I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and was very satisfied. The hotel is close to the tram stop from the airport and a walking distance to the main sights. The staff booked a taxi to the airport early in the morning (3:15am).

Yes the hotel is looking a little tired around the edges, but it is perfectly adequate for a business trip in Edinburgh given the location and the proximity of the tram station. Visiting on a fairly regular basis, the reception team remember my name, something some of the bigger hotels are likely to do. Beds are comfortable, bathrooms adequate and...

The location of this hotel is excellent, literally 5 minute walk for Haymarket station with a Tesco very close by The room we had was very small with a very small window. There was no air con in the room and only a small vent in the window so no air movement in the room at all. To make it...

I am now a regular user of Apex Hotels (Glasgow & Edinburgh) - Apex make me feel welcome and I book directly with them. The Apex in Haymarket is a stones-throw from Haymarket station - simply come out the station and cross the road - a short walk along to the Apex. Swift easy check in with friendly Receptionists. Beautiful...

We stayed at the Apex Hotel in Edinburghs Haymarket. We found this hotel exceptionally well placed for bus and tram services into Edinburgh and not an excessive distance if you wished to walk. The staff were very competent and efficient and our room was reasonable for space, bed quality and was well appointed. The only criticism I can offer was...

As a business traveller the Apex Haymarket is perfect for my needs. The rooms are always very clean and the staff is very friendly. Check-in and check-out are quick and painless. The bar and lounge area are adequate as well.

I travel to Edinburgh on business on a regular basis ...sometimes this requires an overnight stay. The rooms are well presented and very comfortable. Getting your breakfast served is rare these days....the selection is excellent and staff helpful and pleasant. I don't go anywhere else unless hotel is fully occupied.

The Apex is very handily located just a couple of minutes' walk from Haymarket Station and tram stop. It isn't immediately obvious where the entrance to the hotel is if approaching from the station.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
