Location & Directions

Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity, Edinburgh, Grassmarket, 26 King’s Stables Road, Edinburgh, EH1 2JY



  • From the airport:
  • Edinburgh Airport is the closest airport. The best way to reach us from here is by taxi. The journey takes around 30 minutes, and costs £25-£35. You can also take the tram or the Airlink 100 bus — get off at Shandwick Place, which leaves a 15-20 walk to Wilde.
  • By car:
  • If you’re driving, follow the M8 Eastbound until you get to Edinburgh Hermiston Gate. Then take the A71 to the city centre. Follow this road through the city for around 20 minutes until you get to Grassmarket.
  • By train:
  • If you’re travelling by train, get off at Waverley Station. The aparthotel is just a 10-minute walk from here. Exit on to Market Street. Go right, then left at the roundabout on to Cockburn Street. Take a right. Ahead you’ll see Edinburgh Castle. Go left on to George IV Bridge. On the right you’ll see Victoria Street, which runs down a hill. Follow this street and you’ll soon hit Grassmarket.
  • By bus:
  • The Edinburgh bus station is an approximately 20-minute walk from Wilde. Go towards Princes Street, over The Mount, across High Street and down Victoria Street to Grassmarket. Another option is to hop in a taxi from the station!

Good to know

There's no scheduled clean of your apartment for stays of six nights or less. Washing up liquid, a sponge, disposable cloth, tea towels, dustpan and brush, bin bags, and bathroom bag sacks are provided in your apartment. Mops and floor brushes (if not already in your apartment) are available upon request. For an additional cost, we can arrange fresh bed linen, towels and cleaning supplies to be safely delivered to your door.

For Stays of 4-6 nights, housekeeping will carry out a light refresh to your apartment on the 3rd day of your stay. For stays of 7 nights or more a full cleaning service is included on the 4th day of your stay, which includes a change of bed linen, towels and a general sprucing up of the apartment. This cleaning will also occur every 7 days thereafter.

Yes. We are superbly located. Grassmarket lies in the centre of Edinburgh's historic old town, and is one of the city's liveliest and most picturesque areas. Better yet, our prime position at the foot of Edinburgh Castle — which is not just the most popular tourist attraction in Scotland, but one of the most iconic historic sites in Western Europe — affords incredible views of this breath-taking monument. We’re also located within walking distance of the likes of The Real Mary King’s Close, the National Museum of Scotland, the Scott Monument and the Scotch Whisky Experience. Furthermore, you’re in easy reach of the city’s best places to shop, eat, drink and dance, including the famous Royal Mile with its many pubs and restaurants, as well as Edinburgh’s chief business districts and transport links.
