“Elegant Suites in a great location”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

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 Old Town and the Royal Mile. Lots of nice restaurants close by. Staying in a renovated Georgian House definitely added to our experience of Edinburgh.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor in the Annex building on Chester Street and it was very quiet. We coul...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on Tuesday 8th July to celebrate our anniversary. The stay was absolutely amazing, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the place was spotless! It was also great for location and the upgrade to the Owner's Residence and glass of complimentary champagne that was brought to our door made the whole experience even better! Would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our time at The Chester Residence. The apartment was larger than expected and the space was appreciated, especially after spending the previous few days in London in a cramped hotel. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

My sister and I stayed here recently and loved the comfort of having an apartment, and a kitchen, in a quiet location. It was my fault for not noticing that it is a basement space- although they have done a wonderful job of making it very bright, with 3 walk out doors. Beautiful garden space, comfortable beds, and a to-die for shower. Unfortunately, the 3 year old above us ran around until midnight, as it was summer and very light. We both have kids and get it, but it was impossible to sleep, even with ear plugs. The apartment owners had asked the family above to be mindful of noise, but... You might want to ask who is staying above you.

My husband & I stayed at the Chester Residence for 3 incredible nights to celebrate getting married. The apartment was amazing, perfect for some much needed relaxation post wedding-craziness! The staff were incredible helpful, no request too small, & we couldn't vault the apartment. Location was great for exploring Edinburgh & definitely planning a return visit to both the city & the Chester Residence. Thank you.

Large, expansive, clean apartments on a quiet street, within walking of Edinburgh's castle. Wonderful people, friendly, accessible, responsive, and practical. Amazing! We would recommend it to anyone.
