We are from South Africa where spacious accommodation does not come at the premium we have seen on our travels in Europe and UK. One often finds pictures of accommodation are shot in such a way as to make the place seem larger than is the case. I was expecting to find a smaller place but when we walked in I have to confirm this apartment is the largest place I have ever stayed at outside of SA and USA. There were 6 adults and 1 toddler who stayed here for Christmas 2017. At no stage did we ever feel squashed.
The apartment is also bright with many windows and offers you a choice of bath or separate shower (with decent water pressure). Both bathrooms looked new. The apartment is spotless and well maintained. Check out the list of amenities. This apartment has literally everything you could wish for, including a decorated Christmas tree which I thought was a nice touch.
The big, roomy kitchen was perfect for preparing our Christmas Lunch, even if there were 6 chefs busy there was still plenty of room.
The area in which the apartment is situated is clearly in a good, quiet, safe suburb with a shop just around the corner. Just about everything is in walking distance including the airport tram and local bus routes. Because of us being 4 + individuals Uber also made economic sense. One of the main streets is also literally just up the stairs and around the corner.
Edele was regularly in touch with us to ensure all was going well.
There is absolutely nothing I can offer as a criticism or suggest as an improvement to Edele's Hopetoun apartment.
Thanks for a wonderful holiday in Edinburgh Edele!
Guys and girls! Give this apartment a try, you definitely wont regret it.
