My mother and I took a girls trip to Scotland last month. When I reserve a hotel in Europe I look for 3 things, LOCATION, comp breakfast, and high ratings on trip advisor. This place had everything and was in a really nice and quiet area. I can't say enough positives about the location. It is located right next to... More

Second time to stay at this great property for five days. Very predictable service, beautiful contemporary looking clean rooms, fantastic breakfast every morning, fantastic location close to everything, parking included (although it is annoying to have to return the access card every day). Smiling faces and "umbrellas" available for customers to borrow :). Will definitively return during next work week.... More

GREAT location, GREAT service overall. I had read the reviews about the lack of air conditioning, but I figured in September we would not have an issue with heat. The weather was absolutely gorgeous in early September when we were there. However, this hotel gets hot. We were on the top floor opposite the side with afternoon sun and our... More

The hotel is clean, modern, there is free wifi & a good breakfast. It is walking distance to a lot of good restaurants or you can call a cab quickly if you one. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

The Residence Inn is a bit like a bag of Revels chocolates. Much like the toffee or the biscuit flavour, there are parts that are great. But, much like the coffee flavour, there are parts that spoil the experience and take you by surprise. A newly built establishment in a regenerated area, the Residence Inn sits in a quiet part...

We stayed one night at the Residence Inn, Quartermile, to extend a stay in Edinburgh. It was a pleasant stay in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The bathroom facilities were a little strangely configured. I assume this was property converted from a previously different use? The breakfast was nice with plenty of hot... More

I would recommend a stay at the Residence Inn Edinburgh. It has modern decor and is very clean and bright. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood next to the university but is only a few blocks from the Royal Mile thus making is a perfect location. To the train station and hop on hop off bus stop it... More
