“Excellent location, reasonable price”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Hotel is about a 3 minute walk from Old Town 'Royal Mile' and less than 10 minutes to Princes Street in New Town. I never used Edinburgh's public transit, as I could walk to everywhere I wanted to go easily. Rooms are clean and the hotel is new. This is my 4th Ibis stay and all have been great. A nice compromise for those who want a decent hotel (no hostels or shared baths) but don't want to spend a fortune.

It is a band new hotel in very close location to old town. You can reach the hotel from main rail station and airlink bust stop by walking if you accept to steps or ramp. The cleanness of the hotel is quite good and you'll find the ibis standard if you stayed before. When you compare price/service rate, it is a nice choose in Edinburg. There is free wi-fi but speed is quite weak, you have to pay for fast internet if you need. There is market at the next door and lots of restaurants/cafes closely this is why I didn't try their food service.

Hotel is very central and near the train station. Room was very modern and basic, but clean. Bed was very comfy. Bathroom small, but shower lovely. Not much space to put your clothes. There was a bin in the bathroom, but not the room itself, which is not ideal. The menu of the restaurant was limited so ate out every night. Wooden flooring meant the room wasn't very warm. There was a thermostat on the wall, but no instructions on how to change the settings. Liked the idea of using the room card to operate the lift and open the stair doors. It made you feel a bit more secure.

Room Tip: Despte the fact there is a lift, it is quite a walk to the room.

First off this is a brand spanking new hotel in a good central location. Our room was extremely small & the decor minimalistic. The bathroom although providing most of the basics was very small & pod like. We are regular visitors to Edinburgh so know rooms particularly at the weekend come at a premium. I do feel there are better value accommodations available in the city. We paid £120 for room only with breakfast costing another £7.95 each. On our last visit we stayed at the nearby Old City Chambers for the same price and this provided us with a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment which was easily 6 times the size of our room here. Another issue was showering before going out Saturday night I discovered the shower dispenser was totally empty as was the soap dispenser at the sink. I have stopped taking my own as this is always provided even in the most basic of accommodations. I was going to report this on way out but there was a massive queue at reception so just bought some when I was out. Breakfast was fine but the waitress seemed more concerned that we hadn't paid for it than offering any kind of greeting. I had asked at reception if I could pay on departure and they told me no problem. If this accomodation was perhaps half the price & housekeeping more thorough then only then would I consider staying here again. Just don't feel it offered good value for money.

Dear Annie,

Thank you for your review! I am sorry to hear you did not find our brand new product a good value for money, which I am grateful for your feedbacks. As a new business in the heart of Edinburgh we do value our customers opinion very highly in order to improve on both our service and product. I can ensure you I have already reported the lack of soap in your room to our head of housekeeping, and my Food & Beverage manager will re-inforce our customer welcoming training with his Breakfast team. Although weekends do get busy in Edinburgh, we always try to offer a competitive price for our accomodation based on location and other properties value. We hope to seeing you back to the hotel so you can experience a hassle-free stay with us. Thank you again.

Hotel is ok location. Rooms are clean but very very basic. Bathroom was far to small and not ideal when getting ready for a night out. Having to sit on the floor to do my makeup and hair is not ideal. Only down fall I felt was the bathroom and the parking. Its a bit of a walk and again not idea when u have a suitcase :(

The ibis south bridge in Edinburgh is a great hotel. We arrived very early on the Friday morning had been travelling all night and just went to the hotel on the off chance we could check in and they had rooms for us. They were new modern and the beds were so comfy. Slept so so well both nights. Staff were sp friendly and ordered us taxis and gave us directions. We were room only but the first morning we arrived we went down and had breakfast such a great choice and again the staff were great.
Its so convenient to princes Street the main one in Edinburgh and the castle is so so close. Taxis are very cheap aswell.
Great stay and would defo go back.
