We stayed at the Apex International Hotel in Grassmarket in February 2012. We booked an advance purchase/non-refundable rate that was fairly reasonable and included breakfast. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the common areas were nice. The room was a good size compared to other European hotels, and we had a fantastic view of the castle from our room. There are two restaurants where breakfast is offered, but we only went to the one on the top floor of the hotel, which has a great view of the castle. The food was good, but I wouldn't say it was great. The bathroom is a good size and the shower was good - good water temperature and pressure. There is a pool in the hotel, but it is a little strange because it has full windows on the street, which is a major thoroughfare where anyone walking by can look in. The hotel provided an oscillating fan in the room closet, which we used as a "white noise" machine to block out the street noise. It was quite effective and I appreciated that it was there. All in all, I'd recommend this hotel as a good place to say that is centrally located and has clean rooms and friendly staff.
