The location of this Apex Hotel is perfect, There is is swimming pool. The room was very large and the bed was great. It had a sumptuous bathroom and a large flat screen TV. The breakfast was delicious.

Our room had a beautiful view of Edinburgh Castle and we were located right in the heart of Edinburgh. The swimming pool and spa facilities are lovely. Our stay here was incredible value for money and we would return again.

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.
