Apex Grassmarket Hotel, Edinburgh
Sweet staff, poorly maintained
Mixed review. The location & staff were enjoyable, however for the price the condition was not acceptable. 1) Two elevators , one was shut down for 4 days while the other one worked sometimes. Being located on the 5th floor was exhausting climbing the stairsafter long days of walking. Many people like myself chose not to go to their rooms in the middle of the day to drop off items and freshen up due to the climb up the stairs. The room phone never worked. Which meant I used my U. S. cell phone to dial international long distance for room service or the front desk. The shower didn't work, the buttons were stuck , that was fixed. There is no thermostat therefore you have the window open or closed. The staff tried to make up for the deficits by offering a bottle of wine and a 10 pound drink coupon. Bottom line the hotel maintainence was in bad repair at the height of the busy season charging $370 a night. I think the management should prepare for their busy month and have had their elavators rebuilt in July also review all rooms to be in working order. ( I was told the elevator motors were old ) Additionally there were mutiple groups staying at much lower rates . I don't recommend this hotel at this price unless you want to pay to enjoy the sweet staff and location. If your looking for quality to be price comparable there is the Waldorf or the Balmoral if your looking for location there is the Grassmarket Hotel on the corner . It's a small clean boutique hotel.
