Very disappointed in this hotel. We checked in and were shown to a very small, dark room next to the lift with one window and a disabled bathroom (no tub). I'm not sure how a disabled person would have got around the tiny space between the bed and the wall, but that's another matter. We called reception and explained our... More

Booked this venue for an afternoon tea on a long weekend in Edinburgh and was left feeling that we should maybe have considered another venue. Arrived on a wet Monday afternoon in a near empty Brasserie, (only ourselves and another party of four), so was disappointed when we sat for an hour after first being shown to our seats before...

Recently stayed at the Apex Waterloo hotel in Edinburgh for 3 nights. Central location. Close to train station and Royal Seven Mile. Easy to get anywhere. Great restaurants and shops in the area. Room was large and although faced the street was very quiet. Nice amenities. Only complaint regarding the room was that it was dark with the curtains closed... More

Stayed here through a lack of other options on the dates we needed, but would not stay again. Rooms are a reasonable size, but oddly shaped - the ratio of room to bathroom is odd to say the least and makes night-time navigation difficult with the wedge shaped bedroom! Four an apparently four-star hotel upkeep was lacking: the bed valance... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. We were a bit disappointed by the size of the room. Very difficult to maneuver around the bed. The staff was very nice, however. And the location was pretty good. Easy access to train station, the Royal Mile and other sites. But I don't think we would stay here again.

I travelled to Edinburgh in November 2013 for my hen do with 8 friends. After much deliberation we selected the Apex Waterloo as our hotel for the night and we were not disappointed. The location was perfect and easily walkable to all the main attractions. The rooms were of an excellent quality well appointed and our bathroom was huge. I... More

My husband and I spent three nights at the Apex Waterloo this month. It is in a very good location for sightseeing. It's near the Balmoral in New Town, but on a quieter end of the road. It's on the street with the entrance to Calton Hill, an easy walk to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the... More

This hotel is good but expensive . Great central location and nice rooms. Great food (afternoon snacks) and quick room service yet breakfast wasn't brilliant and was expensive. Massage in the spa wasn't the best I have had but overall good trip.

The Apex Waterloo Hotel is a lovely hotel located just around the corner from the venerable Balmoral in New Town. We were there at the end of a festival so the city was quite crowded and perhaps did not show itself off at its best. The hotel, however, was A+ right from the start of our visit. The front desk...
