Reviewed 27 May 2013

Good position for train,sights and shopping. Realy friendly and helpful staff. Our family had paid for our two night break as 40th wedding anniversery and the hotel had upgraded us to a luxury room which realy made it a special occasion.

Lovely hotel with great bed and sleeping qualitiy. Room service was great as we got anice breakfast delivered at the precise minute we order it the night before. The SPA area was nice and clean and not crowded. The location was also quite perfect for a weekend in Edinburgh with shopping, sightseeing and eating.

I can only tell you about our New Year's Eve dinner and dance at this hotel, which was DELIGHTFUL! Well, the food was so-so, but the setting, the band, the disco, atmosphere, location and staff welcome were all excellent. Even our family baby's place at the table was decked out with NewYear's decorations and favours, added to his high chair. Staff were most solicitous of our needs as a multi-age family group. At midnight, we could step out to the street and see fireworks from both the Castle and Calton Hill, then go back in for disco dancing until 1 a.m. A great evening!

Debated between several hotels when booking my trip. Decided on Apex Waterloo. Perfect location to explore both the old and new town. Clean facilities, large rooms, friendly helpful staff who go out of their way to welcome you and make your trip more enjoyable. Would definately stay here again if back in Edinburgh. I saw the other places I considered while wandering town and I'm glad I made the choice I did.

Room and hotel clean and comfortable. Excellent location. Housekeeping and reception staff very helpful, let down by bar staff who were more interested in their own discussions rather than tending to customers. Bar food was average and quite pricey, however breakfast was excellent. Spa not great.

There's not much I can say about this hotel that hasn't already been said, very centrally located, beautiful room, good leisure facilities and friendly efficient service. Looking for an excuse to go to Edinburgh so that I can stay there again.

We booked this hotel for our anniversary. I had written in the note section when I booked that we were celebrating a special occasion. When we arrived, we were informed that we would be upgraded to a large suite! We were delighted! The room was huge, full of windows with fabulous views. We also received vouchers for a free drink each- a touch of class! The bathroom was fab. The shower was huge, huge tub, bathrobes and slippers. Couldn't be cosier! The rooms were clean but the only thing we noticed upon our arrival was what looked like an item left on the floor from the previous guest. : /
Also, within the first hour of our arrival, two different housekeeping staff walked into the room using their key. We were a bit shocked. The first staff member apologised profusely and left. Fifteen minutes later, another staff member just walked in with her key, I said, "Yes?" With a smile she told me she forget to put shampoo in the room earlier. :/
The location was handy. Very near Waverly train station and where the tour buses commence as well as the airlink bus. I would stay here again.
