After travelling around the Scottish countryside and staying in some quirky sorts of accommodation, it was a welcoming change to spend a few nights at the RI. The hotel is located in Edinburgh's modern precinct - the Quartermile, which attracts a hive of activity amongst the city's young business professionals and university students. Adjacent to the hotel you'll find a... More

I arrived early in the morning after my international flight and I had a short wait while they got my feather free room available. They graciously invited me to join in the breakfast, and although the breakfast area is crowded I did not see anyone go without seating. We were there in July during the University's graduation and they handled... More

Have stayed 3 nights in the Residence Inn in Juni 2014 in an 1 Bedroom Suite. The rooms are modern and nice, with a small kitchen in the living room. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Car parking is around the corner for an acceptable price per night. Breakfast was good but more in an american way than Scotish. The hotel... More

We had a very large one bedroom suite with 2 TV's (important conflict avoider). Rooms are huge, very clean, comfy bed. Rooms are a little spartan, no dining table or cooktop stove like in all other RI's. Don't understand some previous comments on the windows. We were on 5th floor & the windows opened wide and kept the room cool... More

We just returned from Edinburgh after spending a week at the Residence Inn. The hotel is located in a newly built complex in the Quartermile area tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city . The hotel is within walking distance of the castle, the Royal Mile, and close to the Museum of Scotland. Waverly station is about... More

My husband and I stayed 6 nights at Residence Inn. Every member of the staff was friendly and caring. The servers at breakfast made an extra effort to ask us about our stay and give us suggestions of places to go and things to do. Very sweet. Our suite was perfectly comfortable. The location was also very nice. An easy... More

The hotel is quite nice, located quite close to the tourist destinations, plus it's new and modern. However, there were several issues with the hotel. First of all, there is no air conditioning (at least I could not fine one in my room). As the rooms have huge glass windows, which are not opening, it's very hot inside, because of... More

This was a nice hotel except for one major flaw. They had no air conditioning and we were told they had no plans to put it in bc the need for it is only a couple months out of the year. Caution: even though it may be nice outside-the inside is very hot because only 1st & 2nd floor windows... More

I have stayed here on business and for a couple of weekends for the last 9 months, and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Every single member of staff remembers your name and makes you feel valued, whatever the length of stay or the bizarre things you request! And when my husband joins me, he gets the same treatment. The rooms... More
