I stayed here with family for 2 nights to celebrate a family birthday and overall had a mixed experience. We chose the hotel not only for location but for comfort and modern interiors. The rooms are clean, comfortable and provide a nice selection of Elemis toiletries in the bathroom. Wifi connectivity was good. Our first breakfast was a good experience,... More

Hotel location was central, accessible through a nearby public transportation. Staff were very nice and helpful. They made the difference into a very pleasant experience. Rooms however, were outdated.

We stayed Friday to Monday on a room on the 6th floor (which is actually only one floor up from reception). The reception staff were great and really helpful. We ate in the restaurant on the first night which was good, helped by an incentive voucher, which made it good value. The room was excellent, very clean with great decor... More

The stay was not only to celebrate a birthday but also to rectify problems we encountered on a previous stay in March. Having organised a meal at night, to a surprise cake and decorations in my sisters room to the decor at the evening meal this was all done with the most amazing professionalism. The events team at the Apex... More

Stayed in the hotel for 1 night in a master suite. Luxury is an understatement. The bed was very comfortable and the bath was fantastic. Staff at the hotel were very accommodating and nothing was any trouble. Only thing I would say was that there was no option to have breakfast included in price and it was an expensive extra.

Well located close to Waverley Station and a short stroll from the city, shopping, sight seeing etc. I travelled up from London for the weekend with my son to visit Edinburgh University Open Day and explore the city. The hotel suited our needs as our visit was jammed packed and we spent little time inside other than to sleep and... More

Some of the staff are very good at customer service, the others less so. The hotel is perfectly located for most of the capitals amazing attractions. The hotel is starting to feel a bit jaded. It could do with a refresh. We stayed in a duplex room which was beautifully large but again had seen better days. The cupboard doors... More

We were in room 216 with a view of ventilation shafts and pigeon poo. The room itself was fine with a very comfortable king sized bed and good bathroom. The air conditioning was effective. just avoid this room in the bowels of the hotel

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
