Overview

About the property

'Hopetoun Grande' is a bright, spacious and fully refurbished three bedroom apartment with great big Georgian windows and high ceilings right in the centre of town. Within walking distance to the Playhouse theatre, high street, Botanical Gardens, train station and tram.

An elegant apartment with a vast area of 180 sq.m/2000 sq. ft. situated on the third floor of a beautiful Georgian building located in the heart of Edinburgh City. Completely refurbished in 2015, this large penthouse offers 5-star self-catering accommodation in one of Europe's most visited cities. All the common areas and rooms are generously proportioned with large windows that bring in a lot of light giving a sense of space and brightness all around.

Two of the three bedrooms have superking-size beds and the third bedroom is a special handmade four poster king-size bed. The bathrooms have been done in Italian Marble with heated floors, granite worktops and provide a feeling of real luxury to the senses. The larger bathroom has a jacuzzi bath and a walk-in shower and the smaller bathroom has a power shower within an enclosure with a skylight. The quality of toiletries, bedlinen and towels match that of any five star hotel.

The kitchen is large with earthy wooden kitchen cabinets and granite work surfaces and state of the art fridge, freezer, gas hob, grill, oven, inbuilt dishwasher and washing machine and microwave. It is a pleasure to spend time in the kitchen either to cook or to gaze out of the window at the twinkling lights of Fife across the sea at night.

The beautiful dining-drawing room with its large windows yet private space is a wonderful place to relax, chat and have a meal. Whilst the dining table seats 8, there is also a cosy seat of 4 at a round Mahogany table in the hall/reception room.

At this apartment you will find yourself in a place full of character, surrounded with period charm yet decorated tastefully in modern style.

By choosing our penthouse you are choosing five-star self-catering accommodation in an excellent location that is close to tourist attractions, great shopping, restaurants and theatre. Its a great place to enjoy a holiday with family or friends alike and will undoubtedly add to your experience of this incredible city.

Please note that check in time is from 3pm and checkout time is 11am.

beautiful Edwardian

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place at the edge of new town within walking distance to everything you would want to see in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. The owners were easy to work with and the place is beautifully restored, with added modern conveniences that blend perfectly with the building. You need to take note of the fact that there are no lifts and the stairs could be challenging to older folks or those with chronic heart or lung problems. Totally worth it for the charm and beauty of the place. It is located close to grocery store, theater and wonderful food places as well. There were three couples that stayed for three nights and thoroughly loved it. Plenty of space to spread out.

Great apartment in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six staying during the Fringe Festival. The apartment was spacious, clean and well equiped. Within walking distance to the Royal Mile, but no festival crowds near the apartment. The neighborhood felt very safe and had many restaurants.

Thank you Charul and Martin for making our stay at the apartment so pleasant!

Apartment was centrally located in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed this apartment. The owners were very accommodating and helpful with instructions and directions to the flat. I knew we picked a good apartment when the taxi driver said, "At least you're right in the middle of everything."

The apartment was great because it had that Georgian architecture feel to it but also included all the modern amenities. The location was amazing, we were a short walk from Waverley Station and the Scott Monument. From there all major attractions were a short walk or taxi ride. I recommend walking to really catch the flavor of old Edinburgh...Beautiful city!

The apartment was also warm which was important for those chilly Edinburgh nights. The neighborhood was quiet and safe too. Also there was plenty of good places to eat or just get a coffee, tea, or drink.

Great place to stay!

Great place to stay. Lots of room. Owners are helpful and accommodating. Stairs give you a good workout but location is worth it.
