“STAY HERE!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

Recently stayed here with my husband to see a concert at the Playhouse. Location was perfect for this venue and also hotel was minutes from Princess Street and Waverley station. Parked our car literally round the corner from the hotel at the Omni Centre and we were pleasantly surprised at the charge when we collected it.( Friday 11pm until Sunday 11.30am.) Reception staff were delightful and also bar staff very pleasant and helpful.Will definately stay here again.

I stayed for two nights in the Apex Waterloo hotel in a deluxe room (well worth the upgrade price for the coffee machine, large bathroom, evening turndown service and other extras).

The hotel is in a wonderful location, the staff are polite, cheerful and attentive and the hotel is decorated to a high standard. The amenities provided are excellent and breakfast was top notch, I would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Upgrading to a deluxe room is well worth it.

I have stayed with you 3 times now over the past month or so and in general the stay has been excellent. The only downside I have experienced is I have struggled to get a strong wifi connection and both my iPhone and work BB which are on Vodafone and BT respectively struggle to get a signal which makes it difficult to do some work from your room. I was in room 404 Thursday 25th April but can't recall the other 2 room numbers but you will see from your records.

Is this an issue with every room at the Apex or have I just been unlucky??

Room Tip: Better wifi and Vodafone/BT phone signal

My husband and I were in town for the half marathon and our honeymoon. Everything was great including the location, service, food etc. The only thing I must say is that the bar on the corner kept me from getting a good nights rest before the race. Other than that it was great. Would definitely stay here again.

I'm a fan of the Apex group and this one doesn't change that view. The location is perfect, being a minute from Princes street but just away from the hustle and bustle. The staff are super efficient and friendly, the rooms are large and comfortable and the spa area is very good. I didn't eat in the hotel but from what I could see the dining area was well used.

Location is great if you are using the rail network and is so close to the city centre. We were in luck and received an upgrade .... Room was excellent. Have stayed here before which is why we came back again, and we will certainly be back
