Overview

Photos and Description of this Edinburgh holiday apartment

2 bedroom apartment sleeping 4

Hopetoun Crescent is an excellent location just to the east of the New Town. It is about a 10 minute walk to Princes Street and Waverley Station and less than a 10 minute walk from the tram stop at York Place so access to the airport is very easy. In the immediate vicinity are a host of restaurants and bars thanks to the proximity of the Playhouse Theatre. There is also the renowned Italian deli, Valvona and Crolla on Elm Row, just a 5 minute walk away.

The property is on the second floor of a modern apartment building has the bonus of parking on site. The accommodation is well laid out with a good sized sitting room with large TV and DVD player and there is a dining table sitting 6 people. The kitchen has a small dining table and is equipped with a washing machine. The bathroom includes an electric shower. There are 2 bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Good base for exploring

  • 4 of 5

Stayed with my wife and two young daughters; last minute booking as previous place had cancelled. Fulfilled all our self catering needs comfortably, and in a decent location. Only real downside was the several flights of stairs, but at least it's good exercise! (Be warned the hot water is the temperature of the sun, and the cistern takes 10 minutes to fill after flushing too...)

Very good accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

Spotlessly clean - very confortable accommodation.

Just a suggestion. Perhaps more drawer space in bedrooms is required - ie small chest of drawers would have been helpful, - I did have to live out of my suitcase for tshirts, jumpers etc., and also (from a feminine point of view) a hairdryer. I did bring my own anyway.

Despite the long trek up the stairs - (think we got a bit fitter during our stay!) - I would happily book this property again and recommend it to friends. Our younger son and daugher in law who stayed with us were also impressed with the property.

Very convenient - in walking distance of Edinburgh - as stated in in description.

Have no comments on Edinburgh itself as our elder son lives inearby, and we are reasonably familiar with the area and visited the various attractions in the past. This visit was purely a family event so we spent most of our time with him and his family and needed accommodation nearby.

Nice property in central Edinburgh

  • 4 of 5

This property was in a great location with very good car parking facilities. The furnishings within the sitting room could have been better but the beds were very comfortable.

Edinburgh flat

  • 4 of 5

Clean, bright, warm in a great location. Parking spot a major bonus. Furnishings not the most comfortable and basic. Otherwise great.

Apartment in Edinburgh

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is well located, just 20 minutes away from the city center.

It was the first time that we did not meet the person responsible for the apartment (François) and we missed on our arrival some guidance on how to move around the area. Even to collect the apartment key we had to make a kind of a "treasure hunt" via phone around the building in order to identify the key box located on the back of the building...

Unfortunately we had to wash all the kitchen ware because they were not well cleaned.

A positive thing was the fact that François allowed us to leave a bit later on our last day, once our flight was in the middle of the day.

Una buena opción

  • 4 of 5

El apartamento está muy bien situado para conocer Edimburgo. El mobiliario está bien y en la cocina no falta de nada. Además, hay numerosos mapas e indicaciones para poder disfrutar de la ciudad y todo esta muy limpio. La única pega es la cisterna del baño, cada vez que tiras tarda en llenarse unos 10 minutos, y con un ruido de agua cayendo que no cesa en ese tiempo. Por todo lo demás, muy recomendable!!
