Spent a weekend at the Apex European and found it great in most respects. The Airlink bus to/from Edinburgh Airport, stops about 150 yards along the road. It is a little way out of the city, but perfect for Murrayfield. There is a local bus stop directly outside, which will take you into Princess St. etc. You can get a rover-type day ticket off the driver for £3.50. Rooms in the hotel were spacious, well appointed and clean, and all the little extras, like teas, coffees and shortbread bikkies, were present, correct and replenished by the Room Fairy! Fresh laundry and room serviced each day, even though we were only there for 2 nights. The complimentary £10 voucher given (available to spend on food/drinks but not breakfast) when reservations are made direct with the hotel, came in handy, as the bar prices are over the top. No draught/keg beers 'on tap'. We had one evening meal there, with most of the lads going for the 'Taste of Scotland' 3-course set menu at £19.95, which was good value for money. A couple of us had the 'Chargrilled Sirloin of Scottish Beef', off the A La carte menu, at a similar price, and that was NOT good value for money! Two of the guys had breakfast (£9.95?) which they reported was 'good'.
The staff were friendly and helpful (Gold Star for Owen!).
All in all, it added to a good weekend and we'd stay there again.
