About Residence Inn by Marriott Edinburgh

Aparthotel with free breakfast, short walk from Royal Mile

Right by University

In the Quartermile development a 5-minute stroll from the University of Edinburgh, Residence Inn Edinburgh enjoys a central yet quiet location. The Royal Mile, the Grassmarket, the Festival Theatre, and the National Museum of Scotland are all within easy reach. The Meadows park is a 7-minute walk south.

Edinburgh Castle

You can marvel at the Crown Jewels and other treasures at Edinburgh Castle, a 15-minute walk, or drive 15 minutes to visit the UK's only giant pandas at Edinburgh Zoo. A hike up Arthur's Seat, with panoramic views from the top, is a classic Edinburgh experience.

Free full breakfast

You can choose between a free continental or hot breakfast, or opt for Grab-N-Go if you’re eager to head out. This modern hotel also offers a 24-hour fitness center and parking; the lobby bar is great for an evening tipple or light meal.

Kitchenettes, free WiFi

Spacious studios and suites have soundproof floor-to-ceiling windows and feature free WiFi, iPod® docks, and flat-screen TVs. You’ll have your own kitchenette with a dishwasher, microwave, and toaster, and the free grocery-delivery service will keep your fridge stocked up.

Huge rooms, furnished to a high standard. Wide selection for breakfast and a 15 minutes walk from the castle and train station so in a good location. Thank you

Poor customer relations
Was unable to make it due to the terrible snowy weather. Was disappointed that no effort was made to reschedule or compensate for an impossible situation. Just happy to take our money.
