Great stay in Apex City of Edinburgh
Hotel was in a great location. Staff was very helpful and room was always cleaned well. One evening the fire alarms went off (someone overheated their curling iron) and the situation was handled very efficiently. I would definitely recommend this hotel, as it was recommended to me by a good friend in Scotland.
