I love this place! It is calm and quiet, the service is next to none, the building so beautiful and the views spectacular yet it is so close to the city. The suites are beautifully decorated and maintained and I look forward to visiting again.

This well established time share now owned mostly by HAPIMAG a very successful Swiss time ownership company is a wonderful place to enjoy all the city and surrounding area has to offer. The service is impeccable and the meals both in house and surrounding restaurants are excellent. Parking is a bit tight but very convenient.

We have stayed here a couple of times over the last ten years and have always had great service from the staff. The location is great for a trip to Edinburgh, we have been with our own car and when just using taxi's & buses - both are equally convenient. The rooms are large with fabulous views over Dean Village.... More

The ER is converted old house on the edge of the new town. The floors we were on I could only describe as somewhat labyrinthine (I think there are 5 turns and 4 doors between the stairs and our suite). Each suite seems to be unique (our son's suite was very different than ours), but large and comfortable. It has... More

Lovely room and the service is great!! However, for the first time ever in 20 years of staying here there was a lot of loud noise at about 9.10-9.25am caused by the cleaners speaking /shouting very loudly when cleaning the room opposite. This only happened once but unfortunately it had to happen on the morning we had decided to have... More

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
