    Nice hotel in good location, lovely decor and quality finishing.

    The hotel was incredibly hot with no air conditioning and windows that did not open sufficiently. With such low ceilings the atmosphere was stifling making time in the lovely hotel room very uncomfortable. The fan provided had no effect what so ever.

    The hotel was in an excellant location, a good value, friendly staff, good services. This was the first hotel we stayed in Scotland that had computers with free internet access. We were very pleased with our overall experience.

  • Older travelers

    It was alright but would not return its far too noisy and very expensive

    As above its a hotel thats been well used and is showing its age never a 4 star and not worth the money we paid I expected a lot more

  • Couple

    Really great location just behind the Castle and a short walk up the hill through the gardens to the centre of Edinburgh. Lovely breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful. Cant fault it really. Thought it was really good value for money

    The parking is at the back of the Apex Intl. I didnt think that was very clear in the hotel description.

  • Single

    I like the location the most. Rooms were also decent, and you can tell that the Apex group is making an effort to provide good service and think of the details. The hotel is just below the castle on Grassmarket. There are pubs and shops right there, or it is a short walk up the hill/stairs to the Royal Mile and the castle. It's another short walk to the other side of the tracks to Princes and Rose streets. The hotel is not inexpensive, but compare to other prices, it is a good value for Edinburgh.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were extremeley helpful and friendly at all times. The bed and pillows were really comfortable andit was good having a bath and shower. The hotel was in an excellent position for sightseeing and shopping in Edinburgh located just below the castle.The house red is pricey at £11.90 for 2 large glasses but was gorgeous.

    The food was fine but not up to the prices charged. Our evening meal cost £71 with wine and although good wasn't exceptional e.g. the carrots (an extra £2.95) were tasteless.Equally the cooked scottish breakfast was well cooked but the ingredients used weren't of the highest quality.Our room was no bigger than a budget hotel room.

    Friendly staff!

    The temperature in the hotel (room) was rather warm. The airco could not cool it down.

    convenience and location

    room we stayed in didn't have much of a view- room 3126

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The location of the hotel is fantastic well suited for anyone who wants to look around the city and has never been before as the majority of the attractions are easily reached

    It failed to live up to our expectations of its sister hotel the international a few doors away

  • Older travelers

    friendly helpful staff, excellent location, impeccably clean
