paulj576 Families - TripAdvisor review

My daughter and I recently spent three nights at the Ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland. The room was included in a Gate 1 tour, so I cannot really comment on the price. The hotel is located across from Hunter Square in Old Town. The location is ideal. The general midpoint of the Royal Mile is about a block away; the main Waverly train station is about three blocks away. There are many coffee shops, restaurants (eat-in & carry-out) and shops in the area. I would describe this Ibis as a less expensive boutique hotel. There is a small combined lobby with some seating, a registration desk (more like an open counter) and cocktail bar. The dining area, where breakfast is served, is off to the side. Wifi is free. Check-in was courteous and efficient. We were assigned room 109. Like most European hotels, the room was small by US standards. But truthfully, it was one of the smallest rooms I’ve ever encountered. As is common in Europe, you have to put your room key/card in a slot when you enter to have power in the room. You also need to use your card to access the elevator. The room was clean and decorated in what I would consider hipster contemporary. There was no separate closet, but rather an unusual closed-off section in the corner with an attached clothes rod with wooden hangers. (See picture.) Communal irons and ironing boards are in in alcove in the outside hallway. No in-room safe, refrigerator nor telephone. You can elect to go green and forgo daily maid service. Furniture consisted of a bent wood desk, small console table, one bedside table and a bucket-type chair. An electric teapot and assorted coffee/tea fixings were on the desk. There also was a charging power cube with USB ports and outlets on the desk. No luggage rack. Our standard double/twin room came with two twin beds. Each bed had only one pillow and a very warm duvet. (Extra pillows were in the corner “closet”). The beds were a little firm, but comfortable. Each bed had an Individual reading light and electric outlet. There also was a large flat-screen TV, backed by some whimsical wallpaper. (See picture.) Two negatives about the room. First, soundproofing was negligible - we could hear practically every conversation of anyone passing on the walkway under the window. Second, there literally was no free floor space to set our luggage without it being underfoot. The bathroom was fairly small, with neglible counter space around the sink. A hair dryer was in the corner “closet”. Wall-mounted hand soap and hair/body wash (in the shower) were the toiletries The glass shower enclosure was normal-sized, but the floor was a bit slippery. Water pressure and temperature were fine. Bath towels were generous; no washcloths though. Breakfast was included with the room and was served off the lobby. The offerings consisted of the usual combination of hot & cold items. Overall, we were very pleased with the location of the hotel and would recommend it for anyone wanting to explore Old Town Edinburgh. The price you pay would be a small room, but chances are you wouldn’t spend much time in the room anyway. For more specific details and pictures, visit the hotel’s website.
