We had a lovely stay at the Knight Residence. The apartment was excellent - a good balance between homely and stylish. But even better was the staff - they were courteous, knowledgable, incredibly helpful and always in a cheery mood! Couldn't have asked for better and we will definitely be recommending these apartments.

Christopher's welcome was extremely warm. A helpful and happy greeting prefaced a charming family stay. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Beds a tad lumpy but overall to be heartily recommended!

We have stayed in lots of different apartments in Edinburgh. The knight Residence is in our opinion the best so far. Great location, friendly staff and a well equipped spotlessly clean apartment. We will definitely be back. Well done.

I regularly stay on Business and always find the accommodation clean and tidy. Much prefer staying here than a hotel.

I stayed here for one night since I couldn't book my main Edinburgh hotel for that night. I ended up wishing I had booked at Knight Residence for the entire stay!

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.
