Customer Reviews

Partnership with



Stayed one night after an event in Edinburgh. We chose this hotel for its great location - very central for the train station, retaurants, shops etc. The welcome is always warm, and the beds comfortable, which is all we really want.



Friendly welcoming staff on arrival. Good room on 6th floor with balcony although didn't use it because of the wild and windy weather!! but would be great in spring or summer. Down side room was very draughty from the patio doors heating was quite difficult to control. Had to ask for extra duvet for bed which was quickly delivered. Towels rather small. Breakfast was good for a continental would be better if hot milk was easily available for the instant porridge and cereals. In all a pleasant stay and very central.

Stayed here one night and it was fabulous. Staff were really friendly and helpful and room was great. So clean and everything you could need. Modern and quirky just what I was looking for for my son and I. We had a room with a balcony which I hadn't expected so that was an added bonus with great views. The beds are very comfortable and had a great nights sleep - which is unusual for me! Breakfast was super and plentiful with a good choice of continental breakfast whatever your tastes. All in all a fab stay and wish I'd booked another night instead of just the one. Will 100% be back and would highly recommend.



This hotel is perfect for a city centre stay, step out the door straight into the shops and bars .Excellent room ,very comfy bed and very clean & tidy. The continental breakfast has a good choice and plenty of it .I would definitely recommend to friends and will definitely stay here again . Great value



3rd or 4th time at this hotel. Good value for money and great front desk staff. Ideal location 100 meters from bus station. Room this time was a bit smaller than usual but no big deal. Free tea, coffee, hot chocolate in the lounge area. Hot chocolate better than that served in most of the well-known coffee chains.

I have used this hotel on several occasions for overnight stays in Edinburgh prior to flying out to various destinations. The room was large with all the necessary facilities. Wifi was free in the rooms. Good choices at breakfast. This is a good location for bus/train/airport transport. The staff are friendly and helpful. Tea and coffee was readily available in reception as well as in the rooms.



Having stayed in this IBIS previously I was looking forward to my return - part business, part pleasure. The location is perfect - 10 mins walk to Waverley Station and on the tram route if you are arriving by plane. It's a well constructed hotel with excellent staff (particularly Jacopo) and breakfast is reasonable. I look forward to staying again in the summer months.

Modern, central hotel. Friendly staff, comfortable room, clean and spacious bathroom. Ideal for a short break. We had a room at the rear of the hotel which was very quiet considering the St Andrew's Square location. Buffet breakfast is included in the price. We were there at a busy time and the breakfast area was slightly chaotic although thanks to the helpful staff we did get what we wanted in the end. Hard to find a table to eat at but that was the only negative aspect of the whole trip. Otherwise the experience was very positive from start to finish and we would certainly book again. Free tea and coffee all day in the breakfast area too!



Wife and I stayed one night, easy check in, helpful staff and in a prime location in Edinburgh. Ease of access to transport links,city centre, historic old town and new town.Second stay there and will return.



This was my second time at this hotel. Room very clean and comfortable, excellent location for shops and central Edinburgh. Easy walk from Waverely Train Station. Breakfast busy but good a no problem stay. Recommended



A business trip to Edinburgh gave me the chance to try out this property in the centre of town. It was ideal, and would happily stay there again - both for business and pleasure. The staff were a real credit to their employers, so I hope this review adds to their bonus pot!



Room was on small side but very clean and adequate, service very good and friendly staff. Great location for all amenities. Very good choice for Continental breakfast free coffee was a great bonus to receive.



Went to Edinburgh with my 2 daughters been to ibis styles before and was pleased with it so booked again for a birthday weekend for youngest daughter very central to most things very clean rooms friendly helpful staff a lively continental breakfast serviced for a full 3hour slot tea coffee and various other hot drinks free whenever you want



I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel in St Andrews Square. The staff were pleasnt and helpful and assured a hassle free experience from check in to check out.. I had a spacious room on the top floor with a balcony and a view across the city and the Firth of Forth to Fife. The hotel decor is quirky modern Scottish - a bagpipe stag graces the foyer window - and room decor takes its cue from the building's former use as a financial institution.. The breakfast service was a bit of a scrum, as is often the case at Ibis Style hotels, but patiience and perseverance pay off. The hotel is right in the city centre and you can easily walk to most places of interest, though be prepared for hills and steps as Edinburgh is not a city on the flat.

My girlfriend and I were greeted by a young man, I think his name was Matthew. He was amazing! So kind and happy. Perfect stay from the moment we entered. We will definitely be back at some point in the future.



I stayed for 1 night in Edinburgh for an event at the university. I arrived early in the morning and was expecting to just leave my bags before heading to my meeting but they were able to get me checked in right away and I was able to settle in before heading out for a full day. This is my 3rd stay with this hotel and every time I come to Edinburgh it will be my first choice.

Hotel is close to any important point (Castle, Calton Hill, Panorama, st. Giles Catedral, Camera obscura, Train station, airport shuttle, tram, bus, galleries, restaurant, shopping, etc) in town by walk. Coffe / tea available 24/7 is very pleasant.

From the welcoming smile greeting us to us checking out the stay was perfect. Just what we needed. Breakfast was just right. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Location was perfect. We will be going back



Hotel was clean and the rooms were modestly sized. The location was also very nice in Old Town and 2 blocks from the Scott Monument. There were not a lot of restaurants around, but there's a Sainsbury Local nearby. The room came with breakfast, although the offerings could be improved. Free coffee and tea are available the whole day!



Room 3. ibis seem to think disabled people should be locked in a cellar. A room under reception with a view of all the smokers outside the window. Noise and noise. Another room was offered but was totally unsuitable for disabled people. IBIS and their staff do not care about disabled people.


Hotel design


The hotel is full of character and maintains modern functionality with a nod to tradition. Purple, green and blue bring a distinctive Scottish hue which is enhanced by funky furnishings such as wee whiskey barrel nightstands and wry Scot-slang friezes which educate as well as inspire. Take a course in Scottish slang as embroidered carpets with local lingo take you on a winding journey through the country's colourful use of language. Illustrated murals in each room tackle different Scottish themes, meaning you might fall asleep in a field of thistles or be woken by the glare of a highland stag. And of course, where there are trimmings, they're in tartan.

Creatively crafted with full of Gaelic heritage and humour, our native designer pays homage to this cosmopolitan city still roaring with a fierce national pride. The hotel is alive with the energy, wit and vibrance of native artists, writers and comedians who sing, splash and regale with their tales of the city and surrounding Highlands. Herringbone plays with stainless steel and bonds Baronial with slapstick, wittily reflecting the diversity of the capital.

The interior ensures that your Celtic adventure continues when you step back into your hotel. The character and warmth of this proud country will be just as alive in the carpet beneath your feet as in the heather you walk through or Scotch you sip. Playful cultural references will keep you smiling throughout your stay in your own wee Scottish haven. Just watch out for Nessie who's hidden amongst the décor of the corridors!
