Stayed for one night, lovely top floor apartment. Comfortable bed, lovely bathroom fully fitted and functioning kitchen/sitting room. Set in a very quiet location but relatively easy to walk into central Edinburgh. Not many pubs or restaurants in the immediate vicinity which means it is really residential and quiet. But lots of restaurants and café's within a 10 to 15...

This is the best apartment that we had ever stayed. The rooms were huge and nicely decorated. The hotel manager, Sabrina, gave us a very detail introduction of the city and the various attractions. We enjoyed our trip very much and will definitely return to Chester Residence the next time we are in Edinburgh.

We arrived in Edinburgh early in the morning, having flown overnight, and we called The Residence to see if perhaps we could check in early and catch a few winks before setting out to explore Edinburgh and were happily surprised at how agreeable the staff was to our request. From that point our stay was perfect. The suite was amazing,...

I had a one night stay in 9 Chester Street (flat4) which was lovely. It is in the basement so you get a tiny outside patio with it. The flat is spacious with modern clean and luxurious decor. For breakfast I had a waffle, toast, fresh orange and corn flakes. All good. The staff were helpful and pleasant. I'd happily...

The staff were friendly, helpful and considerate. The location is good for the New Town and easy enough for a walk to the old town. There is a good range of varied places to eat within walking distance. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. All in all, very good value.

Booked the two bedroom apartment here for the first time last Saturday (12/11/16). Very impressive! Great location allowing us to walk to the various bars, restaurants etc. The fully equipped kitchen was superb with just about everything you would have to hand in your own kitchen.

We took a two room apartment at Chester residence. What a delight. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, the bathrooms were very smart and the living/dining/kitchen was very comfortable and well thought-out. The most enormous TV was a bonus. Staff are very helpful and friendly too. Highly recommended.

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.
