Ladystairs 1, on Royal Mile, 150 metres from Edinburgh Castle



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 300 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 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.

Have used ESC several times now and always found the handovers smooth. Lucaz was waiting for us on our arrival this year and gave good clear instructions about the flat. Accommodation was of the usual high standard and location perfect.


Perfect location. Price comparable with other good standard accommodation.

Flat OK, although generally grubby. Post visit response to a few suggested improvements down right aggressive. Would not use again!


Expensive enough without having to carry out my own cleaning with products I had to go out of my way to purchase!

Our response

Service rating : Extremely worrying that this person whom we had a difficult relationship with has waited 8 months to place these detrimental erroneous comments and are certainly not a true account of the sequence of events. We do however agree it is in the interest of both parties if we never meet again.
Product : There was no need to carry cleaning products, if there was something not satisfactory on arrival all that had to be done was contact the guest relations team to get it remedied.

Dave did a great job meeting us & showing us the unit.


Unit is in a great location. There a 2 flights of stairs, so beware if there is a mobility issue.
Unit had everything as advertised.

From our initial communication to the final refund of our deposit, Edinburgh Self catering has been wonderful. They were always in contact with us with timely information, including local restaurant reviews. We were meet in a timely fashion to get in to our accommodations and always informed about next steps. Our flat was clean, well stocked, very comfortable, and just as described. I wouldn't hesitate to book with this group again.


Very comfortable, just as described, and in a prime location. It will be a little noisy even late into the night, but that's to be expected in a busy tourist city.
