Stayed a single night recently and enjoyed it very much. 20 meters off the Royal Mile right near the City Council chambers and Mary Kings Close. Dean was excellent at the front reception and very professional and courteous. Clean, modern, comfortable rooms and a good price. Good for overnight or a couple of nights stay for couples or singles. Didn't... More

The lingering impression I have of this hotel is that they are trying far too hard to look chic and modern in a city with such noted history. The entire hotel seems likes it is trying to be something it is not. Staff were always helpful and I have no complaints there, Breakfast was good. Of course, the location could... More

Dear DarthBeerz, I am sorry to hear our product did not meet your expectations and that our modern “ibis vibe” was not up to your anticipation. Thanks for sharing your feedback. Our location is indeed ideal as we are within a short walking distance of all the main attractions of Edinburgh. The team will be more than happy to know... More

Compared with ibis Edinburgh Centre South Bridge, which is another branch 100m away from this branch, the room facilities are old and bit small. Breakfast is at same price but less variety of menu. But location is better. The bathroom is better than the plastic unit bath in South Bridge (both have no bath tab but good shower). I enjoyed... More

Had a three night break,in this hotel earlier this year. Check in was quick and efficient, by pleasant reception staff. Room 120, was small but adequate for two people. The bed was large and very comfortable, no problems in sleeping. The large window looked out over Hunter Square, thought it would be noisy, but the secondary double glazing was very... More

Checking in here the staff were super friendly and made sure we were well oriented in the city (We had just arrived in Edinburgh). The room was comfortable and spacious, with a great Ibis bed. The location is great if you want to see sights in the city. It's basically right on the Royal Mile, and it's just a short... More

Stayed at the Ibis for my anniversary celebration in Edinburgh. Honestly i cannot fault the hotel they were so friendly and efficient. They went out their way to make our special few days even better. We will most definitely be returning in the summer. The location is perfect.

Stayed for a few days to visit Edinburgh and the area. Close to Waverly station and right off of the Royal Mile. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spartan. No drawers to put your clothes in and a little closet type thing to hang your shirts and coats. No wash cloths provided so bring your own.... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
