We have listed out our top five favourites in Edinburgh for location and price (and welcome).
Love the location beside Holyrood Park and proximate for Uni and the old Town. Typical Victorian walk-up tenement style. Owner Sally is recommended for panache and comfy. From $41 or so
Great little apartment on the Royal Mile in a typical old Edinburgh tenement building. Iron bedstead and antique furnishing combined with modern twists. Small but oh so charming
With its location on Grassmarket surrounded by pubs and shops and located underneath the castle, this is another excellent location. Minimum stay applies.
Very cool apartment with iron circular staircase and modern furnishing. Cockburn Street is just off the Royal Mile and this is just wonderfully cool and located perfectly
Cheap as hell but still 10 minutes away and located at the top of Leith Walk and the local super delis. Community area and friendly and just a walk up the hill to the cery centre.
