Who does not want to live in a luxury house where nothing is missing. Moreover, in Edinburgh, in a historic city center.
Two of the most luxurious hotels in Edinburgh’s most important spots for more than 20 years are preparing to turn into luxurious residences by closing their doors.
The five-star Howard Hotel on Great King Street, one of the key historic spots in the capital, and the 4-star Channings in South Learmonth Gardens, are planning to transform their rooms into apartments by the end of the year.
Channings, which has been serving in Endiburgh for 27 years, closed at the end of November. Howard Hotel, which started its service life in 1995, will close its doors in the last days of December.
After the arrangements to be made, these two hotel rooms will be in the service of those who want to be housed at these historical points of residence in Edinburgh. It is not known yet how these houses will be offered for sale.
In October 2016, an eight-bedroom property on Great King Street sold more than 1.7 million pounds. A four-room house sold 830,000 pounds in June. For this reason, it is estimated that hotel managers plan to earn more money by converting hotel rooms into houses in this direction.
Owners of The Edinburgh Collection, bought some of the other hotels in the area and added them to their buildings. One of these is The Tune Hotel at Haymarket.
Ricky Kapoor, General Manager of The Edinburgh Collection, said, “Our focus is to offer affordable hotel bedrooms to the capital city by purchasing the Tune Hotel, which we rebranded as Haymarket Hub Hotel.”
Nearly 40 employees working in the closing hotels were also unemployed. However, General Manager Ricky Kapoor added that a large portion of these employees will be distributed to other hotels owned by The Edinburgh Collection.
