Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Only stayed for the night but was a good stay. Felt slightly intimidated with how grand it was but aside from that, couldn't fault it. Very traditional Scottish decoration which isn't exactly to my personal taste but could appreciate it. The in room breakfast was phenomenal. Only a 10 minute walk to the centre. Would definitely recommend staying in this...

I don't understand why this isn't higher up in the ranking for Edinburgh!! We booked this last minute. The free parking (which is very unusual in Edinburgh) and proximity to the city centre were why it stood out to us! Good reviews also helped. When we arrived we were informed that we had been upgraded to a townhouse suite. This...

I had bought tickets for my husband to go to the Challenge Cup at Murrayfield for Christmas and wanted a hotel to make the weekend extra special - we were not disappointed. From the moment we checked in, we were given a warm welcome, with a mountain of local knowledge shared before being taken to our suite. (No.25) The suite...

The Edinburgh Residence property is an amazing piece of real estate tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, close to the busy bustling Princes St. We walked by the Princes St Gardens, while taking a shortcut to the Edinburgh Castle via the walkway that goes by the Scottish National Gallery. The rooms are grand, the bathrooms large, the sitting area big,...

Fantastic stay at the Edinburgh Residence. Brilliant staff were warm, welcoming and made us feel at ease on arrival. Harryson, Stefano and Gerinomo got us checked in, helped us to the room and gave us a great start in the city on given we weren't here long. Also they managed to point out some great places to eat especially as...

Everything was perfect. Beautiful building, beautiful room. The service was second to none. I booked with booking.com and had breakfast included. The breakfast was fantastic. I requested an upstairs room using booking.com and was given a below ground floor one with no view. I would probably book using their website next time might get an upstairs room? The price was...

An absolutely wonderful place to stay if you're visiting Edinburgh. Not like a usual hotel chain, The Edinburgh Residence is a row of townhouses adapted to accommodate guests and their needs. It has just about 30 rooms, it's own parking and excellent in-room facilities. The staff is warm and very helpful and will be quick to guide you around the...

This place was probably the best place I have EVER stayed at, and I have travelled a lot! We were greeted at check in with prosecco by an extremely polite and helpful young man who gave us a map and explained about all the attractions recommended. He escorted us to our apartment and I still thought we were in the...

We arrived at the front of the Hotel and we were met by a staff member. Michael gave directions to the car park and met us there. He escorted us to reception where we swiftly signed in. He then showed us to our room carrying all the bags. Gave us information and instructions relating to bread fast and facilities of...

Charming and attentive staff. From check in to check out perfect service. Room was spacious clean and very comfortable. Bathroom spacious and well equipped. Breakfasts of a very high quality. Room service punctual. Location of hotel peaceful but not far from things. I would definitely stay here again.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edinburgh Residence is a collection of 29 elegant, 5-star hotel suites through three adjoining Victorian houses in the West End of Edinburgh. Categorized as 'Classic,' 'Grand' and 'Town House,' the 5-star suites are more like apartments, with magnificent proportions that really allow you to spread out and make yourself at home. In some, the sitting rooms are adjoining, and in others they are self-contained. ... more   less
