“A Perfect Stay!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

This comfortable suite apartment was perfect for our 6-day stay in Edinburgh! Prior to arrival, Christopher contacted us to see if we had any special needs they could prepare for. Once there, we were warmly greeted and the suite was beautiful. The staples the hotel provided allowed us to not have to worry about breakfast at all during the stay. Charlie and Chris were so helpful and immediately made us feel at home! Chris and Charlie were simply the best but there are also plenty of other staff members that excelled at their jobs and made us feel welcome. The young lady at the front desk helped us mail our postcards and arranged taxi service to the airport (that came early for us!). Chris and Charlie's recommendations for where to go and what to do helped us to have the best possible experience! Be sure to visit with each of them for their "must dos". We cannot rave enough about this hotel! The location was perfect to walk down to Grassmarket as well as a short walk from Greyfriar's Bobby location.
A note: there are plenty of bars/adult night life places immediately in the vicinity of this hotel. However, we were NEVER bothered by late night noises nor late night guests coming in. The bed, linens, and pillows were so comfortable and hugged us as we laid down; after wonderful, adventurous days with lots of walking up and down hills, we certainly got plenty of great sleep!
We would definitely stay here again and will strongly recommend this location to any friends and family!

This was my second stay at the Knights Residence, both times have only been one night bookings but the service and friendly welcome we received each time made us feel right at home.We arrived at 12.50 lunch time and our apartment was ready so we could have a cup of tea and biscuits before going into the city. Christopher on reception remembered me from my last visit in December which was nice. We booked a one bedroom apartment but had been allocated a two bedroomed one and it was lovely. Very comfortable, a lounge with comfy couch & chairs, spotlessly clean and I really cant praise this place enough.This was half the price of a 5 star hotel yet has so much more in my opinion..bath robes & slippers, toiletries, everything for a good breakfast included. You could pop to Sainsburys just round the corner if you wanted any extras. Just 5 min walk from Grassmarket area with lots of pubs, places to eat & about 20 mins walk from the city centre. Knights is a gem and im glad I found it.

A favourite in Edinburgh, we have stayed here twice before and will stay again next time we come to Scotland.

Check in is a breeze, with kind and helpful office/reception staff. Always there to lend a hand and help with your bags.

The self contained rooms were wonderful, it almost feels like you are moving into your own flat, which gives this place the appeal.

Stocked kitchen with not only pots, plates and cutlery but also breakfast to last a couple of days and a full loaf of bread! Dish washer and washer/dryer to complete the feel.

Located in the old part of Edinburgh, short walking distance to the castle, town and pubs, cafés, coffee houses galore close at hand.

We love The Knights Residence and will most definitely stay here again next time we are in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs for weekend nights as the town gets a little noisy and people walk (sing, laugh, danc...

A group of 6 of us stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment whilst we were in Edinburgh for a leaving doo. We were met by the manager Christopher who was excellent, very friendly, informative and showed us all the essentials in the apartment. As for the apartment, all I can say is wow. It was stunning. The decor was very stylish, rooms and beds very comfortable. Very clean and the bread and fresh orange provided was very welcome in the morning. I have never been compelled to write a review before but this hotel was absolutely top notch. If you are considering this hotel, go for it, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed three nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment was comfortable with everything you could need. The kitchen was well equipped. There was a dishwasher and washing machine. Tablets were provided for both.

The apartments are well located for walking around Edinburgh and are approx 20 minutes from the airport by taxi. We didn't hear any noise from the surrounding bars and there was never any trouble walking past them at night.

We were welcomed warmly on our arrival and shown to our apartment. Everything was explained. There was a welcome basket of bread, jams, biscuits, cereals, tea, coffee and milk.

Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in these apartments many time over the last 3 years and never been disappointed by the standard When you arrive at the apartment you are always greeted by the management team who will always get you anything you need to make your day more comfortable. All the apartments have a welcome basket complete with all you need for a breakfast. The apartments are well situated only a 5min walk from princess street and 2 min from the station

Room Tip: All apartments are to a very high standard
