    Very good hotel, well placed near the castle. Good breakfast and very good restaurant at affordable price. The pool is very nice, with changing rooms and showers available. The staff is numerous and pleasant.

    I stayed at the Apex Grassmarket hotel during a weekend trip to Edinburgh. The location is perfect, easy access to Edinburgh Castle and a lot of restaurants nearby. I got a complimentary continental breakfast with my booking which was delightful.
