                        Very good apartment hotel near the Grassmarket area, will stay there again

                        We had a fantastic welcome from the concierge on duty Chrs and were very pleased with the accommodation facilities and location.

                        The staff were very friendly, and explained how to operate everything in the apartment. There was a welcome basket with breakfast treats, and some milk in the fridge. The apartment was very clean and within an easy walking distance to everything.

                        The ensuite shower was slightly cramped and the shower nozzle didn't function correctly. Very minor things and we would stay here again.

                        Service is great! Apartment is well maintained and comfortable.

                        We used water heater in the shower and the water pressure is very low which made shower difficult. They dont have hot and cold water sharing pipe in the bathroom and this made washing tough.

                        The best and most helpful staff we have ever experienced throughout our many vacations.

                        After over a week of staying in just one room it was wonderful to have an apartment with 3 rooms! We were extremely impressed by the well equiped kitchen and the starter pack - that sustained us for the whole stay. We also appreciated the small but very welcome living room and the second TV in the bedroom. The washing machine and dryer were also a welcome bonus. The staff took the time to show us the various machines in the unit and how to use them. That was very helpful. The location was excellent - within walking distance to the castle and the restaurant/ pub are of Grass Market. The lift from the car park was great as was the access to the video library. I would thorougly recommend a stay at the Knights Residence - Thank you

                        Great location for the Centre and excellent facilities.

                        It was great to have the kitchen and living room. We had plenty of space. The kitchen came stocked with some things (cereal, cookies, milk) so we could have breakfast the first day without running to the store. The DVD/video collection was also very good - nice for the kids to watch a movie before bed.

                        The faucets - even though it was a single faucet you could feel the difference between the hot and cold water. Also, at the end of the block are some "gentlemen's clubs." We walked quickly past them but our 9-year old now knows what a strip bar is. No one ever bothered us though.

                        Large living space, kitchen very useful. Quiet location

                        Love the very spacious and comfortable flat, super friendly and helpful staff and the Breakfast hamper we got. The Kitchen is really well equipped (with dish towels, fairy liquid, dish washer soap, washing powder, sponges...)

                        Just a bit of a shame that there is no separate toilette (specially in a three bedroom with only two bathrooms...).
