Loved the Apex Grassmarket so much that I returned with friends. We had a fabulous stay here, met up in the bar for drinks and had a great time. We had breakfast here, which was just perfect. The Grassmarket area is my favorite in Edinburgh,...More

We had a good stay here. We had a great view of the castle and it was in walking distance of so many things to see and do. The windows do need to be cleaned. There was not air conditioning so we had to leave...More
From our balcony we had fantastic view of the castle and a bustling market. An ideal location close to everything with sightseeing busses nearby. The room was very comfortable with ample choice for breakfast except the in house restaurant was limited.
Very clean hotel and room with a great view of Edinburgh Castle. Comfy beds too. There are two Apex Hotels in the Grassmarket though, not great when you go to the wrong one with all your luggage. Staff very helpful and professional.
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-flavoured 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.
