    Nothing else is needed when you book at this hotel. The staff at APEX Waterloo really takes care of all what you need. Central location, good food, clean rooms, what else do you need? Good weather, but unfortunately this is not under their control.More

    I was in Edinburgh for vacation along with a business meeting located at the Apex Waterloo. The entire staff is courteous, service is outstanding, and the location is excellent. Near the Waverly Street rail station for easy travels, easy walk to the Edinburgh Castle.

    Broughton & Calton
    Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
    malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
    have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
    mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
    found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
    but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
    even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
    art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
