The Chester Residence

The Chester Residence

*****

Stone steps and iron railings may suggest a vintage-style stay awaits, but inside The Chester Residence lie sleek, modern apartments with clean lines, shades-of-taupe furnishings and a geek’s arsenal of gadgets. Jewel-bright accessories and softly shaded lamps invite you to feel at home; a 24/7 concierge and attentive room service prompt laziness. Edinburgh’s main drag, Princes Street, provides on-your-doorstep shops, sights and sustenance.

Highlights:

  • Huge apartments with chef-pleasing kitchens

    Near food and frivolity in central New Town

    Knowledgable staff intent on five-star service

Smith extra

A bottle of wine and, if you stay three nights or more, a luxury hamper

In the know

Also need to know:

All kitchens feature an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Transfer from/to the airport (£30 each way) or rail station (£15) can be booked.Chauffeured cars, personal shoppers and in-room beauty treatments beckon to be booked.

Packing tips:

An apron and cookbook to help you whip up culinary romance in the kitchen. For browsing the web beyond your phone, bring your tablet or laptop; it's the only item the tech-savvy rooms don't include. If you've forgotten an engaging tome, each room has a collection of Scottish-native Ian Rankin's books.

Dress code:

Home-from-home cosy – perhaps upgrading your pyjamas to chic loungewear, cocoon-like knits and cashmere shawls.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

What is it that makes Edinburgh cab drivers so jocular? (Listen, I cued you up for that ‘jock’ pun.) Seriously, every time I’ve visited the Scottish capital the cabbies are so darned friendly and chatty I wonder whether there’s something in the water. (In case you’re curious, a cursory Google of ‘in the Edinburgh water’ reveals only a mention of some icky multi-syllabic bacteria and the council denying its presence, so no, that’s not it. And don’t take on board that cryptosomethingdium drivel, it doesn’t exactly act as a mood-enhancer – and trust me, this city and hotel does nothing but deser
