About the property

3 double bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with castle views

As they say, it’s all about location, location, location – and it doesn’t get much better than this! Our Hanover Hideaway self catering apartment is on the second floor of a handsome Georgian building on Hanover Street, in Edinburgh’s New Town, just off Princes Street – the city’s spectacular and trademark shopping strip.

Its stylish interior has been designed by an award winning interior designer. This three bedroom luxury apartment is elegant, exceptionally spacious and is flooded with natural light. The Castle views from the apartment and the knowledge that you are right in the heart of the city with cultural attractions, trendy bars, restaurants and shopping galore right on your doorstep will surely tempt you out each day – but safe in the knowledge that you will be returning to a stylish retreat in the heart of the city.

ou won’t be lugging your suitcase for long if you are arriving in Edinburgh by tram, bus or train, as the beautiful Hanover Hideaway is right in the heart of the city in Hanover Street, just off Princes Street.

After entering through the impressive front door of this elegant Georgian residence, you will find a contemporary apartment flooded with natural light and comfortable, stylish furnishings. With three double bedrooms (2 with double beds and 1 with two single beds) and two bathrooms, as well as spacious living/dining areas, it is particularly suited to families or groups of friends looking for space to socialise whilst still affording privacy to every guest.

To complement its Georgian heritage, the interiors are stylish and well proportioned, with all the comfort of home.

The living/dining room, the décor of which has a contemporary Scottish twist, is the perfect place for sociable and relaxed evenings, with its comfortable seating and spacious dining area. You will find everything provided for cosy nights in, including digital TV; a DVD player with a selection of DVDs; a feature fire; a music docking station; free wifi; and some board games for when you just want to cocoon yourself in for the evening after an exhausting day of exploring the city’s many attractions.

And we’ve not forgotten the importance of winding down for a good night’s sleep. We provide plentiful fluffy white bath towels; well fitted bathrooms with luxury toiletries; and comfortable beds with the best of Egyptian cotton bed linen – all giving you a feeling of a boutique hotel suite.

But the Hanover Hideaway apartment also gives you the added benefit of independence and flexibility. The contemporary, fully fitted and large kitchen is well equipped, including a dishwasher, washing machine and everything you need if you opt to prepare a meal in for the evening. Tea, coffee and delicious locally made shortbread are all provided.

About Melanie

I'm a 34 year old woman with two young children. I Live in Edinburgh and so am available for questions etc and more than happy to answer any questions or help in any way I can. I stay about 10 min walk away from the apartment

Melanie purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Melanie chose New Town

In terms of location, this property couldn't have a better position in the city centre. It is more central than any of the hotels! Despite that, due to the fact it is on the third floor, it means that you don't hear the noise from the street below and can enjoy a peaceful nights sleep. it is immaculately presented and I am sure you won't find a better apartment in the city!

Terrific and central!

  • 5 of 5

Melanie's flat is fabulous. The location is only a block or so off Princes Street, a half block from Rose Street. The living room, and the three bedrooms were roomy and nicely appointed, as was the kitchen with plenty of dishes, silverware, W/D, dishwasher. For anyone with physical disabilities be forewarned about the many stairs. But once you get into this wonderful flat, it will be worth it. We walked everywhere from it; only took taxis a few times. Edinburgh is a wonderful walking city. I would stay in this flat again! Thank you, Melanie!

BEAUTIFUL view of the Edinburgh Castle!!

  • 5 of 5

Even the taxi driver was impressed with the location. You simply can not get closer to the castle and all the shops and restaurants. Absolutely fabulous! The steps up to the apartment we're a bit overwhelming for carrying up Al the luggage, but we'll worth it in the end. The apartment was very stylish and had a beautiful kitchen and living room. We will definitely come back!!

Book this place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful flat! Location, size, comfortable, clean, you get it all here! Six people in our party, all doing different things, the location is near Waverly Station, and also where you pick up the Hop On Hop Off bus tours. When we arrived late at night, we were very hungry, and did not have to go far.... Italian restaurant next door. If shopping is your thing, here you go. The flat is comfortable and clean. Kudos to the housekeeper.

The linen are also very nice. Ahh!

The only drawback is out of the owners control, but entertaining anyway!

The pubcrawlers that leave the bar between 12:30am - 3:30am are noisy.

They sing loud and do stupid things. I watched for half hour and laughed the entire time.

Beautiful getaway in the heart of New Town

  • 5 of 5

My family, 4 of us, and I stayed for 4 nights in this wonderful and beautiful getaway in the heart of New Town. While it was in New Town we were still only a short walk from Old Town and the Waverly train station.

The apartment had everything we needed as a homeaway from our own. We will definitely stay here again next time we come to Edinburgh.

Try dining at Howies on Victoria, great local food and Cafe Adulz on North Bridge, delicious Spanish tapas with an amazing view of the castle while you dine (in the back room).

Thanks Melanie for taking such great care of us.
