Very nice view from the room of Edinburgh Castle, good location as it was not too far from the centre, the castle is about 50 yards away so not bad at all! Very nice bathroom, and the room was pretty good too. (pillows were very very comfortable too!)

We paid an extra £30 to have a room upgraded to a castle view . We got this however the room only had towels and cups for two people not four . We asked for extra towels but only got them after the first night so had to share wet towels after showering .

We had a wonderful view of the castle. We found our room had been upgraded when we arrived. It was very comfortable - perfect temperature and quiet.

Stayed here after a last minute decision to go to Edinburgh for our anniversary. Located right by the castle, central for everything. Room great, very comfortable. Staff couldn't do enough for us. And the pool and sauna just great after walking around the town. Highly recommended.

First impression was not favourable as the small hotel car park was full and parking in Edinburgh is difficult at the best of times. Having located street parking nearby (free after 6:30 p.m. and on Sundays) the situation improved rapidly. Modern reception area, extremely pleasant and helpful receptionist, reasonable sized room with all amenities, including free wifi and perfect view of the Castle.

We spent four nights over Christmas in the Apex International. We arrived to the pleasant surprise that we had been upgraded to a room with a stunning view of the castle. It was located in my favourite area of the city, the Grassmarket and the small touches like fluffy bathrobes and jelly beans made our room feel really welcoming. I would undoubtedly recommend this hotel.

Spotless bedrooms. Exceptionally comfy beds, luxurious duvets and pillows. Good location for the festival. We were upgraded to a double double superior. Excellent cheap cocktails in the bar. Free Wi Fi and well positioned plug sockets in bar/lobby area so good for working. Breakfast OK, if you let reception know the night before you will get a discount - not advertised. Otherwise plenty of cafes nearby. Corridors and communal areas need a hoover and the tiles need a good scrub. Service in the bar was slow. Bathroom very small for 2 people, considering huge room. Shower over bath so not to easy to get out, bath sloped and the partition door did not fully open. No fan in bathroom - or maybe it wasn't working. Ear plugs provided, as was a fan ,as the room overlooked the castle and the street noise was loud. With window shut it was quiet so no need of the ear plugs! Too busy to check out the TV - but huge TV screen provided. Slow lifts.

Located virtually "under" the Castle in the Grassmarket and only five minutes uphill walk to the Royal Mile, the Apex International Hotel is in a fantastic location. Plenty of nearby pubs for a quick dinner, and several ghost tours leave from just up the street. The room was clean and quiet (except for some skip bins being rolled around at about 5am but it didn't last very long) and had excellent wifi access. Would stay there again when in Edinburgh.

The Apex International was absolutely excellent! location perfect. our room was upgraded as we arrived earlier than planned and the superior rooms were ready we were delighted as the rooms were fantastic as were the facilities and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything about our booking was perfect and smooth an excellent service.

Good sized room - 2 double beds! Friendly staff. But £10 for ordinary continental breakfast a bit steep, after the first morning we went elsewhere.

Good hotel, should make more use of its views on Edinburgh Castle in the breakfast room. I did not appreciate that after I ordered a continental breakfast (9.50 pound, expensive in itself for what you get), I was charged 20 pounds for breakfast when checking out. The room was already paid by my company.

great location to base yourself. getting a car park spot can be difficult when busy and you can't prebook a spot. Tour bus stops outside hotel so if you buy a ticket you can hop on and off all day and then back to hotel. Good bars close to hotel.

although our stay was brief, it was very pleasant. I think the location of this hotel is the major attraction, along with very pleasant staff :)
