Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July 2009 and found the apartment to be great for all our needs. We had 4 adults and 2 children staying and were quite comfortable. The apartment is very nice and clean.

The location would be very difficult to beat!

I noticed that a previous review noted the noise from the bar next door. Yes there was some noise but if you shut the front windows you couldn't hear it at all.

Location, location, location (and a really nice flat) in Edinburgh.

  • 5 of 5

We love Edinburgh and wanted the perfect flat for this stay. I think we found it. We spent ten nights and genuinely hated to leave. The location is unbeatable--in the midst of great shops, restaurants, pubs and an easy walk to Waverley Train station. A block from Princes Street and surrounded by history. Entrance is up a few steps but the flat is all on one very quiet floor, spacious and well-furnished in a great non-fussy style. The large living/dining area overlooks Hanover Street but street noise is not a problem. The bedrooms which are in the back of the flat are very quiet. Huge windows and high ceilings in the living/dining rooms add to the light and airy feel. Great kitchen with all mod cons including an efficient washer/dryer. Beds are comfy and flat is well-heated. Photos and descriptions on the website are accurate. Booking was easy and the owner was wonderful and so helpful. Highly recommend.

Came to Edinburgh for a week for the festival fringe. Could not have hoped for a better base from which to enjoy the city.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was centrally located as we walked to everything. All around us there were restaurants, pubs, and clubs. We didn't eat in once during our stay. The apartment was spacious for the 4 male adults and clean. The amenities were very nice and were as described. I would recommend this place for anyone that likes to walk in a neighborhood and doesn't mind a few minor hills.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a family xmas in this well equipped apartment. Really easy access to shops, restaurants, bars and perfect for boxing day sales.

The apartment was clean, well ordered and the heating was more than adequate.

Would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Excellent Location

  • 3 of 5

The property is the perfect location, right in the heart of the city. The children enjoyed sitting on the window seat watching the world go by. The heating was very effective, so much so we had to turn it off! The shower is great. However the reason I gave the property 3 stars and not 5 was that it was not clean. When you first walked in it all looked fine. But I had to clean the towel rail before we could use it,unblock the dishwasher, and dust all the bedside lamps. The extractor hood was too greasy to touch.

It could have been the perfect place to stay if it had had a good detailed clean before guests arrive.

This however did not detract from the wonderful holiday we had in Edinburgh.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Edinburgh Airport at 8 Miles Nearest Train : Waverley Station at 0.5 Miles

The Hanover Street apartment is located in the very centre of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town and as such one is perfectly placed for visiting many of Edinburgh's attractions. Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile are a 10 minute walk away while the Scottish National Gallery and Portrait Gallery are a 2 minute walk. Edinburgh's fashionable shopping district, George Street is literally on your door step and St Andrew Square, which is where Harvey Nichols is based, is round the corner. This part of the city is crammed with excellent restaurants, bars and pubs and one is only a short walk from theatres, cinemas and concert halls. The city really can cater for all tastes.
