Nice place

Nice place , not very far from the center. Smoke smell in one of the rooms when we got there, but helpful staff sorted it out quickly.

Pros: what is not to like?

good hotel, excellent service... good to see it still exists!! Just around the cornet from the best breakfast café in Scotland. Would definitely book again

Wonderful ammenities

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Pros: The staff was kind, helpful, and professional. The location was terrific, next to sights and groceries (and awful, next to 2 bars).
Cons: If you are staying on a Friday or Saturday night and you reserved a 1 bedroom apartment, I'd recommend bringing ear plugs.
Location: Museums, restaurants, pubs, cheese shop, bookstores, groceries.
We were in Edinburgh for a short holiday. After a long flight from the U.S., the staff couldn't have been more welcoming! The apartment was quite clean and had everything we could want and more. The groceries were a wonderful addition and with the prices being so much higher for food than America, it was so helpful to have a grocery store just a 3 minute walk from the hotel front door. The 5 minute walk to Grassmarket was easy down, but uphill back and had great restaurants and a wonderful cheese market right next to "Oink"--a small place that sells inexpensive sandwiches made with fresh, roasted, pork. The only drawback was that our 1 bedroom apartment faced Lauriston Street. There are a few bars right next to the hotel that were loud on Friday, and so terribly loud on Saturday, that we all had to wear ear plugs to sleep, until they closed and the patrons left. You see, in the U.K., people can stand outside on the sidewalk and drink, and talk, and swear, and drink some more. The hotel has double-pained windows, which was great for every other night, there is just really nothing else to be done on the hotel's part. It is just the nature of the location. Sunday was heaven since the bars were not open!

Incredible stay in an amazing city

Posted 13-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Knight's Residence! It is in a great location within easy walking distance from so much (The Castle, Royal Mile, we even walked to Arthur's Seat!). Upon our arrival, our concierge, Chris, was incredibly helpful and informative, even giving us the idea to go look for Harry Potter information at Greyfriars Kirk down the street. Our three children loved spending their first hour in Edinburgh searching for Tom Riddle's headstone in a beautiful old graveyard!! The Knigh'ts Residence thought of everything! They even had a fresh carton of milk in the fridge! The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for a family of five. We highly recommend The Knight's Residence!!

A great place to stay in Edinburgh

Posted 10-Jun-2014
Pros: Attention to detail and unique needs: provisions we requested, excellent coffee and our nameplate on the door!
Cons: Easy to follow instructions for foreign visitors on how to adjust heating and work the towel warmer
Location: Walk to Edinburgh Castle and down Royal Mile; access to all the open top tourist bus routes; an excellent supermarket next door
A few days before arriving, a message arrived from Knight Residence enquiring about anything they could do to make our stay comfortable. The staff responded almost instantly to our questions. This willingness to meet our unique needs shaped our expectation as well as experience. The Residence is designed to be not just another hotel, but a home away from home. The 1-bedroom unit was a full fledged apartment with comfortable furniture, well appointed kitchen and spacious living/dining room. It has a great location, which gives easy access to all the key attractions in the City Centre. Finally, the security features create a very high sense of safety.
