              Good in General

              Professionally run hotel well-located for walking around best parts of town for sight-seeing. Room was compact, everything worked well, quiet and comfortable sleeping (room not on street side). Good for tourist excursion but not if you want a boutique special kind of hotel experience.

Rooms were clean and comfortable with good bathroom amenities, tea and coffee making available in the room. Breakfast was £15pp which is a bit steep so we had breakfast at a local cafe, there are loads to choose from. Great hotel in the perfect location for a weekend in Edinburgh.

Unaware about location of pool, if I had used this I had to walk out front door on to Main Street and go to another entrance , did not fancy doing this to come back wet in the cold and dark. Maybe there was an interior walk way but no one offered any info on this .

              lacking service, unworthy of a four star rating”

              We had the master suite. It was nice but far from impressive. I had quite a few issues with the service. we wanted room service, and order a couple of drinks. Firstly the staff wanted us to come to the restaurant and bring the drinks up ourselves. What's the point of room service then? Secondly after leaving my credit card with them they only allowed us to make a purchase for two people of a maximum 25 pounds. you can't get anything for two people for that limitation. I've never experienced this before in my life, nor did I get an explanation for this. Service is of very low standard for a 4 star hotel, I will not be returning as a guest to this hotel.

              Pros: Our room was comfy and clean, bed was comfortable! Had a good sleep that night. the room is complete with everything that we need. Love the bathroom! this hotel is situated pretty close to Arthur's Seat which is even better. Con: might have to walk quite abit if you are travelling via bus as the Edinburgh bus station is situated pretty far from Apex City. But overall, our stay in this hotel is great! will definitely come back and stay here if im visiting Edinburgh again next time.

              The lovely friendy staff. The beautiful room. The location

              Had a lovely relaxing 3 day break at the Apex city hotel. Every single staff member where so friendy and so professional. Our room had the most amazing view of Edinburgh castle. It was my husbands 30th birthday and he had a cake in our room and 2 free drinks waiting for us at the bar. The food was beautiful and i just cant wait to go back. Thank you apex hotel xx
