There’s a Spring-like freshness to the interiors in this light, bright aparthotel in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town.

Bustling George Street is lined with high street staples, restaurants and bars and runs parallel to the main shopping drag, Princes Street.

Behind the listed Georgian facade of this hip hideaway there are 72 bijoux apartments with a Scandi vibe; downstairs the café-cum- workspace, with its smattering of wicker chairs and leafy plants, has a palm house feel.

An added bonus is complimentary yoga classes in a nearby wellness studio. It’s ideal for those looking for design on a budget, a bit of independence and a slap-bang-central location.
