2x Family Rooms

Would recommend Fri, Jan 8, 2016
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

Would recommend Thu, Nov 19, 2015
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!

Good value for money in the best location

Would recommend Mon, Oct 5, 2015
Nice room. It was great to come back to a nice modern room in Edinburgh after traveling in Scotland and staying at simple B&B's. the location is perfect for sightseeing and for bars and restaurants. Tip - The breakfast is good value for money. When you tell the hotel the night before you get it for 10 GBP instead of15 and totally worth it !!!

Great location, tired hotel

Would not recommend Thu, Sep 3, 2015
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.

Good Hotel Near the Attractions

Would recommend Thu, Aug 6, 2015
I was very pleased to have selected Apex International for my stay in Edinburgh. The hotel is only a short distance from the Royal Mile. It is an uphill walk to the Royal Mile, but that means it's a downhill walk on the way back to the hotel. Grassmarket is a busy area with pubs and restaurants and an active nightlife in the evening. Because of that, there can be some noise from the street, but it didn't prevent anyone in my family from getting sleep. The room and hotel were clean and the staff was very friendly. I would stay there again.

Conveniently located, modern clean facility, friendly staff, and a fabulous breakfast. Only negative was the street noise heard in the rooms facing the main street of Grassmarket. Rooms were stocked with foam ear plugs to help when sleeping.
