The very best thing about this place is the INCREDIBLY friendly and helpful front desk managers. Charlie greeted us, showed us around the apartment and how to work everything, and was completely service-oriented. I felt like I was home the minute I met him. The place was large--two bedrooms and two baths with big family room and small kitchen that...

Very helpful staff, and we were pleased with our stay at Knight Resident. You won't need a car (though we had a rental, which we left parked for our 3 days). Easy to self cater and kids were really happy with the little details. Highly recommend.

Very well located. Just off Lauriston Place and about 20 mins walk (5 minutes by bus) to the Edinburgh Castle & the Royal Mile. The place is clean, though the rooms are a little small with low ceilings. The receptionists Christopher and Charlie are top class, friendly, helpful and eager to please. However the infrastructure in the place could improve...

Perfect location, spacious apartments and good service! We have stayed here several times and we are always pleased! Last time we had a 3 bedroom apartment with a living room, kitchen and dining room. The apartment was big enough for several dinner guests.

My family of 5 was visiting Edinburgh for 4 days and booked Knights Residence. The location was about 15mins ride from Waverley Station by taxi. Taxi ride was about GBP8 and typical taxis in Edinburgh could cater for 5 passengers. The apartment check-in service was professional. We booked a 2-bedroom apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean. Bedrooms were good. Living...

We rented a two bedroom apartment for our family of 4 in July, and were very happy with our experience. The apartment was well appointed, spacious and clean, and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They even included a welcome package upon arrival of bread, milk, butter, cereal and juices, so that we could have breakfast the next morning...

As I've noted in other reviews, Patty and I have stayed in what I call "apartment-hotels" (hotels with rooms or suites that include enough kitchen facilities to actually permit cooking and serving meals) in a number of countries on three continents. Although there are places we have "loved" more than Knights Residence for all kinds of sentimental reasons, Knights Residence...

The apartment was nice and well appointed. The staff was extremely kind and professional.

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.
