This hotel is in the heart of the city but tucked away in a quiet corner, enabling a good night’s sleep! The facilities are fine for a short business trip or city break and the staff went above and beyond to rectify an error in my original booking. The only downside was the quality of the breakfast which was basic with items slow to be replaced when they ran out. Despite that it still provided a good start to the day at a reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again if I were visiting Edinburgh!

The customer service at this hotel is by far the best we have ever experience! And we are experienced travelers from Orlando, Florida! Ricky, Liam and the new Spanish lady went above and beyond consistently. The breakfast choices and diverse, with fresh offers. The channel selections for room entertainment are lacking, and the coffee machine does not match the hotel excellence, however this is a phenomenal hotel, centrally located and near the bus station, beside the Edinburgh Castle!

Location location and location! Less than half of block from Royal Mile. Staff super attentive! Room clean, bed comfy, breakfast good enough. Hotel has full bar as well. I had a pleasant stay, but the most important is the convinience of the location.

Pros: extremely clean room friendly staff good location Cons: thinner bed mattress Nescafé for in room coffee thin walls The big plus for me was the cleanliness of the hotel; it really was very clean. Our room did not face the front, it was on the side of the hotel and faced rooftops, which was nice for outside noise. But, the walls were on the thinner side and we could hear our neighbors. If you are looking for just a bed to sleep in and a convenient location near High Street, it’s worth consideration.

Excellent staff- friendly and professional. My room was clean and comfortable The rooms are small. There are bigger rooms and I would suggest booking those unless you are traveling solo. The location is excellent- an easy walk to the castle, Holyrood, shopping, restaurants etc

This place is in the heart of all the main tourist attractions I would highly recommend, we didn't spend much time in the room but it was clean tidy and did the job of a good night's sleep, breakfast options were impressive with a selection of cold or hot food and many different hot & cold drinks, also dog friendly for those with fur babies. Staff were friendly and helpful also multi lingual, I would definitely stay again

Just had a 1 night stay in the Ibis and the whole experience was excellent. The room was spotless and very comfortable, breakfast was very tasty with lots of choice. Top marks to all the staff who were so friendly, helpful and courteous especially Mo and his colleague on the night shift. We would definitely reccomend this hotel and hope to return again soon.

Stayed for some down time between Christmas and New year, while catching up with a friend in Edinburgh. Hotel is in a great central location a few steps from the north bridge and Royal Mile. Making it easy to access both the old and new towns. Bed was really comfy had a great sleep amd the breakfast was first class. Staff were very friendly and helpful too. The bar was reasonably priced for an Edinburgh Hotel bar. Would stay again for convenience.
