The Hotel is situated very close to the city centre and at the feet of Carlton Hill that it's an immense bonus, Jasmine is a wonderful person, always smiling and ready to help you in every situation, the food excellent and the room was very clean and confortable.

Conveniently situated for the Fringe (it's about 10-20 minutes from the most venues) and comfortable enough for a short stay. Jasmine is very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is good (the haggis is especially fine) and at £100 a night for a double room I think it's good value for Edinburgh in August. The wi-fi can be a bit flaky (but... More

Absolutely fine for what was needed. Welcoming host and cooked breakfast. Definitely more of a guest house than a hotel and is in need of a refurb. Very close to city centre and with parking too. Beautiful outside- but we felt it was quite a lot of money for what it was- but it is August in Edinburgh!

A big thanks to Jasmin for being such a gracious host during our stay for 4 nights, June 12 to June 16th. 2015. My granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed those great breakfasts each morning. For helping us with directions and good advise that you supplied. Will certainly tell anyone we know that is going to Edinburgh, to get in touch... More

We stayed 2 nights, and this hotel is located right in the centre of Edinburgh but not close enough to be bothered by noise. The hotel is a typical Georgian Terraced house with a very grand entrance hall. The room was quite small but didn't feel cramped. The hotel is probably in need of some attention but I think it...

Can't remember how I found this place on Laterooms probably a combination of location and price. Edinburgh is expensive in general and I think that for £90 a night in most other towns in the UK you would get substantially better than this. The location is good for Princes street and Calton Hill but does involve walking up hill to... More

We stayed at Hanover House Hotel over New Years. Our room was great and was a good size. We had a cooked breakfast every morning which set us up for the day. The location was perfect, it was in walking distance to the centre of edinburgh and this made our trip very easy and stress free. Jasmin was also friendly... More

This is not a hotel but a guest house/bed and breakfast. The location is fine but this alone does not justify the cost. In December we found our accommodation to be very cold and on check out were not permitted to leave our luggage to be picked up later!

This is not a hotel but a guest house/ B&B with limited resources. Although clean the whole place is badly in need of painting and maintenance. We were greeted on arrival by a person whose English was limited and hard to understand. The "en suite" was a corner taken off the room with Saniflo plumbing, which made quite a din... More
