Amazing staff, nothing is too much trouble. Beautiful luxurious rooms with every amenity possible. Great location, a pleasant 15 minute walk from princes street. Would recommend no end as will definitely be returning. Thank you for an amazing stay.

I came to Edinburgh for one night for business and found The Chester Residence spectacular. Every staff member went above and beyond the call of duty to make the stay pleasurable. The room was incredible and I'll be rushing back. 5 stars. Flawless.

Check previous from me. I have little time for Tripadvisor these days. What I write is totally unbiased.

We looked for good quality and central location, this place kept trending. Booked for 2 nights - never done EDI before. The concept is superb, an apartment/hotel. Quality, fit and finish is superb. The apartment is equipped with every comfort, audio, visual etc. The bed is gloriously comfortable and huge. Kitchen has enough to get you going. Simple breakfast served to your door, if you want more, it is 5 min walk.
Great restaurants and bars within 20 min walk.
That's it - book !!

My wife and I just went to Edinburgh for our 5-year anniversary, and had an absolutely perfect time at the Chester Residence. We had a 1-bedroom apartment on the first floor and it was incredibly spacious and had all the amenities you would want from a hotel or apartment residence. Centrally located for the most part, you can walk to Old Town or the Castle if you want, but a cab is always no more than 5 mins away (which is especially nice when the whether is bad, which is often). The staff are very helpful, and we enjoyed everyone we interacted with there. You can even rent movies for free if you have a night in. If you're going to Scotland, I would highly recommend staying at the Chester Residence. When we go back, it won't really be a question where we stay.

We stayed for one week in a one bedroom apartment as I had to go to Edinburgh on business, far better than any hotel, although it is run as a professional hotel should be. Impeccably clean, courteous staff and decorated to a very high standard. Don't even bother to look anywhere else, this is the place to stay if you need to be in town for a few days

We stayed for two nights in a luxury one bed apartment.The apartment was very comfortable with a huge living room with full length windows. The bedroom in comparison was fairly small but the bed was comfortable.
We had very little contact with hotel staff but the little we had was positive
In terms of location and comfort and price this is a place that is very hard to beat and we have no hesitation in recommending it to others

Room Tip: We stayed in 8/3 and were not disappointed.I think it is probably best to pay the extra and stay in...

Great apartment, with lots of original features but full of all mod cons.
Central heating was very efficient and the staff could not do enough to make our two nights stay a delight. We would come and stay again without hesitation.
