Very comfortable, spacious and well-furnished. These are highend one bedroom condominiums with excellent hotel services. The general manager, Mark Lambson, pays close attention, is extremely helpful and is as fine a hotelier as you will find anywhere in the world. In sum, superb.

The apartment is on a residential area but very close by to all necessary shops. Very clean and the furnitures are very good quality. We arrived on 23rd and stayed for 2 nights and we were upgraded to 8/1 apartment which has tv in the bathroom, tv in the bedroom and tv in the living room. Love the fact that... More

Having rarely, if ever stayed in 5* accommodation I had no idea what to expect from the Chester Residence. Having spotted a great late deal on a room, my girlfriend and I had the most amazing time. We were in the penthouse apartment with views of the castle from the huge bathroom. A spacious living room and fully equipped kitchen... More

Fantastic huge room with kitchen, dinning, and fab service for cheap in comparison to the small roomed 5 star hotels like balmoral. Breaki is a bit of a small charge but great. Do not hesitate here. You will not be disappointed.

Now and again you come across a place that exceeds expectation, the sort of place that makes you write a review here. The Chester Residence is at a place beyond those, I'd go so far as to say these people are onto something very special. Just off the noise and mainstream (8 min stroll from Princes St) in a quiet...

Located just a bit outside city center, this accomodation offers all you need. Modern interior, very spacious, friendly staff. Very clean and looked after. No restaurant but a bar. By feet it takes you about 15 minutes to get to Princess street. Its a bit pricy. Although you get a lot, its upper range.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in July to celebrate our anniversary. The stay was amazing, the staff were very helpful and friendly as soon as you enter the building to book in at the reception. Everything was spotless! It was also a great location for access to city centre. All areas of the city centre are... More

We just returned from a stay at The Chester Residence - it is an amazing place - beautifully designed large apartments with everything you need. It is centrally located, only a few minutes walk from central George street but is located in a nice and quiet area. The service and hospitality at the place is absolutely top class - definitely...

I was at Chester for 2 nights before going North to The Highlands. I liked it so much that when I came back I had to spend one more night in Edinburgh and I decided to stop again there. The apartments are gourgious, spectacular and full of details. Location is just 2 blocks from city center. It is much worth... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in Edinburgh so wanted enough space to kick back and relax. The Chester Residence was everything we could have asked for and more. The beautifully furnished suite was on a residential street at the edge of New Town, close to the end of Princes Street and an easy 15-20 minute walk to the... More
