Very modern contemporary styling inside ... which if you are looking for something historical based on the exterior you will be disappointed. However, it is very chic. We didn't eat here except for breakfast. The location is primo. Walking distance to practically everything if you don't mind walking. The staff is very accommodating. Our only complaint was being put in... More

We spent two nights at this hotel. It is situated at the East end of Princes Street, so is in an ideal location for the heart of the city of Edinburgh. The staff were friendly and efficient and breakfast was of a high standard. We did not dine in the hotel apart from breakfast. The cost was competitive for a... More

Nothing has changed and you can count on a clean comfortable room, welcoming customer service agents, porters and bar staff. We do not look elsewhere when arranging our Edinburgh stay. Why waste time when you know what you get... More

Just back from our 5th annual trip to the Apex Waterloo. Fantastic location, rooms and service, and the spa was one of the best I've been to, using all of Elemis products. The 'Old Alliance' cocktail was a delight too. Can't wait for next year.

Stayed only for two nights at the hotel but was very impressed by the facilities and especially the warm Scottish hospitality provided by Linda at guest services. She was very helpful with her suggestions on where to go and what to see and even stayed back to give us more information even though she had finished her shift. Much appreciated... More

Just back from five nights at the Waterloo Place Hotel, for us the perfect place to stay in Edinburgh. It is in a fantastic location, just off Princes Street, and a very short walk from Waverley Station. We stayed in a twin room on the 8th floor, we could see the sea :-) the room was spotlessly clean, warm and... More

The Apex Waterloo is close to the City centre, so you can walk to most of Edinburgh's sites. I was there on business and found it great that the room was quite spacious. Bathroom was also nice with both shower and bath. Breakfast at the hotel was nice but not very cheap. Wi-fi connection is free which is definitely a... More

My wife and I were very impressed with this hotel. It has a great location. Our room (king size bed) and bathroom were very comfortable and clean, with a nice large window looking into the avenue. Breaksfast was fantastic. The hotel has a very nice bar and lounge to relax. Most important, each person from the hotel staff was very... More
