21 Hanover Street living room
April 2024: We are now closed. Thanks to all our clients for their business over the last 9 years.

The flat


Just steps from Edinburgh's Princes Street and the National Galleries of Scotland, 21 Hanover is a calm oasis of understated luxury, offering spacious self-catering accommodation and great views.


Overlooking Hanover Street, the generously-proportioned living room has a well stocked library with games, books and guides to the city. There is a TV, DVD player with a small library of films, iPod dock and WiFi for guests to use. Also at the front of the apartment – and with great Castle views – is the bright and welcoming dining kitchen, fully equipped with everything you would need for your stay.

Positioned at the rear of the apartment and away from the hubbub of Hanover Street are the two bedrooms. The large master has a kingsize bed and en-suite bathroom with underfloor heating and large walk-in shower; the twin is adjacent to a second bathroom with walk-in shower. Fine quality linens and towels are provided. 

Unfortunately, since it is on the second floor the apartment is not suitable for wheelchair access or for prams or buggies. Smoking within the premises is not allowed.

This apartment is absolutely stunning. The decor is beautiful and the location is outstanding... the apartment itself is very quiet at night time which is another plus for its central location.



I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone wanting to be close to Princes Street and the restaurants, bars, shopping, sightseeing it offers. The location is ideal but moreover, the apartment is gorgeous.

The flat is exactly as pictured. Very good sized rooms, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The kitchen is well appointed providing all the utensils and appliances needed to cook an elaborate meal or heat up something ready made.

'Edinburgh is to London as poetry is to prose'...


...wrote Charlotte Brontë, and 21 Hanover is perfectly placed to enjoy the major attractions of one of the world's stateliest cities. 

The massive stone fortification of Edinburgh Castle, which dominates the city skyline and can be viewed from 21 Hanover, appears to rise out of Princes Street Gardens, a brief walk away. Turn right as you leave the apartment and the elegant streets and squares of Edinburgh's 'New Town' (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) spread before you. It is this duality, the medieval Old Town's warren of hilly cobblestoned streets and narrow stepped lanes and vennels, and the orderly grid of Georgian-era New Town (the Edinburgh of The Enlightenment, Sir Walter Scott and the 'Athens of the North') that gives the city its unique character. But while vivid remnants of the past are ever present in the city that has served as Scotland's political and cultural capital for nearly a thousand years, Edinburgh is still evolving today, thanks in part to newly vibrant neighbourhoods like Leith, the once-dingy port where city meets the Firth of Forth, which has emerged as an exciting epicurean centre.

So whether you are visiting Edinburgh to enjoy the cultural pleasures of its world-renowned festivals, roar with the Murrayfield crowd at a rugby international or simply marvel at one of Europe's great city skylines, at 21 Hanover you will be at the heart of it.


21 Hanover is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's 'New Town', between Princes Street and Rose Street.


If arriving by train the flat is less than a ten minute walk from Waverley Station. Follow the signs for Waverley Bridge and turn left onto Princes Street; Hanover Street is the second on your right. 

By car, the nearest parking in on George Street (metered). There is covered car parking (24h) at the Omni Centre, 28 Greenside Row, EH1 3AJ.

Regular tram and bus services run from Edinburgh Airport to Princes Street.

There is also a taxi rank opposite the flat.
