Apex City of Edinburgh Hotel, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Edinburgh holiday
Apex City Hotel is in a prime location, close to local attractions, shops & pubs. 5 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle. Staff very friendly & helpful. Room 315 has a fantastic view of Edinburgh Castle & was huge. Would definitely recommend this hotel to our family & friends & would stay here again if ever we revisit Edinburgh.

This hotel was everything you could ask for. The room layout was perfect. Great lighting and lots of power points. Extremely convenient location for exploring the city on foot. Fabulous bathroom with separate shower and bath. Such a bonus....the mirror doesn’t fog up

Great loaction on Grassmarket
We had a very good five night stay at the Apex City of Edinburgh while on vacation from Australia. The location in the heart of the city is very convenient although this sometimes brings a bit of noise disturbance especially on a Saturday night. Parking our car was never a problem as the sister hotel next door had a large car park which could be used if our smaller one filled up. We had a very spacious and comfortable suite which served well although the design of the lighting was strange in that it wasn't where it was most required. The view of the castle right outside our window was a great bonus! The dining room was of a reasonable standard for breakfast and for dinner but, with many good restaurants on the door step, there were plenty of choices for dining. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

Apex City of Edinburgh Hotel, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Great hotel. Perfect location. Warm friendly staff. Modern amenities. Down side was that AC was noisy and there was no bag price rate for laundry. In 5 weeks travel the only hotel without a bag rate. But I would stay again.
