A very handy location.10 minutes walk to Waverley railway and bus stations. Very close to pubs and restaurants. Well managed by young, keen and friendly staff. Nice modern and bright decor with the usual iBis comfort beds! Well done !

Hotel is perfect location to explore Edinburgh and all its delights. Hotel was perfect; staff polite, friendly and made my 4 year old daughter really welcome. Rooms and hotel were very clean. Lovely bar area with board games to keep all ages entertained



central to Edinburgh city centre. Clean, you had tea/coffee/biscuits everyday in room. comfortable bed although you could hear noisy neighbours in the hallway at early hours every morning. They should do a cheaper rate for breakfast, so i went without it.



We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is at the heart of the old city, right on the Royal Mile. The facilities were modern, the room very clean, and the breakfast amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful.



I was only in town for one night, to see friends, but found the Ibis excellent value, as well as being neat and clean, and staffed by friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely be returning for a longer stay in the future.



Brilliant stay at ibis hunters square Edinburgh. Friendly staff, had z good night's sleep, rooms warm, with tv and drink making facilities, biscuits refreshed every morning, a lovely touch along with decaf coffee sachets. Buffett style breakfast and pizza , hot chocolate and drinks available to purchase from the bar. A brilliant location to explore Edinburgh centre, and a short walk from the train station and air Port bus stop, making it a very stress free visit to a beautiful city.

The staff were friendly and helpful but the hotel looked and felt more like a youth hostel than a hotel. The restaurant only served pizza and snacks, so if you want a decent meal you have to go out for it. The beds and pillows were very hard, apparently by design but the room was clean and a reasonable size.We were given a cash reward for opting to have our rooms left unservised, which could be redeemed the bar or restaurant. It was in a great position just off the Royal Mile near the castle and overall not too bad. If your looking for a real "hotel" experience however, in my opinion, this is not it.



Great location for your stay. This was convenient to the old town and the central area and museum. Basic rooms but comfortable and great friendly staff. Close to several day tours meeting points so very good as a base to explore. Good choice for one or more travelers.

Lovely hotel in a great location right in the centre of the old town. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a great selection of facilities available 24 hours a day. The rims were lovely however unfortunately we had an internally facing one which was very hot, but we have been since told this is an issue they are currently resolving.

We would not stay in this hotel again because you cannot control the room temperature. Our room 305 was far too hot. The window opens a couple of inches onto an enclosed area, thus very little air gets through and once you close the blackout curtains there is no air flow. We were given a fan but it made little difference. It doesn't matter how good the bed is, if it's too hot you won't sleep. The temperature system this hotel uses is not fit for purpose. In addition the rooms are far too small.



Check in was quick, efficient and friendly. We had a quiet room up on the 6th floor, and it had a bath instead of shower, which we'd requested. The room was a little on the small size, but fine. There were insufficient towels - a bath towel each, but nothing to dry your hands with. Even budget Travelodges give you a hand towel. The room was on the cold side, which would not have mattered if there had been warm bedding. Instead, there was a thin summer-weight duvet with no blanket and no bedspread - inadequate in the middle of a Scottish winter! The bed was comfortable and would have been ideal, had we been warmer. Our room was supplied with a good hairdryer, and there is a socket located in an ideal position, directly under a full-length mirror. I really appreciated it when getting ready for going out. We opted for breakfast. This is cafeteria style and very much self-serve. Travellers hoping for a full Scottish breakfast should be warned that the hot items are limited to greasy streaky bacon, over-processed sausage, cheap tasting baked beans and scrambled eggs. Despite being in chafing dishes, the scrambled egg and beans were stone cold. We caught the attention of a member of staff who popped in and out of the kitchen periodically, who was helpful and quickly got us hot ones. There's also a nice bain-marie for boiling your own eggs, and a coffee machine but no decaf option apart from powdered sachets. Overall, the breakfast is quite expensive for what you get, and there are very good alternatives in café-bars such as Biblos within easy walking distance. The hotel is well-located and a good base for exploring the city, and the shortcomings we found could be easily remedied, if the hotel management were so minded.



