Really enjoyed our short stay, immaculate apartment, friendly helpful staff. Even had a little teddy bear and games pack for daughter and some bread milk cereal etc for us so we had stuff ready off breakfast. Very quiet yet still close to main attractions. Would thoroughly recommend.

I don't usually write reviews, but this place was fantastic. The concierge stood out, he met us in the parking lot to welcome us!. We were really impressed with the cleanliness of the room, it was immaculate, and the bread / cereals they provided for breakfast were appreciated and unexpected. The location was ideal and the bed was very comfortable.... More

We stayed for five nights in April. Our apartment had everything we needed and more. The Knight Residence went above and beyond in their response to a complicated request involving accommodating additional guests and this was greatly appreciated. Highly recommended on every count.

I'm hard to please with self catering accommodation. This place is superb. Immaculate, cosy yet stylish apartments in the heart if the city. You will be surprised by the attention to detail and how homely this residence is. Fully equipped kitchen to satisfy little fussy family members and decent wine glasses and a spotlessly clean fridge to satisfy mum! Impressive.

The apartment style of the KR is quite well executed. With a kitchen (partially stocked), washer/dryer, sitting room, DVR/BlueRay player, and other amenities, it provides a very good setting. The location is ideal (despite the oft noted two strip clubs nearby) for access to downtown Edinburgh. The University is nearby, Princes Street and the Royal Mile a short walk, and... More

We stayed at the Knights residence for 1 night as a family of four. This was one of the few apartments that offered a second bedroom as a twin ideal for our son and daughter. My 9 year old daughter declared she had slept like a baby and had the best nights sleep ever! The apartment was clean, spacious and... More

Fantastic service, very welcoming and informative. A large apartment with everything you could need and very central. Parking spot was a bonus and rare to Edinburgh. Welcome basket was a very nice surprise, complete with milk, bread, tea, coffee, juice, cereal, butter and jam. Would absolutely stay here again.

I was very impressed by the whole experience, starting with a very cheery and helpful reception team, and the provision or a clean, modern, large apartment for just £100 a night. I have recently stayed in more expensive accommodation that could not match the range of appliances including a proper oven, dishwasher, stereo, DVD player, and a flatscreen TV in... More
