We spent 2 nights here exploring Edinburgh. The staff could not be more helpful and our apartment was enormous. A great location on a quiet elegant street in the new town. Comfortable bed, good bathroom, well fitted kitchen, not that we used it much, and...More

I actually thought the apartment I stayed at at the Chester Residence was a little too big! Very little to criticize. The heat controls were too difficult for me to figure out. The kitchen had a sort of musty odor, leading me to keep the...More

We stayed here for 4 nights while on a family break away, and this was a great find. The hotel is well located and offer well appointed rooms. Everything is in vicinity, and this is an ideal place to stay in while visiting this city.

While a tad away from Princess Street, The Chester Residence was remarkable from the attention of the staff to the incredibly wonderful apartments with all the ammendities. We hated to leave. We would have loved to have lived there year round. A treat!

Stayed in one of the 2 bed mews apartments. The apartment was stunning! So spacious and felt luxurious and very cosy for a winter stay! Lovely helpful staff and a fantastic location. We had a great stay thank you!

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

We had no. Issues with WiFi, although we were not using it a lot of the time as we were out during the day.

I would have thought this place is child friendly. There are no lifts however and you should ask for a lower floor room. It is very accessible to the city and moving with a young child would be easy if staying here.
