I have stayed at the Edinburgh Residence twice. I like the quiet location, the items of the rooms/apartments and the staff are very helpful. It does feel a bit like what a first time visitor to Edinburgh would expect - lots of wood and heavy furniture. The decor could do with an update and some of the bathroom fixtures are...

We've stayed here twice. Lovely staff - they're always willing to help with anything. A beautiful building, with some huge rooms, and a perfect location. It's on a very quiet street, but it's less than 10 minutes walk from the West End of Princes Street. Finally, a great breakfast - plenty of choice and served in your own room!

The best location, the best staff, the best breakfast and the best value! Great for the rugby at Murrayfield, Great for town centre. Can leave car in carpark all day even after checking out for free, given the parking/traffic in Edinburgh then this is perfect! Great Scottish breakfast. Very private, no restaurant or bar but everything private in your room....

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edinburgh Residence is a collection of 29 elegant, 5-star hotel suites through three adjoining Victorian houses in the West End of Edinburgh. Categorized as 'Classic,' 'Grand' and 'Town House,' the 5-star suites are more like apartments, with magnificent proportions that really allow you to spread out and make yourself at home. In some, the sitting rooms are adjoining, and in others they are self-contained. ... more   less
