A beautiful central apartment with period features sleeping 5 people
- english, french
I have been involved with letting out our holiday flat since 1998 when self-catering holiday homes were in their infancy in the city. When I was a student I would do the cleaning to earn me some pocket money, thankfully I don't have to do that anymore!
Francois purchased this Apartment in 1996
Why Francois chose New Town
My family bought this property when it was just an unloved office and my parents converted back into a residential home so it has been in our family for over 20 years and we have been operating it as a holiday/vacation let for nearly all that time.

Location, location, location!!
We were warmly greeted by our host, Francois, who also kindly hefted two large suitcases up the stairs to the apartment on the second floor. Rooms were as pictured and well appointed. Beds comfortable and a great shower, always good!
Hanover Street where the apartment is located is right in the heart of New Town and easy walking to Princes Street and all the shops. Plenty of restaurants within a block of the apartment.
A couple of things; 1) Living room sofas were a bit soiled; 2) We were at the apartment 3 nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Directly next to the apartment on the ground floor is a very happening restaurant/bar. Extremely noisy on Friday and Saturday nights, until 3:00 a.m. People were smoking on the steps of the apartment and leaving their butts. Very distasteful to walk on the next morning, especially after rain, gross! Bedrooms in the back of the apartment, so less noisy there. Will remember this for next time and book at the beginning of the week:)
All in all, a good experience
Wonderfully Located and Charming Flat
My friend and I stayed in Edinburgh for a week, and this property was perfect. Located in the heart of New Town and right in the main bus lines into Old Town. Would highly recommend.
Location location location
Short walk to all amenities. Fun visit in Edinburgh, great city, loved it. The apartment was fine, check in was excellent, but very noisy from street and furniture and beds need updating. Towel was left on the bedroom hook from the last guests. Kitchen was well supplied. The Italian restauant wad outstanding! Thank You.
Great city centre location and very comfortable apartment
We loved the large lounge/dining room with the big windows,high ceilings and coving.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable and the New Town has so many bars and restaurants you are spoiled for choice.
I would certainly recommend staying here.
Having a key to the Queen Street Gardens was great.
Easy to find in the heart of Edinburgh. Good host ensured keys and car drop off went as easy as planned. Communication between host was prompt and courteous.
The flat was spacious and central and met all our requirements. I would stay again .
Beautiful, stately apartment!
Looks just like pictures and host is very accommodating. Great location, within walking distance of old town and everywhere else. Lots of restaurants and shopping in the neighborhood.
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.
