"Stunning views of the castle" -- The AA Hotel Guide
Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
An ideal location in the lively district of Grassmarket, an on-site swimming pool and stunning views of Edinburgh Castle make the 4-star Apex International Hotel stand out from many of the other properties in the city.
You'll be staying a short walk from the Royal Mile, and Waverley Station and the Princes Street tram stop are also nearby. Grassmarket is popular with after-hours merriment with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from.
Alternatively, you can eat at the hotel's Tony Singh restaurant -- on the fifth floor overlooking the castle -- which serves a menu of international dishes. A full Scottish breakfast (complete with black pudding and haggis) is served each morning.
Some of the bedrooms are a little on the small side but the beds are comfortable. There are tea- and coffee-making facilities in every room, complimentary bottled water, Wi-Fi and an Apex rubber duck to take home. It is worth spending the extra to upgrade to a room with a castle view, or a Deluxe Double Room with a balcony and more of that view.
Rarely for a city-centre property, the hotel has its own on-site heated swimming pool. Lockers are provided and there is also a small gym and a sauna.
