Apex Grassmarket Does It Again

Stayed here on a recent visit to attend the tattoo. We normally stay at the Apex City a couple of doors up but with no availability decided to stay here & just wow. Rooms, staff & food were up to the usual Apex standard however the view at breakfast is just to die for & this alone would sway me to book there again. Would also chuck in my swimsuit to use the pool as it's not everyday you get that in central Edinburgh. Well worth the money.

The best thing about my stay was...

Staff & location

Great Stay

The Apex hotel had clean and well maintained modern rooms. A fab location near to bars, restaurants and a few shops and the Royal mile. If you can stay in the front as we did, we had an lovely view of Edinburgh castle. I went swimming in the pool in the early hours which was clean and lit. The sauna not too hot and changing rooms and gym area all looks new and well maintained. All in all we would stay again.

The best thing about my stay was...

Swimming pool and views
