Good but lots of room for improvement

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Carole P. Friends - 24/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Lovely clean twin room, five coat hangers were provided which is not enough for two women! Kettle provided but no plug socket situated near it so had to move it to a narrow shelf where phones were plugged in which I didn’t think was particularly well thought out. THE BEDS WERE HORRENDOUS! They were the hardest beds I’ve ever been unfortunate enough to sleep on. There was a thin mattress topper on each bed but I can only compare it to camping on a roll mat on the floor. For this reason alone I wouldn’t go back to this hotel. Rooms weren’t cleaned due to COVID-19 regulations, which was fine, however some cleaning products in the room would have been nice so we could clean the sink shower and toilet. A hairdryer & Toiletries were provided and were lovely. A good room let down by the concrete slab style beds!

Budget hotel at its best!

We had a very good stay in Edinburgh, all of the team members were top notch with us and we didn't have any problems during check-in/check-out. Just a couple of notes for the room: - The mesh curtain closest to the bathroom had some stain that really looked like blood. - In the sink, there was some pink goo stuck to the basin. - The A/C was very loud and erratic, even trying to control the speed of the fan, sometimes it would just ramp-up very loudly and it would start clicking for, at least, some 5 minutes at a time. - I know this one is more difficult, but a room with only one power outlet in 2021 is borderline unacceptable, worst yet, is far from the bed. Hopefully you guys can check that room out before someone with less understanding stays there. Keep up the amazing job and lets hope for better days for hospitality post-COVID. Cheers!

I stayed one night and was going to a football game 22.07.The 2 ladies that booked me in ( one from Bulgaria, not sure where the other was from) were very polite and then one of the ladies printed off my match ticket for me. The staff at breakfast were also exceptional, very polite and helpful.This only comes from a good manager to start with so congrats to who oever that is too.

A great stay, perfect location

We chose the Ibis because the location was perfect for an event we were attending. The staff were charming. The room was spacious and we were grateful for good air conditioning in a spell of unusually warm weather. Overall an excellent stay. Only niggle was tasteless leathery bacon.

Tricia H. Couples - 24/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Simple and quick check in, friendly staff. Situated near lots of food outlets and supermarket so really convenient, plus the station is a few minutes walk away. Stayed for two separate nights in the same fortnight. Upgraded to a slightly bigger room second time which was spacious. Simple menu in restaurant. We ordered food to pick up and take to our room. Good quality food. Would stay again if in Edinburgh.

Great location

Cathy Couples - 24/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Exactly what we needed. Perfectly located in the Old Town so we were in walking distance of The Castle, Arthur's Seat, The Royal Mile, numerous restaurants and bars. The room was big, clean and comfortable.

Despite arriving at around 12.30pm -check in is at 2pm- the woman at reception was very helpful and took all our luggage into a room which allowed us to enjoy Edinburgh luggage free before check in. Rooms very clean, staff always saying hi and the bar downstairs has a great outdoor area which was like heaven in the heat lol! Will definitely be using this hotel again. Thank you to all the staff for a great stay!

uist11 18/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

What a fantastic find this hotel was. The staff are excellent, probably the best we have come across. The rooms are clean and spacious and there is an excellent bar and breakfast area with an outside patio. The hotels position couldn’t be any better, 2 minute walk to the Royal Mile/High St and 2 minutes to National Museum, less than 10 minutes to Grassmarket. Have stayed twice in the last month, would happily go back tomorrow if I could.

Great Location with a View

Pamela T 16/02/2020 TripAdvisor review

Great Location with a view of Arthur's Seat from my room. Hotel Staff was welcoming and helpful making trip a success. Enjoyed all the amenities and even found the wonderfully placed tables on bridge access to rooms that provided for a good place to picnic and watch people make their way around city, great view up to Hunter's Square and the Royal Mile.

We are so lucky to have a property in the heart of Edinburgh and a very strategic location that brings our guest just a few steps away from must-see attractions and modern-day conveniences. He hope to see you soon ! Kind regards, Katerina

Good rooms but traffic noise

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Graeme347 Family - 17/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is well located and this is it's strength and perhaps weakness. The room had was very good - a spacious top floor double which had plenty of light and fairly good blackout blinds. The welcome was excellent and the hotel facilities were also of a good standard for this level of hotel. The downside: traffic & people noise (external) during the night. Obviously the hotel isn't responsible for this, but they told us at least twice that it ha recently had double glazing installed to address this. Well the level of double glazing isn't really good enough. We've stayed at other city hotels were external noise has been greatly reduced. You are only affected if you are a light sleeper and other hotels may not be any better. Overall at a stay of £50 per room per night it is hard to quibble about value for money here.

Hello Graeme347, Thanks very much for taking the time to leave a review of your stay with us, we really appreciate this. I am very pleased hat you received a warm welcome, a great spacious room and that you enjoyed the hotel amenities during your stay. The comments you have made regarding our location I believe to be true our location can be the biggest draw but not without its set backs. Some people may enjoy the liveliness of this bustling city while others not so much, I do apologies that it caused you to enjoy your stay less than what we would have wanted, I do hope however that it will not deter you from a follow up visit. Thanks once again, Stacey and the ibis team,.
