"Nice apartment , close to Grass Market"
We stayed At Knight's Residence at the end of July 2015 for 5 nights. We found it great for an extended stay having a kitchen, living room and washer/dryer unit. The location in the city was good, very near the Grass Market. There are several strip clubs in the area that you have to walk by but we never heard any rowdiness and never saw any questionable characters lurking about. The staff is helpful and pleasant. The only critique I will give was the shower in Apartment 5 has a half wall of glass that really doesn't prevent the water from splashing out onto the floor unless you turn the shower very low. We had to mop the floor after every shower. Very reasonable price so book early as they are at over 95% occupancy most of the year. If you are going any time in August during the Fringe, you best book a year ahead.

"Home away from home in the heart of the city"
Perfect for families. We usually have to get two hotel rooms for our family of 4. It was so nice to have a place that felt like a home where we could have breakfast and watch movies. The guys at the front desk were very sweet to the kids and helpful with tourist information.

"Great Place to Stay"
In Edinburgh for 3 nights. Hotel is in a great location. The hotel staff are wonderful. Charlie and Chris handled every detail for us. Having milk, orange juice, bread and cereal already in the room was beyond our expectations and such a pleasant surprise. We had our own flat in the City and we loved it!

"Well-designed apartments in a great location"
I have now stayed at the Knight Residence twice over the course of several years. They were a delightful discovery the first time, and I was very happy to find that they have maintained the same high standards. The staff is very friendly (but never intrusive), the apartments are extremely thoughtfully appointed, and the whole place is so soundproofed you'll forget you are not the only occupants of the building. You'll have everything you need (plus a Sainsbury's Local nearby for anything else). Neighborhood, as others have said, is a mixed bag, but never in my experience noisy or worrisome in any way. The convenience of the hotel to the castle, the lively Grassmarket area, or the beautiful Meadows park that takes you to Holyrood cannot be beat. In short, this is a great place to stay. You'll have privacy, convenience, and plenty of room in a lovely modern apartment that makes a great home base to explore Edinburgh!

"Great choice"
Loved our stay here- my requests were accommodated easily and the concierge was respectful and helpful. We were only a few blocks from Grassmarket, and although next to a few less-desireable properties, overall was a great spot, and we had a lovely quiet room with a great gift basket for breakfasts that was really handy. The grocery on the same block was great too for the evening we wanted to just relax by ourselves in the apartment.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in February for our 10th wedding anniversary. We arrived a bit early but we were allowed to check in as our apartment was ready. I was greeted in the apartment with a large bouquet of flowers (from my husband) that the staff had sorted out for him on request, which was a lovely surprise!! We were also given a food hamper to get us started which contained bread, milk a selection of cereals and jams/marmalades, which is a nice touch also. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and warm. The concierge team were all so friendly and couldn't do enough for you, they made sure we knew where everything was when we arrived and were on hand if we needed any info or taxis etc. the apartments location is great, just a short walk to all Edinburghs attractions shops restaurants bars etc. I really couldnt fault the Knights residence, it was like home from home and we would most definitely stay here again in the future

Wonderful Christmas experience. Overall this was a fantastic place to stay and we would go back. Location was within walking distance of nearly everything we wanted to see in Edinburgh (though you are immediately adjacent to three strip clubs, we always felt safe and there was no street noise at all). The staff was friendly and always helpful. Cabs, if needed, would arrive in less than 5 minutes when called by to hotel staff (or when we used the City Cabs app, which worked beautifully). Wifi was available, but inconsistent. It would often not reach the main bedroom. Fellow travelers be warned: the washer and dryer advertised are tiny, and they are the same machine. we packed less, anticipating a mid-week load of washing. The machine only held about 2 pairs of pants and 2 shirts, and took about 3 cycles (4 1/2 hours) to fully dry. Your best bet would be not plan to use these machines for anything but underwear and socks. The kitchen was perfect. We ate breakfast in the room most days (groceries were a 2 min walk away), and cooked one full meal. We had everything we needed, and the hotel supplied basics of juice, milk, coffee, tea, and cereal etc. to get us started.

Our week long stay at the Knights Residence was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The room/apartment was well appointed, very clean and very comfortable. it was nice to be able to bring friends back to entertain in our living room, watching some of the many movies available in the lobby. The kitchen is well stocked with breakfast items, which was very convenient, and there is a grocery store just around the corner.

"Wonderful ammenities"
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!

"Excellent! Had an amazing time!"
This hotel is a hidden gem! It's so close to everything in the Old Town section. Super close to Edinburgh Castle, nice shopping on Victoria Street, and some great pubs/restaurants down on Grassmarket. Yes, it is next to three strip clubs and the patrons of those establishments can be a little noisy around 1 or 2am, HOWEVER, the police regularly patrol the area and each strip club has at least one burly bouncer (sometimes two) so the area is about as safe as it gets. If the noise bothers you, shut your windows; they are soundproof (or very nearly soundproof). I slept like a rock! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and good places to eat and shop. He gave us a map and marked locations of good places to go and informed us of the bluetooth streaming capabilities of the sound system (you can stream your music in the bathroom!). The welcome basket of breakfast foods was wonderful! A whole jug of milk and orange juice and loaf of bread, in addition to cereals, jams, coffee, and biscuits. Really nice. The en suite laundry was a lifesaver after 4 days of hiking! The hotel even supplied us with laundry and dish detergents. The bed was comfy, the room was clean and spacious. Everything exceeded our expectations! You cannot beat this hotel for excellent service, amazing proximity, and a great place to stay for the price!

"Incredible stay in an amazing city"
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!!

"Walking distance to Grassmarket and Royal Mile"
We were met by the concierge in the lobby and taken to our room. A complimentary gift basket with various teas, coffees, cereals, and cookies was provided in the kitchen. Our concierge gave us a tour of the apartment and recommended some activities for our stay. The room was clean and well maintained. We were easily able to walk from the hotel to both the old town and the new town. The only drawback was the hotel's proximity to the nearby strip clubs. It wasn't a security or safety issue, only that the lads leaving the clubs at 1 AM were a little noisy. If the noise is a concern, try to request a room on the back side of the hotel. That being said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this facility. It was easily the best hotel we visited in our 2 week visit to the UK and France. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others.

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.
