Overview

About the property

Only 5 minutes walk to Princes Street with view of the castle.

Hopetoun Suite is named after the Hopetoun Basin, originally the end of the Union Canal. The basin was drained in 1922 and in 1935 Lothian House was built on the site as offices for the Inland Revenue. It was converted into apartments in 1985.

Completely refurbished in 2015 in the Art Deco style to match the Grade B listed Lothian House, the apartment consists of: A double bedroom with King size bed, large built in wardrobe and smart TV; A bathroom with an electric shower over the bath; A lounge with a double sofa bed and further seating for another 2 people, a TV with smart Blu-Ray player, Bluetooth hi-fi and wireless internet access. The dining area has plenty of space for 4 to eat in comfort whilst the fully equipped kitchen has a halogen hob, electric fan oven, microwave oven, fridge with ice-compartment, dishwasher, coffee machine, kettle and toaster. There is also a washer-dryer located in the walk-in cupboard off the hall.

Following feedback from guests we have added noise-reducing secondary glazing to the bedroom window.

Hopetoun Suite is in a quiet residential building and, as such, it is not suitable for stag/hen parties or similar groups. Check-in is from 5pm Monday - Friday and from 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Check-out is by 10am. Other times may be available on request.

About Kirsty & Peter Kingsbury

Kirsty was born in Edinburgh and has lived in the city all her life. Peter grew up in the Peak District and then lived in York, England before 'migrating' north of the border to Edinburgh. Our amazing and unique city has so much to offer everyone and we would love you to come and discover what it has to offer you too.

Why Kirsty & Peter Kingsbury chose Edinburgh and Lothians

The apartment is situated in a unique building from the Art Deco era of the 1930s. Lovingly restored in the Art Deco style to match the origins of the building, the apartment offers a warm Scottish welcome in a homely environment, ideally located to explore Edinburgh. Princes Street is only a 5 minute walk away and the apartment is on the doorstep to all sights and venues in the city centre. The property is also on main bus routes (bus stops outside the front door) and a very short walk to trams and trains, helping you explore the city and beyond. The locality within the city is perfect with the proximity to local amenities and events outstanding. <br /><br />

What makes this apartment unique

Lothian House boasts an entrance from the street which will bring you back to the 1930s - the element which inspired us to reflect the era in our own apartment. The apartment itself has a homely feel with the log fire (electric) and hearth giving a warm heart to the property. The very large windows pull in a wonderful brightness from outside and act as a stage for a view to the castle you will benefit from every day, but especially the nights of the fireworks during the Festivals in summer and Hogmanay (New Year's Eve). The well stocked, smart looking kitchen has everything you need for your stay and the bedroom offers luxury every visitor deserves. All in all, the apartment can't fail to impress with something to offer couples, tourists, city breaks, business trips and more.

First rate location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

The owners have gone out of their way to anticipate and provide everything one might need. There is coffee and milk. There is a washer/dryer that was great to have, and so much more. The apartment was comfortable, more than adequate, and a rental we would wholeheartedly recommend and would book again.

Lovely flat near Edinburgh city center

  • 5 of 5

This very tastefully decorated and accommodating flat was perfect for the two of us for our visit to Edinburgh. The hosts were charming, the flat was immaculate and it was close to grocery shopping, Grassmarket restaurants, and within walking distance of Haymarket and Waverley Stations , the bus link to the airport as well as all the major tourist attractions. We did not rent a car so the convenient location was perfect for us. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would stay there again any time!

Lovely apartment!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable, exactly as advertised. All the usual amenities were available, it was located very conveniently. Peter was right on time and hospitable. The apartment is located on a busy road, but soundproofing diminished the noise in the bedroom. Internet can be a bit slow if you need to work during the evenings, and due to the noise the windows need to be closed during the night; which precludes ventilation.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

What a real treat; I have stayed at many apartments but this one was the best. It was cozy and comfortable. Some would call me a germ-phobic; this apartment was immaculate. The owner was also wonderful. We arrived early and he left his work to accommodate us. I would definitely stay there again! Clean, Clean, Clean, and plenty of supplies!
