Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast wasn't the best though. Plate was very hot but the food wasn't and looks like my eggs benedict had been sat for a while. Cannot comment on the rest of the food because Edinburgh has far too many places to eat at instead!
Overall good facilities for a good night's sleep.

I booked a room with my elderly mother. It was perfectly situated-very central and yet a bit far from busiest part of Prince Street. The spa and pool were great, the decoration of the hotel was very pleasant.
Most of all, the staff very extremely helpful and friendly, especially Linda at the information desk who gave us great tips for our first visit in Edinburgh.
I will definitely recommend this hotel and go back if I have the opportunity

Room Tip: choose a room at top floor

Our room (Superior Double) was clean, spacious and comfortable. Special thanks must go to the Concierge who recommended a number if excellent restaurants and places to see! We will be visiting again.

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Apex Waterloo Edinburgh. The location of the hotel was perfect for tourist attractions and getting quiet peaceful rest at the end of the night. We also ate at the bar one night and the Angus burgers were pretty amazing. However, my one complaint is the lack of variety and unimpressive breakfast buffet.

Would definitely return if ever in Edinburgh again!

My family and I stumbled on this hotel when the International was booked for the dates we needed and I am so glad it was! We had an amazing time in Edinburgh and adored this hotel. The room was modern but welcoming, the beds comfortable and pristine. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from Calton Hill, our new favorite place. Tub was large and deep, amenities plentiful, and the separate shower was large. We took advantage of the indoor pool, and the sauna as well. Both Caitlin and Verity were incredibly helpful. We really couldn't recommend this hotel higher.

Just back from a three night stay at the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel and it was quite simply fantastic. The lady on reception when we arrived was very friendly and attentive and this just set us off on the right foot. From there on I can easily say that all staff we came across were very friendly and had excellent customer service. Our room was on the third floor and although we did not have a great view this did not bother us as the room was lovely. It was a great size with all of the usual Apex luxuries and the bed was very comfortable. The gym and spa were excellent and well worth a visit. The bar area was very relaxing and had a great selection of cocktails and craft beers which were all very reasonably priced. As said in many other reviews, the hotel is well situated and you can walk to all attractions.

We have stayed in Edinburgh on numerous occasions and stayed at a lot of nice hotels such as the Missoni, however when we are next in Edinburgh (which I hope is soon) I will most definitely be booking the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel. I cannot wait to return to this hotel.
