Positioning of the hotel including ease of access to station, shopping centres and attractions
My mom and I were pleasantly surprised with the Apex Waterloo. The location was central and convenient. The staff was great. The hotel bar and restaurant had good food and even a bit of a cool scene.. The breakfast was very good, you can have both the continental and a la carte for GBP10 (if you book a day in advance). We had it for a couple of days, but then bought some yogurt and got coffee and a croissant from the cafe next door. We have nothing bad to say about this hotel. Will stay again on next trip to beautiful Edinburgh.
There's nothing not to like! This is a four star hotel, and it has surpassed my expectations.
Great location with friendly and helpful reception staff.
Very central location
Room was nice and bed very comfortable. Staff were very helpful especially Linda on the front counter
No on site parking costs 17GBP/day would recommend visitors to check this before booking [ Edinburgh not easy to drive around]. Breakfast too expensive
room decor complimentary coffee/tea/cookies in room location Linda, the amazing concierge
misrepresented by booking.com, not all rooms have bathtub some of the reception staff were unfriendly
We liked everything from super meals to lovely room and would stay again and recommend it to friends
The barman with the beard was scruffy and not as welcoming as all the other staff hence we had a night cap elsewhere
Excellent evening meal. Excellent location, especially for train travellers. Bright and cheerful reception.
Did not enjoy smokers' smoke in both the reception area and even in the bar, especially when we were eating! Some better arrangement needed here. Also the lift area was almost in darkness; why?
Fab amenities,excellent location
Bar prices a bit steep
Location Value for money Quality Comfortable
Fabulous location. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great stay.
From the moment we arrived the staff were warm and welcoming. The room was such a high standard with outstanding cleanliness. The breakfast was fantastic and the staff couldn't do enough to make sure we enjoyed our stay. I would definitely visit again.
The bathroom and shower were great.The staff all very efficient and friendly. The food was delicous.
The room was small and very basic. No personality to it at all, could have done with a complete update. It you compare it to a Travel Lodge or a Premier Inn there rooms are a lot nicer.
The hotel was beautiful with spacious room and spa like bathroom. Location was fantastic for getting to train immediately, tour service across the street and right down town.
The dining room was lovely but the food was presented beautifully but very bland and not varied.
Bed very comfortable. Staff very friendly. Good bar with friendly staff.
Slow service at meal times
The staff were polite and willing to serve. Our location was of prim importance and we were very happy with our choice.
The dinning room was too bland with too many square edges. Not enough softness in the style.
The Apex Waterloo Palace Hotel was perfectly situated within the city centre in walking distance of all the attractions. Our room was excellent especially the walk in shower. We made use of the swimming pool and practically had it to ourselves.
The room was quite warm.
Location and bar staff
Desk staff was not very helpful; parking was a problem- very difficult
All ok except for food.
Ordered food in the bar, wasn't busy but took half an hour. When it came it was the very worst food my wife and I have had on our travels. Complaint to Restuarant Manager, who told me t'that's the sort of thing you get at a City hotel' On this basis, I will not be staying at Apex again. My wife's food was cold rice and slop. Mine was A potato sliced in half,a tomato sliced in half and 3 cubed pieces of belly of pork. Really !
We liked the central location, very easy to get to & from the airport. The breakfast was great & the beds very comfortable.
We thought it was a little overpriced.
We loved this hotel, the staff were brilliant; helpful & great attitude. The beds were really comfortable, best sleep on our holiday. Highly recommended.
Nothing that we did not like!
Close to the railway station and many tourist attractions
Stayed in Apex for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we were extremely happy with the size and quality of the room. Would definitely choose to stay here again when visiting Edinburgh.
