Apex Waterloo Place Hotel

The Grade A listed property originally dated from 1812 and was Edinburgh’s first purpose built hotel. More recently used as offices, the building was in poor condition. ISA’s design was developed to meet the modern expectations of both business and leisure guests with feature bedrooms created to offer stunning views across the Forth Estuary. The conferencing suite, bar, restaurants and reception were all deliberately located within the most ornate spaces, whilst a new leisure pool was formed within a disused internal courtyard.
