    The Apex Waterloo is just a short walk to Waverley Station and the shops on Princes Street. The welcome is friendly and efficient and rooms are stylish, providing every comfort. I will certainly choose to stay here again the next time I am in Edinburgh.

    This hotel is very conveniently situated for Waverley Station. It is located in a beautiful old building but is extremely modern inside. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and fresh. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was 1st class.
