Recent guest reviews

It was just one of those days. The hotel is gorgeous and our apartment was impeccable... until the electricity went off, followed by the hot water heater going out. While the staff did their best to make amends and comped us a bit for the inconvenience, one just can't deny that this put a bit of a damper on the experience. Lovely place, lovely staff, things just happen sometimes and you have to roll with it.

It was a great experience. comfortable setting, helpful staff. great facility. We enjoyed the stay. It was a great base for our exploring Edinburg.

I could go on all day about how wonderful this apartment was. It was clean, roomy, and had a great view! We had arrived in Edinburgh about 10 am. After getting our laugage and taking the tram we were near downtown about 12:30. We did not want to hall our luggage around so thought we could just check it with the apartments concierge service. We arrive at about 1:30pm and the very helpful and pleasant Rebecca greated us. To our wonderful surprise our room was ready and The Chester Residence allowed us to check in. It really made arriving in Edinburgh easy and pleasant. This apartment staff was as amazing as the room was! Like I said I could go on and on about our wonderful experience here! Definitely will book this location every time we are in Edinburgh

This is a quietly elegant residence. Minimal pretense and no obsequious staff making a nusance of themselves. The setting is distinguished and the staff friendly and professional. My apartment was large, luxurous and well appointed. If you need the fuss that 5 star experiences can sometimes generate, this is not the place for you. But if quality and peace are your thing, you'll find both in abundance. Nothing but good things to say -- can't wait until my return!

My friend and I spent 5 nights at the Chester Residence and felt like we were living in a home rather than a hotel. The place was spacious with a living room and fully-equipped kitchen, nice bathroom, and huge bedroom. Everything we needed was provided and ready. All the staff were very helpful and kind. They helped with transportation, restaurant recommendation and reservation, and whatever our needs were. The location of the apartment was in a residential area but very close to restaurants, shops, and the main tourist areas. We walked pretty much everywhere. Everything was no more than 15-20 minutes walk. I highly recommend the stay at the Chester Residence. If I get a chance to visit Edinburgh again, I will definitely come back to the Chester Residence.

This property is spacious and beautiful. No detail is overlooked. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

When I checked in, I was early, but it was not a problem. I was upgraded to a 2 BR/2BA apartment with a fully equipped kitchen. Modern, updated and beautiful. I was sorry that I wasn't able to stay longer!
