Absolutely loved this hotel. The location was fantastic, nearby to many shops, restaurants, and even Calton Hill. The breakfast was great - big portions, good selection and worth every penny. The room was big and clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Also, the hair dryer in the room was one of the best I've ever had provided at the hotel. I would absolutely stay here and again and doubt I will even look at any other hotels.

No rewards offered
Hotel was good however as per booking terms we should have been offered a welcome drink, no mention of this at all and something Hotels should make sure happens, also glad I did not have mobility issues we were on floor 8A which meant the elevator did not go to this floor and we had to climb a flight of stairs, Hotel is good

Apex Waterloo Place Edinburgh GREAT HOTEL!
The whole of the stay was great - the front desk staff were efficient and helped us when we were tired after a long journey (made more complicated by the train strikes) - the gym/pool was lovely & we used it everyday. Tea and coffee in the room much needed. Comfie bed. Big TV. Great wi-fi. Delicious and plentiful breakfast. The staff in the breakfast room & the restaurant were BRILLIANT! We loved our time there, great value for money, brilliant location, all good. Will definitely recommend & return as soon as we can.
