Me and my fiancé stayed here for a birthday celebration, overall we absolutely loved it and were sad to leave both the hotel and Edinburgh. All of the staff were a credit to the hotel, perfectly arranging a castle view room and complimentary drinks in the Agua Bar much to our suprise! Hotel location on Grassmarket is excellent, a short... More

Hotel was ok but the hallway noise kept us up until all hours. slamming doors, partiers talking loud and laughing always followed by a slamming door. Then at 6:00 am the early morning departures started with the same noise. Book this noisey place at your own risk. Unless you are deaf you'll get no rest.

Dear Barbara1200, thank you very much for your feedback. I am disappointed you did not enjoy your stay with us. You made us aware of the noise issue when checking out and I would urge all our guests to raise any concerns during their stay as this would give us the opportunity to rectify problems easily and on the spot....

Stayed for one night only, the lady on check in was friendly and helpful, and stored our bikes for us. The room was comfortable and the location could not have been better. Really good place, but make sure you book air con as my friends didn't and it wasn't a comfortable night.

We had a lovely long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We have never stayed in an Apex hotel before but wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The hotel was immaculate and the staff couldn't do enough for us, so friendly and helpful. 5 star plus accommodation and treatment. The location was also perfect, close to bars restaurants and shops, with a... More

Really good hotel with a wonderful location right in the Grassmarket. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to visit and it is only ten minutes from a direct tram to the airport! Rooms were spotlessly clean and very modern and the staff were lovely. We also got a complimentary drink in the bar with our booking. Great value!

Overall good service, great location. Would recommend it. PS: We didnt have breakfast... More

I stayed at the Apex City hotel with my Dad during the festival season (August). I booked this hotel in particular because it was in Old Town and very close to the castle.

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
