The Old Schoolhouse

This unique 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment is in the basement of an old school house. Dating from the 19th century it has some interesting features such as the vaulted ceiling in the twin bedroom. Please note there is a flight of stairs down from street level to the entrance of the property.

The rest of the accommodation includes a double bedroom, a shower room with toilet and a full bathroom. There is an impressive, spacious open-plan living room/dining room and superbly equipped kitchen which overlooks the courtyard. The windows act as doors in this room so direct access into this area can be gained. There is a useful utility cupboard in the hall housing the washing machine.

This location is ideal for all the sights in the Old Town with the famous Grassmarket being less than a 10 minute walk away and the Castle itself is about a 15 minute walk. Princes Street is also a 15 minute walk away and there are a host of shops, restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk.

Fabulous to bring in the New Year.

“Smart, spacious property. Really welcoming owners. Lots of light flooding into the open plan lounge and kitchen area. Within walking distance of all major attractions and 2 minutes walk to local amenities. Nice and quiet too.”

Wonderful place! Clean, spacious, comfortable!

“Francois was very nice and accommodating - super communicative. The space is really great, very clean with loads of space and in a great part of town. Well stocked kitchen (utensils) for eating in, which helps on budgets. Very cozy floor heating which was welcomed on the colder evenings. Can’t say enough! We’re definitely planning on staying here again!”
