The Grassmarket was once Edinburgh’s main marketplace, and now it’s one of the city’s most vibrant areas. There’s a large selection of cafés and bars and a great Saturday market selling a range of tasty street food and arts and crafts. Minutes away from Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, Victoria Street is just round the corner featuring some of Edinburgh’s most interesting independent shops and eateries. Waverley train station and Princes Street are also just a short walk away.

Our apartment is quietly located on the ground floor of a small apartment block with its own private entrance. Heriot Bridge is a quiet street; you’ll get a good night’s sleep even though you’re in the bustling heart of the Old Town.

The spacious, cosy interior is beautifully furnished and decorated in our individual style with a mix of new, vintage and up-cycled pieces. Expect all the comforts of a boutique hotel, with plenty of space to relax and plan your next Edinburgh adventure.

The living room has a comfy three-seater sofa, vintage G Plan wingback chair, dining table, HD TV, Bluray player, stereo, and WIFI. The bright kitchen is well-stocked with complimentary breakfast cereals, milk, tea and good coffee and you’ll find all the kit you need if you want to cook. The luxurious bedroom has a comfortable double bed with crisp, white Egyptian cotton sheets and lots of storage space. The bathroom has a bath and shower and we provide a full range of toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand wash and body lotion) so you can travel light. Each guest gets a set of fluffy white towels.

Amazing Stay

Dee made our stay so easy here. The location to start with is amazing, so close to everything you could possibly want to see in Edinburgh. The flat was clean and well looked after and they provided a pack of local info and some homemade shortbread!! They catered really well for our toddler too. With covid we didn't get to try a lot of the recommendations but the ones we did try were brilliant. Communication was always great and clear. Check in and check out was really simple. I'd definitely come back if we were to stay in Edinburgh again.

Perfect place to stay in Edinburgh

Perfect place to stay in Edinburgh. The apartment is beautifully decorated with plenty of thoughtful, welcoming touches ( such as delicious homemade shortbread and Prosecco). The location is incredible - very near all the sights in the Old Town. The hosts were super helpful and communicative, and gave excellent recommendations. We hope to come back soon!

Lovely Apartment

It was a pleasure to stay at Dunc & Dee apartment! Very cozy for a couple and perfectly located in the Grassmarket, a stone's throw from the Royal Mile and a short (although somewhat hilly) walk from the railway station. The tips about the city were very helpful and we loved the Edinburgh map in the kitchen! The place was spotless and communication with Dee was always very clear. The self check-in worked smoothly. We will definitely return to this apartment when we visit Edinburgh again!

This was an excellent location! Close to pubs/breakfast spots, and central to the many activities we did around the entire city. Yet it was tucked away so it was quiet at night. The place was clean, absolutely comfortable bed/sheets/blanket. Dee was so welcoming with her homemade shortbread and a bottle of Prosecco to greet us (how’d they know our favorite?!) Dee was also helpful with check-in process and helping us with travel arrangements (early morning taxi recommendation). AND a huge thank you to Dee and the cleaner for accommodating my early check-in!!!! That was so helpful after traveling 10+ hours. I would highly recommend this host and location to others. Kathryn

Amazing Location

We could not recommend this apartment more. Everything about the interior was fabulous, very spacious and comfortable. It is also in a perfect location with lots of greats place to eat and drink on the doorstep as well as being so central to the Royal Mile and the Castle. We also received a lot of information from the hosts of good places to visit which was such a nice touch! Would definitely stay here again, thank you!

Perfect stay. The apartment is beautiful and in a great location. Great bars, restaurants and a supurb off licence on the door step. Big comfortable bed and a quiet night's sleep. Hosts are excellent - we really appreciated the little extras. Looking forward to staying again on our next visit.

We are a fun-loving and sociable couple from Edinburgh with two young children. We love our amazing city. One of the best things about Edinburgh is the fact you can walk almost anywhere, and our apartment is ideally located in the heart of the Old Town. We are huge music fans so can point you in the direction of great music venues, pubs and clubs, many of which are a short walk from our apartment. We also love food (Daniela is a chef & Dunc is obsessed with good coffee) so we can recommend the best coffee shops, cafes, restaurants and food markets. Having traveled extensively ourselves (before the little people came along!) we know what makes a great holiday base. We look forward to providing a warm and friendly welcome!
