Apex Waterloo Place Hotel - Edinburgh
Good6.0
Clean and new hotel in great location
Apex Waterloo is located 5 minutes' walk from the train station and about 10-15 minutes' walk to either Old Town or New Town, which made it very convenient for us to explore Edinburgh. The room was as depicted; it was spaciouus, clean and in good condition and the service staff was helpful and friendly. We dined at the restaurant one evening and the service there was excellent (food was reasonably priced and quite good too). Two thumbs up!

Breakfast worth the wait
Very nice hotel, but not happy to find half used toiletries in bathroom, quite a wait for a table at breakfast, but well worth the wait. Room was quiet even though it was rugby weekend and bed was comfortable

Nice place to stay with helpful and friendly staff
Friendly and helpful staff. Congerge was very helpful. Great location. Nice pool and small but ok gym on a great location down town Edinburgh. One minor, we get very sick from the dinner in the hotel restaurant. I got a full refund and a well meant apologize, but still sick. Can not happen in a 4* hotel.
