Staff were so pleasant and welcoming. The location of the apartments is perfect! Everything on your doorstep and only minutes walk to The Grass Market, Royal Mile and Princes Street. The apartment was lovely - coffee, bread, milk, cereals and jams being provided was a nice touch. We stayed as a family of 4 and would most definitely be looking...

The Knight Residence is "The Place" to stay when you visit Edinburgh. It's so closed to the heart of the old town, main attractions, great restaurants, bars at grassmarket, tours and all the other interesting things. It's about 15 minutes walk give or take. What makes the stay even more perfect is the staffs are great especially Chris. He welcomed...

I booked these apartments for a large group from Ireland. We were occupying several apartments. I was mostly dealing with Kevin, who was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The people staying in each apartment were able to pay themselves, which was way easier than me having to group all the money together. When we arrived, a member of...

Having stayed there several times, we always appreciate the high comfort of the appartments, as well as very supporting staff all the time. Also the location close to the main sights and good restaurants in walking distance is a great advantage.

We had a short stay in these apartments for a birthday weekend. Perfect location and very central to everything. We were made very welcome from the minute we arrived. The owners have really thought of everything from the complimentary food basket on arrival to the toiletries and extensive range of DVDs and CDs available for use. Perfect if you're there...

We stayed here as a couple and we felt very welcome. They had personalised apartment rooms that were fully furnished, continental breakfast prepared, the venue was walking distance to various restaurants and attractions, and the staff were always obliging and willing to offer help, no matter what time it was. The only issue is that we should have stayed longer.

We stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment for three nights and really enjoyed it. The building itself is easy to find, the street is quiet and the apartment spacious and extremely clean. The bed is worth a mention - wonderfully comfortable! Chris, Colin and the reception team are brilliant - a friendly welcome and a fount of knowledge........with smiles all day...

Came with a group of friends (7) for a long weekend. The location is great, loads of restaurants all around and only a few minutes walk down to Princes Street. The staff was great, allowing a late check-in, providing breakfast for us the first morning, and all around very helpful. The facilites have everything you need and the beds are...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
