Situated on a distinguished main road off Princes Street and right next to the landmark Usher Hall with its adjoining Lyceum and Traverse theatres, this immaculate property is nevertheless very quiet owing to its secondary glazing. The Filmhouse Cinema is another esteemed institution visible from the apartment’s windows, while the Cameo is at the next junction. While Princes Street is but a minute’s walk away, Lothian Road has its own selection of specialist shops, as well as restaurants and a Co-operative supermarket. A taxi rank and hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing tour stop are located just outside the property; due to our partnership with Lothian Buses, we are able to offer guests a five percent discount on their tours and the Airlink bus service (between the airport and city centre) if you pre-book tickets here.

The apartment is on the first floor of a communal stairwell with classy wooden cabin-esque walls. The property itself features wooden flooring throughout, with the exception of the shower room on the immediate left which bears cream tiling beside the wet area. The beautifully minimalist décor and fresh neutral palette of white, slate and cream tones adorns the modern wet facilities, countertop and walls respectively. This is complemented by chrome fittings, including the added convenience of heated towel rails.

The master bedroom off the corner has windows looking out to the street and a 32-inch HD smart TV on a unit at the foot of the King-sized bed. Both this and the neighbouring double bedroom have ample storage in their fitted double wardrobes with mirrored sliding doors. The master’s contains an iron and a safe large enough for a laptop, while the second bedroom’s contains a clothes horse. Both rooms also have hair dryers.

The kitchen-cum-living area is the apartment’s largest space, with the snow-white units encapsulating a fridge-freezer, washing machine and dishwasher, paired with state-of-the-art cooking appliances such as the induction hob and raised microwave-oven. Beside this is a matching dining table seating four, set out from the sides of the room furnished with a leather sofa and opposing wingback armchairs. The windows on the two far sides look across and down the street, while the nearmost corner contains another HD smart TV (40-inch) atop a cabinet housing the router, a DVD player, and a selection of home décor magazines. The room’s twin centrepieces – a mounted patchwork bull head bust and a rocky halo on the windowsill – confer a sense of balance to the space, while the former also adds an iconic Scottish touch in its use of our national textile, tartan.

Lothian Road is at the boundary between the Old Town, the New Town, and the West End, and so presents a rare opportunity to enjoy all of Edinburgh’s central areas with the minimum of effort. Added to this is the host street’s own recreational offering and the retail haven of Princes Street immediately beyond, which together with this premium property makes for a showcase of Edinburgh at its very best.

    Our family of four adults enjoyed our stay in this apartment in September of 2019. We let them arrange transportation from the airport which was great once we found where they were to pick us up at the airport. I’m embarrassed to say we wandered around for 45 minutes like lost little sheep. Pick up the morning we flew out went perfectly.

    When we arrived there was a greatbase representative there to greet us, give us the keys & show us around. On the floor above a restaurant, the apartment was very well appointed & quiet. One of the wing chairs needs to be replaced but everything else was great! We were only walking while in Edinburgh so the location was perfect. There was a grocery store within a few blocks as well as Edinburgh Castle, princes street gardens, royal mile shopping, and it was a 20 minute walk to our Rabbies tour pick up location. We felt safe & comfortable and enjoyed a concert at Usher hall which is right next door. Thanks!

      Dear Michelle,

      Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our Usher Hall Views apartment. We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t have the directions to the taxi transfer company’s office to hand and struggled to find it. We send our guests directions to avoid this eventuality but we’re pleased that your pickup went smoothly.

      We’re glad you appreciated the apartment’s high standard of fittings and its effective noise insulation. We’ve passed your feedback on one of the wingback chairs to the owners who have earmarked it for replacement as a result. As you have noted, the location is ideal for access to amenities and attractions and you’d be very welcome to return and stay with us again in future.

      Kind regards,

      Greatbase Apartments Ltd

    Stayed at this flat with my family for the week while attending a conference at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. The flat is beautifully outfitted, spacious, and modern. Katie provided everything we needed and is a wonderful host. The location is perfect for attending the conference, near good restaurants, and it is a very convenient location for exploring the rest of the city. We look forward to staying here again the next time we are in town.
