Description from owner


Midbow Apartment is a traditional Edinburgh tenement flat with beautiful period features, situated half way up one of Edinburgh's oldest and most celebrated streets. It's a thriving and colourful cobbled street of quirky shops, restaurants and bars.

The one-bedroom Midbow Apartment is on the first floor, and is furnished with beautiful solid wood furniture and original art. The bedroom has a solid teak superking four-poster bed, and the living room an amazing Clei Doc XL foldaway metamorphic sofa bunk bed, as well as another sofa bed, so it sleeps 4 in comfort. It's ideal for short breaks, business and vacation rentals. Please note that it is not available for parties.

The flat is in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town on a picturesque cobbled street of interesting shops, restaurants and cafes. The Royal Mile and Grassmarket are less than a minute away, and the Castle, Greyfriar's Bobby and the Museum of Scotland are all within three minutes walk. All the other attractions and amenities of the Old Town are also nearby, and Waverley Station and Princes Street less than ten minutes on foot.

“Convenient, well furnished, spacious, affordable”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2019

This antique-filled flat is mere steps away from the Royal Mile and near to National Library, National Museum, Waverly Station, and a variety of fine eateries. The flat had a helpful notebook with history of furnishings, instructions for flat amenities, and helpful suggestions on eating, shopping, and transportation. It is on a noisy street, above a well-liked bar, which we expected. We would stay here again.

Response from the owner Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed the stay and found the notebook helpful. We hope that we can welcome you again to Edinburgh in the not too distant future. Have a super summer. Warm regards, Antonia and Jon

Response from the owner Dear Leilah, We are glad that you found the flat interesting and hope that you enjoyed the wonderful city of Edinburgh. The flat can be noisy at times as the street is so central in the old town of a capital city and as we mention has many restaurants and bars. We hope you weren't too surprised that the bunk bed is in the living room, as the listing clearly states that this is a one bedroom flat with a foldaway metamorphic sofa bunk bed in the living room. We hope you were still able to enjoy your stay. Have a lovely summer.
