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 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.

The climb up the narrow, winding stairs was daunting, (and not for the faint of heart) but the apartment was very clean, comfortable, and beautifully situated in the center of all the attractions you hope to see when coming to Edinburgh. It was great to have such a nice kitchen to come home to when we didn't want to eat out.

My one suggestion for the management: for your visitors from the US, please add a page in your book about what the symbols on the washer/dryer mean! I never did figure out how to get clothes dry as well as clean.

Otherwise--it was fantastic!

Advocates Suite is perfectly located at the Centre of the Royal Mile with the Castle a only short walk away. It is surrounded by cafe's and bars and even has a Starbucks at the bottom of the Stair.
Once you have survived the four flights of stairs, the apartment is clean and cosy and has amazing decoration.
We found it and ideal comforting and relaxing base to explore Edinburgh and would not hesitate in recommending it,.
