The apartment was nice, modern, and well equipped to include paper towels and clothes washing detergent. The complimentary food basket provided a nice mix of breakfast foods and a few snacks. The staff was extremely attentive, helpful, and always available. The apartment was right by the castle and the Grassmarket with plenty of places to eat. Additionally, a grocery store was only a few steps away. The staff was friendly and were always ready with a suggestion or tourist information.

We seriously enjoyed our stay at the Knight's Residence. It is close to the castle, and major attractions. Close to the Grassmarket neighborhood of restaurants and small shops. We walked to New Town for other shopping, the Prince Street Park, and other options for dining. The apartment was nice and clean. We went with our adult children, so had a 2 bedroom with twin beds in one and this was great. You do have to walk past a couple of strip clubs for the front door, but this was not a problem. THere is a small grocery within 1/2 block. Parking is daily rated, but is secured, and you won't need your car, anyway!

We had a party of 3 adults that stayed in a two bedroom apt. for 3 days. It was extremely clean and comfortable and also very convenient to main Edinburgh attractions as well as neighborhoods near the university and good restaurants. The small staff was very cheerful and helpful. This arrangement was expecially great if you have 3 or 4 travellers and need some extra space. I would definitely return.

The location of the Knights Residence is excellent to most of the sights of Edinburgh, especially in the old town. The apartment is spacious with all the amenities one would expect, including milk, juice, and butter waiting in the fridge on arrival. There is a Tesco Local a very short distance away for any provisions one may need. The concierges were very nice and helpful with anything we needed. The only thing that might detract, were the small strip clubs down the street, but they were very quiet and really barely noticeable, even on the weekend. I wouldn't even mention it except...well...they were there and my 15-year-old daughter thought it was pretty funny. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, and will be booking it again next time I find myself in Edinburgh.

Our stay at the Knights Residence in May was perfect. The staff could not have been more helpful,from places to eat, listen to music, and a great hike on our trip to Rosslyn Chapel. The location of these serviced apts. was it's selling point, Grassmarket area, in the shadow of the castle, many shops and restaurants nearby. We felt safe and secure, our apt(15) was very quiet. It was a bargain price-wise, for all the amenities, but we especially enjoyed all the staff, they couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again, so much better than any impersonal hotel.

I needed a place in Edinburgh, near to things, but not a usual hotel. I found this hotel through the Expedia package. It was a GEM. It is really a small apartment. I had a big bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen, and a living dining room. The staff were ready for my arrival, they had some food in the pantry and my name on the door. The location is very convenient to the sites of Edinburgh, all walkable. It is on a quiet street, and has a grocery store just two doors away. I think this would be a great hotel for a longer stay and be a wonderful place for a family. I hope to make it back. My thanks to Christopher and the team.

Service, service and service! Nothing else matters much after that. There is a Sainsbury local outlet near by. The only drawback is the near by strip clubs and lap dancing outlets and nights can be bit noisy for roadside rooms (those who venture out late night and those sensitive to noise may possibly have some issues?). The overall safety of the building is excellent.

The duty manager was fantastic; extremely friendly, knowledgable and helpful. They set you up with breakfast and really leave no convenience "unturned." Rooms, kitchen and bathroom all very clean. Great private parking off street with great access to hotel. About a 5-10 minute walk to the Edinburgh castle and the Royal Mile at a leisurely pace. My only regret is that we were not there for longer. We will definitely return to The Knight Residence when we revisit Edinburgh. Absolutely recommend it, especially for families.

The staff could not have been more pleasant and eager to assist. The kitchen was stocked with milk, bread, and teas and cereals upon arrival. If I return to Edinburg (and I would be so lucky to) I would return to Knight Residence.

The hotel was wonderful with excellent service. It was difficult to find initially and the GPS had us going in circles several times before we finally saw a sign for the hotel parking lot. We were there with our three kids so weren't thrilled about the strip club two doors down. However, the apartment was very comfortable with every amenity we could possibly need. Very nice... wish we could have stayed another couple of nights!

Location in Old Town on Castle end of Royal Mile next to GrassMarket at the base of the Castle. Surrounding establishments include small Sansibury grocery store, small shops and bars. The bars are active to early morning period and their patrons are generally quiet. Access to from Railway station is taxi ride at 5 GPB or 15 - 20 minute walk. Access to airport is by taxi at 20 GPB, Airlink Bus at 3.5 GBP (St Johns stop and 10 minute walk), or local bus at 1.5 GBP. We found location acceptable and would use it as a base again. Accommodations allow flexible eating arrangements similar to conveniences of home. Electronics include flat screen TVs, DVD with complementary room selection and Hotel library at 1GBP, and audio system. Chairs, sofas and bed are comfortable. In room safe is easy to use with volume for papers and portable electronics. The staff makes you feel at home in your apartment including your name on the front door as well as on the entrance to the building. Excellent Scottish hospitality. Perioid of stay 4 nights early October 2012.

