My husband and I escaped to Edinburgh for the weekend, and really enjoyed our stay at the Apex City. We arrived and Suki was ever so friendly with maps, breakfast times, etc. If there's one thing that sets this hotel apart besides the location it is the staff!! Every encounter we had was friendly.
The hotel is right across the street from the castle, and has stunning views. We had a quiet room on the top floor, but without a view - still, it was fine for us. Our room (4102) showed signs of repaired water damage by the window, and the repair wasn't done exceptionally well, but it had no effect on us having our weekend away from it all.
We did have a great time at the bar in the evenings after our exploring and dinners out - good, fun staff there who enjoyed making my favourite cocktails. Dessert was also good there.. yum... and breakfast in the morning was included in our rate. Good selection, table service, and exceptionally quick service were the norm, both mornings. And checkout was 12, not 11, just that extra bit of time for my husband to climb Arthur's Seat before leaving while I caught up with the rest of the world on the hotel's WiFi connection (also no problem here).
Checkout - efficient, pleasant - again I have to say the staff were SO friendly.. you forget what life is like outside London!
