Apex City Hotel Oct 10, 2013
The Apex City is part of the Apex chain. In fact, and slightly confusingly, they have two hotels on the Grassmarket. The Apex International is slightly posher. The Apex City aims itself at the business market rather than the leisure market, although it would be fine for either purpose.

The staff are great, and the rooms are lovely and quite big by the standards you expect in a British City. The decoration is pleasant. Although there is no gym or sauna in the Apex City, guests can use the facilities in the larger Apex International and it is only about four doors further down the Grassmarket so this should not be a problem. The restaurant and bar are pricy, but not unusually so for a hotel, and there is a decent fixed price menu. Of course you shouldn’t have to eat in the hotel, as it is right in the centre of Edinburgh.

The location is great. The Grassmarket is in the heart of tourist Edinburgh, right under the castle, and less than five minutes from the Cowgate (cheesy clubs and student/backpacker dives), Lothian Road (more cheesy clubs, but also the wonderful Cameo cinema and the King’s and Lyceum theatres and Usher Hall) and the Royal Mile (all the tartan souvenirs that you could possible imagine). I’d recommend the nearby Bow Bar as a more local, less touristy alternative to the theme bars on the Grassmarket itself. Although the Grassmarket itself gets very noisy on weekends, the soundproofing in the hotel is good and that shouldn’t be a problem.

You also get good toiletries (Elemis) and a small bath duck.

The Apex City Hotel is located in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh, Scotland. The placing of this hotel could not be any better as there are many shops, restraunts and bars within a short walk. You are also only a few blocks from the Royal Mile and are in the shadow of the great Edinburgh Castle. The price was a tad high but well worth it. The rooms were very clean and contained high quality furniture and linens as well as wireless internet. The hotel restaraunt was exceptional though a bit overpriced. Overall I was very pleased with my stay at this facility and would stay there again.
