Stayed in the Merchiston Residence in February and would highly recommend it and gladly return on future trips to Edinburgh. The apartment is nice and clean, the bathroom (actually shower) is modern and clean and has all amenities needed for stay. Rooms are serviced daily. Kitchen has all required (no freezer) in form of cooking utensils, stove, oven, fridge, cutlery... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Merchiston Residence! The apartment was really nice and clean, everything functioning and in good conditions. Clever check-in system. Bus stop at few meters, easy to reach the city centre. Really liked Edinburgh!!!

Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend this weekend, and both thoroughly enjoyed our time in the apartment. Arrived to find the tastefully furnished apartment spotlessly clean, and well equipped (including proper coffee and a cafetiere!). An instruction book filled with information for our time in the flat, as well as phone numbers and addresses for local taxi's, cafes,... More

Awesome funky apartments in an excellent area with lots of restaurants, described quite accurately by staff as the 'Notting Hill' of Edinburgh. The apartment relies on access codes for entry and exit (even to your room) which was a nice change from access cards and keys. The apartment itself was spacious and utilised space well, the 2nd double bed is... More

Well, what can I say but thank you very much for this fabulous title and for the review. We are delighted to read you enjoyed your stay, in one of our family apartments, which have the bed deck to which you refer. It's also great to hear you agree with us on the Notting Hill comparison, I know we are... More

We love visiting Edinburgh, but were in a little conundrum this trip as we were only down for one night and the place we usually stay with has a 2 night minimum. So my husband booked with Merchiston Residence. The apartment was lovely. The bed was comfortable and made it very tempting to be lazy the next morning and sleep... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our apartments, it's great to read that you enjoyed your stay and all the surrounding amenities. Can I reassure you that the code was changed immediately. As you are probably aware the code is specific to each guest and we are easily able to change them. We check codes as part of our... More

This place is excellent. it's very well designed and compact, ideal for tourists and families staying in Edinburgh for a few days. The prices are quite reasonable and service is top-notch. The kitchen is well equipped with pretty much everything you might need. It's literally a minute away from Tesco and walking distance from many popular restaurants. Perfect.

The Merchiston Residence was very nice. Clean, well laid out and it was perfect for our stay in Edinburgh. We would stay here again next time we are in Edinburgh. Good value for the price and close to most attractions in Edinburgh.

We recently stayed at the Merchiston Residence Apartments and would recommend them to anybody who is thinking of a visit to Edinburgh. The apartment was very modern and well equipped. In a quite area and only a short bus ride into the centre of Edinburgh.

Apartment was in a great area of Edinburgh and was very modern . You are given your apartment number before arriving along with a key code which you need to access the building and your apartment so it is very secure. The apartment itself was very modern and stylish with everything you would require during your stay, even down to... More
