excellent in city, near train

For us, this was a great choice. We arrived by train, the hotel elevator connects to the train station. We departed by express airport bus, which leaves from the bridge in front of the station. The hotel has been extensively modernized, is surprisingly quiet inside for the central downtown location. Rooms are modern, comfortable, very large bath with separate shower - much nicer and spacious than I expected. Absolutely central location for numerous restaurants, downtown,walking to old town, etc.

1st Scotland visit

We arrived mid-afternoon for a brief 2 night stay in Edinburgh. Quick walk - 5 minutes - from Waverly train station to Apex Waterloo. Nice room, helpful staff. Close to restaurants & bus tours. Would stay here again.

Perfect for mini break

Great hotel in great location to explore the city of Edinburgh, conveniently situated 5 minutes walk from Waverley train station where you can pick up the airport link bus. Positioned at quiet end of street but so close to the shops and 10 minutes walk to the Royal Mile.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You can take the #100 Express bus to (and from) the airport for 3.50 (pounds) one way, 6 pounds RT. It's about a thirty-minute commute. The bus stop is about three blocks from the hotel.
