My husband and I stayed in the deluxe double and we couldn't fault the room or the hotel staff.
Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfasts were delicious. The little extras in the room are amazing and we will definitely stay again, the bed was heavenly!!!
Excellent value for money and good location, thank you.

not the best for me. Because on first floor and very small room for 3 of us. Also the local bar had a late night party out the street and woke us up as well.

The rest of the hotel and staff are nice and really enjoyed the concierge as well. The location is good as well. The food was fine for breakfast won't eat dinner here.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are probably bigger and better than on the first floor try to get something on ano...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my husband. Hotel and room both very nice and clean. Breakfast was plentiful and red hot. The hotel is in an excellent location with easy access to all main attractions. Loved the hotel and loved Edinburgh. Would definitely recommend.

Im not a serial reviewer but on this occasion I feel I must make an exception and say a big thank you to the team at the apex waterloo Place Edinburgh. It was a very special weekend for myself and my now fiance with her birthday and a marriage proposal and the team really pulled out the stops to make it memorable and smooth running for us. So many greatly appreciated touches including the room upgrade, card and chocolates and overall outstanding service. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We couldn't fault anything which cannot be said for the majority of hotels we've previously stayed. Thank you again for helping to make it such an unforgettable weekend!

Picked here as was close to shops & the playhouse. Staff very welcoming & helpful. We were there when the weather was pretty bad with winds etc, never heard a thing!
The amenities in room were fantastic! Got a dodgy hair dryer that didn't work, phoned down & new one up to me within 5 mins. Excellent service.

Room Tip: Try get a superior room bit more room!

We stayed here in June of 2011. Located just a short block down from Calton Hill, it is a short walk up the hill from the Waverly Bridge and station where the bus from the airport drops you off. There is a stop right in front of it for one of the on-off tourist all day buses. A small grocery store is at the end of the block. You are a very short walking distance from the Royal Mile. We got there about 9 in the morning from the airport - way before check-in time and asked if they had a secure room for left baggage and the reply was that they could put us right into our room. Great. The day we left, we did leave our baggage in their secure room and picked it up in the afternoon on our way to the airport to pick up a rental car. We thought the price of our 2 night stay was very reasonable.
