Close to the main attractions including the older part of Edinburgh just a... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 adults and 2 teenage children. The location could not have been better for exploring the Grassmarket and Castle. The staff were very friendly and helpful if you have any questions about the city or where to eat. Although there are a few "adult" clubs at the end of the block, we... More

We traveled through Edinburgh for two nights with our family of five (2 adults and 3 teenagers). I booked at the Knight Residence based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. The location is very central (maybe a ten minute walk to the castle) and close to many dining options, shops, etc. The hotel appears to be a former... More

The Knight Residence was a perfect location for our five day stay in Edinburgh. We rented a triple that included a separate bedroom with a comfortable pull out sofa in the living room.. The rooms were clean, the service was excellent, and the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and, surprisingly, assorted breakfast items including cereal, milk, bread, coffee and teas.... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights and it was everything you could possibly want. All the facilities were clean and easy to use, and the staff were very helpful when we couldn't figure out how to work the washer-dryer. The location is great, as it is within walking distance of Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile.... More

My daughter and I, along with three friends, just returned from a week in Edinburgh and stayed in a two-bedroom comfort apartment at the Knight Residence. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and highly recommend it. The front desk is staffed with extremely helpful and friendly individuals who assisted us in a variety of ways, from getting taxis, recommending tours... More
