We stayed two nights at this wonderful hotel. We loved the location, and the room was comfortable, spacious and very clean, with a balcony and wonderful views of the Castle. Will definitely stay again :)

Very good 8.0
Central location for sightseeing
Selected this hotel because of its central location and on site parking (under hotel at £12 per night) which suited us for our 2 night sightseeing of Edinburgh. The room was spacious and had a great view of the castle as advertised. Bathroom was clean and roomy with shower and bath. Breakfast was excellent with wide choice and quickly served even in very busy times. Evening menu was simple fare well prepared and presented and very tasty. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay. Only downside was the lack of drawer space in the room and the warm temperature which we could not seem able to control. Overall a good hotel, well staffed and centrally located.

Nice hotel / downhill stay
2 ngt break. First night went well and we had a great day. Second night went totally downhill. I took ill and ended up in Edinburgh Royal infirmary. Problem was called 111 for NHS help and they did help but!!! For some reason I do not know or understand NHS would not sent me any patient transport to the hospital. I had to get a taxi £15 and my breathing was really bad. I just did not know what was going on. The second night of my stay at the Apex was my free night and never got to enjoy it as in A&E and kept in for a few days. So very disappointed to have lost my free night. !!!!! Do hope to go back to this another time and stay as looked good and would have liked to try the pool and dinner out.
