Meet the Team - Jasmin Swan
You may recognise Jasmin from her regular DJ sets in venues across the city.
When she’s not spinning the decks, Jasmin is checking in guests and keeping our Facebook and Twitter pages updated with all the latest news here at The Chester Residence. Originally from Germany, Jasmin joined us in November last year as a receptionist and says one of the best things about her job is getting to chat to the guests.
She says: “I like doing the evening shifts when I look after most of the check-ins, recommend restaurants and book taxis, anything guests need really, while enjoying a good chat with them.
“I love hearing all the different stories that people tell you. Where they are from, what brings them to Edinburgh, and what they are going to do once they leave us again. It’s also always nice to see the guests’ reactions when I show them to their apartment for the first time - their excitement!”
Before leaving Germany, Jasmin was an administration assistant, a retail assistant and an account manager but she most enjoys working in hotels.
“There is no such thing as a normal day at work here, every day is different,” she says.
“As for bugbears? There aren’t any, really. The obvious one would be rude guests, but our guests are really sweet, so I can’t complain!”
In her spare time, Jasmin is a true social butterfly.
She adds: “I’m a pretty sociable person, so when I’m not at home talking to my cat, then I’m out and about in town. I DJ regularly, run a social club and also like to go to gigs. I’m also a keen baker and make a mean cheesecake.”
