I am told that this is the only Residence Inn in the EU. Rooms are relatively large for Europe, but found mine to be a little tired (stains here and there on the furniture). The location is adjacent to the University of Edinburgh so you can walk to the Uni parks, also easily to all of the main attractions in... More

We stayed her for four days on our recent trip to Scotland with my in laws. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The lobby is small , typical European space style. The breakfast and lobby food options are great , especially for a residence inn. The rooms are so spacious and have small kitchenette's , great TV and sitting... More

We were in Europe for 3 weeks and the Residence Inn Edinburgh gets my vote as my favorite. It was new, the room and bathroom were perfectly set up to make our 3 night stay very comfortable. The location was very good, and a quiet area but close to all we wanted to see. The breakfast every morning was well... More

It's fine, a typical RI. The location really can't be beat, it's within 5-10 minute walk from the Royal Mile, but in a quiet area, so you really get the best of both worlds. It's a safe area, near the college - not sure why everyone said it was difficult to find. If they don't know about the RI just... More

We stayed there for two nights in August 2014, and it was a great way to start a vacation. The hotel is very conveniently located --- within easy walking distance of much of Edinburgh. There are nearby buses, too. The hotel is quite new, spacious and clean. The staff is helpful and accommodating. Breakfast is included and is excellent. The... More

This is very clean and comfortable and a good touch having a kitchenette in the room. Staff were friendly. A bit annoying that we requested an early check in which was not honoured also I found the breakfast area a bit cramped but these are monir gripes. We parked the car next door overnight which cost £16, a bit pricey.... More

We spent 3 nights at the hotel and had a great experience. The location is near Edinburgh university and the royal mile was maybe 5 blocks away. The breakfast layout is great and they have free laundry machines on-site. They also have a small bar with a variety of options. The rooms are spacious and have a small kitchen. The... More

Location good, walk to everywhere, university area very low key and pleasant, Starbucks and convenience market close by. Good breakfast, friendly and knowledgeable staff, with Marriott on-line checkin, room was ready 4 hours before standard checkin time. Very comfortable room. Will stay there if we are fortunate to visit Edinburgh again.

Residence Inn is in the Old Town, a 15 minute walk away from the Royal Mile, close to many of Edinburgh's main attractions, yet it feels separated from the noise and bustle of the city. The hotel is in a cul de sac buffered from busy main streets by buildings - a mix of new and refurbished, pedestrian walkways and... More
