Big rooms, most of it wasted empty space. No proper bathroom and no privacy. Tiny toilet space. Wash basin area in small alcove with no door, right next to bed, not acceptable. Small 'double' bed. Room was very hot with one wall all glass looking straight into another building that was also all glass. Had to keep curtains closed to... More

Clean comfortable quiet hotel that's close enough to walk to everything but is tucked away in a little street adjacent to the University of Edinburgh. Starbucks and a Sainsbury grocery store just around the corner. Room had a mini fridge and a combo microwave/oven that took me a few minutes to figure out but worked great once I did!

This hotel is located in the Quartermile. When we stayed, there was quite a bit of construction, but it was easy to find and park. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. It was a short walk from Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile.

The hotel location is accessible by walking to the Royal Mile, restaurants, museums and other services. Staff very helpful and couldn't be more cordial for assisting our stay. We were met by reception staff who informed us that although the room was not "completely ready" but realizing we had flown in early morning, we were more than welcome to use... More

This hotel has everything! I was here for ten days with my wife, while she attended a conference. It is a very new building in a new, fresh development. It is near The Meadow, for a refreshing walk. It is near groceries, coffee shops and a small bookstore. Above all, it is a short walk from the Royal Mile, where... More

Best hotel room for a family. Lots of space and really comfortable. In an area still being developed but we didn't mind. Cafes and restaurants on your doorstep. Peaceful but a short walk to the Royal Mile. Excellent service and friendly staff.

This is a great hotel with a fabulous staff. We had a "corner" room that was huge for a European hotel and even large by American standards. The area is still close to the old town, but just far enough away to be quiet. Like all Resident Inns breakfast is included, a huge savings in Europe. You must try the... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn Edinburgh as part of a one night stay in the city. From the moment we came through the door we were welcomed with open arms and made to feel at home. The hotel itself is modern and clean and the rooms are large with great amenities (perfect as an option for a business trip... More

Spent 2 nights in this hotel and from the moment we walked in both the staff and the hotel exceeding expectations. Great size rooms. 10 minute walk from the town but worked well for us. Would definitely stay here again and great little coffee shop and supermarket 2 mins away.

The hotel seems to be in a new building; however there is no central air to speak of so we has the windows open and a fan running(Yes we had the best weather ever on our trip). The hotel is modern, the rooms decorated nicely and the service was very good. Breakfast was very busy in the morning and the... 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.
