"Clean, comfortable, convenient"
The Knight Residence was the perfect accommodation for our family while visiting Edinburgh. It was very roomy and comfortable. All necessities were included. It was nice to have 2 baths and a full kitchen and in-unit laundry! Very convenient to all of the popular sites. Would definitely stay there again!

"Quality hotel"
Our stay was excellent! We were greeted outside and then taken to our apartment, where Christopher showed us around, explaining everything we needed to know. He had also left a basket of breakfast food including juice, milk, etc. to last for our stay. The residence is a short walk to lots of shops and restaurants. We had a full kitchen , including washer/ dryer combination. The staff was fantastic and made us feel at home. We really enjoyed our stay!

"Very Comfortable"
It was a great place to stay in Edinburgh, the room was supplied with bread, milk, juice, coffee and breakfast foods. My only issue was that it is across the street from two strip clubs, even so, it was very safe, quiet and we had a lovely time in a lovely city. Extremely friendly helpful staff.

Would stay here again! We had a bit of an issue with the shower on our first of three nights. They couldn't fix it the first night (it was after 10) so they gave us a key to another room to use the shower. A plumber had the issue fixed by lunchtime!

"Nice hotel walking distance to Old Town."
The Knight Residence is much more than a hotel and perfect if you need a home away from home. The immaculate units all have a full kitchen so if you don't feel like eating out you can easily stay in prepare a meal yourself. The hotel is located walking distance from Grassmarket and a few more steps (albeit mostly uphill) will see you in Old Town at Edinburgh Castle or on the Royal Mile. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful.

"Very comfortable - Great alternative to a hotel"
Staff was very friendly and extraordinarily helpful. These centerally located apartments are about one mile from the train station and the terrain is hilly between, consquently I would suggest a cab if you are thinking of walking. The staff was excellent and the room came with daily maid service. Our two bedroom appartment was also set up with a variety of breakfast items upon check in, which was very nice. The neighborhood felt very safe dispite a strip club being near by. The facilities were perfect for our family of four and we would recomend this place to anyone.

Our apartment (2 bed, 2 bath) was conveniently located and an easy walk to all the important sights of Edinburgh as well as shopping. The staff, especially Christopher, couldn't have been more helpful by providing us with details about the flat and the surrounding area. The apartment was very spacious, bigger than expected really for a flat anywhere in the UK, and exceptionally outfitted for a week-long stay with our family. A great value, great stay in Edinburgh. We'll be back and stay again at the Knight Residences!

"Great Location to Castle and Royal Mile"
The apartment was a short walking distance to a small grocery store, restaurants, Edinburgh Castle and The Royal Mile. It was nice inside but a bit shabby around the edges. The carpets were in need of being replaced. The beds were O.K. We were pleased to find the kitchen stocked with cereal and snacks. They even included salt and pepper. The washer/dryer is a bear to use and takes a long time. It seemed quite expensive for the quality.

"More like an apartment or condo"
With 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room and a fully furnished kitchen, this is much more an apartment or condo than a hotel room. There was a generous supply of breakfast foods when we arrived including milk in the fridge, two different juices, a loaf of fresh bread and a basket of misc. cereals and snacks. We fixed our evening meal in our room each night and the kitchen had everything we needed. There were two grocery stores located near by. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go, it's realy close to the Edinburgh Castle. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, in fact, they were wonderful! We loved this place!

"Fully Appointed Apartment"
We stayed in a two bedroom comfort apartment in September. It was extremely well appointed. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook in, and even a welcome basket including bread, butter, jellies, various cereals, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, juices, milk and more. There were two bedrooms, each equipped with a TV, clock, robes and blow dryer. There were two bathrooms with steam free mirrors and toiletries. The lounge had two sofas, and additional seating. There was a TV and DVD/CD players. There was a selection of CD's in the room. Books and DVD's were available outside reception. The staff was extremely customer focused, provided recommendations, and booked several outings for us. The location is near the Grassmarket and is within easy walking distance of all Old Town sites. The building itself is mid-70's and is a bit off the beaten path, but still ideal for the right traveler. This would be an exceptional place for people planning an extended stay.

"Excellent hotel near the Royal Mile"
This location boasts large, attractive apartment-style rooms, and is near the historic city center. Our residence was a two bedroom suite listed for occupancy of four; it could actually fit six as one of the sofas folded out to a double bed. In suite washer and dryer, along with an up-to-date kitchen. Master bedroom was quite large. Second bedroom was slightly tight, but still comfortably slept two (in separate beds). The staff were are extremely helpful, and all requests were responded to promptly. An extremely comfortable place to stay in Edinburgh.

"Great location for exploring Edinburgh."
The Knight Residence was more than I hoped it would be. Firstly, the location can't be beat for those not wishing to stay along the Royal Mile or Princes Street. This Old Town location provided access to numerous restaurants, shops, as well as being a great base for catching excursion buses and traversing the city's various neighborhoods. Of course, I should mention that walking is my preferred mode of transportation. Next, the staff. They were so accommodating and ready with quick recommendations that were spot on. They were cheery, helpful, and alert to our needs. And the accommodations themselves were clean and comfy (except for some nightly noise from thoughtless upstairs residents). We were happy to find a washer/dryer in the apartment as well as all household necessities. Surprisingly, our fridge had been filled with juice, butter, and milk, and the counters were stocked with convenient groceries to allay the need to visit shops for breakfast or snacks! Wifi was a bonus, as was the second television.

"Great for longer stays"
We were only in the Knights Residence for one night but you could see that it would be great for much longer stays as the room was essentially a converted flat. Charlie, the concierge, was incredibly nice and helpful and the rooms were clean, if a bit plain and outdated. It's only a few blocks from the Grassmarket, however, you do have to pass several strip clubs in order to walk back and forth between town and the hotel. Otherwise, I would recommend it.

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!

"Great Place to Stay in Old Town"
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.
