Just back from a three night stay at the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel and it was quite simply fantastic. The lady on reception when we arrived was very friendly and attentive and this just set us off on the right foot. From there on I can easily say that all staff we came across were very friendly and had excellent... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay here. Ideally located for great restaurants and pubs in the New Town area. Most city centre tourist attractions within walking distance, but plenty of bus routes nearby , if required. Room was great and very quiet, even though we were across from a pub. As others have mentioned, station is a very convenient 5... More

Apex Waterloo is a great location. It's an easy walk from the train station, so even if you have luggage - trust me, you can make it. Just exit (up the escalators) to Princes Street/Waterloo Street and you are about 2 blocks. It was in perfect proximity to the castle, the National Monument, Queen Street, etc. We were upgraded to...

We booked this hotel based on its location and reviews and we're not disappointed. The room we booked was a deluxe, the room and amenities had a luxurious feel and really added to the stay.

The hotel was very convenient to the train station where my wife and I arrived from London; about a 2 block walk, and also convenient to old town and new town shopping areas. We had notified the hotel in advance that we would be checking in late and got an email confirmation which put me at ease before we even... More

Only a 1-night stay, so my experience may not be a true reflection. This is a much "newer" than its Grassmarket sister hotel. It is well located for shopping, Waverly Station (6 minute walk with luggage), and Calton Hill. Check in welcome was neither friendly nor unfriendly. My room was average European sizes, but well and comfortably appointed. Comfortable bed.... More

Me & my girlfriend stayed here for a short 2 night stay in Edinburgh, it's an excellent location not too far from anywhere. The royal mile is just over the bridge and new town and shopping is within easy access down princes street. Most of the city attractions and sights are very close making this an excellent choice for exploring... More

Fantastic hotel with staff that go the extra mile - nothing is too much trouble for them and after telling them we had had to switch the date of our bookings and subsequently had to pay slightly more they offered us complementary breakfast which was lovely. The beds were very comfy and the rooms were particularly spacious with stylish and... More

We stayed two nights in a deluxe double on the top floor. Room was spacious and nicely furnished. Picture window the length of one wall with view towards Leith. Lovely view but even on 10th floor there was a lot of outside noise on the Saturday night. Location was excellent two minutes from Waverley station and 20 seconds from Princes... More
