We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour group. We were greeted on arrival and handed our keys without needing to give a credit card. That meant we paid for drinks etc. as we went along rather than charging them to the room....More
My wife and I combined a first trip to Edinburgh with a night at the Opera and our Wedding anniversary. I booked with Apex directly in January and found the service and their willingness to price match excellent. On arrival the welcome was as i...More
Loved the location of this hotel, staff helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and well appointed, definitely would stay here again. Came with a tour and extended our stay two additional days beyond. Very comfortable place to stay.
This is not what I would consider a Luxury hotel. It was very expensive during the August Fringe Festival and not good value for money. Thought the bath was fairly spacious and modern by UK standards, the shower floor grout was mildewed, showing signs of...More
Stayed here for 4 nights with my son in a twin room. Was given room 1018 in the eaves -very small but wheelchair accessible and no door on the shower. I booked 2 months earlier - you think you would be offered a decent room...More

Dear Julie P
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It is disappointing to learn that the initial room allocated to you was not to your liking but I am pleased that were able to move you to a more suitable room...More
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.
