We Say


Can a contemporary hotel make you feel truly at home? At Apex City Hotel, the answer is an understated but emphatic "yes". These rooms really do manage to combine the best modern touches with the comfort you'd expect. In other words, they offer a very real alternative to the traditional Edinburgh hotel. So expect to find fixtures and fittings that you'd cheerfully live with every day. Or the generous space you need to sleep, relax, work and revive. This is a hotel room where you'll actually be able to spread out a little, and make yourself at home.


Expect flatscreen TV's, DVD's, superb walk-in power showers. Expect an all round better service. This really is a contemporary 4 star hotel with a difference.

City Rooms

At the Apex City Hotel, even the little extras are included; Complimentary newspaper, tea and coffee, 42" widescreen LCD TV, free wi-fi...

Superior Rooms

All the features of the city rooms plus a little more space, a desk, cosy bathrobes, a fridge and safe.


For a fantastic castle view, comfort, convenience and space – with a separate living area, partitioned off from the bedroom, and of course those little extras included with all of their other rooms.


  • Relax and exercise in style, in the stunning daylight-filled pool. Purified with ozone, you'll notice a distinct lack of bleachy whiffs - allowing you to enjoy your dip untroubled by stinging eyes.
  • Gym aficionados will know Technogymâ„¢: this famous name makes some of the best computerised cardiovascular and resistance facilities around. Add LCD TVs to while away the metres, calories or reps, and you're in for a great work-out.


    Agua Restaurant

    The AA rosette award-winning Agua Bar and Restaurant is superbly situated in the heart of the Grassmarket in the shadows of Edinburgh Castle.

    The Apex City Hotel is staking a claim as the most stylish of Edinburgh meeting places. Whatever you're planning, the contemporary interior design and sheer abundance of space is sure to make an impression. To us, a meeting isn't just about agendas and attendance lists, it's about the place. And the Apex City Hotel is quite a place - offering a historic Old Town location, on-site parking, excellent transport links and a modern style all of its own.


    At the Apex City Hotel they know how to host a great party - thanks to their dedicated events team based here in Scotland. Whether a long deserved graduation party or a very civilised retirement dinner, they'll handle your enquiry with due care to ensure you enjoy a celebration to remember.


    Many civil wedding venues in Edinburgh, Scotland appeal to your head or your heart - but rarely both. Choose an Apex Hotel and there will be no lingering doubts that you've compromised your ideals. The Apex Waterloo Place, International and City Hotels are fully approved for civil weddings and partnerships in Scotland and they have the space, facilities and eye for detail to make every wedding a memory to treasure.


    'Centrally located' doesn't quite do this hotel justice; they really are in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. And their Grassmarket location means they're incredibly easy to find.
