Great location but not much else

Front desk staff and location
Below average. Hotel was extremely overpriced for what you got. Staff in the breakfast area were rude, service was slow and disorganized (we waited in line for 20 minutes when there were tons of empty tables) and breakfast was poor. Hotel rooms were tiny and pillows had stains on them.

Has anybody seen the Castle?

Loation, Car parking and I don't think there is a third.
1. I was unable to amend my booking on your system (unproffesional) 2. Your staff said they were unable to help (very unproffesional) 3. one room was not ready at the hotel, had too wait two hours. 4. Despite staying at this hotel four times I have yet to be given a room with a view of the castle. This time I had a view of a wall eight feet from my window (thank you) 5. Paintwork peeling in room (eyesore) 6. F & B charges aginst the room my Children were staying in which were not ours????

Perfect location and view

The view allows me to look at the beautiful Edinburgh castle. The breakfast was nice. It is situated at the middle of old time that made accessable to all I want to see as a visitor with a short time.
The room was comfortable with friendly staffs. I couldn't help thinking that I should have stay on for a few more days in such beautiful city.

Standout staff

The afternoon manager, Peter Binnie, the position and the room
The moment we walked in the front door, we knew we were going to love this hotel. We had the great pleasure of being greeted by Peter Binnie, who was the afternoon manager for our entire stay. He was friendly, engaging and made some great suggestions for places to visit. Even more impressive, as my husband and I were wandering down one of the streets that Peter had recommended to us, who should we bump into, but Peter and, rather than rush past and pretend he hadn't noticed us, he stopped for a chat and pointed out a couple of more things that we might enjoy. Our room was spotless, the beds comfy and the breakfast generous, with probably the best view in Edinburgh, and we found all of the staff to be friendly and helpful, but Peter was an absolute standout. We would definitely book here, again, if we return.

Everything we wanted!

Location is perfect in old town in shadow of the castle, staff were extremely polite & helpful. Even basic rooms were nicely decorated with good facilities
We had a great 5 night stay at the Apex International at a really reasonable price. We has walked through the Grassmarket on a previous visit & love the location, with great views of the castle & some lovely pubs & restaurants right on the doorstep. Staff were very polite & friendly, greeting you every time you walked past the reception desk. Rooms were really well presented with good facilities & were always cleaned even if we had left the room quite late in the morning. Small swimming pool & sauna style room designed more for relaxation than exercise. Overall we could not fault the hotel & had a fantastic stay
