Fabulous 8.6 From 1,199 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Terrific hotel in a great location
Really nice hip hotel in a nice hip area! Great overall stay, extremely comfortable room (and very spacious for Europe!) The area is quite loud at night, not much the hotel can do about that -- be warned, you may want earplugs, especially on the weekend. Walkable to all the top tourist sights plus about a thousand bars. Good bar in the hotel--service slightly slow, but the staff was super friendly. And they have food service late, which was great the night we got in when kitchens were closed in the local pubs. There are actually two Apex hotels on the Grassmarket, we tried to check in at the wrong one and they helpfully looked up the reservation and pointed us in the right direction.

A little climb but great location.
The hotel is location is great, in the center of everything. The rooms and bed were good, only problem was the mold in the shower. I advised reception but it was not cleaned. There is onsite parking which was a big plus for us. There are about 15 stair steps to climb up to the reception desk and to use when you go in or out of the hotel. Breakfast at the hotel is good. If you do not mind the stairs I recommend the hotel. l
