6/10 Good

Disappointed

It started at the booking in reception, I booked a twin room only to be told it was a double. The receptionist said they would get this sorted and would call me on my mobile when the room was ready NO CALL.We went back to the Hotel several hours later the bedding had been changed to single which I can honestly say for the price we had paid did not reflect what we expected the sheets did not fit the bed correctly, no fridge or drinks chiller and the room was very small once the beds we moved to make into singles. Now we move on to Breakfast it was Ok and that's the best I could say. It's certainly not 4* in this Hotel in my opinion it maybe in the Apex International obviously they class the city as the overflow which does not reflect in it's tariffs.

The best thing about my stay was...

Close to the Castle

A room change made all the difference

Upon arrival found carpark full and had to park in sister hotel next door which was not a problem. (Fee applies) Room on top floor was adequate ,but on our return to the room after eating out at restraunt we found roof fans very noisy and went to see night manager who was aware of the noise as he explained that the previuos guests had also complained ( Why put some one in there?) After a sleepless night we were moved to a lower room which was much cleaner & very quiet.The staff were very helpfull and always pleasent. Hotel is located approx 5 mins walk from castle. Excellent location with bars & restraunts over the road.

Very central for all attractions

On arrival found the reception staff very welcoming and room was very comfortable. the location is very central for exploring old Edinburgh and has nice views of the castle. Lots of pubs and eateries on your doorstep. The only negative I would say was the lack of car parking facilities. there is a small carpark but it is shared between the Apex City hotel and its sister hotel just a few blocks away, so its a first come first serve basis.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location and the spectacular views of the castle

Perfect location. Super comfy bed!

We had a wonderful stay at the ApexCity hotel. The bed was soooo comfy, the t.v. huge, the internet free, and the staff incredibly helpful with any and every request. You can see the castle perched on a hill as you walk out of the hotel lobby. THat is to say, the location is superb.

Another Great Stay!

This was our 2nd visit to the Apex City this year and, again, we were very impressed. The location is fantastic for all the major tourist attractions with the Royal Mile only a couple of minutes walk away and Princes St a short walk. Our room was spacious & clean with a fantastic view of the Castle. For the price and the location would highly recommend it.

Great Hotel, Great Location. Friendly staff and use of facilities 2 doors down at the Apex International. Car Park was £8 for 24hrs, bargain! Food and Drink excellent and possibly one of the nicest and best located hotels in the old town. Will visit again.

Miss

When I initially booked to stay at the Apex City, I was really impressed by the reviews and how the hotel looked on the website. I was excited to be spending the easter weekend there. Well the city itself is amazing and we were blessed with fantastic weather. The hotel was every bit as I imagined in a perfect location with great views of Edinburgh castle. The breakfast was lovely with very friendly and helpful staff. I would highly reccomend Apex city. My only disappointments were the lack of hairdryer and the fact the internet took ages to load up websites. Apart from this, I would stay here again