The Knights Residence is lovely, comfortable, and has a wonderful staff.It was fairly conveniently located. However, I did not like being in an area surrounded by strip bars/clubs, including one 2 doors down. Lots of signs about lap dancing, & more. I doubt that I would have chosen it had I known about the many strip bars. Of course, that could be an appeal for some people. There is a grocery store very near, and the train stations are about a mile away.

We arrived at 9:00 to find our name on the door and the room ready which was greatly appreciated since we had been traveling all night without sleep. Further the room was stocked with enough food for a decent breakfast. The "room" is actually a small apartment with all of the modern appliances you would expect of one, including dish washer, cloths washer and dryer. There was a free internet connection in the room and in case you forgot a computer, there was one in the hall. The staff is terrific, they helped with all sorts of questions and provided everything we asked for. There is a good grocery store around the corner. The only down sides were, a bit noisy at night though closing the windows silenced that. It was a 15 minute walk to the Edinburgh Castle. In short, a great place to stay for anyone, especially if you like kitchen and laundry in a large modern and clean apartment. If we are ever back in Edinburgh, we will stay here.

This hotel is pleasing if you get a good rate. We had a problem with the hot water... and it was literally that, the hot water. Our first day and a half was 'hell' as there was only hot water in our shower. The next day the manager went up to our room and adjusted the internal mechanism in our shower head to allow more cold water in the mix (very odd.) Other than this 'burning' detail, the hotel is comfortable and well situated. I must warn you that it's location is withing a few yards from 3 'lap dance' establishments; but then it's also within a few yards from the Grassmarket area, right below the castle. There are plenty of nice restaurants within the area. Be aware that there is not a restaurant within the hotel; but you have a full kitchen to bring stuff from the store, which is a 30 second walk from the place.

Save for an ongoing problem with the washer/dryer in our apartment, we thoroughly enjoyed every other aspect of our four-night stay at the Knight Residence. Our one-bedroom "comfort" apartment was located in the annex, very quiet and removed from Edinburgh's hustle and bustle during festival and Tattoo season. Service was gracious and attentive (many thanks especially to Kevin and Chris), and the generous welcome basket that awaited us fufilled our breakfast needs.

our family of 3 were able to have more room here, including a kitchen than a traditional hotel, we utilized the pull-out couch. Charlie brought up the linens, pillows and extra towels, robes shortly after our check-in when we informed him our son would also be staying with us. The surrounding strip-bars were not a problem. Grassmarket and castle nearby. I would recommend Maggie Dickson's pub. had great curry, steak and ale pie and fish and chips.

My family and I have stayed at some of the nicest hotels in the world, and I can honestly say that The Knight Residence was one of the more pleasurable places we have ever stayed. Great location, great service, nicely appointed apartments with full kitchen. Location is right in the heart of Edinburgh, a truly magnificent city, front desk was helpful, knowledgable, and made our stay effort-free. We have two kids under 13, and we had plenty of space to stretch our legs and enjoy the comfort of this "home away from home" kinda place. I don't write reviews very often, but this place is awesome.

This is a wonderful hotel mainly due to the front desk staff. Chris, Charlie, Kevin and Collin were all amazing, super friendly, attentive and informative. They were always willing to help with any and all concerns, issues and questions. The location is great. Two female travelers and we never felt unsafe in the area. Enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen due to a limited diet since cancer and I was so happy to find great food supplies close - even a nice farmer's market on Saturday. I highly recommend this hotel to any and all as Edinburgh was an amazing city and so much was within walking (we like to walk a lot) but still a great deal to see near. Only had a few maid issues but the helpful amazing front desk always resolved the lack of something or incomplete issues. I would say this was one of my favorite hotels to stay. Hope I have the opportunity to return someday - would NOT stay anywhere else!!

I would recommend this hotel to families of four visiting the city. The location is close to the Royal Mile while being in a night life district. It is a short walk to the Castle, near great restaurants and a short walk to the Scottish National Museum, a must see for families with kids. As for the residence itself, the food that is supplied makes a great start for breakfast and for team and coffee when you arrive. The one pound video rentals for kids are also great. Loved the staff and their information and welcome.

