Historical Traveler Reviews Apex City Hotel Edinburgh
Love the place
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 !!!
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
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
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!
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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 …
... people here building castles and fighting to the death over their beliefs while Australia remained wild and untamed. Our modern history is so young in comparison. I hope that our ancient history, of the indigenous cultures, can be preserved one day and the stories told like these ones are. Since I was free to explore, I also did a day trip through the Highlands and up to Loch Ness. Nessie has always fascinated me (as does the Canadian version, the Ogopogo!!). I can HIGHLY recommend ...
... the old port area, with new developments on the reclaimed ground, and a vast shopping mall to walk through to get to see the Britannia royal yacht. This is the boat the royals ofter turned up to Australia in, and was decommissioned in 2004, with much of the original furniture...Liz didn't believe in updating things that still worked...good on you Liz. It was a fabulous tour; we really saw ...
... experience and I'm even starting to like cooking (every once and a while). No need to expect high-end gastronomy though, but I do manage to cook healthy and tasty food.
Take a look at some of my realisations so far ...
... Scotland!). Edinburgh proved a great blend of the old and new, with a visit to the imposing Edinburgh Castle perched on its rocky outlook over the city, providing some context to the long history of both the city and castle, along with some fabulous views (and so the reason for building a fortress there!). Our forecasted rainy day (which never rained a drop) visit to the Modern Art Gallery included a killer red onion and brie sandwich ...
