Oz-Amanda Couples - TripAdvisor review

The hotel is in a great central location overlooking St Andrew Square and a 10 minute walk from Waverley Station. They have an arrangement with a Q-Park at the Omni Centre for discount parking. Ibis Styles have a quirky decor which differs at all hotels, this one has a funky Scottish theme. There is no actual reception, you just walk straight into the bar/lounge area. Staff are stationed at a small desk with a laptop. We received a friendly and efficient greeting and were pleased our room was ready early at 12.30pm. We had chosen a 'Works' room which was located on the top floor and had a separate lounge and bedroom with a corner balcony. This specific room looked out the back but you could see the northern suburbs of Edinburgh down to the Forth. We had mentioned in our booking the stay was for my birthday so we were delighted to find a small chocolate cake and card waiting in the room. The room was equipped with a coffee pod machine, kettle, tea & biscuits but no fridge, plates or wine glasses. There are two TVs - one in the bedroom and one in the lounge area. Two separate split cycle air conditioners on the wall of the bedroom and lounge area provided adequate heating, but we couldn't adjust the fan to low so it was quite loud and strong when turned on. The bathroom has just a large shower but no bath, with a decent sized vanity unit. There are dispensers for shampoo and body wash in the shower, so if you prefer soap and conditioner you would need to bring these yourself. There is also a hand cream dispenser on the vanity. No facecloth was provided. The hotel was perfectly comfortable and adequate for a one night stay but is missing amenities like a safe, a bedside clock and no tissues. The lighting was quite dim even though they had additional floor lamps. Also being a 'dog friendly' hotel there was a dog in the room next door who barked non stop for an hour or so in the early evening, but thankfully was quiet overnight and in the morning. Breakfast was included in the rate and is downstairs in the bar area. It was quite busy but we managed to find a table. It is a generous continental buffet with a good selection of pastries, bread for toast, fruit, cold cuts and cheese. There is also porridge, cereals, yoghurt, juice + tea & coffee from a machine. If you wanted a special coffee you had to order from the bar at an additional cost. They also had a scrambled eggs, but no other hot items. All in all it was a comfortable stay in a great location and at a fair price, but if you like expect 5 star amenities you may be a little disappointed. If you book via the Accor website and are a member of All, you can receive a discounted rate and free wifi.

Location fabulous for all amenities in Edinburgh Room very small a bit claustrophobic and painting of large stag facing you in bed not very attractive to be honest!! Breakfast was ok but only scrambled egg as warm choice rest was continental type but sufficient! Ideal for one night stay and comfortable

My only complaint is the rooms are very small and the beds are extremely small. Overall the stay was enjoyable. Unfortunately the fire on the block at the end of our stay prohibited us from doing what we wanted to.

Nice hotel good location

3RD Time at the Ibis the hotels are good but the price of the drink is a ripoff Understand you alway pay more in a hotel but not nearly treble. If you reduce the price more people would stay and drink in the hotel
