    Historical Traveler Reviews Apex City Hotel Edinburgh

    Love the place

    from

    Stayed here from 9/21/04 to 9/24/04.

    highly recommend if you are visiting edinburgh for tourist purposes. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful, rooms are great and have lots of nice touches

    (tea-coffee making stuff is excellant and large in quantity, towel-warmers, glass water bottles for free).

    Staff was always attentive-- they brought us bottle of ice-cold water to our room within 5 minutes of call free of charge. Location is very good. only drawback is that only one lothian bus (no. 2) crosses here..

    -but you can get off at south-bridge/chambers street and take a shortcut.

    Loved the rubber ducky !!!

    from

    Great location if a bit noisy at the weekend. Well deserves its 4 star rating, room was spacious, huge (6ft) bed, great TV, great bathroom (with rubber ducky), stylish, very helpful staff. I'm normally very critical but for once I couldn't find a single fault. Definitely will stay there again.

    Good Hotel in a great location

    from

    Stayed at the Apex City for 5 nights. Gassmarket is a good location both to the Old Town as well as the New Town. Lots of pubs and small stores around. We had rooms looking over the grassmarket and the castle. Good sized, clean rooms, great walk in showers. (Some work could be done on the water pressure though..) Good breakfast, friendly staff. Would stay again there next time!

    Excellent standard and location at Apex City Hotel

    from

    Excellent hotel that is very central. Rooms large and very well furnished...rather Scandinavian styling. Good rates can be obtained here from a number of web brokers and a first rate breakfast can be included in the price. We stayed here for three nights and would have no hesitation in re-booking.

    Lovely chintz free hotel!

    from

    Great hotel, no chintz, very contempory without being achingly minimal :-) Confortable spacious room which was clean, fresh and well planned. Bathroom had a wet room shower and we loved the free rubber duck, two of those went home in our bags! Good food both in the restaurant and room service. Friendly helpful staff. Location was good with a short but stiff uphill walk to Edinburgh's haymarket, best to get a taxi to Waverley Sation if you have luggage. We were lucky and got a room wit a view of the castle.

    Great Place!

    from

    We found this to be a great hotel. It is in a great location; very close to the Royal Mile and the Waverly train station we came in at. The various tour busses of the city stop right in front of the hotel and there are many little shops and pubs on the same street and more within walking distance. We chose just a standard room, but it was very nice and roomy. It had a nice sitting area and the bed was just fine. The room was always clean and the bathroom had a separate bath and shower. It even has a DVD player and you can rent DVDs. The front desk was helpful and had a cab waiting for us when we checked out. We would stay here again, it was very nice.

    Excellent value - great rooms

    from

    Stayed at the Apex City last weekend and had a great experience. We got a very low rate, room only, from Laterooms.com and went to a good cafe down the road for breakfast - bkfst-in-bed trolleys for ?11 looked just okay. The bar is very smart but service there a little slow. Bedooms were really modern, stylish, great beds, dvd/cd players, bath + wet room + very nice toiletries provided in bathroom. Apex City is in the best location - old part of town, cool boutiques and restaurants, 10 mins walk to the main drag. The staff were very helpful - efficiently calling taxis, stowing valuables, providing quick room service. I'd DEFINITELY stay here on my next visit to Edinburgh.

    Pleasant stay

    from

    On a weekend break we decided on the Apex City. We stayed in a standard double room and were pleased with the space afforded us. The double bed was very comfortable. and the rubber duck in the bathroom delighted our toddler! We took room service breakfast - very nice, but on the second day we didn't get any butter for our toast, nor a bowl for our cereal! Excellent location - very close to everything. Only grouch was the cost of the Agua restaurant meal on our first night. £71 for two (plus inedible pizza for daughter which she shunned!). Very pricey meal considering the creme brulee was more like a chocolate mousse! Over all however, I would recommend the Apex City for luxury facilities in a very good location.

    Quite nice - very contemporary

    from

    Apex was very nice indeed and you get to keep the rubber duck!

    Bathrooms were great - heated mirrors and the colour scheme was very contemporary and calming. Room service was Fabulous! and breakfasts were brilliant. Staff were lovely. Only slight problem was they don't change the sheets every night and the room could have been slightly cleaner (maybe we just had a duff maid that day). Would definitely stay again, highly recommended. Very close to the centre of things.

    City De-lights

    from

    Been to Edinburgh before and always fancied a stay here - was excellent.

    Rooms are all new and very clean/tidy. Large bathroom with really good 'walk-in' shower, great feature!

    Tasteful decor in rooms and bed comfy. Big TV and DVD player in room as well.

    Staff were good on the whole, but try and smile please!

    We'll be back when next in town.

    Arrived at 11ish and put our baggage into left luggage at the station - prob too east to check in to the hotel. It's a beautiful day here in Edinburgh, typical! Well you've seen the forecast for tomorrow! First stop, Cotswolds for a waterproof phone cover (I think I'm gonna need it!!). Then it was time for a spot of lunch. We headed to Jamie's …

    ... being a fishing town. After lunch we took in a cliff top walk along the edge of Howth, getting utterly drenched by a good Irish downpour. We got to see Howth lighthouse, and the permanent destruction an arsonist caused to the landscape nearly 15 years ago, as Irish seaside habitat, unlike Australian bush, does not regenerate post fire. Luckily the cliff top path was enough to stop the fire in its path otherwise the destruction may have been far worse! We stopped ...

    So as you can see no matter what you did, you ended up dead; i guess thats one way of teaching someone not to steal, lie or cheat!

    The worst example of torture to be dealt with on that monument was done to a Scottish King who was believed to have done wrong by the Scottish people by betraying them. (It is still unsure if there is any truth to that or if the King of England just wanted an excuse to take over the Scottish Kingdom, but nonetheless ...

    ... atmosphere of a pub on the main street drew us in; as soon as I was close enough to see the steak and ale pie on the menu outside I knew we had go in!

    Yummmm in was great. My friend Meghan recommended I try this British delicacy and I'm so glad I did. James has fish and chips again and said it was the best one yet. Mum had these awesome smoked fish cakes. I tried to order cranachan for dessert but was denied! Because the authentic Scottish dessert ...

    ... shoulder also glued to the TV didn't even cast an eye at him- again, is that how they stay out of trouble? Sunshine and blue skies encouraged us to walk on up to Calton Hill, home to monument follies such as the roman pillars that were never finished but which make an impressive skyline. Wonderful views over all sides of the city including Arthur's Seat, the fault structures. Ate at Howies as recommended by Paula and Dave's friends and ...
