Old-looking building, modern interior, excellent rooms, pleasant staff. A short walk from the major action on Princes Street. Well worth the price. Will certainly go back again. But: Edinburgh's cold and windy in late October, and it gets dark early.

located just 3 minutes walk from waverley station, and centralized location for most attractions. Heart of scotland tour bus stop is just right outside hence the choice. Overall a very pleasant stay and will recommend people to stay there though it costs slightly more - I think it is worth it nonetheless.

Stayed at the Apex Waterloo many times & they never fail to impress. Perfect service from check in, to room service & breakfast. Would highly recommend, very comfy beds and gorgeous food! The gym and spa area are of a high standard and have everything I could require.

Great hospitality with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were roomy and high-end for the price you pay. Breakfast was of good quality and many choices. Sauna and steam room + pool a plus. I would stay here again.

After reading many positive reviews of this hotel, we decided to stay here for our recent Edinburgh trip. However, the experience wasn't perfect. We checked in on a Sat and were given a room which was facing a pub/club with neon pink signs. At first, I did not really notice the club but during the night, there was an awful... More
