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

A bit of a mixed review for this stay. We payed quite a large sum of money for our room and honestly did not feel that it valued up to the amount that we payed. Ok welcoming in, but on first impressions it felt as though we were staying at a B+B and not a hotel. Sort of felt like... More

Great place, traditional new town house with original features. Friendly but unobtrusive hosts, good breakfast selection - hosted an early breakfast for us, as we wanted to get away early. Some of the decor was a bit tired but that's reflected in the value price! Would stay again. Thanks.

We had a really nice 4 night stay at the Hanover House Hotel during our visit in mid August 2014 for the Fringe. Jasmin is a lovely, helpful host who cooks a lovely breakfast. Our room (no. 2) was good, not massive, but big enough for us two, the bathroom was particularly small, shower only which wasn't great for my... More

We stayed for two nights in August to attend The Fringe. Hanover House is in a great location for getting around Edinburgh as it is very close to several bus routes and actually within walking distance of Waverley Station on Princes Street if you don't have heavy luggage. Jasmin was very welcoming and helpful getting our cases upstairs. Breakfast offered... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on 24th and 25th July. I really loved the peace and quiet after a noisy night spent in the Isle of Bute. The bed was so very comfortable and I slept well. The breakfasts were wholesome and Jasmine cooked whatever you wanted. Jasmine and her husband were vety helpful and friendly. Next time I... More
