The hotel is popular with both business and leisure travellers as its' central location places it within easy walking distances of the main business, shopping and tourist areas.
Cons: Got bait and switched. Upon checkin was told that breakfast was included with the prepaid reservation. Great! Upon checkout was informed I owed something like £60 for breakfast. Tried to argue my case but had a train to catch and ended up with a "discount" to £40. Extremely shady. Will let my CC company take care of this.
Cons: There was no air conditioner in the room. The room I got was in the basement close to a very noisy load and unload area. Eventhough they had better rooms available, they asked me for extra payment in case I wanted a different room.

Pros: Location is great.
Cons: Asked the staff to have a taxi waiting for me to go to the airport at 1500. The staff lied saying 'they had ordered it please sit and wait'. They nevered called and at 1530 I had to get a manager to call. The cab showed 2 min later. Almost missed flight.
Although our room was small it was compact and well-lit. The design anticipates a guest's needs. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The staff was informative, friendly, and professional. The restaurant offers an excellent breakfast although at night the noise made conversation quite difficult. Advice for travelers to Edinburgh, especially if you are there on a weekend: dinner reservations: you'll need them if you want to eat. The Grassmarket, where the Apex is located, is thick with people. Wear sensible shoes.
Pros: I liked the centralized location for restaurants and the highlights of Edinburgh I wanted to visit. I also liked the cookies. It was clean, modern, and convenient and the staff was friendly and efficient.
Cons: This is a grievance not so much about the hotel but the location. It was a schlepp from the nearest bus station and another schlepp to the train station where we departed. Advice to others: get a taxi, there isn't a shuttle.

Pros: This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Fraser Suites. I love the location right off the Royal Mile and right above Princes Street. Easy access to everything.
Cons: The bed was a bit firm and aggravated my sciatica. And the tub was higher than normal or I am short!!!
Pros: My wife and I got married in Edinburgh, and we stayed at the Fraser Suites. It's in an excellent location, just a few steps from the Royal Mile and a 10 minute walk from Waverly railway station. We had flowers delivered to the hotel while we took the train up from London; we called in advance the night before and the staff had no difficulties with dealing with the flowers; they were waiting in our room when we arrived. We booked a junior suite, which was nice; it has a living room with a little wet bar, and a bedroom with en suite. The room had tall ceilings, nice finishes in the bathroom, huge windows to let in lots of light; we really had the impression of being at a top-end hotel. Staff were professional and friendly. No hitches in checking in or out or with housekeeping. We wish we could have stayed longer!
Cons: As nice a time as we had at this hotel, we did have two minor complaints: once, there was some mould in the tile grout in the tub surround and the caulk joint between the surround and the tub itself, which was a blemish on an otherwise great room. A somewhat bigger problem was that it was windy (hotel can't do anything about that, of course), and this is an older building with older windows; the windows rattled pretty badly at night, and I'm a light sleeper, so this kept me up. Had we stayed longer, I might have raised the issue with the front desk, and it might have been possible to fix the problem by just sticking a coin in the window frame, but it did spoil the experience somewhat.
Pros: The shower
Cons: Noise from the neighboring business disturbed us all night. Room was in the "daylight" basement; small and closed in. Staff was condescending.
