Stay Within Sight of the Castle

Contemporary Hotel in the Center of Town

Just two blocks from Edinburgh Castle, the Apex City Hotel is centrally located in Edinburgh's Grassmarket, near tourist attractions and the train station. Visitors can enjoy castle views from the sitting area on each floor of the hotel.

Guests can also take advantage of facilities at the nearby Apex International Hotel. The Apex International provides additional parking and fitness facilities, including an Ozone pool.

Entertainment in the Hotel or Around Town

The hotel is in the Grassmarket district, with all the Old Town activities surrounding it. Browse the Grassmarket shops, where vendors sell traditional tartans, bric-à-brac, books, and fashion.

Four theaters are less than a mile away, and the Castle is two blocks away. It's just a 10-minute walk to the Royal Mile and a few minutes further to Princes Street. The Princes Street tram stop is close to the hotel. Edinburgh's art museums are also near the tram stop.

Princes is the main shopping street in Edinburgh. Some areas along the street give unobstructed views of Old Town and Edinburgh Castle.

For a peaceful experience, visit the Royal Botanic Garden. A Scottish Heath Garden takes its inspiration from the highlands, while the Queen Mother's Memorial Garden honors the beloved royal family member.

If you choose to stay in at night, borrow a DVD from the hotel's library, or catch up on the day's news with the free paper.

Dream About the Castle at Night

Some rooms have castle views. Bright bed linens make the rooms charming and offer cheer, even if you don’t have a view of the castle. Single, queen, and king size beds are available, and some rooms include a sofa bed for children. The master suite adds a separate sitting area, refrigerator, magazines, and snacks. 

All rooms include free WiFi, bottled water, satellite television, and an Apex duck souvenir. 

Locally Sourced Dining

At the Apex City Hotel, breakfast might be a full Scottish breakfast, or a quick continental bite. During lunch and in the evening, the hotel features seafood and local dishes, and room service is available around the clock.

There's a wide choice of pubs, wine bars, and juice bars in the Grassmarket area. Be sure to visit the pubs to try real Scottish whisky, accompanied by an evening of live entertainment.

The Bottom Line

The Apex City Hotel offers guests personalized attention in a central Edinburgh location.
