Having stayed numerous times at the Apex City of London (and love it more each time), we chose this hotel for a visit to Edinburgh. The area (Grassmarket) is full of bars which late on a Saturday makes it a very rowdy area. However, the hotel had honoured our email and gave us a room at the side of the... More

Booked this hotel for a weekend at the fringe and attending the Tattoo. Good price for the peak season, close to the Castle and very close to the lower end of the fringe comedy venues. Enjoyed our stay, including the light night whisky session after the late night tattoo.

We had a last minute booking so we paid a lot more than it would usually cost. But good quiet place with a pool and gym that is for guests. The location is very close to the castle and high street - so it was fun to walk around.. The tour services start right outside the hotel and so locationwise... More

The Apex City Hotel is in a terrific location on Grassmarket in the old section of Edinburgh, close to many sites in the city. We stayed in a master suite which was roomy, comfortable and nicely decorated and modern, with a view of the castle. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Only downside to our street-side room was some brief... More

We were there for the festival and it was an ideal location. Rather noisy at the front of the hotel but that is to be expected. Good breakfast although the smoked haddock was off one day either undercooked or past its use by date. The rooms were fine however there was honey or similar over one side of the dressing... More

The Apex City Hotel, in Edinburgh turned out to be very a pleasant surprise. I booked online for my 8 year old daughter and myself to stay, on the night of 24th August. The only room showing with breakfast included was a double bed room. Within a couple of hours of booking, I received a call from the hotel to... More

I have stayed here before a few years ago, and chose it again this time as it was central and convenient for all the Fringe festival action – I was up there covering it for three days. It was over £200 a night, but you can’t really get anything that’s a good standard for a reasonable price during the festival.... More
