“Truly AMAZING Hotel”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

What more can I stay, wonderful hotel, topped off with truly conscientious staff members. In which, nothing was too much effort. Cleanliness was out of the top draw, being made to fell at home. The room was truly perfect, with enough space to relax and unwind, with modern decor, and the creature comforts I experience at home which included the modern appliances like; Dishwasher, Kettle, Microwave and DAB Digital Radio/Alarm. There was a vast range to choose from at breakfast both continental and full cooked varieties with the availability to have as much as what was wanted. Will definitely be returning, and I am sure we will have the same great time as before... wishing I never had to leave.

Room Tip: All rooms are modern, with all the key things needed for a great stay.

Stayed in the hotel in January for 1 night for visitinh Edinburgh over the weekend.

We arrived relatively early and to be honest did not expect to be able to check in that early. However, at 11 o'clock we got to our room which had been upgraded as well! The room itself was beyond perfect - very spacious, comy bed, microwave, fridge, tv, some dishes and being on the 5th floor a great view as well.
Everything about the room was just spotless and not more you could as for and every dealing with the staff was very pleasant and enjoyable. At one occasion we were queuing in the reception to ask for some directions to the centre and a girl from the bar came to see if she could help so that we would not have to wait. I found it to be an excellent example of good service.
Had some drinks in the bar in the evening, which were quite pricey but to be honest, it's just regular hotel prices.
The free breakfast was a nice touch as well with ample of choice and possibility to take a coffee on the go which was defenitely necessary on a rather chilly morning.

Only regret is that we only stayed for one night.

Would higly recommend this hotel and hopefully will stay again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Edinburgh Residence Inn. The location is about a 10-minute walk from the Royal Mile and the property has just about everything you could want in terms of comfort. We arrived early from an overnight flight and were checked into a room immediately--much appreciated. The staff was fantastic and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They told us personally how much they like working there and it shows. The breakfast was fine with a good selection of various foods for the diverse international crowd. We had a two-bed queen room, which was large and comfortable. Overall, a great stay. We will definitely return whenever we visit Edinburgh.

The hotel is located 15 minutes walk away from the main train station at Edinburgh Waverley and central attractions. A black cab should cost no more than £5.

We arrived early before the check-in time but the staff were very amenable and checked us in all the same.

We'd booked a superior room and it was very spacious. Upon entry we noticed a well equipped kitchen. The room had a sofa and an armchair. The LG TV was top quality and was mounted on a moveable bracket so you could see from wherever you sat.

The bathroom/WC area was small but the shower was very good. I did find a long hair stuck on the wall of the shower which I never like to see.

The breakfast in the morning was very good with all the usual buffet options. The seating area isn't extensive and we were told it could get quite busy at certain times depending on the occupancy. However, we were seated on both mornings so no problems there. Even if it had been full, we would have been able to take the breakfast up to our room.

The staff were excellent all round and very conscientious. For instance, on our first night, we were peckish late on in the evening and the staff were kind enough to pop a pizza in to the oven and bring it up to our room with nachos and salad. Housekeeping are not available in the afternoon so leave early if you want your room to be cleaned. However, Konstantina Vava was really helpful in replenishing toileteries and towels.

I would highly recommend this hotel to other users.

Room Tip: I always prefer a room on one of the highest floors.

We have just returned from a weekend break with friends in Edinburgh. The hotel staff were very helpful and couldnt do enough for you. It was our first time visiting Edinburgh and we would definitely stay in the Residence Inn again. There was a wide selection of options for breakfast and all specific dietary requirements were met.

Very quiet and functional, great location, amenable and welcoming staff, new and clean, and good value for money. The standard of the hotel matches the standard of the Foster + Partners development that it forms part of. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

I generally left this hotel with good impression. Very American styled hotel, offering the must stuff but doesn't add nor offer more than that. Very spacious. Comfy bed and nice clean kitchen, but toilet/shower was rather disappointing. Breakfast was okay but not excellent. Location was a bit of a bummer though. One bad thing is that I stayed in 1st floor and could smell the breakfast cooking in the kitchen (on the ground floor), which woke me up.

Room Tip: Nothing wrong about hotel. If you look for the value and quiet hotel, this is the right one.
