Just spent two nights at the Chester Residence and was very impressed. Our room was outstanding (we were in the mews apartment 7/5) the staff were superb and could not do enough for us. I was concerned having read all the previous reviews, that I would be disappointed but the reverse was true. I recommend anyone looking for a short... More

We booked this at the last minute and found the staff excellent, the room amazing and just an all round great experience. We had a flight to catch at 6am and the staff made sure we still left with a breakfast. Intend to take my partner back to Edinburgh in the near future on a weekend break and for sure... More

My husband, myself and my daughter stayed at The Chester Residence in July. Beautiful apartment. We were well taken care of by the staff. The breakfast was delicious. We were able to walk to all of the sites of Edinburgh. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

My fiancé and I stayed at the chester residence for a long weekend (29th-31st august). I had arranged the trip as a surprise for his 30th birthday. This is one of the nicest and most luxurious places we have ever stayed! We were both so impressed by the standard of the apartment. We stayed in the owners residence which is... More

The rooms here are huge and have everything you could possibly want. I could of actually lived here for a month. The staff were great. The hotel doesnt have a lift so bear that in mind, and it doesn't have a restaurant although there are plenty of good ones in walking distance. It's about a 5 minute walk from Princes... More

The Chester Residence is a luxury hotel located just a few blocks from the Old Town in a very quiet residential area. If you want to be in the middle of the city bustle, this may not be for you, but it was perfect for us. The rooms are huge - apartments, really. You could easily move in for an... More

I've never been so eager to grant a 5 rating until now. We could not have been more pleased, other than being able to stay a bit longer. Here is what you should know. 1) Check-in/out 3 PM/ 12 PM, respectively. These are not your average hotel rooms, so it takes some time clean. 2) About the hotel This is... More

Was a lovely suite. Although beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and the staff really helpful we felt it a little soulless. Again even though the apartment living area was enormous I came back in to the bedroom the following morning to find my wife sat on the floor, surrounded by luggage in front of the full length wardrobe mirror in the...
