Absolutely great location, the city is on its door step. Great breakfast (recommended) and great service throughout our stay.

Room clean and spacious, gorgeous bathroom, huge bed- though a view of the St James shopping centre and John Lewis' lets it down!!!!

Discount on the city centre parking. A good quality hotel.

Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here on my first visit to Edinburgh. I hope it won't be the last. Very stylish and comfortable. Excellent location a short walk from Waterloo station and many attractions without being right in the center of everything.

All the staff was extremely helpful, location could not be heat, and the room was great. View could have been better but since you go to Edinburgh to be out and about, not a big deal. Great food and overall someplace I would definitely go again.

Compact but classy in it's subdued way. Bathroom new, tea amenities-perfect including goodies and small fridge with water. Very quiet, air conditioned. Good breakfast. 'Linda' who takes care of your bags on arrival was solo helpful as getting around Edinburgh is a challenge with all the detours. This place was a good choice for comfort.

Have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and have to say it is the best hotel I have stayed in , in Edinburgh. I have stayed at so called trendier design hotel Missoni and the Apex is superior but without shouting about it. Great location (particularly during festival as there are no passing crowds) for waverley station aswell as shopping bars and restaurants. the hotel itself if stylish low key (attractive bar - never busy) and staff welcoming/helpful but not over the top. Will never book another hotel when in edinburgh. this time stayed in deluxe room 851 - great spacious room with beautiful views. thanks, as always apex waverley.

Room Tip: Deluxe (i stayed room 851 - very spacious and lovely views)

recently back from my 2nd stay in Apex Waterloo Hotel in Edinburgh. AGAIN - LOVED IT. As soon as I walk in I just feel relaxed. Modern deco and wonderfully pleasant and helpful staff.

I took 3 young relatives with me and they love it too. Spa (pool etc) are great - unfortunately I didn't get a chance to use any of the treatments .... maybe next time! We only used the restaurant for breakfast - which was gorgeous and plentiful. Waitresses extremely patient and obliging.

Great location - just at the start (or end) of Princes Street. Rooms, restuarant, spa, bar = a delight.

I really can't speak highly enough of the Apex Waterloo - can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: the last time we got a family room which had double (?King size) bed, sofa and small camp bed, bathr...

Stayed here with a group of family & friends, we were made feel very welcome, the front desk were fabulous! We did have a few late drinks in the bar which was the perfect finish to our night. The rooms are well equiped & the bathrooms are spectacular. Make sure you don't miss breakfast!!!!!
