                  Everything is excellent. The location is quaint and safe. The staff are all polite and helpful, they help us book all the local tours and restaurants. But the hotel isn’t air conditioned, that’s the only set back I find. Note though most hotels/ pubs/ public facilities, etc in town don’t have it either.

We work hard to ensure all of our guests get the most of their visit to Edinburgh by informing them of all tours, restaurants and insider secrets about the city. It is unfortunately, not common to have air conditioning in facilities throughout Edinburgh. We can offer fans to all guests if they feel it is required, should you visit again please ask at reception and we will do our best to accomodate your requests. We do hope you would like to stay again. Best regards, The Edinburgh Residence team

                  Great propriety”

                  We picked this hotel based on cost-benefit, looking for a great experience (clean, good service and comfortable). Located in a quiet neighbourhood, less than 10 minutes from the city centre, it's very convenient and peaceful. The fact of not having a restaurant was a plus for us, since breakfast was served in or room! Staff very very kind, always trying to help. We felt like being home. Huge room! We will definitively come back if in Edinburgh again.

                  Fabulous place to stay. ”

                  A really lovely place to stay, only a 10 minute walk to Princes/Rose Street and all that they have to offer. We were fortunate to get the room on a deal price so good value. The full price (well over twice what we paid) would stop us returning. The in suite breakfast and evening meal were delicious. Will definitely be looking for “offers” so that we can return.

                  The suites were nice, and we got a free upgrade to a bigger suite, which was great. The suite was quite clean, though not spotless. The food was hit and miss. We had a good breakfast experience, but an appalling dinner experience, which was refunded. The staff were great; very helpful and friendly. Overall, great value for money.

                  In Edinburgh for a small private function at the Arthur Conan Doyle centre we booked an overnight stay but wish it had been longer! The small classic suite was well appointed with a most comfortable bed and a large bathroom with spa bath and separate shower. Wonderfully plump pillows , large fluffy bath towels and robes, one of the biggest plus points for me was FRESH milk in the fridge! This was our second time at the Edinburgh Residence and hopefully will not be the last. Staff were extremely helpful and charming. A great place to stay......
