We arrived after midnight on the Friday and the staff member was very friendly and accommodating. The apartment was perfect, big rooms, two lovely bathrooms, comfy bed and classy decor. Location was great for us, only having 2 nights in the city we crammed a lot in. Staff were easy going too, we were late to check out and they... More

We stayed here for two nights in a one bedroom deluxe apartment. It is a wonderful place to stay, the location is excellent (quiet but easy walking distance to the central city), the service is great and the apartment itself is as nice as anywhere we have stayed.

A truly luxurious base to have if you are visiting Edinburgh. The apartments are top notch. No expense is spared. Wonderful location in the West End. Superb efficient and professional staff. I cannot praise this place enough. Parking is located 3 minutes away.

Simply put, it's like your own luxury apartment walking distance to town. I've traveled all over the world and stay at wonderful hotels and I'd highly recommend this for family, couples or business travel. Outstanding value for money.

I found the Chester residence a great option whilst recently in Edinburgh. By myself, but usually travelling with a family of six I just loved the space and quality of this apartment style accommodation. Would definitely be first choice if we travel to Edinburgh in the future. Service was low-touch but pleasant, helpful and prompt when required

At The Chester Residence you get the great service of a top class hotel while at the same time still feeling like you never left the comfort of your own home. This is not one of those hotel where the photos on the Internet fail to show reality. What you see is what you get. It's the real deal. It's... More

Great apartment that pretty much ruined the rest of the trip in UK as no other apartment was anywhere close to it in terms of the layout and the luxury of the place. The living room was very spacey with a very modern kitchen. Having two bathrooms with two bedrooms was very convenient. The staff was extremely helpful. Because of... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartments. We found our place very cozy and comfortable. Everything was clean and the staff were extremely nice. Big LIKE from us. Location wise it's a bit off the center but not too much. 5-7 minutes in a cab or about 20 -30 minutes walk to the castle and old town.

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.
