In order to ensure that you get the most out of your Edinburgh short break, Apartments Royal offer a choice of four excellently located apartments – all central and within easy walking distance of all local attractions.

The Royal Mile Apartment occupies an amazing location right at the heart of the Royal Mile, the hub of activity during the Edinburgh Festival period as well as being a mecca for tourists and locals alike throughout the year.
Only minutes walk from Edinburgh Castle, this apartment also offers exceptionally easy access to Holyrood Palace, Princes Street, the Scottish Parliament, Arthur’s Seat and the Crags, Edinburgh Zoo and much more.
Situated off the East side of Princes Street are the Rodney Apartments, York Apartments and Playhouse Apartments. These are closer to residential areas whilst still offering unrivalled access to some of the best Edinburgh attractions. Easy access to the historic port of Leith featuring a wealth of fantastic bars, restaurants and the Ocean Terminal shopping centre, you can also board the Royal Yacht Britannia in its permanent dock.


Edinburgh is fantastically easy to travel around, with local buses offering a fast, efficient service at all times of the day and night, while taxis are also plentiful and inexpensive. Use public transport to visit Edinburgh Zoo, the Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick, Craigmillar Castle, Rosslyn Chapel in Roslin (recently made famous by The Da Vinci Code) and much more.
