The Classic Marchmont Charm apartment is ideally located in a calm residential area, with lovely cafes and shops just around the corner. The Marchmont and Bruntsfield areas surround Spottiswoode Road, giving you the best access to the city either by foot or by bus. The Meadows and Bruntsfield Links just minutes away from the front door ensures the best opportunities for a fresh air wander or somewhere to kick around a ball, have a picnic, or just to sit on some of the lovely benches in the park reading your favourite book.
For things to do in the area, we recommend Looking Glass Books which is an easy walking distance away on Simpson Loan by Middle Meadow Walk. This ‘booktique’ café boasts its own lively literary scene with regular events and author talks. Perfect for bookworms and coffee enthusiasts. Another wonderful place to have your afternoon pick-me-up is the Pastures, just around the corner on Marchmont Crescent. Considered the focal point for the local community the Friday nights, where the owners Jane and Stan stage a range of fun events such as ‘come-dine-with-us’ and ‘grub ‘n’ games’, feature a continental-style dinner and plenty of laughs (BYOB is encouraged, another rare perk).
For a bit of a wander about, the Morningside area is not too far and is yet another great location for some alternative shopping and some lovely cafes, lunch nooks and ice cream crannies. The city centre is not far away either, and Grassmarket and Princes Street are both a bus ride away, and offer a wide array of entertainment and some of the best in the arts and culinary scenes.
Property is accessed by one step entry door on street level. This property is not suitable for wheelchairs

- Executive Car transfer
Wanting to arrive in style and relax after your fight. The Edinburgh Address can organise a transfer in a luxury Mercedes for up to 8 guests for £57.00.
- Airport Black Taxi
This option is better if you are travelling in a small group as a taxi from the airport to the west end of Princes Street is about £18 to £20 dependant on the time of day and traffic. So its not much more just to get a taxi straight to the property.
Metered parking available on Spottiswoode Rd. It is usually free to park evenings and weekends.

We really enjoyed our stay at the property while visiting our daughter at the University. Marchmont is a lovely, quiet, residential area with a Sainsburys Local at the end of the road as well as several nice cafes, a chemist etc nearby. The Meadows are only a short walk away and are a picturesque route into town. Eddie, from the agency who run the property, let us in early, was friendly and explained everything very clearly. The flat was warm and clean and very comfortable and we would definitely go back.

"It was mostly wonderful. Most of the rooms were large, clean, and well-appointed, and we enjoyed our stay a great deal. We also loved the location and the quiet neighborhood.
Three details detracted a little from our stay. The first was the kitchen. We were not prepared for such a tiny kitchen with the refrigerator so far away. We managed, of course, but it made our
Thanksgiving Day meal preparations quite the challenge.
The second was that we were not familiar with the stove (hub), and we could not find instructions for it. It took us several hours of fiddling and downloading things to figure it out.
The third was that there were many electrical outlets that were either faulty or had loose wires. It was difficult to find an outlet that would stay connected whilst using a hair dryer, for example.
I also wonder if it might be a safety hazard to have loose connections like that.
Those issues were minor and did not make it bad for us. We enjoyed the flat and felt comfortable throughout the duration of our stay."
