    The ultra-modern interior of the Apex City of Edinburgh Hotel, which opened in 2002, leads off the medieval cobbled streets of Grassmarket. Leather and steel armchairs are dotted around the lobby, which offers views of the castle through large windows.

    The long Agua Bar and Restaurant serves Scottish specialities such as mille feuille of Highland game casserole. Charcoal-colored banquettes line the walls, with broad dining chairs on the other side of the tables. For breakfast, guests can choose from a continental buffet or cooked Scottish breakfast. Drinks and light dishes are served in the adjoining bar area.

    Complimentary wireless Internet is available throughout the hotel. The hotel has 4 calm library spaces, with views of the castle. A selection of DVDs (surcharge) is available at reception.
