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.

We were told we would be able to check in luggage if apartment not yet ready months in advance. Not true. Had to wait hours.
Also, person meeting us incorrectly told us we had a dryer, not just a washer and we spent hours trying to keep getting clothes to not be soaking wet to no success. Phoned several times to find out problem, and told it must be broken.
We returned a week later to same apartment: he then told us he had been wrong and that the machine was only a washer!!!
A POSITIVE is that he helped us carry our suitcase upstairs.and apologized for his error first visit.


Stairs are really hard to deal with luggage as warned but be aware they are really tiny spiral stairs

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.

We had a wonderful stay at Ladystairs, everything was catered for. The large bed was lovely to relax in with a cup of tea in the mornings whilst catching up the news on the wall mounted televsion in the bedroom. The location was just fabulous, close to all the things you would want to see in Edinburgh. It was so easy to pop back and have a quick cup tea whilst wathcing all the going on's in the famous Royal Mile below.