Really happy with everything, hotel staff very helpful and pleasant, rooms clean and tidy, location of hotel perfect. I will always use ibis hotels from now on, everything was perfect, great value for money. Early check in and late check out was brilliant too, cannot fault anything.

Comfortable bed, nice powerful shower and pillows that act like pillows!, good breakfast options and walking distance for all of the main Edinburgh attractions, highly recommended (staff were super friendly too :-) )



The Hotel was ideally located for heading up the Royal Mile to the castle and a number of other activities. A slightly further walk in down the mile gets you to Hollyrood Palace which also works really well.



Perfect location, right in the old town; delicious breakfast; personnel very helpful and friendly; comfortable, silent and clean room. I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to visit Edinburgh. Bravo!



We stayed at this hotel for our wedding anniversary. We had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is located very centrally and is a short walk from the train station and most of the tourist attractions. We were greeted with a warm welcome and when we got to our room we found two small botttles of prosecco as a surprise for our anniversary. We have stayed at much more expensive hotels and not received this. Was very impressed.



The hotel is closer to the action in Edinburgh than the other Ibis just down the road. It has a modern reception area with a bar. The breakfast room is just behind this and serves a full range of options. The bedroom was on the small side, but had everything we wanted for a short stay. We were at the back of the hotel and slept fine, there could be a noise issue at the front, but ear plugs are available.



Perfect location,perfect people,excellent modern room,breakfast excellent!!!!!!!bars ,restaurant,shopping mall, bus station everything..nearby hotel!its my favorite hotel,the price it’s very good for all these!



My husband and I have been traveling for the past 7 weeks throughout Europe. We have stayed in B&Bs, a Private VRBO, Hilton (on 3 different occasions), and other hotels. This hotel was among one of our favourite stays. The Ibis on Edinburgh's Royal Mile was in a fantastic location; it was very quick to access many monuments and amenities. We walked with our bulky luggage from Waverly Station, which was very easy. The first thing that was noticed was our reception. We were welcomed immediately by staff and they made sure to have everything ready upon on our arrival (do the pre-arrival checkin; it makes a difference). The staff spent time not just helping us. We continuously observed them assisting other travelers with ideas of where to eat, places to visit, and even long distance trips within Scotland. The staff made an effort to know our names, and if felt great returning to the hotel and be greeted by our first names. We're members with Hilton and we didn't have this experience with them on this trip. Also, breakfast was equivalent to the meals that we ate at some of the B&Bs, and in the Hilton private lounges. Granted, the Hilton lounges had a few more options for beverages, the basics were almost identical. In North American terms, the rooms are small but having traveled through Europe, we had actually stayed in smaller rooms, including one at the Hilton in Munich. Also, There was an issue with other guests on our floor smoking in their room (this is a non-smoking hotel). The hotel dealt with the situation swiftly and effectively. We have never stayed in an IBIS hotel prior to this trip, and it really has made us reevaluate where our future stays will occur. I had read previous reviews about the younger staff in red shirts and their ipads checking you in upon arrival. I was a little concerned but I loved the staff. After reading other reviews, I had made a request to not have a room over looking Hunter square and, if possible, to be away from the elevators. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that both requests were met. This has never happened before (we're light sleepers). This hotel will do anything they can to ensure that you have a pleasant stay. If you need anything, the staff are eager to assist. Upon leaving the hotel, we were given hugs goodbye by some of the staff who took the time to get to know us in the brief stay that we had in this hotel. That's never happened at the Hilton!



Excellent location. In a walking distance to every place we went. Very loos atmo and nice staff. Rooms just perfect for this price. Me and my son were very satisfied with our stay. Will definitely stay there again. One strange things with the rooms. The sink at the bathroom was very low. We loved Edinburg. Great hospitality everywhere we went. Thanks!
