Ten minute bus journey from the centre, rooms are a good size with small kitchen, had a great nights sleep. staff at desk very friendly and asked me how I got on with my search for a buffet style food place for dinner for my 9 year old daughter. Breakfast in the morning tasty, definitely be back.

This is an excellent hotel that is centrally located to many of the city's attractions and numerous restaurants all within walking distance.The staff go out of their way to accommodate you providing directions to places, making dinning reservations and responding to any of your concerns in a timely manner. Rooms are well maintained and spacious but not air conditioned which... More

This is a great place for couples or families. I stayed in a 1 bedroom Queen which featured a simple kitchenette with all the necessities and layed out well with lots of light. It was clean and the reception/bar staff were welcoming when we arrived at 12am. Breakfast was included which was ample to carry you through the day. This... More

I stayed here for 1 night on a Saturday night at the beginning of June 2015 whilst visiting Edinburgh for the weekend with my best girl friend. We booked this hotel through booking.com a good couple of months before our trip and felt that it was a reasonably priced hotel for our budget, as we found many of the hotels... More

Just got back from 6 nights at the Residence Edinburgh. We are Marriott Rewards people so we always try to stay at a Marriott. Residence Inn was well located (easy walk to heart of the city), large rooms, and very clean. The Staff members were helpful when asked. There were two minor issues: the elevator required the room key but... More

It's a fraction out of the way I suppose, in the sense that looking on the map it doesn't appear as central as other places, but when you get there you realise it is actually closer to the main sites than you think - you can certainly walk to them, no problem. Very friendly, helpful staff, you can have a... More

We spent one night at this hotel on our first night in Edinburgh. Large, clean room with a king bed and double size sofa sleeper. The room was not air conditioned, but we had a corner room which allowed us to open the windows for nice air flow. Good location to walk to the sights around Edinburgh. Great breakfast with... More

We stayed 3 nights while in Edinburgh. We arrived very early (9:30am) and they were able to get us in one of our rooms, which was great. The rooms were good sized with nice furnishings (only downside was no AC but it happened to be incredibly warm while we were there otherwise I don't think you would notice). The staff... More

This was my first time in Edinburgh and I was very happy with my stay at Residence Inn – it was pleasant and comfortable. I arrived on a rainy day and it was not that pleasant to walk with my suitcase from the train station to the hotel (which normally takes 15-20 minutes). So I decided to take a black... More

Stayed here for 5 nights while in Edinburgh. The hotel was fairly new, very clean, and the staff helpful amd friendly. The room has comfortable beds with a small kitchenette and some utensils to do light cooking or reheating. FYI, no air conditioning. We didn't miss it terribly though. A breakfast buffet with a good selection is served every morning.... 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.
