Booked this hotel for the location & it did not disappoint. Great for the Fringe Festival. Service was good, very clean and value for money. Buffet breakfast was also very good. Stored the luggage the next day FOC.

This hotel is right off the Royal mile. Hotel is nice, rooms were good, we were on the 6th floor. Didn't get the breakfast, lots of options close by for food. Wifi was very good. Edinburgh is a smaller city, so it's easy to get around. You can walk to all of the attractions from the hotel. Enjoyed our stay... More

Great location, right in the center of Edinburgh, ideal for walking tours and sightseeing. The building is renovated,although the room is a bit small, but it is absolutely value for money. It has also good mattress for a good, comfortable sleep. Absolutely recommend it!

We arrived late night after a long trip. Considering we had stayed in other Ibis hotels (back in Mexico) we didn’t expect that much besides a descent bed and probably have a chance to grab some soda and a bag of chips as dinner from the vending machine.

The location was great with walking access to all the Royal Mile attractions, service was adequate, and the bed was comfortable. However, the room was very small and hot. I didn't have a chance to try the breakfast or the parking.

This ibis is unlike any other ibis I've stayed at before, probably due to their relatively new decor. Maybe the place was renovated recently? The room we had was spacious and modern with a comfortable bed. Even the windows open and close smoothly. The photos with this review will speak more than I can in words. The location of the...

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.
