I have stayed at The Knight Residence several different times and was once again very pleased with my accommodation. I really enjoyed the "homey" feeling of staying here. The staff's customer service is exceptional and they are always very helpful. The hotel is centrally located and within easy walking distance of the Grassmarket and Edinburgh Castle. There is a Sainsbury... More

We read a lot of good things about this residence and this is true. Price is definitively not cheap but in Edinburgh nothing really is. We rent a City One Bedroom Apartment and it is enough for a family with 2 young kids. Everything is clean. Kitchen is fully equipped and nothing is missing. We used it for morning breakfast... More

As a group of 5 we were looking for a larger place during the fringe festival and Tattoo. Our apartment was immaculately clean and tidy with very good en suite and bathroom facilities. Great starter pack on arrival and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The kitchen was a little small for a group of 5 adults but we... More

What a wonderful place to stay both for location in central Edinburgh and for hotel services. On arrival we received a warm welcome and told where to park to meet the concierge. This was followed with heaps of helpful advice as we were shown around the rooms. The rooms were very clean and well appointed with a goody pack waiting... More

When we arrived we were taken to our apartment, there was a lovely welcome pack which included cereal, bread, biscuits and milk. Just what we needed for getting ready in the mornings. Rooms were comfy and spacious. Our daughter who had been travelling Europe, met us there. It was perfect for the reunion, giving everyone space. Once we parked the... More

What a haven this is, with the Edinburgh castle a short walk away! Lovely apartment, supplied with food and even teddy bears for the kids. Great facilities and space, so happy to have a washing machine and even a dining room. A Sainsbury's grocery is a close walk away. My only complaint is that there's some night noise, and a... More

Want to stay in a "hotel" that is really an apartment with dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, stove, oven, microwave, breakfast basket of goodies? Knight Residence is a wonderful place to stay, with a lift, incredibly kind and helpful staff, clean & safe and in the midst of all the fun. Can't say enough good things about it!
