Nice room, we got a view of the castle, so it was wonderful. Cleaning was very good, and the room had all we needed and more. The reception was wonderful and really helpful, so we felt very welcome. The hotel is situated in a very nice part of the city. Going back!

Stayed for a city break with my daughter. Lovely hotel and very friendly staff. Very clean in all areas. The fusion restaurant was not to our taste and we didn't enjoy our meal. Breakfast was delicious and kids eat free. We also stayed an extra night at Apex Waterloo as our train home was cancelled. We preferred the location of...

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. Friendly people and good service. Top location. A disadvantage was the bathroom. To get into the bath/shower you had to make a huge step. The beds were ok and comfortable. Nice swimmingpool and sauna.

Excellent hotel. In need of a bit of refurbishment but very clean and excellent staff. The food in the restaurant is particularly good. Would visit again. Excellent location in Edinburgh old town, close to castle and many free museums.

Most services were okay but I was put in room 2018 which is near noisy AC units. I couldn't sleep. Room was very hot as well - wrong temperature set which I had no control of. Breakfast was great. Staff were nice.

Really enjoyed our stay here with Apex. My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights for our anniversary. Location is perfect with lots of little coffee shops, bars and places to eat near by. The staff were all very friendly, especially the house keeper and gentleman who stored our luggage for us. Had continental breakfast included which saved a bit...

Great location, well run hotel, got a room at the rear of the hotel, no view but very quiet which was good. Not sure what's going on but the rooftop restaurant is closed and you now eat in the basement, really miss those great views. All in all I would recommend this hotel

The staff were, without exception, polite, friendly and really helpful. When we arrived our room wasn't quite ready, so they gave us a free drink in the bar whilst we waited. We thought this was a really nice gesture and got our stay off to a great start. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom was spotless...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood 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-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.
