We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in beautiful Edinburgh. This hotel was beautiful, new, convenient and well staffed! The area was just slightly out of city center, but still convenient. The free breakfast was delicious with good selection and abundance. There was a laundry facility which was also complementary (including detergent). The room was spacious, comfortable, nice toiletries, and... More

As soon as we arrived at this hotel we received a very, warm welcome from Paul at Reception. We were immediately upgraded to a suite at no extra cost. Our room was ready for 12.30pm which was also an added bonus. The room was amazing, modern and spotlessly clean. By chance we bumped into Paul later that afternoon when he... More

This hotel was outstanding. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The morning breakfast was terrific and had a great selection. The room was lovely and comfortable. Great to have a refrigerator and microwave. Small Dishwasher, toaster and hot water heater. No stovetop. We stayed for 5 nights. The bed was very comfortable. Good to remember that air conditioning is... More

Colin R, General Manager at Residence Inn Edinburgh, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to convey your comments on your recent stay at the Residence Inn, Edinburgh. I am delighted for you that you got to enjoy the Edinburgh Festival in unusually warm weather for this time of the year, but Scotland’s typical climate was probably the reason for not installing air conditioning in the hotel which was...

We stayed here for a weekend break in August. We had a suite which was very spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff were very helpful and polite, and we enjoyed the buffet breakfast provided, which included something to suit everyone. Our only complaint would be that our suite was far too warm. A desk fan was provided, but we... More

We stayed here in August 2015 whilst visiting the Fringe Festival. The location was excellent for the venues we were visiting. This hotel is located in a new complex of hotels, cafes and flats and is near to the city centre. The reception staff were helpful and welcoming and our room was available to check into early. The room was... More

Stayed for my birthday and it was fab! Lovely spacious apartment with fab facilities, Amazing friendly staff and great location with only a ten minute walk to the town centre! Not a great view but when you are so near to the centre you don't need it, the only downside is the cost of the parking and its confusing layout,... More

Stayed recently at this hotel for more than a week. Like previous reviewers, we had a good experience. Some minor complaints, but here are my pros/cons on this property: Pros: -Fairly new property, so has the new feel and everything is functional -Windows open nicely (and safely) for plenty of outside fresh air -Generally friendly staff, though they did seem...

I stayed two nights during the The Open in St Andrews (expensive; peak season) using some points I had accumulated over the years. The staff were remarkably helpful! They really went over and above to accommodate me despite being a points-based guess. Included with the room was a complimentary breakfast buffet in the lobby that had some of the best,... 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.
