    Excellent location in the old city of Edinburgh;Grassmarket street is a peaceful spot .The square;,surrounded by several Pubs and Restaurants. French,Italian.. And of course Scottish Pubs where you even can have a small meal.,and enjoy live music late afternoon/night. Suberb musicians at some pubs. The hotel staff were in my opinion excellent; I would definately stay there again.(though a little overpriced..;but..we are talking about the main city of Edinburgh) The outdoor pavillon on the backside of the hotel closes at 23.pm.What a pity!A nice garden with palmtrees and comfortable chairs,hope they will remain opened until midnight. ----------------------------------- Don´t hesitate to visit "maison bleue"; a french/maroccan restaurant just about 200 m away from the hotel.

    Nice hotel, right on the grasmarket! View of castle with superior room.

    Small things such as paint work not finished round the doorframe in bathroom. Such a shame as room and hotel in general is lovely. Also upgraded to a superior room as a treat for my auntie as you had the robes and slippers etc. however - they did not have this. Bit of a shame as such a small thing adds to the experience.

  • Older travelers

    loved the location ,the friendly staff ,and how clean everything was .loved the view at breakfast of the castle a definite plus .

    very hard to find a fault if you pushed me on this i thought the breakfasts were a bit pricey and the drink was a bit on the expensive side but you are a hotel and i expect to pay a bit more but to be honest it is hard to find something that i really did,nt like .

    Pleasant welcoming staff. In particular "well done" to the young receptionist who was sufficiently observant to notice I had a small problem when paying (related to the booking arrangements), and who had sufficient authority to resolve the problem in one movement and with the words "we want to give you reasons to come back to us, and not the opposite...".

    The initial lack of a similar attitude when the problem arose during booking.

    We were upgraded which made our romantic break with a view of the castle extra special. The meal in the top floor restaurant was really good and it was a good idea to have a set menu with a few choices, the beef was exquisite.

    Location fabulous looking directly at Edinburgh Castle and in the popular Grassmarket area with many pubs, restaurants, shops and tourist venues. Room also had a bathtub which is unusual in European cities.

    Very Noisy on the Grassmarket side; should have been tipped off when I noticed sets of earplugs put beside the bed. However, it was still a great location and I would stay there again. Bar service was a bit slow.

    We liked the location as it was near to everything in the city centre. We loved the view of the castle from our room, we liked the little touches in the room like the bottled water in the fridge, the sweets and biscuits and the luxury toiletries. The swimming pool was very nice.

    We did think that the bathroom could do with a couple more hooks to hang the towells on after they had been used and the shower needed a bit more water pressure as the water did not come out very fast!

    Very helpful reception staff. Clean, light room. Thoughtful touches like providing a bathmat and rubber duck as well as a cot (crib). Great Location. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel if it wasn't for an uncomfortable bed.

    An uncomfortable, cheap mattress (we were constantly rolling together during the night) and an icy draught from a window that wouldn't close spoilt an otherwise excellent room. The room had obviously been recently refurbished but there were no plug sockets by the bedside tables.

    Sepite being a very busy weekend the staff were all very friendly and helpful - no request was too much. We had two lovely rooms overlooking the castle - I would recommend the view.

    Very good hotel. Nice room with a fabulous view towards the Castle. Restaurant on the 5th floor has a super view and although I didn't have dinner there, the breakfast was very good.

  • Group of friends

    The staff at the Apex International were lovely. The hotel and rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a great location on the grassmarket, short walk to Royal Mile and views of the castle. Just round corner to Greyfriars Bobby for those interested.

    One of the downsides to our stay at the hotel was that our castle view room also looked out on to the Grassmarket where there are many pubs and can get noisy at night. This didn't bother me but my husband made use of the earplugs which the hotel provide.. Also on checking out the hotel kept our bags for us to go back for as we had a late train, they had trouble finding one of our groups bags, it was very busy, but I felt they could have had a better system for storing the bags. We had given ourselves plenty of time so made our train, but there was a bit of a panic..

    The whole experience was fantastic. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The view from our room was amazing and the service was great.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Nice swimming pool at street level - though private enough. Breakfast in 5th floor restuarant with superb views of Edinburgh Castle

    Although it was not an issue for me I was struck by the difficulty that disabled guests would meet. There were a lot of steps into the main lobby and no evident lifts
