The 3-star Apex Haymarket Hotel sits to the west of Edinburgh's city centre and is a good choice for leisure and business travellers, with friendly staff and good connections to the city and airport.
The bus stop right outside the hotel and takes guests to Princes Street in the city centre in five minutes (costing £1.50 each way), or it is a pleasant 15-minute walk. The zoo is 10 minutes in the other direction.
The 66 rooms are a good size (although small doubles are, unsurprisingly, on the small side), and come with complimentary still and sparkling water, free fast Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. There is a walk-in double shower in the bathrooms and a complimentary Apex rubber duck to take home.
There's a good choice served at breakfast with hot items cooked to order, and the Metro West End Bar & Restaurant serves traditional British fare throughout the rest of the day. There is a very reasonable set-menu option, and other restaurants nearby to try.
