Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast wasn't the best though. Plate was very hot but the food wasn't and looks like my eggs benedict had been sat for a while. Cannot comment on the rest of the food because Edinburgh has far too many places to eat at instead! Overall good facilities for a good night's sleep.

I booked a room with my elderly mother. It was perfectly situated-very central and yet a bit far from busiest part of Prince Street. The spa and pool were great, the decoration of the hotel was very pleasant. Most of all, the staff very extremely helpful and friendly, especially Linda at the information desk who gave us great tips for... More

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Apex Waterloo Edinburgh. The location of the hotel was perfect for tourist attractions and getting quiet peaceful rest at the end of the night. We also ate at the bar one night and the Angus burgers were pretty amazing. However, my one complaint is the lack of variety and unimpressive... More

My family and I stumbled on this hotel when the International was booked for the dates we needed and I am so glad it was! We had an amazing time in Edinburgh and adored this hotel. The room was modern but welcoming, the beds comfortable and pristine. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from Calton Hill, our new favorite... More

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...
