Apex City of Edinburgh Hotel
Ranked #37 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We travel to Edinburgh a few times a year on business and to see family. More often than not now we use the Apex for it's fabulous location on the Grassmarket. Lots of bars & restaurants are a stones throw away and the hotel bar has a great view of Edinburgh Castle. The staff here are always friendly and helpful and the food freshly cooked and always good. Rooms very comfortable-prices are not too bad either. Would highly recommend the hotel for business or holiday.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms at the rear of the hotel have no view but are quieter.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in February 2012. The staff wre really friendly and helpful, the room was clean and very comfortable and the breakfasts were delightful. If you are going to Edinburgh then check this one out.

Had booked up to stay 29 th feb. for a surprise get away to propose to my boyfriend. Had contacted the hotel reception before hand to arrange the ring being brought with room service and the correspondence was excellent they could not have been more helpful. Our room as upgraded to superior and that's exactly what it was. The room was actually two rooms, one room with couch, table chairs, desk etc large flat screen tv, mini fridge etc, second room huge double kingsize bed, another 42 inch plasma tv, bath and separate shower room. The rooms were spotless clean and modern. The little extra personal touches added to the enjoyment of our stay, from our cosy bath robes and slippers to our apex squeaky duck, jelly belly beans and ear plugs!! The view of the castle was amazing. We chose to go downstairs for our breakfast in the morning, although we could have had room service and ate at the table in our room. Breakfast choices were brilliant, continental,cereals,fruit juices,fruits,yogurts etc or full English all fresh made and wonderful service, great tasting food for really reasonable price.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for the superior and castle view

Situated on grassmarket the hotel is ideally situated for all the city centre sights and is within view of the castle.
The room itself was lovely, though we did have two single beds pushed together rather than a double which was a bit strange and the windows were not very soundproof. The first night i was woken several times in the early hours by people who had obviously had a few but then the second night (a saturday) was completely fine. We had a room on the 4th floor to the side.
The tv in the room was huge, and the free wi-fi came in handy to plan trips.
The walk in shower in the bathroom was really nice and hot and overall we had a nice stay.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room away from the front and side of the hotel!

Very central modern hotel in the heart of edinburgh close to the castle and princes street, right on grassmarket. Lots of bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Rooms are modern, clean and a good size. Free wifi and plastic duck! What more could you want? We have stayed at a few apex hotels now and they never disappoint for short city breaks. Was by far the best choice in central Edinburgh for the price. Would highly recommend this hotel.
