Great find, good value

Pros: Showers
Cons: Hotel desk staff could use a little energy
Location: Right at the heart of everywhere you want to be.
This hotel had a fantastic location, was clean, and a nice find. I would stay here again. The shower was awesome, too! Not the most spacious room, so if there are two or more people you may feel cramped. Desk staff were fine, just far from the niceness we experienced everywhere else in Edinburgh. Good value.

Smaller room but in excellent location

Pros: Location, cleanliness, nice room
Location: In the heart of Edinburgh within walking distance of Edinburgh Castle, rail station, and many other attractions.
The Apex is within walking distance of the Edinburgh rail station, Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile and many other interesting sites. Restaurant is smaller, but food is excellent and staff very knowledgeable. The location was perfect.

Nice hotel in Old Town

Pros: Location and fridge in room, the hotel restaurant was good too,
Cons: Room temperature control
Location: Castle, high road shopping, dining out.
Very close to the castle. Within walking distance to new town and shopping. City center about 15 to 20 mins walking, depending on your pace. Had a few issues with our room, but the staff was very responsive and great to work with.

Excellent location, right below Edinburgh Castle

Pros: It is clean, attractive, nice sized rooms and wonderful bathrooms!
Cons: The food in the resturaunt was very good but the staff seemed overwhelmed and the prices a little high. The food in the local square was just as good
Location: So close to all the best attractions in Edinburgh. We loved the shopping in the area and the resturaunts were very good and affordable.
We were pleasantly surprised to find this European style hotel in the Grassmarket Square of Edinburgh. We were close to the beloved Edinburgh Castle and some delicious places to eat.
