Bohemian Writers Retreat in Heart of The Old Town

We have a little slice of peace in the heart of Grassmarket, The Old Town. It is a writer's retreat, quiet and relaxing but just a stone's throw away from an abundance of the best bars and restaurants in the city. It is our Western home when in the UK, and is a relaxing and simple space compiled with art and items from our fifty years of travel around the world, and somewhere you can feel totally relaxed.The Space:Our space is one double bedroom with large built in storage space. There is a living space in which you can relax with two day beds on either side, a writing desk, television with digi box. The windows are double glazed blocking out any noise from The Old Town. The kitchen is completely equipped for all you need, and the bathroom features a small tub and overhead shower.Guest Access:Guests will have full unrestricted access to the property including free wifi.The Neighborhood:The Old Town has preserved its medieval plan and many Reformation-era buildings. One end is closed by the castle and the main artery The High Street (or the Royal Mile) leads away from it; minor streets (called closes or wynds) bud off the main spine in a herringbone pattern. Large squares mark the location of markets or surround major public buildings such as St Giles Cathedral and the Law Courts. Other notable places of interest nearby include the Royal Museum of Scotland, Surgeons' Hall, the Royal Festival Theatre, and the University of Edinburgh. The street layout, typical of the old quarters of many northern European cities, is made especially picturesque in Edinburgh, where the castle perches on top of a rocky crag, the remnants of a dormant volcano, and the main street runs down the crest of a ridge from it.Getting Around:There are a large number of buses running through the old town, and a bus stop directly outside the apartment that services the city. You can download the Lothian Buses/Transport for Edinburgh app to your phone and easily navigate the city's public transport.Other Things to Note:The property is professionally cleaned and hotel quality linens and towels will be provided for your stay.House Rules:• No smoking• No pets• No parties or events• Check-in is anytime after 3PM

una estafa
el unico punto positivo que le pongo es por su ubicacion, el apartamento esta muy mal cuidado y no brilla por su limpieza. Lo peor fue que lo vendieron con desayuno buffet y al llegar nos avisan que no tenemos desayuno, gracias a HOTELES.COM que se hizo cargo del problema y al volver presentamos los tickets y ellos fueron responsables ya que por parte del alojamiento se lavaron las manos y solo dijeron "disculpen las molestias" cuando fueron ellos quien lo publicitaron con desayuno incluido. Ademas como no nos dejaron ningun sitio para dejar las maletas antes de la hora de entrada, en principio nos ofrecieron un descuento para dejarlas en un locker, lo cual fue otra mentira! no nos hicieron ningun descuento! me parece fatal y mucha falta de profesionalidad que no te den lo que ofrecen y por lo cual tu pagas! no lo recomiendo! y otra vez GRACIAS A HOTELES.COM por su atencion y solucion siempre a los inconvenientes!
