We stayed here recently on our first trip to Edinburgh, the hotel is ideally located overlooking the busy Grassmarket on the edge of the old town a short walk from the Royal Mile. Its location immediately draws you into the historical part of the city, with plenty of quirky shops, places to eat and drink. We drove to Edinburgh and... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and were quite pleased with our room overlooking the bustling Grassmarket and the cleanliness of our room and the accommodations overall. The hotel offers free wi-fi, which is very spotty but also offers free service to a desktop computer, which has high speed access. We had not stayed at an Apex before but will... More

This hotel is based in the grassmarket area of Edinburgh which has a great atmosphere, quirky shops, excellent restaurants, tons of history and if your lucky like I was a fantastic view of the castle. The royal mile is just a 10 min walk away as is the castle. I was in a twin room, very clean and comfortable room,... More

I stayed at the Apex City Hotel in Edinburg in Grassmarket for 3 nights in October in connection with a conference that I was attending with a colleague. The hotel lifted its task of accommodating us beautifully: the room was nice and clean, the bed was exceptionally warm and cosy. There's a shower as well as a bath tub and... More

Excellent hotel, very clean and staff are all helpful. Superb breakfast too. This hotel is situated right in the heart of everything that is Edinburgh. It's pleasant to look out your window and see the castle looming above

When looking for a place in Edinburgh, I was surprised how expensive everything was, so I took advantage of on of those secret deals on a major website and it brought us here. Excellent check in by staff that know how to process a reservation promptly and with a smile. Our room on the side of the building had a... More

Hotel was very nice. Fantastic location on Grassmarket St with views of Edinburgh castle. Miguel at the front desk was very pleasant to work with. Hearty breakfast every morning. Didn't have the best view. If you are lucky to get an odd number room you can see the castle.

Just returned from a Weekend break and couldn't have had a better stay! Hotel is in a perfect location to explore Edinburgh, and we had a fantastic view of the Castle. Room was clean, spacious and large flat screen TV. Bed was super big and comfy and the cookies and shortbreads were a nice extra! Also free WIFI in hotel.... More

We had 2 rooms here. The staff was very helpful - anything from trying to find us a wheelchair to calling a taxi. Everything was very clean and more room than I had anticipated. We had rooms on the back side of the hotel (4th floor) so really didn't experience any problems with noise after 9:30 - 10:00 p.m. Food... More
