Nice hotel, but poor dinner package. The inclusive meal was so limited, we had to ask for the a la carte. That too was disappointing. Breakfast: very officious lady who was totally inflexible - she stopped an elderly lady from joining her son and daughter-in-law who were already seated - had to wait her turn to be listened to! Needn't... More

We stayed at the Waterloo recently on a trip through Scotland. We were there for 4 nights. Check in was easy and painless. My only complaint at check in was I had booked this hotel because it was a VIP hotel through Expedia and when we arrived they said they couldn't upgrade us or didn't offer us even so much... More

Apex Waterloo Place Hotel served as the perfect base for our Scottish adventure. It is a perfect location in the city to be able to esplore all the history, culture, fine dining and shopping that Edinburgh offers. Our stay was most comfortable, quiet and well served. I can't say that I've ever seen a more hard working, dedicated hotel staff.... More

Here after staying at the balmoral hotel and let me tell you it is night and day. The front desk seem like it was the first day on the job and had no idea what they're doing they were not friendly at all and for paying 295 pounds a night expect someone to smile at me when I walk to... More

Stayed here while on business. Excellent location, almost opposite the Balmoral hotel. Room was very nice, good air-con (amazingly warm in Scotland for September!) Wifi fast, reliable, rooms pristine. Would definitely stay here again for business. Pleasant for tourists too.

My wife and myself spent two days in Edinburgh as part of our Insight tour. Our room was large but the view was another building across the street. I would agree with the other reviewers, if you want a view, get a room on the higher floors. The location is ideal for shopping and access to Edinburgh Castle. We were... More

Just returned from a five day stay at this hotel and was pretty impressed. The hotel is in a great location that is close to everything but in a quiet area, we were comfortable able to walk to most locations on our to do list in under 30 minutes and the airport tram platform is a 5 minute walk.
