Superb location, excellent room very friendly & helpful staff. Price comparable to other hotels in area which are no where near as good. I would stay at the Apex City if it was available for every visit to Edinburgh.

the quality of the room is out of my expectations. however, the left from ground floor to first floor was suspended due to repairing in reception, it made a bit uncomfortable as I was not good at stairs and choose this hotel reason was the left before.

            The Apex City is situated bang in the middle of Grassmarket with pubs and restaurants all within a short walking distance and the castle just a leisurely 10 minute walk away. 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.

            Arrived mid afternoon alone , waiting on daughter , tried for room service but kitchen had a problem , no food. Dissapointed but no ones fault. 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 .

            Everything about this hotel is awesome - especially the front desk staff. The rooms are very nice - especially the master suite. Room service is very fast. The beds are nice and firm. The A/C is great! Lots of amenities. Great breakfast. Perfect location to all the old town sites. If I had one criticism it would be parking and the heavy traffic in front of the hotel.

            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.

            Moved the beds apart and they haven't vacuumed for months under the bed. Constant doors slamming from the cleaner. One of the cupboards wouldn't open, because the door stop is in the way. Pity if you needed something ironed. The beds are very uncomfortable, because they are extremely bouncy. The room service was actually really good. It is in a central location and does make it easy to get to places. Wouldn't stay here again though.

            This hotel was definitely not good value for money, our full room was about the size of a box bedroom. Bed was comfy although it seemed like our heating didn't work right as the room was freezing the whole time! We spoke to reception about it and they said it's connected the same way the electricity is so that when you put your room card in the wall slot this is when it turns on. What kind of hotel in Scotland in the winter doesn't heat the whole hotel all the time?!! We ended up stepping out into the hall to try warm up! Even after leaving it on all night the room was still ice cold. Also it says they have onsite parking, this means they have about 5 spaces behind the hotel which will be taken unless you get there first thing. Meaning you have to pay to park on the street. Loved the apex Waterloo when we stayed there but definitely won't be back to the apex city of Edinburgh.

            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.
