    Fantastic location with amazing views of the castle.

    5/5 Excellent

    A very modern and comfortable hotel in the city center. Vey close to shops, great restaurants and some tourist attractions. Grassmarket Street is picturesque and a lively area.

    4/5 Good

    Hotel was clean and nicely kept. Modern decor. Comfortable bed. I was put into a handicap accessible room, which was all right except for bathroom sink. It was really, really low — like it came only to mid thigh. Very uncomfortable and awkward. Shower also had no curtain or divider, which meant that water went all over.

    4/5 Good

    The Apex was central to many things including Edinburgh Castle but more important close to the National Museum. No air conditioning and as the heat would not go below 22c I had to open the window at night. Then the street noises were allowed in, The staff were great, helpful and the restaurant was very good.
