Best place we stayed in during our trip
My family stayed in three apartments and one hotel in three cities during a trip through Scotland. The Knight Residence was the best place we stayed. The apartments were clean, modern, secure and well-stocked, with far more provided in the kitchen (bread, milk, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cereals, preserves... and shortbread!) than any other apartment we stayed in. The staff were friendly and helpful, and they cleaned the place daily, even putting away dishes we left in the drying rack! The beds were quite comfortable -- like every other place we stayed, they used duvets, which can get hot for people like me, but the mattresses and pillows were good, and most importantly, we found no evidence of bedbugs. The roomy lounge had some DVDs, and more were available to rent (along with some books that you could borrow) near the reception area.
The apartment is located within easy walking distance of several Edinburgh attractions, particularly Edinburgh Castle. It is in a neighborhood with a collection of strip clubs, but I felt perfectly comfortable walking back to our apartment at night with another female family member.
I would love to come back to Edinburgh and stay longer in this apartment. I highly recommend it.
