We were traveling from the US to Edinburgh. We phoned ahead to confirm that we could drop our luggage since we figured the rooms could not be ready. When we arrived at 9:30AM, Konstantina greeted us with a smile and not only had our rooms available, but we had a beautiful view of Edinburgh Castle. Our son has Celiac (Coeliac)... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn for three night recently and it is one of the best hotels we've stayed at for a while. Others may have various combinations of facilities, customer service, location, and/or comfort but they're always missing something - the Residence Inn ticked all of our boxes. From the minute we stepped into the hotel, we were... More

Have visited on three occasions (four if you include a bar visit) and like this hotel. Each visit has varied in terms of the room (the first was brilliant, the second a disaster as near the lift, and the third good). All rooms are immaculate and clean. The main atrium of the hotel is businesslike and the staff amazing. The... More

Stayed here on business in Edinburgh. It was perfect. Simple modern and convenient. The room came with a functional small kitchen which was very nice to have. The Quartermile are is an attractive development close to the University with quite a few interesting renovations in the area.

The staff was consistently very welcoming and helpful all around, and the location was a newly-constructed neighborhood within a 10 minute walk to Royal Mile, adjacent to the university, convenient to a small grocery store. The rooms and public spaces are built with clean contemporary neutral finishes, all new, and the breakfast was decent. One especially especially nice treat -... More

My son and I were thrilled by our recent stay at this modern property. The room size, amenities and service were outstanding. And the location was superb - quite area so close to the historic and bustling Royal Mile.

We had a great stay at this Residence Inn. We had primarily selected it for its laundry room. (Note, the laundromat in the Grassmarket is now out of business!). We were able to access it right away and it was available which was extremely convenient to us. The room was very modern and large. We were concerned about the heat... More

Our third stay here and we don't look elsewhere now. Great rooms. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Great location. We checked in via our mobile phone this time and as we arrived at reception we were handed our room keys leaving others waiting looking on. Hard to beat.

Great location, next to the old hospital but surrounded by glass and chrome skyscrapers. Very nice room, good staff, free breakfast, laundry facilities. Walking distance to many good restaurants on Forest Road area and to major bus stop where you can catch a bus to almost any attraction in the city.

The room was very spacious, and very well appointed. With a small kitchen (including kettle, microwave, fridge and toaster), powerful shower, over desk TV and lovely sofa I struggled to find anything it didn't have! The breakfast was plentiful and offered a good mix of hot and cold options. The staff were friendly and very professional - training is clearly... 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.
