We stayed in a Studio for two nights over the Rugby weekend. We requested a high floor and got floor five with a lovely view of a service courtyard and straight into neighbouring apartments. Had to keep our curtains closed!! The description on the booking site said we had a "monument view"!! The room was clean and tidy with tiny... More

Stayed one night on business. The hotel is modern, comfortable bed, good size, nice shower, and each room has a small kitchenette - fridge, microwave, kettle, glasses, plates, cutlery - which is in my view a +ve. The breakfast - a buffet - is served in the ground floor reception area and was very good with a mixture of continental... More

Overall a good stay. Very happy with being able to check in early and the (mostly) friendly and helpful staff. Room was a good size and cleaning also good. Our room was almost opposite the lift on the 7th floor, and the first 2 nights were not a problem, noise-wise. On our last night (Saturday) we were kept awake by... More

Our stay at the Residence Inn was perfect for us. We were looking for a Hotel that would allow us easy access to the City and this was perfect. We walked everywhere!

Arrived early and given a disabled room as others not ready. Lovely and clean but we found the room cold as it had no carpet. No extraction fan in the bathroom which also had no heating had to leave the door open from bedroom to left heat through. Kitchen is a great idea and very useful. Breakfast well cooked with... More

We booked this hotel as we liked the idea of having the suites and this was a very reasonable price. After walking from waverly station we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who informed us we were able to check in straight away (which was 2 hours before check in). After requesting a room on the top floor... More

Excellent solution if you visit Edinburgh. Rooms are spacious and clean, bed comfortable and the shower big enough for 2 persons. I like the wooden floor and the fact that you have a corner kitchen where you can prepare your own coffee. Breakfast included, only minus is that you need to pay separately if you want to have one cappuccino... More

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
