Room not ready till late afternoon most days. Staff overworked, I felt. We did get a reasonably quiet room, though not facing inward as we were told. The offices opposite were lit all night and the curtains were not fixed at each end, or long enough to block light. Niggles, I know, but not really 4 star!

Stayed for 2 nights in December 2016 with my partner for a few days break. Fantastic location near to the train station and minutes walk from all shops on Princes Street. Room lovely and clean with a massive bath which my partner was very pleased with! Highly recommended and not too overpriced :)

I stayed here for business, and this hotel has everything one could wish for. Located centrally near the historical part of town as well as close to shopping area, the location is very good. Old building, but seems to be very recently renovated, since everything was top notch. The hotel also comes with a spa and a pretty decent gym....

2nd time staying at the Apex Waterloo. Fantastic service and location . Used the spa for a half day couples retreat package. My husband said the treatments were 1st class and it was more relaxed as we had a couples room making us feel very at ease as the treatments were 2 hours long. Had a great sleep both nights...

The location is in the end of Prince street,close to the railwaystation, whick makes it ideal for shopping or sightseeing. Room was spacious with little signs of ware. Bed was comfable and clean. Bathroom with both shower and tub. However upon arrival there were skittles in several corners and condom wrapping under bed. So cleaning needs to improve.

The service was excellent when we arrived and checked out. Nothing was too much and staff were very helpful and courteous. The room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The bathroom was fantastic with a walk in shower and excellent toiletries.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
