We have just returned from a 3 night city break to Edinburgh and stayed at the Residence Inn. The hotel is in a good location and is just a 5/10 minute walk down some steps to the grass market area, castle and Princes Street. The hotel offers a 20% discount for guests using the NCP underground car park, which is very nearby and handy if you've hired a car like we did.
We booked a standard room and it was very modern and clean. The room had a queen bed, as well as a double sofa bed, several chairs, desk, safe and a kitchenette. It was really handy to have a fridge, microwave and toaster. The only negative for us was the bathroom; the handbasin is outside of the bathroom ( perhaps this is an American design) , the bathroom also had no heating/towel rail which meant it was always cold and the most annoying thing was the sliding bathroom door which did not shut properly and kept opening. Other people have commented on the large glass windows and lack of privacy etc, we didnt really find this to be a problem and liked the light and open feel. The hotel provides nets and thick curtains to block out prying eyes if it bothers you. The breakfast was rather cramped, but the food on offer was good the usual pastries/cereal/fruit and a hot selection. If you are here for pleasure its best to come down a little later after the city slickers have left for the day.
We would return to this hotel as it offered good value for money, modern fittings , good location and the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
