Hopetoun Garden Apartment, close to Edinburgh city centre, won second place in the mid-range category.

This stylish two-bedroom flat is located close to the city centre, within walking distance of Edinburgh’s many famous attractions like Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle, and more.

Though the building’s architecture is reminiscent of an older era, it was in fact built in 2004, and has the advantages of a modern build with contemporary furnishings.

The flat also has access to a shared patio, which is great for relaxing outside on summer nights.

The property features two bedrooms (sleeping up to six people) and costs from £90 per night.

TripAdvisor spokesperson Laurel Greatrix says, “This year’s winners highlight the incredible variety of homes on TripAdvisor Rentals, and the many different travellers they appeal to.

"Winners range from a family-friendly home in Orlando with a private pool, to a chic centrally located apartment in Rome, but one thing every winner has in common is an owner who provides an exceptional experience.”

Laurel continued, “And with a few more quirky homes appearing across the three categories this year—an adorable Shepherd’s hut in the UK, for example—it’s clear that travellers are looking for something truly memorable when it comes to their accommodations.”
