Apex Waterloo Place Hotel: The refurb

Out with the old and in with the new – to celebrate its 200th anniversary, we’ve shown Apex Waterloo Place Hotel some serious love by giving it a fresh new refurbishment.

Built in 1819, the charming character of the building lives on but the modern refits reflect the needs of the modern traveller.

From the stunning Duplex Suite to the cosy and convenient City Rooms, check out our latest make-over and be inspired for your next stay in Edinburgh.
