"Comfortable and convenient to everything"
Knight Residence apartments are large with many conveniences (full kitchen, laundry) and near to the sites and restaurants. The staff was very helpful orienting us to the premises and neighborhood, as well as helping with our questions. We would definitely return to this hotel and it would be great for longer stays.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Would stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Thanksgiving in Edinburgh"
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by The Knight Residence Thanks Patrick, we really appreciate your custom.
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trip to Scotland"
We stayed in Edinburgh for 6 days at the Knight Residence. The staff (Charlie, Chris & Magda) were really great. Can't wait to go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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!

"Nice hotel on our driving trip."
Very nice apartment. We stayed 1 night while on a driving trip from Edinburgh to Scotland. The staff was excellent. They welcomed us when we arrived and explained the various appliances etc. in the apartment. We enjoyed our tour of Edinburgh castle and the local restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A true pleasure!"
The location was in easy walking distance of buses, train station, and every site we wanted to visit. The apartment was a 2 bedroom with kitchen, living room, and large 1 bathroom. Very clean, well kept, and quiet. The staff were very friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. Spent 5 nights there, and I would go back in a heartbeat.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Edinburgh apartment!"
Can't say enough good things about The Knight Residence. It was perfect in every way. Welcoming and professional receptionists. Apartments have every amenity, including wifi, cable TV, nice toiletries, complimentary groceries, gifts for the kids, cheap and easy parking, and housekeeping service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Within a short walk to most sights"
Loved these accomadations. Clean, spacious,friendly and extremely helpful staff. Parking on sight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little apartments in the heart of Edinburgh"
We loved this little place. It was a cute little apartment with a fridge, washer, microwave and stove.They even gave us cereal milk and cookies. Very homey.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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.

"Right by the castle"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Charlie,the concierge was great! Everyone there was so accomidating and went out of their way to help us,would recommend to anyone. Rooms were spacious & welcoming,located within walking distance the castle and royal mile. Loved it!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a family"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place but expensive"
The flat was very big but simple. I would prefer smaller but more elegant. The price too high. You will receive a breakfast basket in the first day, but they to not refill anymore whatever long will be you permanence in the hotel. Position is very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gem of a find"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely place to call home in Edinburgh"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful aparthotel in Edinburgh. Colin and staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Our apartment was stocked with the basic breakfast necessities -- very thoughtful! Although a bit off the beaten path, this place was quiet, friendly and an easy walk to the major attractions. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great service and good accommodation"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Location. Home away from home."
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.

"Great apartment, great staff, great city!"
I can tell you the apartment was everything and more that we hoped for. It was super clean, super comfortable, and in a great location. 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Home away from home"
I am glad I choose Knight Residence,great location, friendly staff members and comfortable stay made our trip memorable. I shall defintely recommend our friends and family to choose Knight Residence whenever they are in Edinburgh. We would like to come back again for a family holiday, because Knight Residence treated us so well.Thank you;)Genuine Expedia guest review
What a cool place. We got a 2 bedroom apartment. There was milk in the frig, cereal and a loaf of bread in the kitchen. It was clean. It is a good location but there are two strip clubs next store. There was no noise pouring out of them. They were just there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle"
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Scottish hospitality."
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place and staff"
Very clean, roomy, and comfortable, and the staff are amazing! It is only about 3 blocks to grass market, a little farther to the Castle. Taxis are cheap and the front desk can have one to you within a minute or two at the most. A great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great apartment disguised as a hotel."
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.

"Nicely located in Edinburgh..."
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful spacious apartments"
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.

"perfect for family"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really awesome place! Stayed the week, loved it."
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. Can't recommend highly enough. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
