They thought of everything

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
Well equipped. Great to have breakfast pack provided. At least I did not have to bring many of the things I normally have to bring on holidays. Staff very friendly. Short walk to city centre and the shops. Loved Camera Obscura and also also spent a while at Edinburgh Castle

Great experience at the Knight Residence

Would recommend Tue, Jul 1, 2014
The only partial negative to this hotel/apartment is its location among the adult clubs. Besides this, The Knight Residence was more than we could have hoped for and expected. The amenities are excellent. The staff is welcoming and helpful. They stocked the full size refrigerator with milk and juices, left a welcome basket with breakfast foods, coffees/teas, a loaf of bread. There is even a washer/dryer in the apartment with complementary detergent! They have really thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, I suspect reflecting the scottish people in general. A small problem with the room (which was really MY fault) was handled almost immediately. Security was excellent with electronic and keyed entry into the complex and apartment. An extra benefit was the selection of free DVD movies for borrowing, to allow some relaxation time in the comfort of the apartment after a long day of touring. The hotel is within walking distance of everything in Edinburgh, especially the Grassmarket area and Edinburgh Castle. Overall, I could not have been happier with our experience at the Knight Residence. I would not hesitate to stay here again, should I be fortunate enough to visit Scotland again.

Attractions

After walking the Royal Mile, visitors should explore the Closes which can be found all along the Mile. These small walkways open up other areas of the city and occasional unexpected delights (gardens, museums, pubs, etc.) which you would not find if you stayed on the Royal Mile alone.

Edinburgh Visit

Would recommend Thu, Jul 25, 2013
Four adults traveled to Edinburgh to visit family and to vacation. The Knight Residence was an excellent place to stay. Having a living room to relax and visit with friends and family was wonderful. Kitchen facilities were very nice. Everything was very , very clean. Beds were comfortable. The only thing that I would recommend would be a fan for each bedroom as we were there during the heat wave. I understand that air conditioning is fairly non-existent in Scotland as it is not needed but we happened to be there during high temps. Overall, an excellent experience for us!

Dining

Grass market very closeby with many eating options.

Family trip, US perspective

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 11, 2013
Overall, a fine hotel but not worth the price! Please keep in mind that I am comparing this place with the hotels in the US. The location was fine... Bad: Right next to 3 strip clubs (not a huge deal but it was a bit odd). Good: Not close but not too far away from the main action. The unit was nice + spacious (by European standards) but definitely not 5-star material. Probably 3 star. The rooms were too small. The carpets were not very clean. Housekeeping: Worst of all. They did not clean properly. Put back the dirty towels from the floor on the towel rack. Did not change the sheets. Basically, did a very careless/sloppy job. Not impressed at all. Front desk: Really nice and friendly guys. No problem at all. We would not return to this place... just an average place! Not bad, but nothing special about it!!

Family Fun

Would recommend Tue, May 28, 2013
With a family of 5 we often have to rent two rooms on our holidays. This was a clean and comfortable apartment for all with a gated parking lot. We were greeted by Chris, who was so polite, friendly and helpful. They thought of everything really. From a lightly stocked kitchen (at no charge), with dishwasher and washer/dryer (in apartment) to umbrellas at the doors. They are environmentally friendly, beyond the usual not changing sheets and towels, providing excellent toiletries and quailty paper products. It is centrally located and we walked to the castle, Princes St, the Writer's museum, the Grass Market, countless tours, etc. Our children are ages 17, 13 and 4 each had a teddy bear on their pillows and our 4 year old was provided crayons and activity books. We all had a fantastic time. One thing to note is if you are traveling with children under 18, most local pubs/restaurants don't allow them past 8pm.

Great room and location

Would recommend Wed, May 22, 2013
The room is really a suite with a kitchen, living area, bathroom, and bedroom. The location is great - you can walk to almost everything - sights, shopping, and restaurants.

Getaway

Would not recommend Wed, Nov 14, 2012
The hotel was ok, staff were helpful. The room could have been a lot cleaner, the glass lamp shade was coated in dust and the maid didn't Hoover the carpet where I had dropped a packet of crisps. The location was poor although described central. There were THREE strip bars at the end of the street which we had to walk pass every time we left the appartment and every time we did were jaunted at by the men outside. They made rude and sexists remarks to my friend and myself which left us very upset and scared to leave the appartment at night. I am only glad that I didn't take my children to this appartment to be exposed to this. We were not made aware of this on booking and feel we should have been. It felt like we were staying in the red light district! This has been my only holiday this year and i have been saving up for a long time to go and I am very disappointed. Your comments would be appreciated. Regards

Stay in central Edinburgh unless you want to take taxis everywhere!

We rented a one-bedroom apartment which was small but well laid-out. It had all the amenities that we needed- well equipped kitchen, a washer dryer, televisions in the master bedroom and the living room, nice bathroom with robes provided., dining table and chairs, good location to tourists sites and wonderful concierge staff.
