Are you looking for a luxury stay in Edinburgh? Does the idea of staying at one of the city’s most luxurious accommodations appeal to you? Then look no further than Airbnb.

This guide has everything from a penthouse suite in New Town to an elegant Georgian home, all with incredible views of beautiful Edinburgh and its surrounding countryside.

Table of Contents

1. Old Town Loft

The Old Town Loft is a beautiful, modern apartment located in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. It's just steps from Princes Street, which means you can easily walk to all the main attractions. The unit has been decorated with care and comfort in mind; it comes with plenty of amenities like towels and bedding, as well as a full kitchen for cooking your own meals (or reheating takeout). There are three bedrooms in total--two doubles and one single--and each room has its own ensuite bathroom so you won't have to share any space with other guests (unless you want to!).

The reviews say this place is great value for money; they also note how much they liked being able to walk everywhere from their front door without needing public transit or taxis!

2. New Town Penthouse

This is a gorgeous apartment in the New Town area of Edinburgh, which is right next to Princes Street. The building itself has some history, as it was built in 1826 and was originally used as a bakery. It's now been converted into luxury apartments that have all of the amenities you could want from home, including WiFi, cable TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video access (included in your rental), air conditioning and heating throughout your stay if necessary--and even laundry facilities!

The kitchen features an electric oven/cooktop combination with four burners on one side and three hotplates on another; there's also an integrated microwave oven for those times when you need something quick but nutritious--or just want something warm! There's plenty of counter space here so cooking isn't difficult at all; just make sure not to burn anything down like I did once when trying out some new recipes...but don't worry: cleaning up after myself has never been one of my strong suits either so we're both good at cleaning up messes :)

3. Elegant Georgian House

If you're looking for a luxurious rental that's close to all of the action, look no further. This elegant Georgian house features four bedrooms and five bathrooms, as well as a large kitchen and lounge area. The location is ideal--it's just a short walk from Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat Park.

The property also boasts plenty of amenities: free WiFi, TV with cable channels (including HBO), dishwasher and washing machine on-site as well as access to washer/dryer facilities at the building next door--all included in your stay!

4. Modern Retro Duplex

The Modern Retro Duplex is a pristinely-designed apartment in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town. The building was built in 1845, but the interior design is thoroughly modern and chic.

The location couldn't be better--just steps away from Princes Street, this rental puts you right in the middle of all the action! You can walk to restaurants, shops and attractions like Edinburgh Castle or Princes Street Gardens without even needing public transportation (though there are buses nearby if you prefer).

5. Cozy Studio Apartment with Private Garden

The location of this cozy studio apartment is ideal for those who want to be close to everything. It's just a short walk from Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street and the Royal Mile. The amenities include:

  • Private garden with seating area
  • WiFi access
  • Access to washer/dryer

The Penthouse is a luxury 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment located in the heart of Edinburgh. This large 3 floor apartment is only a few minutes walk from Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle and Grassmarket. It boasts 360 degree views over Edinburgh's historic skyline, as well as being close to all major attractions such as Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace. 

The penthouse has been designed to offer guests an unforgettable stay with its many facilities including free WiFi throughout the property, parking space for one car (additional cost applies), laundry room on site (additional cost applies), fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher/washing machine etc., private balcony with seating area overlooking city center & Scottish hills beyond; cozy lounge area with TV/DVD player plus games console available upon request; master bedroom has king size bed while second bedroom also offers double bed plus ensuite shower room; additional single sofa bed can be provided if required - please contact host prior to arrival so they can prepare accordingly!

7. The Manor House

8. The Old Vicarage

The Old Vicarage is located in the heart of Edinburgh, just a few minutes' walk from Princes Street. It offers spacious rooms with a luxurious bathroom and private entrance, as well as access to communal spaces such as an outdoor terrace, lounge areas and gardens.

If you're looking for luxury accommodation in Edinburgh that's close to all the best attractions but far enough away from the crowds (and noise!), this is an excellent choice. The Old Vicarage has been renovated with top-of-the-line fittings: high ceilings; plush rugs; stylish furniture pieces like sofas made from reclaimed wood - everything you need to feel right at home!

9. The Abbotsford Lodge

The Abbotsford Lodge is a luxury rental in the heart of Edinburgh, offering guests a unique opportunity to experience both city life and Scottish countryside. This beautiful home sits on a hill overlooking Holyrood Park and Arthur's Seat, making it one of the best places in Edinburgh from which to take in stunning views of this stunning city.

Located just over two miles from Edinburgh Castle, The Abbotsford Lodge offers guests an unforgettable experience during their stay in Scotland's capital city.
