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!

Good Hotel but issues with building works!!
First I’d like to say the hotel itself was good & staff where both professional & helpful. It has a good location for central Edinburgh but on the negative side the hotel is being refitted on the 8th floor & there is a huge building project directly outside the back of the hotel that kicks off around 07.30 every day. It’s very very noisy so not a place for a relaxing quiet getaway! Sadly the building works wasn’t brought to my attention prior to the stay so disappointed all round on the prior notification not happening & disruption it caused during the stay! This has been reported to the management but I’ve not had an explaination or response yet! Until the building works are complete I’d recommend accommodation elsewhere!

Ok for a night for me
No real character to the hotel although looks nice, everything drink wise is expensive but food is very nice, felt I was just a money bag to be honest. Heating switched off in night as if was on a timer.

Tastefully elegant hotel. My only complaint was that we expected breakfast, but discovered, after we had eaten, that our special price did not include breakfast. That information should have been available prior to,our visit.
