A modern hotel with great service, a huge very comfortable room at a ridiculous price. And it's on the Grassmarket. Tour bus stop is outside. Great restaurants, bars, cafes all in the square, what more could you want? We ate in the french restaurant just down from the hotel - absolutely superb.

4th time visit here celebrating our 50th birthdays. Really would not pick any other hotel. As always the staff were excellent. Very efficient and very friendly. The hotel was going through some renovations but this did not mar our stay. At the room we received a lovely hand written note congratulating us on our birthdays with a complimentary drinks voucher.... More

I booked this hotel for my husbands birthday surprise, I chose the hotel due to previous reviews I had read, and I can honestly say I wasn't disappointed. This hotel is a very central city hotel but what makes it stand out from the rest is the personal touch. I emailed the hotel before we arrived to ask if there... More

Staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed with the most comfortable bed and pillows I have experienced in any hotel. Situated at the top end of Princess street it's a short walk to the castle and other central attractions. The hotel also has a rear exit to Waverley station. Heating in our room was temperamental, but... More

Modernisation is almost complete and the interiors of this hotel are very nice and contemporary. Service was excellent and very efficient on all occasions. Room was cosy and comfortable (I had a very good sleep for an unfamiliar hotel room). Slight noise from the street late night actiivities but could hardly hear it at all. Breakfast was acceptable. Fairly limited... More

The Apex City is a really nice hotel which is big enough to have great facilities, but small enough to feel comfortable and welcoming. The hotel is currently undergoing some refurbishment but do not let this put you off. There are two Apex hotels on the Grassmarket - the City is the one on the left if you're facing away... More

First find the right hotel, not as easy as it sounds as two sister hotels sit 50 yards apart. Ours is the one surrounded by scaffold. Our initial concerns at negotiating the front entrance scaffolding have melted away. The on going improvements have not disturbed our peace and the staff could not have been more helpful and obliging. The standard... More

I booked this hotel for a group of colleagues travelling to a meeting. The price was very reasonable. On booking we were sent an e-mail telling us that the bar etc was undergoing refurbishment. We were not told that the foyer and bedroom floors were also being refurbished. The main problems we encountered were: not being told that you had... More
