“Fantastic hotel lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

The hotel has great rooms which appear non uniform and therefore have more character. The services are excellent great touch in the mini bar by having fresh milk. Drinks in the small bar were reasonably priced. We will definitely return.

Stayed in a room at the rear of the hotel (301) which, whilst it had no view at all, also meant it was away from any potential noise on York Place.

Usual Indigo style and, as always, an immaculately clean room and comfy bed. Wifi worked well.

Breakfast was better than last time, though still waiting for the brown sauce I asked for on day 1!! Some staff were also very friendly/professional and some less so. Parking really must be booked in advance (£12 a night) and be warned it is a bit of a nightmare stopping outside to collect a key fob for access to the parking (which is located away from the hotel); if you were a solo traveller I am not sure how you would do it. Would suggest the hotel look for a better system.

But these (apart from the parking) are small points; it is an excellent hotel in an decent spot (behind the St James shopping centre).

Hope to stay again.

We stayed for 2 nights & were pleasantly surprised at the space of the room and en-suite. We have certainly experienced far less room in our various travels. The staff were very attentive. There is a bus stop and tram service at the front of the hotel and Edinburgh's main bus station is nearby in

I only stayed one night on this trip, but my experience with Hotel Indigo was thoroughly positive. It had all the key features I rate in a hotel (quiet room, clean, good Air-Conditioning and good shower) but also had some nice extras which made the overall stay all the more pleasant, not necessarily but things that stood out to me over other hotels.

The two I particularly noticed were the free wi-fi which worked well and was easy to access and the complimentary mini-bar with snacks and soft drinks. Both of these made a difference to my stay in a positive way.

The staff were polite and helpful and the location is excellent just over the hill from Waverley station and the old town.

Indigo hotels are my favourite brand at the moment. They are consistently high quality and also decorated sympathetically with the locality. This one is Edinburgh; local authors and theatre. Lovely rooms. Great beds. Complimentary mini bar of soft drinks and chocolate. WiFi is swisscom which is always good quality. Remember to ask for many slips of you have multiple devices. Great breakfast but don't be even a minute late or you will just get toast. Recommended.

We stayed in the only room in this hotel featuring two queen size beds. The room was enormous and our stay quite comfortable. Walking the streets of Edinburgh is a little difficult because of the hills but even if you can't walk to the train, it is a very short cab ride. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and got us started on a busy day. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in this hotel to watch the Edinburgh tattoo, hotel room was clean and new, hotel was a quaint maze of corridors on 1st level, breakfast was very good, ordered not buffet unless you wanted continental, easily within walking distance to Edinburgh Waverley train station and shopping areas, about a 8 min walk to station entrance. Hotel bar was small but served a good range of drinks, would definitely recommend this.

Room Tip: Try and stay on floors above ground level or first floor
