Stayed here following a relatives wedding in the hotel. Very easy to book. Courteous staff, spacious clean rooms. Ideal location for Central Edinburgh and a reasonable price too. The wedding and the reception were handled smoothly and professionally.

This hotel is well equipped with an extremely polite and helpful front desk. Rooms are large, have king beds and the deluxe rooms have a sensational view of the castle from your own balcony. On the downside beware that the rooms are not airconditioned but there is not much else to complain about. Well located and a joy to stay... More

Stayed here in August, room was decent, staff was fine. Great location with a view out the front door of the castle. Walking distance [5 minutes] to the central part of Edinburgh. Did not have breakfast here.

This hotel is in a prime location in Edinburgh. Being just yards away from the beautiful Edinburgh castle, staying here was most enjoyable for experiencing the atmosphere of this capital city. Upon arriving we were greeted very warmly by the reception staff who were very helpful is telling us about the surrounding area and offered further help if it was... More

This was a wonderful place. It was clean, the beds were comfy, lots of pillows, incredibly helpful staff, amazing view, great breakfast and the pool was perfect for a late night swim. I would definitely stay there again. The rooms were not huge but wonderfully cozy.

Have just come back from a three night stay here and found the hotel to be very good. Amazing location in the old part of Edinburgh, one street away from the royal mile and you can see the castle from the hotel. Rooms were very clean and well stocked elemis products in the bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, hair... More

We booked two rooms for our family over the Festival in August. Service was good, breakfast was good. And my kids had a great room looking at Edinburgh Castle. The hotel is conveniently located right inthe downtown ore. In fact, it hosted a number of performances during the festival. We loved its close proximity to Tattoo. I would not rate... More

Receptionist talked so much she kept confusing herself and she was English. Room only had a small double bed and not the castle view room we had requested. No fridge so the bottled water was warm. The mattress was Hollow in the middle so you rolled into centre and the pillows were very lumpy. The trip was very disappointing. We... More

Great location, friendly staff, very clean, great facilities, thoughtful touches. Thoroughly recommend if you're looking for somewhere not too fancy, but still very nice! Why do reviews have to be 200 characters? That's a bit annoying as I don't really have anything else to say.

We were absolutely delighted with our experience at Apex International. The welcome at reception was very warm and the lady we were greeted by was very friendly and helpful. The room was a really good size, decor etc bang up to date, nice smart bathroom. Free WiFi was really useful for checking transport / timings etc. There's no A/C in... More
