Reviewed 11 May 2017 via mobile

This hotel was really great, if I'm ever in Edinburgh again I will definitely stay here. When travelling for work room service is normally what I go for and it was so so good, broccoli soup for starter and flat iron steak for my main. My room was on the top floor and I had an amazing view of the castle. Break was also great, they had all sorts of options and I went for the superfood breakfast which also came with gluten free bread so I'm pleased that they try and cater for for all as much as possible. Very cool hotel and would be great for a weekend trip to Edinburgh.

Stayed: January 2017, travelled on business

A well appointed hotel in a great location. It can be a bit noisy from the square opposite but we weren't there on the weekend so it wasn't a problem for us. The restaurant staff seemed oddly inexperienced but were helpful and the service was good. Overall, service was good, For example, our mini-fridge wasn't working when we arrived and it was replaced promptly. We would go back.

The staff was unfriendly and unhelpful for our entire stay. The room was very plain. The bathroom was tiny. In order to sit on the toilet you had to have one leg against a wall and block the door from opening. The bathtub was new but hard to stand in for a shower and getting in and out of it was dangerous. There was no grab bar. There was only room for one set of towels in the bathroom. There was no safe or fridge in the room. The windows opened above the outdoor smoking area so they had to stay closed to keep cigarette smoke out. We paid over $230 per night for this very marginal hotel.

Enjoyed walking across street to restaurants...avoid Mama's Pizza (ugh) and go to Howies and Ballantrae for dinner and breakfast. Great little Fossil store nearby. There are two Apex hotels on the same block. We stayed at Apex Grassmarket. Friendly and helpful staff, provided extra water and tissues on request.
