looking. Seems like it needs a really good scrub down.
Didn't find that the flat was well stocked for a week stay either (2 rolls of toilet paper and about 6 sheets of paper towel left!!)

Very helpful as always, allowed us early access to the apartment to drop off our bags. The apartment has had a facelift since our last visit and we were impressed with the new kitchen which had everything we needed. The bathroom had also been updated and I was sorry to see that the bath had been replaced with a shower. The shower itself was very slippy when wet and I think that some anti-slip treatment to the tray or some hand grabs would save someone a nasty tumble! Overall though a lovely apartment with superb views of the Royal Mile. We will be back!

Great apartment, sorry to see that the bath has gone in the refurbishment but still a fantastic location.

Great location, nice accommodations. Stairs were bit tricky. The third set has two hand rails which helps immensely. I would suggest double handrails all the way from the first floor as many of the stairs are uneven heights.

great location, good value, clean comfortable accommodations

My wife, 9 month old son and I recently travelled to Edinburgh for a short (3 day) trip to celebrate my birthday. We came across this self catering apartment and couldn't believe the value for money given the incredible location!

We were met, by Dave, outside the apartment having travelled in from the airport and he made us feel extremely welcome and made a couple of helpful suggestions. We'd travelled to Edinburgh before, but this location cannot be beaten.

Plenty of walking and time spent amongst the heart of Edinburgh later, and we could not have been happier with our visit. A central 'bolt hole' to return to and the cherry on the top of a lovely time in a fantastic city.

Thanks again!

Excellent value for money
