              Good value”

              The Palmerston Suites are good value for money. We were lucky enough to get a great deal for three nights. We didn’t spend much time inside other than to sleep. The facilities are basic, and decor can be a little mismatched. The bathroom in room 16 was without a fan or a window, and the shower either was freezing cold or scorching hot. Our room was located on the top floor and it was very very hot and stuffy - great that 2 fans and an AC machine were already provided. However, when walking upstairs one night I noticed a radiator on in the hallway - it was 20 degrees outside! Overall, pretty basic, in need of a little bit more love, some more sensible members of staff who don’t use central heating in July and lastly, showers that work! Despite the downfalls this apartment is in a fantastic location for the city, with transport links 200 yards along the road. The bed was also very comfortable, which was a great bonus.

              Pot Luck on Junior Suite”

              Stayed here a few times in Junior suites but it’s pot luck if you get the upper floor rooms or basement. The basement room was a strange layout (No.4) with an angular wall in the “compact” bedroom and a fitted “wardrobe” just about 12inches deep. Also strange having to walk through the kitchen to the shower/toilet. Upper floor rooms (No.11 & 14) were a little more spacious and conventional shape/layout with full sized wardrobe. Etc. Aside from this, rooms were comfortable and clean with the kitchenette a bonus to prepare a light breakfast or maybe a ready meal. Electric hob and assortment of pans utensils there if you felt inclined to prepare a small meal. Short walk from Haymarket for main transport links and convenience stores.

              Everything that I needed”

              The room which I had was everything that I needed. Clean, comfortable and with all he amenities that you could shake a stick at. The room was large with a nice bed and well laid out. Although this room was all of these things, I'm basing this on the price in which I paid. I say this as I've since looked to book a few weeks from when I was staying and the price was exponentially more expensive and in which case it simply wasn't worth the extra cost.

              Nice, spacious, comfortable well lit room. No lift. One wall of my room was next to the Backpackers hotel next door. and they do live music in the evening which was definitely audible. Hotel does not provide breakfast but staff told me I could get breakfast at the hotel next door and gave me a card for a discount. However when I arrived for breakfast the staff there told me they no longer provide food for outsiders. Reception closes at 8PM, with a number to call if you arrive after hours for check in. When I returned at about 9:30PM, a family with baby was locked outside and said that no one had answered the phone number for more than an hour. I don't know if they were ever able to check in.

              1) central ,location; 2) excellent room quality; 3) helpful staff

              We had a very good stay at Palmerston. Only drawback is lack of parking space, but staff was helpful to direct us to nearby parking facilities. I would recommend to all travelers to just leave the car at home when visiting Edinburgh. The City council has made traffic navigation very difficult and with an overload of buses, it's very inconvenient to have a car in town.

              An Excellent Choice !”

              Location. Room Size and Facilities. Incredibly Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff.

              An excellent choice of hotel. Only 5 - minutes walking from Edinburg Haymarket Rail Station. The staff is among the friendliest and most knowledgeable we've ever encountered. Rooms are large, impeccably clean, very well fitted, including a fully equipped small kitchen. We arrived at 8:30 a.m. and staff went out of its way to accomodate us. A very impressive beginning to our stay ! One thing must be clear, though. More than a hotel, Palmerston Suites is a residence. Which is why the rooms have small kitchens, but it has no bar or restaurant on the premises, and of course, no room service. But really good places to eat are just minutes away, and the staff have great recommendations. My wife and I look forward to staying there again -- the sooner the better !

              These apartments are close to Haymarket which is good for eating and drinking out and about 30 minutes walk to the castle. If you’re travelling with heavy baggage this property has stairs and no lift. If driving parking is on street heavily regulated and expensive.

              So hot!”

              First impressions were rather good. The main entrance was bright and welcoming. The room was clean and tidy and had all the facilities we could need. The thing that let it down was that it was so hot in the room. There was an air conditioner but that was extremely noisy so you had the choice-no sleep because it’s too hot or no sleep because it’s too noisy! From what I saw of the staff (during check in) they were fine. However that was the only time we saw anyone. It’s ok but we probably wouldn’t stay again.

              Palmerston Apartments in Edinburgh ”

              The apartments were handily located and pretty easy to find. Receptionist was friendly and helpful with providing information. Pub next door handy for a tired traveller. Elegant Terrace House exterior. The interiors were a mixed bag. Very tired carpet; bedside table lamps too big and light output so minimal as to be more like a night light. Had problems with the sliding doors of the wardrobe but managed to fix it. Rooms were quite sound proof however the doors seemed to have an inordinate amount of space letting in light from the landing outside. Annoyingly the door closers had been it seems poorly adjusted throughout resulting in a lot of door slamming during the night from travellers coming in st all hours. That is easily fixed and should be prioritised. I was out all day so did not spend much time in the apartment. Overall I would stay there again.

              We found the Palmerstone Suites perfect to explore Edinburgh, in terms of: - location: a short walk to all key sightseeing areas (we walked everywhere during our weekend trip) - comfort: even though we were in the basement, there was a window to outside and the room was big enough for 2, along with a small kitchen and bathroom

              Very good value for money”

              I booked the junior suite and believe it was very good value for money. The receptionist was very accommodating and helpful throughout. The room is more or less standard size of a hotel room, however, it comes with a kitchen which is seperate from the sleeping area. As I spent over a week in Edinburgh it was very convenient to be able to store food in the fridge and cook some small dishes, rather than having to head out for every meal. The Haymarket station is within 5-8 minutes walking distance, depending on one's walking pace. The 100 Airlink bus shuttles 24\7 to and from the airport and takes about 25 minutes. Very handy! The city centre is also within walking distance and takes about 10 - 15 minutes by foot, which is well wort it as along the route you get to see some beautiful architecture and get a sense of the city vibe. I really enjoyed my stay and would book it again if my work commitments require me to go to Edinburgh once more.

              Booked a junior suite, we arrived after the reception had closed but were given details of how to access the property and collect the key. On entering the room we were very surprised to see it had not been cleaned, the bed was unmade, dirty cups and towels. We rang the emergency number and were advised we could go to another room which was actually a much bigger suite with 2 big double beds a separate kitchen and big bathroom. So despite the disappointing start we had a great stay & were very happy with our upgraded room. The apartments are very convenient only 5 mins walk from Haymarket station & 15 mins to the shopping area on Princess St.

              Hotel was ok”

              Hotel was not in the city center and it's quite a long walk but there is a nice walkway you can follow. Hotel is quite old and squeaky.
