A classic Edinburgh Castle view hotel

Creatively designed spaces & contemporary features

Apex Grassmarket Hotel is one of Edinburgh's best hotels committed to friendly, personalised service and dedication to providing the best stay for each guest. Our updated accommodations and comprehensive hotel features make family travel, corporate trips and leisure stays easy - and you're never more than minutes away from Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, or the Grassmarket's best dining and nightlife.

Rooms & Suites

Each of the 169 rooms at our Edinburgh Castle hotel features complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access, 42-inch LCD TVs and, in some cases, fifth-storey walkout balconies with Old Town views. Many of our rooms are spacious enough to easily accommodate families or groups.

Eat & Drink

Tony Singh at Apex Grassmarket offers a mash-up of fusion food using Scottish and British produce. From noon ‘til night the team will be more than happy to talk you through the proper tasty sharing menu - from Buns & Pickles and Scotch Broth Pie to Churros and sweet Sliders. Expect loads of flavour inspired by Tony’s favourite far-flung travel spots.

Meetings & Events

Plan meetings in one of six flexible function spaces - accommodating up to 200 attendees - or host a picture-perfect social event before a breathtaking Edinburgh Castle backdrop. Whether you utilise Heights or one of the hotel's contemporary meeting spaces, you'll receive assistance from our dedicated team of events and meetings specialists.


Apex Grassmarket Hotel is located directly on the Grassmarket, in the heart of Old Town's most lively section. The hotel is surrounded by bars, cafes, shops and restaurants, and Edinburgh Castle, the National Gallery, and the Royal Mile are just a short walk away.
