Information about Edinburgh

Edinburgh is Scotland’s vibrant capital and cultural centre. The city is a popular destination for tourists, especially in summer when it hosts the biggest arts festival in the world, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Instead of being stuck with the tourists in a standard hotel, renting a holiday apartment in from 9flats will have you living side by side with the locals. Proud of their city, the local population will be only too pleased to point you towards the best pubs, restaurants and clubs that the tourist throngs never usually find. The city has nearly 1,000 years of sometimes bloody history, fine galleries and museums and a relaxed, laid-back nightlife. Your will also find almost all of Scotland’s Michelin starred restaurants in the city and, if you time it right, the atmosphere when Scotland’s rugby team are playing at Murrayfield is electric.

Atmospheric holiday apartments in Edinburgh

If you are keen on finding the real city, you might have considered couchsurfing in Edinburgh. Renting holiday accommodation in Edinburgh direct from the locals with 9flats gives you all of that authentic experience but also offers the privacy and comfort of your own room or apartment. With some advice from the locals, you will get the lowdown on the upmarket shopping available along George Street and tips on which of the many George Street bars are hot right now. You can also explore chic neighbourhoods like Stockbridge to the north of the city centre and Morningside to the south, which are crammed with local pubs and eateries less frequented by tourists.

Individual holiday accommodation in Edinburgh

Renting your holiday apartment in Edinburgh from 9flats lets you choose from real properties in the city, not purpose-built tourist complexes. You could choose a holiday apartment in Oldtown where you will find yourself right in the middle of Edinburgh’s historic world heritage site. Here the Royal Mile runs from the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace in the east all the way up the hill to the castle in the west. All three are open to visitors and on the way you will find more than enough pubs, restaurants and shops to keep you fed, watered and entertained.

Edinburgh old and new

The city centre of Edinburgh is divided into the Old Town and the Georgian New Town. Renting a holiday apartment in Dean is ideal to visit the new town. Dean village is hidden right on the edge of the New Town, in a quiet valley along the Water of Leith. It provides a quiet sanctury from the New Town’s bustle and you can walk down the river to the port of Leith where you will find a buzzy shore area with many bars and restaurants. Dean village is also ideally situated for art lovers, being walking distance from the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Moving on from Edinburgh

Eventually your visit to Edinburgh must come to an end but before you leave Scotland you might want to try a holiday apartment in Glasgow where you will find a different atmosphere altogether. Only 40 miles from Edinburgh, Glasgow is bigger, brasher with a great sense of fun and is Scotland’s centre for fashion shopping and clubbing. Once you leave Scotland, try renting a holiday apartment in Dublin to extend your enjoyment of that Celtic charm.

    The flat was spacious, clean, and comfortable.The location of this flat was excellent, as it was only a block from the train station and tram stop. We had several possibilities for groceries and restaurants within steps of the flat as well. Our group of seven was very comfortable.

    The house which is actually really old, having been built in the 19th century, has been renovated by Lesley who made it a stunning place by perfectly combining modern interior design with the old elements. The central but very quiet position just makes it an amazing place to stay, after having stayed at her place you'll probably really thing about what it would be like moving to place like hers. To all the the guests considering to stay at her house, don't doubt, you will love it!
