  • Is your hotel more near the Edinburgh castle compared to your sister company Apex grassmarket hotel?

    Hi, We are only 100 meters apart, so it's a bit of a tricky question! Our sister hotel has better views of Castle Rock and the Castle itself, but we are closer to the street that will lead you to the Royal Mile, and therefore, to the Castle.
