Quality Serviced Accommodation
Bonjour Residences was founded by Fan Zhang and Piotr Kacki, two property lovers residing in Paris who have decided in 2020 to conquer the hospitality market in Edinburgh and Glasgow while adding their very own French touch.
Our mission is to provide our guests in Edinburgh with quality serviced accommodation and an outstanding guest experience, so they get to enjoy their stay in Edinburgh, Glasgow and the rest of Scotland as much as possible without putting up with small hotel rooms.
All our units are uniquely decorated with love and have been designed with a particular focus on comfort and convenience.
We're still small, but we have big ambitions. Our vision for the coming years is to become the preferred accommodation provider in Edinburgh, Glasgow and the rest of Scotland for tourists and corporates alike. Follow us on social media to follow our progress.
As a small family business, Bonjour Residences is here to help you find the right property for your short stay accommodation needs. Please get in touch on +44 020 8242 4702 if you require accommodation and our team will sort you out.

Lewis Gilbride. Operations Manager.
Lewis was born and brought up in the Stirling area and is one of five siblings. A talented sportsman, he excelled at tennis, football and rugby.
From an early age, Lewis dreamed of running his own business. Moving to Edinburgh to start university in 2017, inavertedly presented him with that opportunity. Studying Business and Entrepreneurship, the course gave students the chance to work in industry with an established business for a year. Lewis saw this as a golden opportunity and decided to start his own business.
He says: “Too often landlords are let down by their cleaners, we feel that by offering a property management service with our own in-house cleaning service that we stand out in the Edinburgh market and are more attractive to landlords and short term let operators”.
