Reviewed 8 July 2013

Hotel is within a five to ten minute walk of the royal mile and Edinburugh castle with other attractions close by. Hotel was clean but the rooms were very warm with no air con just a portable fan. There was a good selection of hot and cold food for breakfast and the staff were very friendly.

Spent a weekend here in early June. Great location, near most of Edinburgh's attractions. Check in was quick and efficient. We upgraded to a superior room on the 7th floor. We could just glimpse a view of the castle. The room was smart and clean with a large shower cubicle. The breakfast area is small and gets a bit tight for space during peak times. The breakfast selection was good and the staff kept replenishing very efficiently.

This hotel is really geared up for business travellers.

The corridors were extremely hot, there is only one lift and the breakfast area is too small.
The staff were friendly and performed their duties well. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to the 7th floor

I had one night. This place is clean, right next to the meadows and if you want to walk away from tourist traffic, this is it. One extra, I love to run outside and am no fan of treadmills. To step out and run the meadows is a great bonus.

It is our 3rd night here and it's been a warm day in Edinburgh. The temps on the 5th floor are also warm. They do give you a rotating fan in your room, but it doesn't help much. Ugh!
The staff are very courteous and kind. The bartender was great. Can't fault them at all.
Rooms are okay because relatively new, but can see wear already. They may have chosen more durable materials for kitchenette. Also, toilet/shower is quite small. Would prefer smaller kitchen area and bigger bath area.
Location is good.

In spite of the trouble we had getting there (the taxi driver insisted that the Residence Inn had only apartments and did not book short stays), the hotel was great. The staff was good, the location was great. No AC, but as one reviewer said "really, how hot does it get in Edinburgh?"
I imagine it would be loud when construction is going on, but we weren't bothered at all. The location was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see, good restaurants, and the included breakfast was good.

My partner and I stayed here for 8 nights on a recent trip to Edinburgh. It is a nice, new modern hotel. The rooms are a nice size and very modern. It could be a bit stuffy in the room but the windows do open. The breakfast provided in the morning was basic but very good. The hotel is located within an easy walk to the Royal Mile and all the tourist attractions. We would certainly stay there again.

We stayed here for one night in summer. It got quite warm without air-conditioning (didn't seem to be any in the room. The staff were polite and helpful. The breakfast was very basic.

Great position though, with only a short walk into town.
