Six of us stayed in three double rooms, rooms are spotless with everything you need for comfort, nice big shower with fab elemis toiletries. Bed was quite soft, we didnt sleep well as the duvet was too warm but when you took it off it was freezing, couldnt get a happy medium. Also we were on the street side and was quite noisy, probably normal for a city but we're not used to it. Decor in hotel is very modern, lots to admire. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice, bar a bit pricey but we got a free £10 voucher per room for booking online so that was a free round :) Pool is small but we had it to ourselves so was perfect. Couldn't fault the location, close to everything and staff were very friendly. Would definatly book again.

The hotel could not be more central, it was a short walk from the train station. The room was spotlessly clean. The staff were really helpful. The breakfast was excellent. Would return tomorrow and would recommend it to our friends.

just returned from a nights stay at the apex . enjoyed our stay here and the rooms were a decent size with a view across the city from the 10 th floor at he back of the hotel, the beds were comfy and the bathroom had a shower no bath but nice products to use and plenty towels and a huge mirror ,the tv had lots of music channels and a dvd player, would return to this hotel as it made us very welcome, it is placed in an ideal postion across the road from Edinburgh station and a 10 min walk to most shops cafes bars , great stay will return ..

I traveled in the US nearly every week for about 5 years on my previous job, and stayed at a wide variety of hotels. This is the best hotel I've ever stayed in.

The location is excellent - an easy walk to the train station, 1 minute to New Town and five minutes to the heart of Old Town. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were large and comfortable and the bathroom was huge. The thickest bathrobes were hanging on the door for our use. Coffee and biscuits (cookies) were available in the room without any pesky minibar. I loved this place. I could easily spend a week there.

The hotel is located near Calton Hill in walking distance to Princess Street and Royal Mile. Nice and quiet rooms. Helpful staff. Breakfast buffet is ok, but nothing out of the ordinary (but a very nice interior).
There is a minimarket and a italian restaurant cnex to the hotel (try the italian ice cream - it's great).
