About Edinburgh

What to Do in Edinburgh

Time Out
This 1996 debut venture from Apex was refurbished and extended just a couple of years later; more than a decade on, it remains a slick, contemporary venue in a brilliant location.
The 169-room, upscale Apex International Hotel is an urban contemporary hotel, ideally located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, with spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle.
