Crisp sheets, comfortable bed, clean quiet room - all so perfect after a long day of travelling.
The next day, feeling restored and happy from a wonderful sleep, we discovered the breakfast buffet at the Apex Waterloo, and then began to explore Edinburgh. The location of the Apex is terrific. With the friendly help of the hotel concierge, we mapped out our day and found we could walk almost everywhere. Although we passed many tempting spots , we always enjoyed returning to the Apex's lounge for a pre dinner drink. With it's comfortable couches and chairs, big windows, and a friendly hum, it's such a nice spot to chat over the adventures of the day.
We stayed in 3 hotels in Scotland during this trip and the Apex Waterloo is our clear favorite.
The hotel is across the bridge from the Edinburgh's old town which give you great view of the city. It is right next to the main train station and GBP 20 taxi ride from the Edinburgh's airport. From the hotel you can pretty much walk to the main attractions.
The hotel was beautiful with nice pool/fitness center. It has really nice bar to tastes whisky and restaurant (Number One) was excellent.
Room (we stayed in cheapest room) was large, clean and comfortable. Bathroom was also large with extra mirror for my wife to do makeup, etc.
Location perfect, central but quiet; staff perfect, friendly, efficient, patient; room almost perfect, large enough but would have been great if slightly bigger; cleanliness perfect, spot-on in every respect; bed almost perfect, again slightly larger for a double room would have been better but nothing to complain about; good excellent, breakfast superb, early bird budget dinner in the restaurant also excellent. Thank you so much, you'll be our first choice when we return!
First experience of this hotel chain. Brand new hotel in prime location close to bus and train stations. We were on a theatre trip so ideally located for the Playhouse.
Staff exceptionally helpful even wheni discovered I had a made an error while booking. They couldn't have been more pleasant and efficient.
Check in and out easy and quick and was able to leave luggage for a few hours.

Hotel Indigo is an excellent hotel overall. The staff are very helpful. The location is great as pretty much all the best stuff in Edinburgh is within 10 minute walk, else buses and trams stop straight outside. The rooms are modern and airy with plenty space, great bed and shower. Complimentary mini bar is a bonus you don't usually see. Breakfast is excellent with both continental and Scottish options. Nice bar, could maybe do with more draft options, but staff were always attentive. Would certainly use again!

We liked our first three nights at the Royal British Hotel that we returned there two weeks later for the end of our stay! The hotel is directly across from Waverly train station, the tram and bus routes. It is a quick walk to the Royal Mile. Although the hotel itself shows it's age, our small room had been updated and had everything we needed. One real plus was the entire staff! All were kind, helpful and friendly. We will stay here again on our next visit!
We requested a room with a view and were not disappointed. Even though we couldn't check in early everything else about The Place including being right at the end of the Tram line from the airport was just perfect. We appreciated the Staff, the Rooms and the Location.
