Great Location and Quiet

Great location near Grass Market and the Royal mile. I think we should gotten the superior room instead of standard as the apartment was a little dated. Many restaurants close by but it was nice to eat breakfast in the apartment as it is always hard to get started on vacation.

Great place, staff most helpful.

Once you figure out driving in Edinburgh and how to get to the secured parking, the Knight Residence is very convenient to most of the inner city. Apartments are clean and spacious. Excellent connections via wireless and staff is very friendly and helpful. If you like golf, within short walking distance to Bruntsfield pitch and putt course. Libation after at the Golf Tavern is a must.

Excellent!!

This was an excellent selection for our family! We traveled with two kids (ages 9 & 3) and needed the extra space to spread out. The kitchen provided all necessary amenities to have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Washer/Dryer were crucial. Free parking was a nice bonus. The location was great because the castle and Princes Street are a short walk away, as are supermarkets and other stores and restaurants. The only negative thing (and it is minor) I can think of is that it is close to some bars and clubs, but we only had late-night noise on Saturday night and it really didn't bother us. The staff was extremely helpful with directions to find our way around the city and they loaned us a converter when the one we brought didn't work. When we return to Edinbrough this is definitely the place we will stay!

Kick back and enjoy

The Knight Residence was absolutely superb in every respect. I was so worried about finding an affordable (but comfortable) hotel in Edinburgh. My parents were over from America, so they have a somewhat higher standard of comfort. Instead of booking two separate double rooms, we had one flat to share as a family at a very reasonable price (no need to collect a key across town from an office they have staff on-site). First, the staff is unbelievably nice. The concierge was friendly and helpful, and the cleaning staff was obliging (still cleaning our flat daily even though we are very late risers!). Second, the flat itself is brand new and equipped with washer/dryer, DVD, WiFi, high standard bathrooms, full kitchen. They also give you a little stash of tea/coffee/cereal/milk to start you out on when you arrive. The beds were comfortable, and all of the linen (even plush bathrobes) was replaced daily if requested. Lastly, the location was closer than ever to the touristy bits without being in the thick of it (my older non-walking parents were impressed). In the past, I have stayed in another hotel in Edinburgh that was just as nice, but not as relaxing and twice the price. Keep in mind, there is construction on the street so try to reserve a room that will not be affected by the noise. One complaint: the room was advertised as two queen rooms, which technically was correct, but the beds were actually arranged as 1 queen and 2 twin beds.
