One night in Edinburgh

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

germanshep TripAdvisor review

The hotel could not have been in a better location to use trams and explore the city, my friend and I were here for one night to see Bruce Springsteen. The staff we encountered were a credit to the company and first class, we found our twin room a little small but for a night it was no problem. We would have liked a hot section on the b/f buffet cut we knew this at time of booking so no problem, the late night bar was good with once again nice polite staff at all times. We were on the second floor and heard little or no external noise at all

Terrific stay in St. Andrew’s Square!

Erik M Couples - TripAdvisor review

Very enjoyable and pleasant stay at ibis St. Andrew Square! This hotel is in an outstanding location in Edinburgh’s new town. All of Edinburgh’s most notable sights are within short walks (5-15 minute) of this hotel. I also think new town is a better area to stay than old town — more peaceful, but also just a short walk to all the major sights as mentioned! The hotel was very clean, and the staff was welcoming and helpful! The lobby area was particularly nice and stylish. Complimentary breakfast was a solid perk. Our room was satisfactory — not a large room, but certainly suitable for our stay. The room was clean and organized. The bed was also very comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel! 4 star review based on the small size of the room, but overall…an excellent location, comfortable and clean hotel, and good value for the price, in my opinion.

Dear Erik, Thank you for sharing your feedback about your recent stay. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our outstanding location and found it convenient for exploring the city's major sights. It's great to know that our clean and stylish hotel, along with the welcoming and helpful team, contributed to your pleasant stay. We also appreciate your kind words about our complimentary breakfast as well. Regarding the room size, we understand that some rooms might be smaller due to the building's history as a former bank, but we're glad it was suitable for your stay and that you found the bed comfortable. We are looking forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes, Karina.MIKALAUSKAITE, Front office Manager

The room was excellent, however I didn’t like the generator going all night. I did have ear plugs, to block out some of the noise

Dear Kathleen, Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are delighted to hear that you found our location near Waverley Station to be convenient and that you enjoyed your room. However, we apologize for the inconvenience caused by the generator noise during your stay.
