Built on the original site of The Royal Botanical Gardens, the Penthouse is situated in a location ideally placed for all ages, with most of the tourist attractions being within walking distance. You can get a car right to the apartment block entrance door and within the build there are two small flights of gentle sweeping wide stairs with a good banister. Each with probably around 12 steps.
It is in a very safe part of the city for walking at any time of the night or day and has a grass area for children to play and a playground 1 minute walk away.
There are numerous cafes, restaurants, bars and other attractions expected in such a central location. These include the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre (which is only a 5 minute walk from The Penthouse) and the Omni multi-screen cinema situated next door to the Theatre.
