“Great bed, super staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Decided to book a last minute trip to Edinburgh and this was the most affordable hotel we could find. Very easy to get to, we got a train to Haymarket then the tram to the Gyle Centre which is just across the road. The bed were very comfy, we were in a twin room and the beds were next to each other with a wooden divider, which worked well. Shower was super, toilet was a bit 'open' for us, we tended to use the one down the corridor with a proper door and lock! Staff were fab, really helpful and friendly. Shame about a lack of restaurant as we like to eat on site but the Frankie and Benny's across the road was very good. Would certainly stay again.

Despite being a budget hotel in name it is not in price, paid £99 for a basic room (probably due to the Fringe being on). If you can't get into the car park, the alternatives are a 20 minute walk to the nearest alternative or risk having your car clamped nearby. Breakfast area was very hot with no a/c or fresh air. Coffee machines stopped working due to full drip tray and full up with grounds.

We have just stayed at this brand new hotel and will definitely be back. The staff were really friendly and accommodating, it has perfect links to the city centre and the airport and was excellent value for money. The continental breakfast was really tasty with a great choice and really reasonably priced. This did not seem like a budget hotel and the reception area was really modern with funky furniture. This was exactly what we were looking for as it has everything we needed. Really comfortable beds, great links to the city centre (20mins) by the new trams. Close to the airport (so not needing to leave really early to avoid traffic). would definitely recommend this hotel.

When we booked to go to the tattoo we had problems trying to book an overnight stay in a hotel as everywhere was pretty much full or cost a fortune. I managed to secure a room for 3 people at the new IBIS, which was still being built when I booked the room. We stayed on Friday night, 1/8/14, and the IBIS had been open three weeks. Check in was painless after we secured a parking space. Our room was very small with a double bed and 1 "bunk bed" reached by way of a ladder. The room was clean, well lit, and had a tiny loo, and a separate shower, our room looked over to the Gyle shopping centre. We crossed a road and took the tram into the city centre which took around 10 mins, on the way back to the hotel in the evening we took the last tram from Princes Street, around 23:15, which took us across the road from the IBIS, with a five minute walk to reach the hotel. We didn't take breakfast, which I think was around £4 for coffee and a pastry, plenty of people were eating breakfast in the morning when we checked out, all in all, a pleasant enough stay, but best of all, £54.00, YES, £54.00 for three people, bargain of the year, would I go back, yes, probably, it is a cheap and cheerful, no frills hotel, well worth the money.

We arrived at the opening day! The most modern Ibis Budget we have seen. Great staff, very nice! The breakfast is complete!
The location is great: a shopping and a tram nearby! Very easy!
I really recomend!

I spent two nights in the IBIS Budget Hotel in Edinburgh Park and everything was lovely. It is very well connected with the city center: lots of buses and the tram can bring you in Princes street in 20 minutes and there's a shopping center just in front of the hotel, where you can find everything you need.
The room was nice and cozy: the furniture is modern but comfortable and colorful. The most amazing thing in the whole room? The shower! Big and spacious, with a color changing shower head that gives a sense of relax and peace. It was a pity to get out of there! The breakfast was rich and fresh, with a lot of choice and awesome quality. The staff is very friendly and efficient, always available in case of need and very helpful.
If you want to visit Edinburgh, this is the right place to stay!
