My wife and I spent 4 nights here recently. Hotel is in a great location close to all major sights and shopping areas. We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night from the fixed price menu and while the selection was limited, the quality was very good and offered good value. We were in room 817 which was...

The Apex Waterloo is everything I want from a hotel. Comfortable bedrooms, excellent service, clean and great breakfast. It's in a perfect location for walking to most of Edinburgh's central attractions and minutes from the station or excellent range of buses that take you anywhere else you want to go. A minor but great plus is that the lifts are...

The unevenness of our experience is why I've given three stars. The lack of attention to the facilities in the rooms lets them down. Our room was L shaped with a narrow corridor opening out into a larger sleeping area. The corridor was very warm but the sleeping area freezing. The milk was kept in a cupboard with the minibar...

Thanks for the review David B. I am sorry to hear of the problems encountered, particularly with heating the room. We can provide additional electric heaters but I appreciate that these are not to everyone's liking and that heating within the room should be sufficient, even on the coldest of Scottish days. Thanks for the positive mentions regarding the team...

The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. They festooned our daughter's room with balloons & banners whilst we were out for the day and made a birthday cake and bought it to our table in the restaurant singing Happy Birthday. The rooms were clean, comfortable and made for an ideal base for our holiday. The hotel is ideally situated...

We were very excited about staying here as the reviews were all excellent and we were just a bit disappointed by what we experienced. We booked a deal that included a free upgrade but only received this on our second night after complaining about our dark initial room with tiny window, view of an office block a few feet away...

The staff were excellent. Linda, the concierge, was wonderful and helpful and extremely professional. Loved staying at the hotel. The food and atmosphere were excellent. The best one on our three week trip throughout Europe.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
