Great service, great location, friendly helpful staff, breakfast was excellent and had good choices. We ate in the hotel restaurant at night and the menu selection was very good. The room was clean and tidy and had a very comfortable sleep.

My wife and I had a nice three night city break staying here. Conveniently sited hotel within minutes of the Royal Mile and most tourist attractions. Lovely, friendly staff who were only too happy to make our stay more comfortable. Our only grumble would have to be the rooms decor was perhaps a little slapdash (smears of paint on some... More

Me and my sister stayed here in march of 2014 and our stay was really nice and the rooms are very nice too. The employees were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again as it was next to the Edinburgh castle.

We had a three night stay at the Apex city 7-10th April 2014. The hotel is ideally situated in the Grassmarket very close to all the attractions and a good view of the castle from rooms at the front. On arrival we found the reception staff very friendly and helpful, and we were soon settled in our room. The room... More

This is a great hotel with the perfect location for tourists. It's a short walk from Waverley Station (uphill most of the way) and close to most attractions and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and couldn't be more helpful, stowing our luggage until we could check in to our room, giving advice on how to get places, and arranging... More

Lovely hotel in a really great location. You can see the castle from the hotel! Staff were really friendly and catered for every need. The room was a good size with a really nice layout with a good amount of room for luggage not to get in the way.

This is the second time we've stayed here and it really is excellent. We stayed 2 nights and upgraded to a suite. The location in Grassmarkets is perfect if you want to be where there's loads going on. The rooms are so comfy - the suites are incredible value and have wonderful views of the castle. But it's the service... More
