Cannot recommend highly enough, great location, super service and apartments really well equipped. Special mention to Christopher on reception who managed to locate a charger for my friend who had lost her bag. Will definitely stay again

Enjoyed our stay in this apartment so much we extended our stay. Warm, inviting, and a wonderful staff. I would recommend this property to anyone staying in Edinburgh, and I plan on coming back in the future.

Please don't even consider a hotel when for only a little more you can stay in absolute comfort. Great location, perfect for a family or a few couples traveling together. Definitely check out the Blue Blazer Pub just down the street too!

Our family stayed for 3 nights and were exceptionally pleased with the room (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms), staff, location and complimentary breakfast basket (assortment of cereals, teas, coffee, bread, milk, apple juice, orange juice, hot chocolate, cookies). Highly recommend :)

The apartment was quite comfortable. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. There were two full bathrooms, large updated kitchen and a separate dining room. There is an attached secure parking lot which is a rare find in Edinburgh since parking is scarce. Maid service every day and the kitchen came with fresh milk, butter, bread, coffee, tea and sugar.... More

We used the Knights Residence for a combined business and pleasure trip over the weekend and were very impressed. The level of service and attention to detail is excellent, a personalised letter introducing you to the hotel and even your name on the apartment door :-D.

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.
