ALTIDO Iconic Colorful 2-bed Home on the Royal MileApartment - edinburgh
Wireless internet connection
Located in the heart of Old Town Edinburgh, my flat expresses my style and love of travel and the Arts. Rugged modern and elegant, my home is unbeatable for its central location. It is my sanctuary amongst the gothic beauty of the Immortal city.
If you are visiting Edinburgh to connect with the impressive collection of Art Galleries, Museums, festivals, historic monuments then I invite you to spend time at my home, where you can wander and be inspired like a local.
The Living space has a collection of eclectic Art collected from my travels around the world. A large flat-screen TV sits above the original Victorian decorative fireplace with three large windows that offer unbeatable views out to The Royal Mile. Through the windows you can see Iconic Carlton Hill and the Nelson Monument.
There is a sofa bed.
The other room is an extension of the sleeping space. Decorated in more neutral tones, it's a sitting room to read or enjoy the beautiful views. Here you will find seating, a wardrobe and storage for your stay. In a snug room in the corner is the bed chamber, hidden behind authentic shutters reclaimed from an old church down in Leith.You will once again see amazing views of Carlton Hill and the Nelson Monument.
This home is managed by ALTIDO Scotland. From affordable 1-bed flats to grand family homes, we are proud to offer our guests a wide selection of top-quality properties across Scotland, all underpinned with hotel-standard hospitality services.
My Kitchen has Prince Albert looking after it whilst I am away, Albert is my mounted stag head ( he looks a bit rough as he is over 150 years old ) Here he will look after you as you make coffee, tea or light meals that you may wish to prepare. I have a microwave, kettle and toaster as well as the essential crockery, glasses, and cooking items. There is also a breakfast nook offering nice bright views.
ALTIDO Scotland will be in touch to assist you with airport transfers and in-stay services, such as in-stay cleans, linen changes and childcare equipment.
If there is anything that has been missed out or if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch! All feedback is appreciated.
The bathroom stands out with its original 18th century stone work, exposed beams and espresso tiles giving a modern rugged elegance. The walk in rain fall shower will relax you and is a real feature next to the small window, home to my Lemon tree Attilio.

The Old Town of Edinburgh is Ancient Edinburgh. It has been home to King's and Queen's, Alchemist's and Authors. If you are quite you can hear the whispers and echoes of them all. The Royal mile a creative and political backbone hosting many parades dull of pomp and ceremony. It has access to all the major places of interest which are less than 10 minutes walk. My favourites include the national portrait gallery, the writers museum, Holyrood palace, Arthurs seat, dean village, the vibrant west end and of course prince's street gardens. If you need any recommendations for anything I'm your guy.
EDINBURGH AIRPORT: From Edinburgh Airport take the tram to St Andrew Square or the Airlink bus to the final stop. From here my home is a 5-10 minute walk.
TRAIN: The nearest railway station is Edinburgh Waverley. From the station my home is a 5 minute walk.
BUSES: Lothian Buses is the main bus operator here in Edinburgh. They offer a great free app that provides route maps, fare information and live bus times. It is a great tool for getting around the city.
WALKING: As my home is so central you will be able to walk to most places within the city centre, it really is the best way to get about.
