I stayed at the Apex International with my boyfriend for one night last September. I thought the hotel was absolutely fantastic; the staff were really friendly and took the time to point out where everything was for us on a map. The room was lovely and spacious, my only complaint would be that the decor was maybe a tad tired and it could have done with a fresh coat of paint! But this really was a minor point and overall the room was very comfortable. The swimming pool was lovely although we did struggle to find it as we couldn't see any signs for it and we ended up going to the staff bit by accident.
The location really was the best part of the hotel for us; right in the centre of Grassmarket everything was within walking distance which makes the hotel a great base to explore Edinburgh. There were so many bars and restaurants nearby that we were completely spoilt for choice! For me, the only reason why the Apex didn't get 5 stars was because of the price of the car parking, I did find £12 a day quite expensive considering what we had already paid for the rooms. Overall though we had a brilliant stay and would definitely come back!
