Great location and thr staff were excellent

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Zoe W. Couples - 20/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

I can't speak highly enough about the staff in the hotel, all were really helpful and friendly. The sink in the bathroom wasn't working properly but once the problem was brought to the hotel's attention they fixed it straight away. The room was adequate with constantly restocked tea, coffee and biscuits. Set just off the Royal Mile the location is perfect and surprisingly there was no problem with noise. The breakfast was adequate for a budget hotel although sometimes the hot food had dried out a bit. All in all the hotel is a nice, comfortable and relaxing place.

Could be better

Customer review rating 2.5/5

John P. Couples - 17/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was fine for an overnight. Bed was hugely comfortable and we had a great sleep. The carpet in room 601 has stains over it. The breakfast is the one but that really let the hotel down. We paid £20 to add the breakfast and ended up having to eat elsewhere once we checked out. The cooked food had all been left out far too long and were all very hard and the hot water from the machine wasn’t hot enough to melt the milk powder in the porridge pots so that wasn’t edible either.

Always look forward to staying @ Ibis, it’s well located, and excellent value for money.

A really warm welcome extended by the Ibis team, it was just like meeting friends again. Our request for a particular room, is always met whenever possible, or the next best alternative is given. A card stating “welcome back Gloria” accompanied by two muffins left on the hospitality tray, not only amused us but absolutely delighted us! Such a kind and thoughtful gesture from “team Ibis”

Dear Gloria, Wow what a great review! It’s great to see that you enjoyed your stay with us at the ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile - Hunter Square.

However was very disappointed with the breakfast and only one bedside table? Partner having to use the floor. Was put in room on 6th floor and the noise of wind coming through the window all night was terrible! Bathroom door also did not close Breakfast might be ok at 6.30 but by 8/8.30 the cooked items were completely dry and unbeatable! Even the beans

City centre location so convenient for sightseeing

Melanie O. Couples - 13/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room had everything we needed and was clean. Very good value in January. Breakfast was very basic but this could be related to covid restrictions. I would have liked muesli as an option and some prepared fresh fruit. The cooked breakfast options were limited. The best thing about the hotel is the location, which is unbeatable and there are a couple of nice pubs that do food practically next door. (Nice steak pie at The Piper's Rest). Overall our stay was very pleasant and staff were helpful.

Modern rooms in the tourist center

Anonymous Solo - 12/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Rooms are modern, very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was small but functional. The breakfast buffet was poor in food selection and quality relative to the positive overall hotel experience. The location is excellent for tourists wishing to see the main sights, steps from the Royal Mile, an abundance of restaurants, and a short walk downhill to the train station.

Brian Families - 12/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Everything was good. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. Room was good. It was a bit noisy early one morning and it might have been helpful to be able to close the external sash window but couldn't see how. Also there was storage for bags after checking out which staff sorted but I couldn't find details on printed info.

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Andika Families - 05/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is well located near Edinburgh Waverley station and other tourist attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland, the Royal Mile, and so on. There are so many destinations to go right within walking distance from the hotel. The price we got was also very good as it was competitive with other hotels in the area. However, as the location is near pubs and cafes, it can get pretty noisy outside at night.

BigNoel2011 21/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

We went to Edinburgh for a 4 day family reunion. We arrived a few hours before we were supposed to check-in. But the very courteous girl at the desk was able to let us check in early. That was great as we had travelled for quite a few hours to get there. First impressions were excellent, as always with Ibis hotels. I have used them all over Europe and they never disappoint. The foyer was warm and inviting, with a small bar area at the front looking out in to the square. The room was also warm and cosy, and spotless too. Breakfast was very nice, self service buffet style. Plenty of choice, hot or cold, and a continental selection if you liked that as well. All in all a pleasing stay at the Ibis Edinburgh. We will be back someday and will definitely use the Hotel again.

ReneTeresa 12/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Location, location, location. Great staff, great staff, great staff. The "new" rooms are very functional, comfy and well laid out.. The rooms are very clean and up-to-date. We normally don't do breakfast here since there are a lot of good places nearby. We always stop in Edinburgh on the way up north to visit family. On our recent trip to Edinburgh, we stayed here for one night before heading up to Aberdeen and on the way back, two nights but then decided to extend our stay for two more nights. We were not disappointed. This place is near the Waverly Train station, easy access to Edinburgh airport, in the Royal Mile, places to go for a meal and drinks are at your doorstep. Street noise was not an issue. We don't know what it is like to stay here if you have your own car. The front desk staff is excellent - especially Florian and Ricky, This place follows a COVID safe guidelines.. We felt COVID safe staying here. This is our home away from home in Edinburgh..
