With a rich history, this landmark building at the east end of Princes Street in Edinburgh has returned to hotel trading after 120 years. The Waterloo Hotel was the first purpose-built large scale hotel in Edinburgh, advertised in 1819 as "an establishment where strangers could see the manners of the people and mix with the society of the place". Apex Waterloo Place combines the traditional features of this historic building with the contemporary style that Apex Hotels have become well known for.
Ideally located moments from Waverley train station and the main shopping districts, the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel is a luxury property that sets the standard for the ultimate in city chic.
‘Urban glamour meets contemporary comfort’ is very much the philosophy behind Apex Waterloo Place. This luxurious four-star boutique hotel boasts the facilities and attention to detail to rival those of a five star property.
Whether travelling for business or leisure, the 42” LCD TVs, air conditioning, Wi-Fi internet access plus broadband modem points along with 24-hour room service guarantee a pleasurable stay. For that final added luxury, our deluxe rooms and suites include BOSE surround sound speaker systems.
