This apartment was EXCELLENT!! What more can you say ? You can tell that the owner actually put a lot of thought and effort into every little detail of making this apartment stay a super one. First of all, the bed rooms were really nice and warm with lots of care to making you want to just relax and settle there for the whole month, then there is the carpeting in the whole apartment which is a must for Edinburgh during the colder months. The bathrooms and showers were a WOW!!! Water pressure in showers were even better than the ones you can get from 5-star hotel accomodations. Even tiny things like cotton buds and disposable shavers gives one the feeling of luxury. Next comes the kitchen, i cook, and to me, this kitchen is what i would say a 'tad' shy of the Masterchef Kitchen but you know that for an average cook, IT IS GOOD. Finally, the garrage was really something out of a old period movie, it is actually a converted horse stable, very fitting and cosy with cobbled stones driveway. Beautiful!
Thanks Olessia for making this stay so wonderful and if one of the boys make it to Edinburgh University, you can bet i will be back with the whole gang again.
We have been going around UK to visit universities for our children's enrolment for unis next year and have been staying in some crappy apartments. So we didn't have much hope when we arrive at Palmerston. But we were so delighted and glad to be proven wrong. Firstly, we were welcomed warmly by Olessia. There were some snacks, fruit juice and even milk available. She is so thoughtful. The whole apartment is so well equipped and since we were cooking, the kitchen is complete with all amenities. The bathroom is wonderful- like a 6 star hotel! She even have cotton buds and many amenities found in hotels. The super king size bed is so comfortable. The living room is really good although we were hardly in as we were out whole day. I wish we had more time in Edinburgh. The next time we are in town, we would definitely book her place again!
Fantastic accommodation cannot fault in any way. Olessia the owner could not have done more to make our stay most welcoming. Apartment first class would thoroughly recommend. Can't wait to come back again.
My family and I stayed in this gorgeous apartment over Easter. We had the most wonderful time. The appointment was exquisite. All the little luxurious touches like food necessities, toiletries and slippers were fantastic. The chocolate eggs were a lovely touch, which our five year old thought the Easter bunny had left.
Olessia the owner was so lovely and welcoming. She went out of her way to ensure a great stay in this favourite city of ours.
Looking forward to returning again soon
We have spent 6 days at Olessias's beautiful apartment in the west end of Edinburgh. We were a couple and our 15 years son.
The owner, Olessia, was very kind while answering my questions before booking and at check in. We arrived at 11 and could check in right away.
The apartment is very spacious and in perfct conditions. Olessia also included a lot of items as wellcome package (milk, marmelade, tea, coffee and some chocolates). The apartment was warm full of toiletries, towells (more than we need), extra blankets and everything you could need (even electric plug adaptors!,!!) like washing machine soap, dishwasher tablets, many dvds and even a wii (although we never used that as there are plenty of things to visit at the city).
Location is great. The Airlink 100 from the airport has a stop at 150 meters, Haymarket train station at 300 meters (we took trains to Glasgow and Stirling from here).
You can walk everywhere from the apartment. 5-10 min to New Town, 30 min to Waverly station (main train station) and 40 min to the Castle. No need to take buses nor trams.
Also isomething that was remarkable for us was the perfect cleaning state for all prperty. Clearly Olessia takes care as her own house.
In summary, highly recommended, clean, very well equipped, all modern appliances in perfect conditions and very good location in a quiet area.
Well appointed, fabulous apartment. Host was very welcoming and non intrusive. Great location with easy access to the city. Really lovely place, the only issue was the front steps were difficult for our elderly parents.
