The Chester Residence is exceptional in every way. The staff are very warm and friendly and made us feel welcome from the minute we walked through the front door. I'd especially like to thank Josh, who works at the front desk, and Sabrina,who showed us to our apartment, for being so helpful and informative and starting our stay on a...

We spent two nights in this great location. We really enjoyed being within walking distance of Old Town and all the shops and restaurants. The staff was very attentive and helpful and the rooms were incredible! It was like having our own luxury apartment in the heart of the city.

Dear Bunky415, Thank you for leaving such a lovely review. I am so happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us.

My wife and I had been planning a trip to Edinburgh for years, and The Chester Residence made this dream destination of ours an even better experience than we imagined.

My husband and I stayed here for one night with my mother-in-law, which made this apartment style setup perfect. We booked mostly on the word of the Trip Advisor reviews, and we were so glad we did.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights earlier this month. We had a penthouse apartment which provided distant views of the Castle. The Chester Residence is well located in a quiet part of the New Town. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Castle.

I stayed at the Chester Residence on two separate occasions during our trip since we had a tour scheduled in between our stays in Edinburgh.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods 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 theatres 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.

“As this is Georgian Edinburgh, the ceilings are hugely high - so this means long staircases. You might prefer a ground-level apartment.”
