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!

Apex Waterloo Place Hotel - Edinburgh
Good6.0
We stayed here for two nights and found the stay both good and bad. Whilst the room was comfortable we were most disappointed to find that we were in the extension at the rear of the building with a tiny window high up on the wall so we could not look out. This also meant that the room was dark most of the time. The bath was lovely but the shower head was very small which resulted in an insipid experience. Breakfast had a small selection of starters but a good choice of hot items which had to be ordered in advance. The concierge was very helpful. It was an easy walk to/from the train station.
