        Short Mid-Week Stay”

        Had a wonderful mid week three night stay at The Knight Residence in Edinburgh. The apartments are excellently situated for the castle, Princes Street, and The Haymarket with all just being a few minutes walk away. All the staff were very friendly and willing to please. A big shout out goes to Chris who helped a frustrated teen access his Netflix account on the TV in the room. Crisis avoided! There are reviews on TripAdvisor that complain about the strip clubs at the bottom of the street. There are three, all with friendly bouncers outside and they were really a non issue, and are not a reason not to stay here.

All our special requests were granted like early check-in, high floor and late check-out 👍🏻 Surrounding was clean, neat and safe. Close proximity with restaurants such as cafes, chinese cuisine, nandos, subway, italian, and salinsbury local 😊👍🏻 Staff were friendly, accomodating and ready to assist guests. Tour leaflets and guides are readily available in the reception and inside the appartment room. They also provide complimentary goodie basket which includes asstd cereals, cookings, jam spreads, loaf bread, fruit juices and fresh milk 👏👏👏 room is A+ clean and neat 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 We had a wonderful time and stay in Knights Residences and will definitely stay again on our next visit to Edinburgh 😊

        Spacious and practical ”

        Our family loved it here. The staff were kind and accommodating, while the facilities were so useful (especially for cooking). The location is a literal stone's throw away from Sainsbury's, and if you're in the mood for a good long walk in the excellent weather (cold and sunny), then you can walk all the way from the Edinburgh Castle down to the Royal Mile around the Waverley Train Station, back up the Royal Mile, down towards Grassmarket [take Granny's Green Steps], and walk back up a short distance to the Knight Residence). It will be a bit of a challenge to get to other apartments, especially if you have big luggage, but it'll be alright. This place is definitely worth it.

        Good location, apartment floor plan, car park

        We enjoyed our stay at Knights Residence at the beginning of our trip to Scotland. The hotel has a convenient and reasonably priced car park, very helpful for us since we had a car in order to visit other parts of the country later in the trip. We received a very warm welcome from Chris, the manager on duty. The hotel provides some basics on arrival - bread, milk, tea, coffee - very thoughtful! Tesco is around the corner. The unit had a nice apartment style layout, with a nice assortment of entertainment and full kitchen (the reason for my 5 rating). The location is very convenient, there are good restaurants nearby, and it's an easy walk to get to Edinburg Castle. All in all this hotel is a good value, the rooms are impeccably clean and the location is convenient. We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night, on Friday night the neighborhood was noisy due to some nearby bars, this was the only negative. I highly recommend Knights Residence and would stay again.

        Large apartment in Excellent location”

        We were a family of 5 with 3 adult children and stayed in Apartment 13/9. The apartment was a 2 bedroom apartment with a large family room with pull-out sofa bed and nicely stocked kitchen. The apartment was clean with plenty of windows providing natural light. The location was ideal, minutes walk away from the Grassmarket, where there are many wonderful restaurants and pubs, and Edinburgh Castle which stands at the beginning of the Royal Mile in Old town. For those with a car, the complex has available parking for a fee. The front desk staff were warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. The apartment was serviced daily. Ideal for anyone (couple or family) who doesn't need a traditional hotel with restaurant, bar, room service, health club, etc. and prefers to experience the local flavor.

        Perfect Serviced Flats in Edinburgh”

        Location,Parking,Accommodation,Staff,

        We have used the Knight Residence for about 10 years now and would not consider staying anywhere else in Edinburgh. Lovely serviced flats that are comfortable and very well fitted out, nice touch is the basic food pack in the kitchen i.e. milk, bread, butter, preserves, cereals, tea, coffee etc., which means whenever you arrive you can have a drink and and something to eat. Secure parking is a real bonus as the car can be left somewhere safe. It's an easy walk to all the sights and the shops. The staff are second to none and the way you are looked after is superb.

        BEST QUALITY APARTMENT HOTEL IN EDINBURGH”

        Comfort, cleanliness, ease of stay

        This hotel was the utmost comfort. I actually decided to spend half a day inside the hotel, even in an amazing city like edinburgh. My last stay was innFraser suites, on the royal mile, and tho the location was superb and the staff were efficient, it cant compare to the apartments in knighhts residence. LOVED the check in manager who helped us, Christopher. Really made us feel welcome, told us all we needed to know and then gave us privacy throughout our stay. The only negatives are the location is near bars and so noise is present BUT inside the apartment with windows closed, you can hardly hear it. The bedrooms in my flat were at the back of the building so i slept with the window open and the only sound i heard was at the church in the early sunday morning, but that didnt bother me at all. Really fabulous place, if you dont mind walking a bit to the main sites.

        Apartment was beautiful with everything you could want including a "handy traveller" mobile device with helpful info and tips about Edinburgh. I also appreciated the welcome pack which included tasty breakfast items. The staff were lovely too and we had the added bonus of being allocated two apartments on the same floor after our larger apartment was double booked. I would definitely stay here again and book through Agoda who gave us a heavily discounted price.

All bedroom is fully furnished and heater in every room. The kitchen is also awesome which have everything we need to cook and also free bread and milk for our breakfast. There are also a dining room which you can use to eat with your big family. Besides the perfect facilities, the service from the staff is also good. Very heartwarming which represent Scottish hospitality. Overall this is a perfect stay for us and will be back to stay here again in the future.
