By far, this is the 1st apartment that I have stayed has the homely feel. The management was very thoughtful to provide food items as we arrived pretty late on our first night. The staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay of 3 nights. Highly recommended to stay at The Knight Residence Edinburgh by Mansley Serviced Apartment! :-)

We had never been in an apartment before. This was really nice introduction in the middle of the Grassmerre old town part of Edinburgh . It can be a bit noisy on the road when windows are open at night the Scottish love singing at 1.00 am on the road! Nicely proportioned. We liked the free video library. And the...

I took a chance booking this hotel and only wished I could have stayed longer. It was so very nice and homey. The staff was beyond helpful and the site was very secure. I only wish there were things to do within close walking distance for a single female traveler. I didn't feel safe doing that so took a cab....

We enjoyed 4 days staying at The Knight Residence just behind the Edinburgh Castle. To our surprise everything was within walking distance and the open top tour buses stopped just around the corner! The apartment was an ideal base and came fully equipped. It was very clean, attended to daily and very safe with locks at the Residence's front door...

We really like "apartment hotels", especially if we are staying more than a a day or two. We like the extra space but more importantly the freedom gained. We can eat whatever and whenever we please, feeling much as if we were at home. Usually we don't get daily room cleaning (although we did at The Knight Residence), but that...

Property is located in the "old city" near all important sights / sites. All the comforts of home and a wonderful experience provided by the staff. Clean, quiet, convenient, spacious rooms, welcome package, parking and very reasonable. We would return in a heartbeat.

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.
