“A few days in Edinburgh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

Lovely hotel, stayed for 3 nights with my husband and 2 young adult sons. Great location within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Spacious rooms compared to where we stayed in London, contemporary decor, open airy feeling throughout. Would stay there again.

This was our 1st stay at this hotel, and it wont be our last! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely, only small complaint was that the shower went hot and cold while in it, but nothing too bad.

We ha the dinner, bed & breakfast deal, both the dinner and breakfasts were lovely, very well cooked and again the waiter and waitresses were very polite and friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot fault service or quality. The Leisure suite was beautiful and well equipped. We had a room at the front which was spacious and well fitted out. All staff were extremely friendly helpful and courteous at all times. We only ate breakfast but the service was prompt and the food excellent.

Having previously stayed at the Apex International in Edinburgh, I decided to try the 'Luxury' Apex at Waterloo Place. It was a perfect stay. My partner thoroughly enjoyed the treatments I'd booked for her in the on-site spa, and the room extras we added were beautifully presented.
If there was a minor issue it was that the room was a little delayed on our arrival but we were promptly offered free drinks to redeem whenever we fancied during our stay which was more than enough to make up for our 10 minute wait.
We booked a 'superior' room so cannot speak to the quality of the standard rooms but we felt very much pampered by the facilities we had.
It's right next to the station so perfect if you're leaving the car at home and they are keen to emphasise that they expect you to be able to drop off your bags early - or upon leaving so you can get the most out of the lovely city without worrying about check-in check-out times.
Breakfast was superb and reasonably priced even when brought to the room if you felt like being as lazy as us.
Lovely staff - in the bar and at the desk - so yeah, can't say enough positive stuff about this place. If you're heading to Edinburgh and they have a room spare - go for it.

I found that the service provided by the Apex Hotal staff was excellent, the rooms were kept clean daily which was brilliant, by the time we left in the morning and returned in the afternoon the rooms had been cleaned. I lost my chain which my wife got, I told the reception and by the time I came back in the evening they had found it and put it in the Managers safe for safe keeing.
I would recomment this Hotel to everyone as it was one of the best holidays i had ever had!!! :-)

Stayed for two nights at this wonderful hotel in the middle of Edinburgh. Couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel due to its very close proximity to the bus, the train station and the quick availability of taxis. Almost everything is within walking distance from this hotel. The hotel rooms are comparable to american higher end chain hotels, complete with rubber ducky on both nights of our stay. Because ours was a last minute booking, our first room had a small window, but the second night we were transferred to another room with a better view. We didn't have to carry our bags to our rooms on the first and second night, the staff did all that for us so we were free to explore the city early. The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful and the breakfast was also good enough to get our day started started.
