Convenient, perfectly pleasant and a good value!
Fantastic place to stay in Morningside/Merchiston, Edinburgh! While the bed wasn’t the most comfortable, the cleaning staff came every day and the apartment/flat was cheery and had everything I needed. The shower room was truly lovely and the kitchenette made it so easy to grab something from one of the local grocers and eat in. I was there for a week, and honestly it was perfect for my needs. The studio that I was in had a sofa bed, so technically you could sleep 4 - I’d only do so with small children. 4 adults would be too much. Highly recommended accommodation!! I’d stay there again!!

Excellent stay
Excellent room with a nice view in a great location. Could do with brighter lights in the toilet and kitchen. Kitchen tap needs to be tightened too.

great place
Great overnight, quiet & secure. All I required. Only thing was that overnight a bit cool. Even though I’d turned heating up. Think due to single glazing sash & case windows.

Good 6.0
Nicely appointed but some disappointing aspects
Very clean and quite well appointed apartment. However instructions for heating given however the radiators did not work. There were two portable heaters available but they were inadequate for the size of the room on a cold evening. Also the next morning I went out at 9.30 for a quick errand and returned at 10.00 to find a cleaner in the room well ahead of checkout time. Felt rushed and cleared out early.

Best Edinburgh festival
Although it was only for one night the flat was excellent and the children loved it thank you for helping our such a success

Comfortable stay
The apartment is spacious and comfortable. It is unmanned but support online is very efficient and helpful. Housekeeping service is good. A bit of a walk from city centre though.
Suet Yung, hk2 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Everything was excellent except for the sofa bed, once you put it up the middle looks and feels like a triangle so the kids ended up sleeping on the floor as it was far more comfortable.

Lovely apartments, clean, modern and homely.
Really great stay at Merchiston Residence; I would happily stay here again and recommend them to my friends.

An excellent flat in an excellent location
It was a quick 1-night stay for an interview the following morning. We arrived very late but entered as easy as if it was our own flat! No problem at all! We were pleasantly surprised to find everything at its best we could ask for, such comfortable mattresses and 5-star shower room / toilet!! Starbucks is one 1-min walk to have a coffee in the morning, in all, wish we could stay longer!
