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. We... More

Having stayed at this hotel two years ago, I thought I would choose this 4 star luxury hotel and booked two rooms for myself and my parents. Upon arrival, one of our rooms was ready and we only had to wait about another 15 mins for the other room which was fine. We were able to complete a very early... More

Stayed for 2 nights this week and absolutely loved the hotel. We arrived early but the hotel are happy to take your bags. Great. Returned later and our bags were already in our room, fantastic! Room was spacious and clean. Huge bathroom with shower and a bath. The complimentary toiletries and snacks were great and they were replenished on our... More

I booked this hotel well in advance for our wedding anniversary, but I was worried about ending up in a basement room with no view. I emailed the hotel and expressed my concerns and received a friendly email assuring me that our "special celebration" was noted. When we arrived we were thrilled to receive an upgrade and a card congratulating... More

Having travelled to Edinburgh numerous times with work, staying at different hotels. My first visit to the Apex was in 2013 and although it's is beautifully furnished and you get a free rubber duck in your room, I found the room too cold and breakfast service wasn't great. But I stayed there again recently and was surprisingly impressed with the... More

My wife and I spent two nights in Edinburgh and chose The Apex Waterloo Place based on Tripadvisor reviews boasting modern rooms with comfortable beds. We found both claims to be true, but this hotel offers so much more. The desk staff, especially the porter, Linda, were top notch and amazingly accommodating. The location is convenient to Old Town, Edinburgh... More

We stopped at the Apex for one night and found it was a pleasant retreat from a cold and wet Edinburgh. We used the bar and restaurant and found the service good and the food very palatable. The room was modern and comfortable with all expected facilities. The location is very convenient to walk into the city or railway station.... More

I had heard about Apex hotels and generally good things. But that had little to do with why I had booked this one for a night. It have everything to do with the conference I was attending for a day at the nearby Balmoral Hotel - to rich for my blood. The Apex Waterloo was close, and had an excellent... More
