              Individual guest reviews

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                Location was excellent for us on this particular ocassion. We have stayed at Apex in Dundee and also, the other Edinburgh hotel on previous occasions. Fabulous old building with great history which has been thoroughly modernised. Room was super and all facilities easily accessible and convenient. Thank you.

                Parking not easy, obviously, and we found that the drop-off point outside the front door had been monopolised upon arrival and departure too. Perhaps a little more attention to detail could have been applied to breakfast.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                We were really pleased with all aspects of the hotel and would definately stay there again

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Close proximity to Waterloo railway station, City centre and hire car depots. Very friendly and helpful staff. Free WiFi

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                A bit clinical but comfortable. The shower went hot and cold and not very hot when heat turned to maximum. Bath was great though. Swimming ool was a lot smaller than expected.

              • Couple
                9.6

                Everything,the rooms are fantastic;the staff are so helpfull and food was lovely.Ideal hotel for a city break away.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Central Location yet quiet at night - no traffic noise Comfortable rooms and bed - plenty of space

                Bar area was very draughty - front door opened straight into bar. No fire in fireplace - it would have been cosier and more welcoming with fire as a focal point

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                We had stayed in the Apex for two weeks and loved it. The location is excellent - within 7 minutes walk from the Royal Mile and very close to the points of interest in the new town, yet located on a quiet street, away from the hustle and bustle of the town center. There is usually a parking space in front of the hotel (payment by coins or credit card) so you don't have to pay an exorbitant fee for hotel parking, as in hotels in the heart of town. The room we had stayed in (a Superior Double Room) was very spacious and comfortable, with ample storage space for a couple, quite a change from other city hotels we had stayed in, in many locations. The staff was quite helpful and friendly, most of all in the dining room. Internet (wifi) was free.

                Breakfast is a little expensive

                Staff welcoming and extremely helpful and accommodating with special request.

                My room was facing a night club so very noisy as no double glazing windows, curtains could not be drawn properly and water in the shower not very hot. For the rate of the room for one night of £90 excl breakfast and out of season I did not expect to encounter the above.

                Found the hotel to be comfortable and quiet. The staff were accommodating and pleasant. The receptionists were very helpful and friendly. The service in the bar and dining room was very good. I felt secure in my room which is good as a lone guest.

                The only thing I did not like about the hotel was the situation of my room which had a high small window and I was unable to see out.

                I thought the food was excellent, and the staff very knowledgeable and well prepared. The amenities in the hotel were very good also (bar, business centre) and the location is great.

                There are no toilets (or at least I didn't see any) in the spa changing rooms.
