Flat screen TV with DVD player The dining table is in the sitting room and it overlooks the courtyard. A modern kitchen leads from the sitting room with fridge, electric hob and oven and washing machine.
The Grass Market is the main approach from the West to the Old Town, the Grassmarket is still very well conserved with many historic buildings, and an open, cobbled market square, which allows pubs and restaurants to spill out onto the pavement. There are also a number of small retailers in the area.
Some of Edinburgh's tallest buildings are in the Grassmarket, with some having eight or nine stories, each story of around 9 or 10 feet (luckily we are on 2nd floor!). The area's historic role as a marketplace continues to some extent with public fairs, market stalls, craft fairs, and festival events, such as at Hogmanay and the Edinburgh Jazz Festival mardi gras in July. A paradise of independent merchants, designers and artisans, the area is simply bursting with some of the best shopping Edinburgh has to offer. Far more than simply a retail haven, the area is well known for being home to some of the best restaurants in Edinburgh as well as some of the most vibrant and eclectic bars in Edinburgh. In fact the pubs, many with a history dating back to the notorious days of Burke and Hare, are known throughout the world for their exciting, dark Edinburgh history mixed with some of the best traditional food, ales and music in the city! The area's dramatic and intriguing history, well preserved cobbled streets, medieval architecture and inspiring views of Edinburgh Castle help to create an atmosphere unparalleled in Edinburgh. With so much to see and do it's easy to see why a visit to Edinburgh wouldn't be complete without shopping, dining, exploring and staying in this area! A great choice for a couple looking for a romantic break in Edinburgh
