“Great dining experience”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Had supper last night in Le Monde and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff, food and ambiance great and so much nicer than I remembered from previous visits. The food was really good and good choice on menu. All the staff were very attentive and nothing too much trouble. Would highly recommend especially if you can get a booth to right at front area.

There is no denying this hotel and the rooms are stunning, the location is great for pubs and restaurants but it is hugely let down by the noise of the hotel nightclub (if you go to the nightclub you wont mind but if you want to get to sleep at a reasonable time its an issue!) luckily I stayed for work as if I had paid this price for a personal trip I would have been asking for a refund. The boom from the music was continous and just as u start to drift off a large group would come outside to smoke and wake u up screaming and shouting, this went on until about 3am when the noise got worse as everyone came out at closing time for about an hour screaming, shouting arguing... Until finally silence!

First of all, thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. I am sorry to hear we have not met your expectations on this occasion. Le Monde is a vibrant place located in the heart of George Street and as you say ideal location for some of the best bars and restaurants Edinburgh has to offer. Our late night venue is located in the basement of the building with rooms on the upper most floors to provide as much distance between the two fantastic services we are proud to offer.

Once again please accept our apology for any disturbance you had during your stay.

Kind regards

My husband and I stayed in the New York suite for his 40th birthday and our stay was faultless from beginning to end! We arrived early but staff were more than happy to keep our luggage and said they would make sure they were put into our room for when we returned. After exploring the city we returned to the hotel and found the check in quick and easy. Our luggage was indeed waiting for us on arrival to our room. Room was HUGE!, spotless and very modern. I had requsted a rose petal turndown and chocolates etc which was an amazing touch and the birthday card left from the hotel staff wishing my husband an enjoyable birthday was a lovely touch! The button controlled mood lighting is excellent and the bathroom was to die for. A huge double rainfall shower with Temple Spa toiletries and again there was mood lighting in the bathroom. The complimentary bottles of water beside the bed are again a lovely touch. There was a huge T.V which was easy to work and a DVD player and ipod docking station. We rang reception to book a table in the restaurant for dinner which the staff were more than happy to do for us. As i am a fussy eater i was more than delighted to find macaroni cheese also on the menu along with more adventurous options to please all tastes. The food was amazing, the surroundings fabulous and the staff lovely. The prices of the food were also very reasonable considering the setting. We had drinks in the cocktail bar after dinner and when i asked for a cocktail which was not on the menu this was not a problem and the barman went out of this way to make it specially for me. We had a lovely peaceful nights sleep considering you are in the middle of the city and were not disturbed at all. Check out was again quick and easy. All in all a fabulous stay which gave my husband a birhday to remember! We will definately be back in the future and recommending you to friends. It was well worth the money. Also we would dine in your restaurant again if in the city for the day. Thanks for a memorable stay!!!

I didn't stay in any of the rooms so can't comment on them. I ate here as part of a large hen party. We dined from a set menu which was priced at £30pp for 3 courses. The menu was fabulous, with a few different choices. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. Staff were friendly and attentive, but relaxed at the same time, and seemed to enjoy their jobs. My friend and I had a champagne cocktail from the upstairs bar which was great! There was another hen party dining in the same area as us, so it got rather loud, but we were seated upstairs in a separate area away from the main bar downstairs, where I can imagine it might have been quite irritating for other drinkers/diners! All in all, a great evening with lovely food in very luxurious surroundings. Would recommend to anyone looking for a high-end dining/drinking experience.

Thank you for your kind comments. Our set menus are always a hit with larger groups and so glad to hear our staff looked after you all so well. Next time you join us why not contact our events team and try one of our cocktail masterclasses where you can join in the fun of making some for yourselves. Looking forward to welcoming you all back very soon.

Stayed in the LA suite for 2 nights and loved it! Staff were very friendly. Great size of room, huge comfortable bed, 2 TVs, great lighting features, nice seating area, large dressing table & huge bath tub! Great location for getting to shops/restraunts. A bit pricey for the suite and nightmare to get parked outside hotel. Nearby car park is about 5 minutes walk away. We ordered wine & strawberries and it arrived within minutes. Only downside was the TV didnt work in the bath tub - receptionist advised this is due to be removed. Would definitely go back and stay again. Love each room resembling a different city!

Thank you for your comments on L.A. and your recent stay. So glad to hear you had such a good experience and are intending to come back in the future. Being city center parking can be a little tricky outside the hotel but as you said there are plenty large car parks within 5 minutes walk from us, best to drop your bags off first and we can get them to your room to save you walking with them.

When you are looking to return to Le Monde if you contact our lovely reception staff, they will be more than happy to assist with the best available rates.

Kind regards

Booked 2 nights over the weekend but was not impressed. We booked an executive room which was nothing special, very basic with only a standard double bed. For what we paid for the room it was very overpriced compared to other boutique hotels we've stayed. We requested a quiet room but still very noisy all night from people amalgamating outside and the crashing of glass bottles from bins emptying. Forget Breakfast, it is served in the bar, while the bar staff are clearing up and stocking up from the night before. You have to order everything from the orange juice to a slice of toast with everything individually priced. All in all, just not worth it!

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us, however I am sorry to hear you felt let down on this occasion with your visit. We take all feedback very seriously and strive to better ourselves from all comments.

All of our rooms are themed and are unique to a different city of the world so I am sorry to hear you felt it wasn't special. Being a small hotel with only 18 rooms, we have a more personal breakfast service and want to make sure you receive the freshest and best offering available. In turn, we feel our table waited service ensures you receive the best coffee and freshest food possible. Breakfast is available to add onto your room rate at a fixed price by contacting the hotel direct to avoid paying for individually priced items.

Once again I'd like to thank you for your feedback.

Kind regards

Location is amazing, right next door to hard rock cafe, lots of lovely restaurants and shop, very central. Staff were lovely, and we got upgraded to the Atlantis room. The Atlantis room is beautiful and modern with a big comfy bed.

The only downside I can say about this hotel is that the fish tank in our room above our bed was really dirty, looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months! As we have tropical fish of our own at home. And also there was a TV in our bathroom beside the bath, and when we turned it on made a really loud fuzzy noise, which scared the life out of us! we phoned reception to let them know it wasn't working and they said they haven't been working since the digital switch over, as it is quite a big job to fix them, which it may be, but if your paying a lot of money to stay here you expect things to be working.

We didnt eat in the hotel, although the menu looked nice and a reasonable price. The hotel also offer dvds to watch in your room just ask for a list at reception. We got the airline bus to princes street for £12 return for 2 adults, and its 5 mins walk to the hotel. Also if your visiting the zoo you can get the number 26 bus from princes street on the Scott monument side and it will take about 20 mins, have the correct change for the bus £1.50 for an adult one way.

Overall I would defintely stay here again, and I would recommend to others.
