    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.

    ... interesting. Quoting from the brochure, ‘This exhibition displays thirty sheets of Leonardo’s groundbreaking investigations into the workings of the human body’. It was amazing to be looking at anatomical diagrams and illustrations produced by Da Vinci hundreds of years ago. According to the experts, his work is also amazingly accurate.

    Whilst this exhibition hadn’t been on my list of things to do, I was ...

    We spend the day in Edinburgh today having an explore around. First stop is Edinburgh Castle, which perches over the city, constant reminding you of its grand scale and important place in the history of Edinburgh.

    After a 20 minute or so wait for tickets we are ready to start our visit. Out timing is good, only a few minutes to wait for a short guided tour so we can get our bearings. Turns out to be a ...

    I departed from the cast to meet with Louis and Brian to go over details and summarize our experience both good and bad. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with both of them and they are stand up people. I would not hesitate at all at working with them again. The are working on a massive West End project for next year, so they ...

    ... Mom and I went in Business Class from Newark to Lima, Peru. Back then, the cabin was fitted with 16 standard recliner-style seats with 55" of pitch. The new BF cabin is so much nicer – a really great use of space. I’m amazed they were able to squeeze the same number of flat-bed seats into the space previously occupied by the 16 recliner seats.

    Ahhhh, it’s so nice to finally be on a flight after having Lagos and Berlin fall through. Edinburgh ...

    ... we went to The Elephant Bar, which is where JK Rowling started writing Harry Potter! It was pretty cool, plus, we had not realized why it was so busy, so it was pretty cool to get to say we ate lunch and had tea there.

    From there it was time to say goodbye to Scotland. We hopped on the train headed back to London. Scotland was so wonderful to get to see! I was so happy I got to go to Edinburgh with Matt.