The hotel is in a great location. Walking distance from the Grass Market, Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a two room one bathroom suite and had lots of room. The kitchen is a wonderful size and has a w/d and dishwasher. The grocery store is a 2 minute walk so we were able to buy plenty of breakfast foods and snacks. The staff keeps a large dvd library. After a long day of sightseeing it was very nice to come home and watch a movie together. Would definitely stay here again!!!

An all around great experience. The apartment was immaculately clean and very comfortable; and the front desk staff were invariably helpful with advice and tips. The location is excellent, in the heart of the Old Town. A Sainsbury's right around the corner offers a good selection of prepared foods and groceries. Yes, there are lap dancing clubs on the corner, but they are a minor annoyance and easily ignored.

We were two couples touring Scotland together. The two-bedroom apartment was perfect for us because we could gather together and plan. The bathroom was modern, the kitchen was ample and had .a washer/dryer. Our favortie meal in Scotland, though not the most expensive, was Mussels and Steak in the Haymarket neighborhood, an easy walk. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. If you book and are driving a car, let them know ahead of time so you will have a parking space.

I cannot say enough good things to say about the Knights Residence. We were weary travelers who had missed our connection from London to Edinburgh, so we had to drive to Edinburgh, a scary experience after a long flight. We arrived very late. The office stayed open waiting for us and greeted us warmly and sincerely. We asked where the nearest place to find a drink and the concierge bought us the a couple of bottles of those little wines. THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC! It was wonderful to come to a place where were could all gather after a full day and before a full day. We had enough food stocks to start us off. I am only sorry that I cannot rate them higher than a superb.

The apartment (2 bedroom/2 bathroom) was spacious (living room and separate kitchen/dining area) and a welcome respite after staying in a small hotel room in London. Everything was emaculate and very comfortable. Easy walk to Grassmarket and stairways for to access the castle and Royal Mile were nearby.

We had a great stay here. Charlie was extremely welcoming and helpful. The apartment was spacious: a good-sized kitchen, living room with two couches and a television, two bathrooms (one with a shower stall, one with a tub/shower) and two bedrooms--one with twin beds where our two children slept, and one with a double/queen. The kitchen had been stocked with some breakfast food items, and there were plenty of fresh towels. Free WI-FI worked well. Location was great too--Edinburgh is pretty walkable in general but the Knight Residence is just a short walk to the Grassmarket, and from there just a bit farther to the Royal Mile, etc. There is a grocery nearby as well. We didn't really use the kitchen for cooking but it was well-stocked with the basics and we had breakfast in the apartment each morning. There was a dishwasher as well. Only two downsides: 1) The washing machine did not work properly. This was disappointing as we were in Edinburgh for the second half of our UK trip and had accumulated enough dirty laundry so that it would have been nice to do some wash. It was a combined washer/dryer unit which seemed to wash the clothes fine, but then they stayed damp no matter how long we left it running. We ended up having to give a load of damp clothes to the housekeeper just to get them dry. 2) The shower stall was TINY, and the bathroom it was in was pretty cramped overall. Everything was spotless and worked properly, etc, but be prepared for a tight space!

Great stay here. Had a two bedroom apartment and stayed with three children and a toddler. The place was immaculate and plenty big enough. Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Great big DVD collection to borrow at will. Fab location, we were able to walk everywhere. A home from home, in fact they even put your names on the external buzzers in case you have guests, lovely little touch:)

So glad we stayed at the Knight's Residence and will definitely use this accommodation again. The welcome grocery pack was fantastic. The apartment was lovely, the beds very comfortable and the position of the apartments is perfect to explore Edinburgh. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

What a marvellous find! We had 3 nights stay and were very comfortable. The staff were courteous, friendly and helpful; nothing was too much trouble to either explain, arrange or sort out. Our two rooms were very comfortable (and nice and warm, despite the really cold winter weather outside), and the apartment block is well situated in the heart of Edinburgh, a short walk from the Grassmarket. We look forward to returning for a longer stay and would recommend The Knight Residence to anyone visiting the city.

From the moment we arrived the concierge couldn't do enough for us. The friendliness and helpfulness was outstanding. The apartment itself was very well eqipped with all mod cons including free reliable wifi. It was perfect for our family of five - two of which are teenagers. Beds were very comfortable, a free DVD lending service is available and the complimentary hot drinks machine in the reception was a very pleasant extra. The location was ideal being just behind the castle so everywhere could be reached on foot. The bathrooms including an ensuite were well stocked with quality complimentary toiletries. All in all this place comes highly recommended and my family will certainly be returning.
