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.

Perfect location

Spent two nights at this hotel for a short break in Edinburgh. Arrived by train so this hotel was in the perfect location. Room at back of hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast each morning was ample with selection of hot and cold. Would stay here again when visiting this city.

It’s the staff that make this hotel so special

It’s been almost two years since I was last able to visit. I came for a four night visit and everyone was so friendly and helpful. It was more like staying with friends than in an hotel. I can’t wait to come back.

Great location, enjoyable stay.

Comfortable room and clean. £1.50 for a packet of crisps and £14.00 for a large Gin and Tonic was way over the top.

I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. We are sorry that you felt our bar prices were a bit over the top. The VAT in Scotland has recently increased leading to a price increase in all bars across Edinburgh, however we hope it did not affect your stay too much. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Hannah Herschell Guest Experience & ALL Ambassador

Maureen R. Couples - 19/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

As a frequent traveller I have to say we were disappointed in the overall service the location by was perfect and the room clean upon arrical sadly that’s where it ends - I found 2 girls on reception less than willing to help even to the extent of one asking me to bring my used towels down to exchange for clean ones or just “leave them where they were” and she would give me clean ones to take to my room - I don’t leave dirty laundry lying around at home I am certainly not doing it in a hotel - understood we are living in unprecedented times but I do not come away on a break to do my own housekeeping I insisted staff change the towels which they finally agreed to do however there was no other housekeeping carried out that day hospitality tray toilet rolls and soap dispensers were not replenished nor was the bed made! On the second day sadly it was the same saga I went back to reception again to ask for assistance I was once again met with the same less than helpful receptionist who tried to give me a fresh pile of towels to take to my room even though we were dressed to go out for the day finally after having to tell her I wanted the room serviced we did have house keeping! I don’t travel on a break to be met with such unprofessionalism or indeed to have to keep asking for what are “the basics” we certainly shall not be back - we can appreciate changes have to be made due to Covid restrictions but what I cannot understand is why a basic service like housekeeping which I would say is a priority as we know it is much better to keep everything clean and fresh was such a battle to get done especially when the housekeeping trolley was on our floor each day doing other rooms? May I add you had a wonderful staff member on of an evening in the bar and he was always pleasant when we bought a drink when we came in from dinner

no issue - well located

Night reception staff were the most helpful. Day staff not so much, it was clear everything was a bit of a hassle for the girls on reception. Location was brilliant for all city Centre browsing. Apparently we got a free upgrade…. Although the room was comfy and clean I’m not sure how that was classed as an upgrade! I dread too think of the original room. Breakfast was ok, I only ate Continental! The cooked breakfast was not kept warm and the scrambled eggs looked so dry with some sort of seasoning through it. I did ask for poached but they do not do eggs to order only the scrambled. I asked a waiter if he could bring me a little milk, he filled the main canister up told me to get it myself. Drinks are £6 odds each for pints. There is no fridge in your room so no access to drinking water or if you buy your own it will go warm. The price was ok, the location helped justify the cost.

Pleasant enough, very clean.

Thankfully I had asked for a quiet room which we had as obviously a busy area. Very central, clean, with basic toiletries, good shower the flush on the toilet made a terrible noise. We didn’t have breakfast, but all adequate for our needs.
