This is the third time we have stayed here so must have worked for us. The weather outside was cold and damp. The room was warm and cosy. The bed was very comfortable. Staff were very pleasant and very helpful. And we got discount for our visit to HMY Britannia. Great. Will be back.

I stayed at this Apex in January 2017 for three nights and I am writing this from the same room less than one week later, with another three nights ahead of me for business purposes. To say that I am content with my lot right now would be wholly accurate. My room (409 - top floor) is not huge, but...

Hotel was in a good location, just 15/20 minute walk from city centre. We booked this hotel because we read online on a hotel booking site that it had free parking, however this was no longer the case and it now costs £8 a day. We decided to move our car elsewhere but the hotel still tried to charge us...

Dear Poly, Thank you for your review. I am sorry if there was a confusion with the car park charges. To the best of our knowledge the hotel does not advertise free parking anywhere as it never has been free. I can only think one of our 3rd party partners that we work with has the incorrect information loaded onto...

Recently stayed in the Apex Haymarket for a girls weekend. The location was perfect - couple of minutes walk from the Tram which made transfer to and from the airport ideal. It was a short but enjoyable walk into town. The front desk staff were really helpful and friendly which always helps and the room itself was flawless. It was...

Stayed in this hotel. Got a great prepaid rate and couldn't fault the hotel - clean bedrooms , comfortable beds, nice breakfast, friendly staff , great location. Would definitely go back. The only but very small quibble would be that parts of the bathroom could do with a little maintenance and repair.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
