Booked to stay at this excellent hotel for 3 days over Christmas period, and have to say one of the best hotels I've stayed in, With Princes St a 5 min walk away along with the Train Station and the Bus Station just around the corner. On arrival the check in was smooth and effort less, the staff very helpful... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Apex Waterloo. The location couldn't be better with Waterloo Station nearby and a tram stop just around the corner. It was very easy to get to from the airport. Our room was small but clean and laid out well with a large bathroom and deep bathtub. I do wish I had requested a... More

Stay a night at Apex Waterloo Place Hotel. Great location at centre of Edinburgh..near Princess Street with Christmas Market during festive season. Room is comfortable, clean and well equipped. Moreover, if you require travel by train just 2 min walk to Edinburgh Waverley Station. Staff here is kind and helpful. The most we like is indoor swimming pool with warm... More

had a very nice stay, super central, only a few steps away from princess street and the Balmoral hotel. The room is certainly spacious and comfortable, staff really friendly. Disappointed from the spas areas and pool, which wasn't as described. The pool is very small and the shower/pool area was smelly.

I booked this hotel for 2 nights at the end of November for myself and my daughter and it turned out to be a fantastic choice. The location is perfect for shopping and sightseeing. The Omni centre (cinema) is 2 minutes walk behind the hotel. The hotel itself is on the quieter end of Princes Street making it a perfect... More

Apex Waterloo is very close to Edinburgh railway station. You can walk to the hotel from the station with all you luggage within 5 minutes. The hotel looks heritage from outside but it has all modern amenities. The rooms are spacious and housekeeping is par excellence. Even room service was very prompt and the staff was courteous. The restaurant served... More

Great hotel, checked in very early, just to leave our bags, room was ready at 10.30 am!!! Room 918, small twin bedded room, with no view overlooking the back of the hotel. I was a bit disappointed with the room size and location, as it was a treat for my daughter and myself. But after looking round the room and... More

This hotel was in a great location, at the centre of Edinburgh. Its a modern hotel with all the amenities you can expect plus more: Spa, Restaurants, Pool, Meeting Rooms etc. You come into the hotel and get greeted by the reception (very modern). The room we stayed in was on the 9th floor, unfortunately the views were not great,... More

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
