Brian H. Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

Just a 10-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverly Station, this Ibis hotel was convenient to many sights in Edinburgh. The Albert Memorial, Harvey Nichols, St. Andrew Square and the hop-on, hop-off bus stop are moments away. The room was small, but who needs a palace when you just want a comfy, clean place to lay your head and rest your feet after a long but fulfilling day of sightseeing. The shower was roomy and had plenty of hot water. If you prefer bar soap instead of body wash, bring your own. The breakfast was diverse and filling, offering something for everyone. I ate at the restaurant/bar every night and recommend the battered Haggis Bonbons appetizer for a tasty version of Scotland’s most famous menu item. The second night I ate two orders and skipped the main course! The staff are great, efficient and friendly. I highly recommend this property.

Lovely end to our honeymoon

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Lizzie Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed for one night to finish our honeymoon touring Scotland. When booking, I requested a room with a view of Calton Hill (where we got engaged) and we arrived to a decorated room, card and bottle of wine (plus the view!) The breakfast the next morning looked amazing and we were able to enjoy a coffee before going for a pre-booked breakfast at Dishoom (across the street). Despite the city centre location (on a Saturday night), it was quiet and we had a great night’s sleep.

(Expensive) room felt like being in university accommodation: small, no view, no bath mat, no water, no soundproofing (could hear all the water running next door), not great at all, but staff were friendly, breakfast good, and the lounge/bar area was great. Very well located.

Great location but understaffed

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Judith Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is very well located on the square, very close to public transport and within walking distance to explore all the Edinburgh sites. The hotel was very busy during our stay. At breakfast time they were severely understaffed. Guests had to clear dirty dishes from tables to find somewhere to sit. The staff were very hardworking but unable to cope. Food supplies needed to refilled but staff could not keep up. The room was very small but adequate for a one night stay. It was clean but needed maintenance. Dirty marks on walls and shabby towels it needed some TLC. Our room including breakfast and ACCOR discount was £243 for a very small queen size room. It was vastly overpriced for the quality of room we received. It is a shame because the hotel is located in an outstanding position. The check in experience was very rushed and dismissive. We had stayed in another ACCOR hotel property the week before where the check in process was welcoming and friendly.

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

mabellaMiami_Fl_ TripAdvisor review

Great stay in a great city. The Ibis at St. Andrew Square was very well appointed. Room was spacious and comfortable and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. For the hotels use, what would have made our stay better? Having a view. We were given a room in the basement, and though we had a window we had no type of view. I would never have chosen this room and though the room was spacious, I feel customers should be told when making a reservation that that is the type of room they will get. Additionally the bathroom was rather small. We made it work, but that was the smallest bathroom I've ever had in a hotel. Only other negative I can recall is the lack of charging or outlets near the beds. There was only 1 single charging port by the bed. The others had to charge their phones overnight and not have access to their phones since the ports were across the beds. Also would be nice to have some sort of rack or space to place your suitcase. We were in a triple and had to leave our suitcases strewn on the floor when packing/unpacking. As for the positives, Breakfast was very decent. Lobby area was very hip with several areas to relax in. Bar was great and available all day so very easy to have a drink whenever you got back from sightseeing and just wanted a night cap. Best thing about this hotel was the location. Right on St. Andrew's square, was a short walk to old Town, with lots of dinning options right around the square and convenient access to a shopping mall right across the square for the inevitable rainy day.

Dear mabellaMiami_FI_, Thank you for your 5 stars review! We're pleased to be reading all of the positives you are sharing but sorry that your triple bedroom could not be allocated onto a higher floor. Next time, we will ensure to ask you so you have the choice to be on our first floor or lower ground. We hope to seeing you back soon again! Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team
