Lovely place to stay. About 15 mins walk to Prices Street, which is not too bad. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. No problem recommending this hotel. Close proximity to the airport, just hop on the "Airlink 100" bus and it's about 15 mins of a journey.

We were travelling for a wedding and had a horribly early flight but the staff obliged us by letting us into our room at 9.30am. The rooms are very spacious and clean. You are 10mins walking distance to Princes St. The staff make this hotel they are brilliant.

This place is a three-star hotel but I think it could easily be four. I came across the Apex European by accident, or actually by the fact that Edinburgh was very busy last week. I usually stay in more central hotels, but the rates were shocking, so I picked something different and went for this place. And I was not... More

Stay here regularly with work, good location for walking into town. The best feature of this hotel is the staff, they're always willing to help with any requests and go out of their way to help my stay be as comfortable as possible. Special mention to Slavek working the night shift...top bloke! Also the breakfast here is superb!
