    Road Directions

    The simplest way to find the hotel is to head towards Princes Street, Edinburghs main shopping street. Once at the west end of Princes Street near House of Frasers Department store turn south into Lothian Road. Once on Lothian Road make the 1st left turn into King Stable Road. Follow this road straight along and you will arrive in the Grassmarket where the Apex Grassmarket will be on the right hand side of the road.

    The Hotel does offer limited complimentary parking but this cannot be guaranteed.

    Public Transport Directions

    From the nearest information centre:- Exit the Tourist Information Centre and turn left onto Princes Street. Continue walking west until Lothian Road and turn left, then left again onto Kings Stables Road, which leads into the Grassmarket.

    Getting there by railway:- Waverley station sits below Princes Street on the opposite side of the castle from the Grassmarket. It is a 10 minute walk to the Hotel, however with the climb over a hill we would suggest catching a taxi from any of the taxi ranks within or around the station.

    Getting there by aeroplane:- There are a number of options to arrive in Edinburgh from the Airport either by taxi, by Airport Link double decked bus to the city centre or by Airport Shuttle bus which will stop at the hotel. If driving follow the A8 and signs to the city centre. Do not turn off until you reach the west end of Princes Street with the Shops on your left and the castle on your right. Here you should make a right turn into Lothian Road. Once on Lothian Road make the 1st left turn into King Stable Road. Follow this road straight along and you will arrive in the Grassmarket where the Apex Grassmarket will be on the right hand side of the road.
