Hotel location is excellent with just a short walk from Waverley station. Room was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. On twin rom beds were quite narrow but comfortable enough. Only problem the shower cabin was leaking water into the toilet floor.

Stayed for my daughter’s graduation, the staff were extremely helpful and gave us rooms just after mid-day so we could change. Fab location for the royal college of surgeons. Also close to the castle and railway station. Hotel and room very clean. Staff also put a card under her door. First time we have used an ibis hotel and very impressed.

We had a great room on the 5th floor overlooking Arthur Seat. The secondary glazing really stopped any external sounds from the city. Loved the large TV screen with phone casting capability. Nice touch. Staff in hotel are lovely and were always ready to help. Breakfast was both tasty and gave excellent value. This hotel has a great location in Hunters Square, and is ideally located for the Royal Mile.

We stayed 6 nights. Near transportation and attractions. All are within walking distance. The room is clean, clean bed sheet, clean bathroom, free coffee, tea & shortbread in our room. The only downside was, the exhaust fan inside the toilet seems not working. Overall it was a good stay.

Great location, friendly helpful staff, comfortable room with hospitality tray. Buffet breakfast well presented in a clean and tidy dining area. We were very impressed with all the hotel staff but especially in the dining area where the young man in charge was frequently checking all was in order.

Martin Couples - 08/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

3 night stay on B&B basis. Rooms were ok - nothing special. First room had a blocked sink. Reported within an hour via WhatsApp (their preferred method), but nobody came to fix it despite responses via WhatsApp. Moved rooms at 5pm the following day. Next room had a shower that wouldn't fit in its holder correctly. Didn't bother reporting it due to previous experience. Pre-booked late check-out but found key card stopped working when we returned to collect our bags at 4pm. Breakfast was excellent and more than made up for the room standard. Don't expect a 5* experience for this price.

Dear Martin, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile - Hunter Square. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff We apologise about the room standard and I can promise that if you stay again, that standard will not be met. I am delighted that breakfast mroe than made up for your issues. If you stay with us again, please dont hesitate to come to us and we will re-encode your keys. Guests that have a late check out find that yhtier keys cut off at 12 for safety reasons and will need them re-coded after then, or sometimes they need re-coded if they have been near a phone or magnet. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Hannah

Our 2nd visit to Ibis Hunter Square Edinburgh. We arrived early and greeted by receptionist in a warm and friendly way. The guy checked and advised our room was ready. As previously the room was extremely clean the bed comfortable and we had a large flat screen tv on the wall. Very quiet. We had booked for breakfast which was plentiful with large selection to chose from. The only criticism I have is that on the Thursday morning the hot food trays were empty apart from scrambled eggs and beans. It took over 25 minutes for sausage bacon and hash browns to be replenished . I know that these are cooked fresh however we were aware that the trays were empty at 8.50 and we had to wait for our breakfast. We are not lovers of continental. Just think that when the staff see the food getting low then they should start to cook so that customers are not left waiting especially so if those customers were business men and women who were probably on tight schedules. It may be that the kitchen were short staff that day. I had to ask for glasses for orange juice and watched the member of staff go to the bar and returned with 3 glasses. Quite a few people were hanging around for them at the time even the orange was very low in the dispenser . However on the Friday the breakfast was extremely good replenished frequently and no waiting for cups or glasses. All in very good service apart from the Thursday morning. Room cleaned every day and was spotless. We will definitely stay here again central to everything. We have been going to Edinburgh for my husbands birthday for the past 7 years and this is by far the best budget hotel . Highly recommend. Paulibe Sunderland

Good Morning We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Ibis Hunter square. We hope that you were able to explore and love Edinburgh as much as we do.

great location, very good bedroom, excellent service, breakfast should have real porridge given location (can be on order like Premier Inns) and choice of muesli, not granola. This stopped us eating your breakfast. The quaker porridge was disgusting. Overall excellent - just the breakfast bit.
