“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 1 July 2011

We stayed here for four nights with our 10 month old baby and it was absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately our baby wasn't very well behaved, but we never felt this was a problem, unlike in some other 5* hotels. Also, it being an apartment, we could put our toots to bed and still relax in the (humongous) livingroom.
Only a 5 minute walk from the shops in Princess Street and never a problem to get a taxi if you want to go further afield.
Hope to return again soon!!

We stayed for 3 nights over the Easter Weekend and have nothign but good things to say about the Chester Residence.
From the moment we were met at check in to the monet we checked out, everything was Fantastic.
We booked into the Penthouse apartment, which while a bit more expensive, I'd have to say is well worth the extra cost (and compared to somewhere like London or many other major EU cities is actually VERY cheap).
Everything is finished to an exceptionally hight standard, especially the bathroom which was amazing.
Location wise it's only a short stroll to the main shopping streets and Bars/Restaurants. and Edinburgh castle is also a pretty easy walk.
Next time in Edinburgh I have no doubt where I'll stay!

My (new) wife and I stayed here for two nights after our wedding. We booked the penthouse apartment and were not disappointed. The suite was immaculate, a good size and very well equipped.

The best thing about this place though is the staff. Friendly, attentive and considerate - nothing appeared to be too much trouble for them.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it completely.

We stayed at one of the Mews appartments with our family and were stunned by the outstanding value for money. Huge appartment, top end equipment, very stylish interior and all in an excellent condition. Staff were very helpful, especially Ian who always offered a helping hand. We will definitely stay at the Residence should we return to Edinburgh one day.

I just wish there was a Hotel like this everywhere we stay.
We had one of the larger basement apartments, huge space well equipped and easy to walk to everywhere we needed to go.
Also followed the take Indian food recommendations - also great!

We look forward to or return visit.

Everything about this place was great, lovley tioletries, fresh bread, milk butter, eggs yoghurt and marmalade on arrival and bread replenished during our three day stay. could not fault anything. would highley reccommend and we will be back.

Absolutely perfect. We had a penthouse suite - with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Fantastic views of the castle from the bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. A short walk to the centre of Edinburgh but nice and peaceful, A real home from home. No complaints at all - sheer luxury - and at a very reasonable price. Perfect

Room Tip: We were in a penthouse suite
