You always know what to expect with an Ibis, and this one doesn't disappoint. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location for exploring on foot, as well as a short walk from the train station. Various places to shop and eat in the immediate vicinity, as well as a Starbucks practically right outside the door.

I really enjoyed this hotel. Perfect location on the Royal Mile. We were on the 6th floor, so no street noise. Rooms were small but comfortable. Breakfast wasn't included and seemed a little pricey, but there are tons of options near the hotel.

This is an Ibis hotel which follows the Ibis business model~ you like it, or you don't. The rooms have a little more character than the base Ibis room which is nice. While this hotel is just a few metres off the Royal Mile there is a big price to be paid, and I'm not talking about the (not inconsiderable)... More

Great location to Royal Mile. Rooms are small and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is at a competitive price compared to other nearby establishments. The only issue we had was with inconsiderate pers in the next room who made noise late when arriving from the bars.

An excellent location, easy walking to the castle, Holyrood and the National Gallery.

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.
