HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Sit back and relax in The Portsburgh Square Residence. Tucked just behind the Grassmarket in the Old Town, this one-bedroom apartment enjoys an enviable location, but with all of the peace and quiet of an off-street setting.

The lovely and light living/kitchen area features comfy seating and sofa bed, flatscreen TV and unlimited Wi-Fi. The newly refurbished kitchenette comes fully equipped with everything you need for a few days in Edinburgh, including a microwave, fridge and a few bits and pieces to get you started when you arrive. The cosy master bedroom offers a double bed and guest storage. A family bathroom with shower over bath completes this delightful home from home.

The Portsburgh Square Residence’s location is simply the best! Sitting on the edge of the Grassmarket and just a few minutes’ stroll from the Royal Mile, the local area is brimming with history and things to do. Whether you’d like to browse the varied boutiques on Cockburn Street or have a good old fashioned pub lunch while you gaze up at the Castle, this property has it all. The apartment itself is a grade C listed building, which occupies an ancient site within the World Heritage Trust area of Edinburgh's Old Town.

Princes Street is a mere 10 minute stroll away, and the Royal Mile is even closer. We guarantee that you’ll find intrigue galore on your doorstep - but if you’d like to venture further afield, Waverley train station is within easy walking distance and the area is well serviced by the extremely efficient Lothian Buses. 

This property operates a key safe, so you can let yourself in to the property any time after 4pm. The key safe code will be issued before your arrival.

If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.

The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.

This apartment is in an excellent location. Edinburgh is a 'walk around' kind of city (even with the hills) and this is a great central location. You can get to almost anywhere of interest in 20 min or less walk. It is located near an area of many pubs and restaurants and ther…
