I stayed here for a week while working in Edinburgh, and next time, I will stay in the other Ibis down the street (which I have also stayed in and it was a lot better). On checking in, everything seemed very promising, the guy working on reception was very friendly and gave me information about the hotel, my stay, and... More

I booked this property based on location and with city busy with the Edinburgh festival, there were not many options for a reasonable rate. The location is very good, if your looking for a hotel in the middle of everything, then I would recommend this property, however there were a few things which let us down. When we arrived, I...

Avoid this hotel at all costs, the staff were downright rude and abusive, the rooms are tiny and don't look like they've been decorated since the 1970's We paid on average around £200 per night for this hotel, and the hotel manager shouted abuse at my children. Carpets in the room were filthy, we had an 'extra' bed for one... More

.... to the centre of the action if you're coming for the Fringe. The rooms are small & basic (but excellent bed & shower) and the staff are delightful, charming and 110% (yes I know!!) helpful. It's not cheap, but Central Edinburgh in August, it's not unreasonable at all. In summary, if you want somewhere right on pitch to put... More

The location on the royal mile is great. Easy access to lots of sights, the Edinburgh HoHo bus, Edinburgh castle, Fringe festival goings on, etc. From our window we could even watch street performers entertaining crowds, which was pretty neat. However, it was very noisy at all hours of the night. Open windows for air circulation (it was hot and... More

The location is definitely the best thing going for this hotel, well placed just off the Royal Mile and within easy walking distance of the train station. Don't expect any frills with this hotel though, it is pretty basic, but is somewhere to get your head down for the night. We had booked in advance and did get a reasonable... More

To put my heading into context, we needed to quickly book a night in Edinburgh near the railway station. £179 seemed rather a lot for an Ibis, although city centre during the Fringe may explain why. However, the hotel itself is very well located. The staff were always excellent. The room, although functional rather than lavishly appointed, was clean, perfectly... More

Hotel is located just steps away from the Royal Mile and is very convenient! Room was small, no frills, great shower, average bed. TV sounded "tinny." The air cooling system was wonderful since we were visiting during a hotter than normal weather event for Edinburgh! When we checked in, two "trainees" were handling our check-in. They had trouble finding our... More
