We visited as a last-minute break away and found the perfect spot. The hotel is a stones throw away from the train station which is very convenient. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were sizeable, clean and have the biggest beds I have ever stayed in. The bathroom had a separate shower and bath which... More

Decided to try a different Apex hotel and chose here instead of the other three in the city. Location is great. 3 minutes walking to train station if you are on Waterloo Place and thus Princes Street or from level 0 then it is literally one minute to there and a couple of minutes to the Omni Centre and Playhouse....

We stayed for 4 nights while in Edinburgh to get married, and have a lovely stay. Staff are very professional yet friendly, and the servers in the restaurant for breakfast are especially polished. Though the exterior of the property has a period appearance, inside everything is very modern and stylish. Our deluxe room was spacious for a city centre hotel,... More

My daughter and I stayed for an overnight. We were upgraded to superior room which was lovely. The spa and pool tho small was adequate. We dined in restaurant Elliot's which was fab. Customer service overall was faultless. I would not hesitate in returning to this hotel, location was also excellent.

Stayed at this Apex for two nights. It has a great central location. Parking is available outside the hotel on a pay per hour meter or park down the hill a bit for free. Rooms are spacious and clean. They are very well maintained. Staff are delightful and warm. Nothing too much hassle for them. Will be back next year.

Convenient location - very close to the rail station, and the night life district. Great staff - very friendly (including the restaurant). Cool room - I stayed at the Deluxe Double: spacious, comfi, quite, good views, a great bathroom, a working coffee machine and complementary snacks. Fine restaurant - awesome food and service (the seats are not very comfi though).... More

Just got back from a mini break in Edinburgh. The Waterloo is minutes away from the railway station. Also on the doorstep of the Playhouse. This was ideal for us. Polite staff, clean room, nice Elemis toiletries, delicious food, king size bed was so comfortable. Slept like a log. Will return.

We booked a family room for two nights. Elliots restaurant was booked out on Saturday night but the concierge very kindly arranged a table for us at Howie's just up the road. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and warm. Only criticism was that the room was a little dark, but I had requested a quiet room and that is... More
