A roomy apartment that felt like home almost instantly! The staff are attentive to every request and the breakfast was delivered on time with delicious food. ( croissants were wonderful!) Be prepared to climb stairs. And the location involves some walking to get to the City Center. ( good exercise for all) Just a wonderful trip! Thank you Chester Residence!

Excellent size

This hotel is a gem. It is a little bit of a walk to get to the main road but not bad and it is big with a bedroom kitchen bathroom and large living room. Much larger than hotel room. You feel like you actually live in town. Only complaint is the beds were a little uncomfortable. But staff and service were great.

Beautiful and spacious suite with attentive staff.

We were blown away by the place! It's a beautifully decorated apartment with attention to every detail. In addition, the staff was warm, helpful, personable yet very professional. The location made it easy to walk to many pints of interest as well as to shopping and restaurants.
