The Owners residence was an absolute stunning apartment and definitely worth the extra you pay for the privilege. The fully loaded fridge is a MUST for any guest and if anyone i know... More

Always enjoy staying at Chester Residence (third stay this time). Great team, easy location, spacious and comfortable rooms that have everything you need for home away from home. This will always be the place I stop in Edinburgh. Can't think of much to improve.

Had a ground floor apt number 9/4 right under reception. No fireplace what suited us much. A heating is a bit slow but pretty much hot at the end.... More
