This immaculate 3 bedroom apartment sleeping up to 6 people has recently been refurbished by the owners to provide an extremely comfortable base for the enjoyment of visitors to Edinburgh.
The property is situated only 2 minutes walk from the Royal Mile within site of the Scottish Parliament and the area boasts a wealth of historical and cultural treats including Holyrood Palace, the Queen's gallery and Dynamic Earth, always popular with our younger visitors. There is a tempting choice of bars and restaurants to be found within easy walking distance of the apartment as well as an array of interesting shops and boutiques, whilst the open spaces and enticing walks around Holyrood Park are just around the corner.
The apartment is situated on the 5th floor of the building which luckily offers lift service. For visitors travelling by car, there is a designated parking space available in the private gated car park.
The accommodation is accessed from a central hall, giving the apartment a pleasant feeling of space. The living room is generously proportioned and comfortably furnished with 2 leather sofas one of which doubles as a sofa bed for maximum flexibility of accommodation. The room is sympathetically decorated in neutral tones and offers TV with Freeview plus DVD and CD players. A separate dining room with good quality table and seating for 6 people also benefits from a study alcove with desk and chair, WiFi access and a telephone, making this an ideal quiet spot in which to work. The owners have provided a selection DVDs, CDs, games and books in addition to plenty of information about Edinburgh.
A modern kitchen is well equipped with oven and hob, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer drier. A good range of cutlery, crockery, glass and cookware are available so that should you wish to spend an evening relaxing in the apartment you will find that you have everything necessary to cook a meal.

Our family (5 adults) stayed in this apartment over the Christmas/New Year break this year. We were delighted with it and the added touch of a Christmas tree in the lounge made it seem quite festive! The apartment was spacious with plenty of room for us all to relax and enjoy one another's company. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. We were even able to accommodate a turkey in the oven for Christmas lunch! It was lovely to be able to set the dining room up properly for the occasion. The apartment was spotlessly clean! The location couldn't have been more perfect with everything within easy walking distance. We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it highly to families wanting to stay in Edinburgh!

The apartments at Gentles Entry were great. There was plenty of room so that we all got a some space if we wanted it. Nice to have secure parking and not have to worry about the car. There was everything we needed.
We will definately stay there in the future when down in the city.

This apartment really has it all. It is one of the best apartments in terms of comfort, equipment & location that we have ever stayed in and we will definitely be back. My only gripe is that we were delayed getting in to the apartment due to the previous guests late departure & leaving a mess to clear up but this was dealt with well by the very apologetic cleaner Olivia who left the place immaculate. We had a good lunch in the Pizza Express opposite the apartment & a fabulous celebration lunch at Browns Restaurant on George street. Otherwise we ate in as the kitchen was very well equipped & the place so comfortable (nothing to do with the football!). Edinburgh is a lovely city & this is the perfect base to explore it from.
