    Superb location, very quiet and our classic suite felt like a 'home away from home'. Breakfast, which was delivered to our room, was outstanding. Overall I would highly recommend The Edinburgh Residence for location, quality, comfort, privacy and the staff are second to none.

    Outstanding staff - they really took care of us and did everything to make our visit as pleasant as possible. Location was okay - about 10 min walk to shopping area, 20 minute walk to Royal Mile and 25-30 min walk to Edinburgh Castle, A major benefit was the on site parking - the best location and price for that option. Over all a great place to relax and enjoy your time in Edinburgh - I would definitely visit this hotel again!

    Internet was painfully slow - this is not a place that you could do business as the wireless internet was restrictive. There was a public computer for use, but if your are looking for a business hotel foe use with your own computer this is not it.

    Nice

    The rooms were lovely and spacious.

    The hotel was far too hot. The heating in the rooms could not be turned off and we stayed during a warm day. The hotel provided us with a fan, but we were still awake early in the morning due to the heat. Not good when we were staying to get sleep after having a baby!

    We really enjoyed our stay at The Edinburgh Residence. Whether it came at a time we really needed it or it was properly fantastic, I`m veering towards the latter. Very scottish, panelled walls, tiled floors. Stay here, you will absolutely not regret it.

    Excellent location. Nice quiet area of Edinburgh, but only a short walk to Princes Street. Beautiful rooms, great staff. Free, private car park this close to the city centre is a real bonus! Would recommend to anyone I know.

    Everything about the Residence was first class from the time we arrived, even though it was way before the check in time the room was ready and they let us in which was very much appriciated after our flight. The room was superb, very clean with a massive bathroom and a great view and as for the breakfast, which is served in your room, was excellent with a great choice. All of the hotel staff made us very wellcome and nothing was too much troble for them.

    Efficient and responsive service to facility problems in our room followed by a massive discount of 50% for this. The discount was not invited and came as a pleasant surprise.
