Fab family fun

The staff were so friendly & helpful. The room itself was a good size but with the sofa bed pulled down there was no room to walk around. The room was very warm but there was an oscillating fan. The hotel does not have a swimming pool but you can use the pool in their sister hotel which is a 10 metres walk away.

Great location with helpful staff

Lovely hotel in a great location with nice clean rooms. Staff were very friendly. Only little gripe I had was room on fourth floor seemed very noisy, at first thought it was just the heater/air com but when this was off still there. They did offer to move me to another room but decided against it as I had ear plugs and at the time did think it was the air com. Lovely hot Scottish breakfast and staff were so on the ball which was great to see. Excellent shops and bars all close by, yes it can be a bit hilly but you can use the hop on and hop off bus which we done.

Fantastic Location in Edinburgh

After driving around this city a bit, there's no better location within it than the Apex City of Edinburgh. Right in the heart of one of the most charming districts, there is plenty of food and good authentic liquor to be had nearby. You're also a short walk to all of the central areas of the town, including the castle hill. The hotel itself is fairly modern with good service and well cared for common areas. The rooms are also nice and large and well taken care of.

Nice sized room in a very central location. Staff were very friendly and breakfasts cooked to order instead of the usual buffet.

Nice hotel and great location

Had a lovely stay at the Apex City Edinburgh. Rooms are comfortable. Lighting could be a bit better and I would prefer if they had safes installed in all rooms. Breakfast was tasty and there was a good selection. I would recommend this hotel to friends and I would stay there again.
