To bed but not to sleep

Great location in old town close castle and heart of the royal mile. hotel itself decent decor and tidy. big problem is noise - bars opposite until early hours and then drunken guests from various stag and hen parties roaming the corridors. don't stay here at the weekend if you're a couple or family and actually want to sleep at all!

Weekend in edinburgh

The location is great but our room was not the best. on the second floor overlooking the carpark and terrace so was very noisy. the extractor fan was not brilliant in the bathroom and the plumbing needs some work. there are loads of stairs to get into the hotel so not great unless you have help with luggage, kids etc. staff are friendly and efficient. had a really good breakfast with great views of the castle. probably would have been better tohave bee higher up in the hotel.

This is a great hotel to stay in for exploring edinburgh. very central within easy walking distance of the castle, princess street and other sites of interest. we stayed at a busy time and apart from the main bar being very busy we had no issues at all with the hotel

Full to overflowing

A great stay. clean room, comfortable beds, good shower but the drain didn't work too well so the shower tray filled up and spilled out onto the floor.
good breakfast in a restaurant with a spectacular view.
highly recommended.

Apex international edinburgh

Hotel is situated in the middle of the city - not too noisy with excellent access to bars shows etc. downside to our stay was a wedding was held there over the two nights which took priority over the remaining guests. the main bar was closed on saturday night to non wedding guests, which left a small bar with very little choice - not vey impressed
