First time at The Chester Residence but will not be the last, booked the penthouse and was not disappointed, suite was beautiful and well appointed. All usual refinements plus special thoughtful touches. The service was exceptional and room service for drinks and breakfast delivered to your door added to the experience. The apartments are perfectly located a mile from the... More

Incredibly spacious. Immaculately clean. Exceedingly polite. Exceptional service. All that was needed to put it into the stratosphere is a later check out on a Sunday (11am is a bit early) and Scottish produce please.

This is an extremely pleasant place to stay, especially if having the space in which to entertain friends, relatives or business colleagues is important to you. The staff are extremely engaging and considerate. The absence of a restaurant for breakfast / dinner was a miss and would round off the package. The continental breakfast delivered to our apartment was absolutely... More

Professionals happy to do it right, rooms modern and clean, breakfast delicious, location in the middle of everything, even DVDs if you want to stay in. There is so much to see and do you will want to stay longer!

The Chester Residence is a fantastic place to stay - one of the best I have ever used. Instead of a room, and shared common areas as for a hotel, you are left to your own devices in your own apartment, but with all the benefits you would expect from a good hotel - friendly staff who couldn't do more...

We arrived on a Saturday morning with much anticipation after reading the reviews. What a lovely welcome we received. Lovely staff uniforms - very smart in their kilts! Room not ready but we were very early so we left our bags and headed out armed with maps and restaurant recommendations provided by the front of house staff. After a lovely... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods 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 theaters 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.
