Good for a family trip

Pros: The staff were very attentive. The hotel was in a very central location.
Cons: The noise that could be heard from the street could be heard in our first floor room all night. Maybe they shouldn't place families so close to the pub/bar goers.
Location: Edinburgh castle can be seen from most rooms. The zoo is only 15 minute drive away, and the royal mile also has loads of street performances and shops

Great trip

Lovely hotel and staff with a wonderful view of the castle. In a great spot close to pubs and clubs, and walking distance from Prince's street

Friendly and attentive staff

We stayed for 2 nights here. On arrival we were greeted by the smiling reception staff and had an interesting conversation with the Spanish member of staff concerned. So much better than the usual formulaic corporate-speak. Later we had a personalised service from the bar supervisor who was fully engaged with our requirements - offering helpful additional information. And finally at check out the staff were very helpful too. All in all, a very distinctive service. And the room was warm and comfortable. We will be back.

2x Family Rooms

For the price paid I am a bit disappointed with this Hotel, the windows in the room were dirty which is a shame as the surroundings outside the Hotel were lovely. The rooms were otherwise clean, comfy Beds and the Pool was just OK, a bit tacky with the metal floor and the fact people from the Street could see in through the Windows! Breakfast was tasty but my main gripe was how long it took from ordering it to getting it, over half an hour! I had a Train to catch so felt a bit rushed when it did eventually arrive.

Awesome Girls Weekend

Had a fabulous girls weekend in Edinburgh. The Apex Hotel is very central and located on Grassmarket which was ideal for us. This is actually our 2nd stay at this Hotel and we found that they staff were just as friendly as the 1st time. Would definitely stay at the Apex on our 3rd visit, see you in a years time!

Great location, tired hotel

The location in Grassmarket is fantastic for everything in Edinburgh. The hotel was ok. It is a bit tired and in need of refurbishment. Our room was a bit noisy and one window didn't close properly The staff were always polite and helpful.
