Stayed last month with my family and the experience was great! Staff made us feel so warm and welcomed. Location of the hotel was amazing. The Restaurant staff was very friendly and the food was good! Would recommend and would stay again.

Very helpfull staff, clean, tidy, easily reached by foot from station. Only issue was if you're not on the Hunter Square (front) of the building, and end up on the 'alley' at the rear, you might hear some drunk revelers walking down to the bars in the Cowgate/Grassmarket . Great spot though, If you fancy a breakfast out - I'd... More

The hotel is superbly situated in the heart of the old city, and it took me 5 minutes to walk to the Waverley train station, and almost the same time to get up the hill to the castle! The room was really big, comfortable, and the bed was amazing. I loved how they decorated the room, and the fact that... More

We stayed at the Ibis Hunter Square, Edinburgh for two nights as my husband had work in Scotland. Not the first time we have stayed in this hotel, it would always be our first choice. The rooms are clean and well-equipped and the location is excellent, surrounded by shops, bars, restaurants and local attractions. We ate very well in Edinburgh!... More

The hotel is in a great location for the city, all staff encountered were nice, and the room was clean. This is a basic hotel, and as such you don't expect much but you do expect that the basics are done well especially in a chain hotel. We were in an internal room - window to an undercover atrium which... More

Not too expensive, central, clean and fairly modern, helpful staff. It's a good choice, even though we did miss the personality of hotels we found elsewhere in the Highland and islands of Scotland. The central location makes for easy access to countless bars and restaurants. Some just ten meters away.

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.
