Best ibis I’ve been to

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Amerrycan TripAdvisor review

Definitely the best Ibis I’ve ever stayed in. The team at reception was fantastic, especially Zsanett. The room was recently renovated and almost perfect. Only thing I would recommend is to put a lock on the bathroom door. Other than that I can’t recommend anything better. The location is good next to St Andrew's tram stop and the views on the balcony were exquisite. The continental breakfast was good and the gent that made the cappuccinos at the bar made a 10/10 drink.

The best place to stay to explore Edinburgh and save $

Perfectly central location to walk all over! The staff was full of helpful recommendations and there are lots of restaurants nearby. You can expect a very comfortable bed and sheets, and a 10/10 breakfast that is above and beyond! Would definitely come back!

Great Stay

We visit Edinburgh around 3 times a year. This was our first visit to Ibis Styles and wow it didn’t disappoint. The location is fantastic right in St Andrews Square close to shops & within walking distance to Waverley station & the Royal Mile. Our room was on the 6th floor, recently refurbished & with a huge wrap around balcony affording us amazing views from the castle, Arthur’s Seat & out towards the Firth of Forth. As we stayed on a Sunday night we paid a reasonable rate for Edinburgh. Breakfast was buffet style continental. No hot items but choice was huge. Only regret was we were only there for one night but would definitely return.

Dear Annie, Thank you for this positive review. We are thrilled to hear that our central location served as the perfect base for your Edinburgh adventure, placing you within easy reach of the city's most treasured sights and shopping destinations. It is particularly gratifying to learn that your accommodation on the 6th floor, with its expansive balcony and stunning views of Edinburgh's iconic landmarks, elevated your experience with us. Our team takes great pride in offering well-appointed rooms that showcase the charm and character of our establishment, and it's wonderful to know that this aspect of your stay was memorable. While we understand that you were only able to join us for a short time, we're pleased that our continental breakfast left a positive impression and contributed to a hearty start to your day. Rest assured, we continually strive to provide a variety of options to please all palates and preferences. We look forward to welcoming you back on a future occasion. Best regards, Zoltan Fuzesy, Assistant General Manager

Ibis - stylish, modern, sustainable

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

MissPJ0920 TripAdvisor review

This Hotel is located right in the midst of new town. We were able to explore this area, and its within walking distance to the Scott Monument and the Royal Botanical Gardens. But if you are a walker, this hotel is in walking distance of all the sights in Edinburgh. If you are are used to bigger rooms to lounge hours away in, you will have to take your lounging downstairs to the beautiful lobby/bar/restaurant area. The rooms are big enough to end the day, but too small to spend the day. But if you're in Edinburgh, then you shouldn't be spending the day in a hotel room. The Ibis is a stylish modern hotel with a focus on service and sustainability. They use larger bottles for toiletries and keycard-operated energy-saving measures in dedication to the environment. And the staff, I cannot compliment the staff enough. They offer supportive and attentive service to all guests. We were not going to make the breakfast on the day of our departure. The desk team offered us take away bags with pastries and fruit. One of us was gluten free. They made sure that we had a GF takeaway breakfast. While we waited for our taxi that morning, one staff member served us coffee and visited with us until we departed. I was sad to leave Scotland that day and the Ibis stay was just one of a million reasons.

Dear Guest, Thank you for this review. We are thrilled to hear that our central location served as the perfect base for your explorations in Edinburgh. It's wonderful to know that the proximity to iconic sights such as the Scott Monument and the Royal Botanical Gardens enriched your visit. While we understand our rooms may be more cozy than spacious, we're pleased that the design and sustainability efforts throughout our hotel resonated with you. Our commitment to the environment through initiatives like larger toiletry bottles and keycard-operated energy-saving measures is something we're exceptionally proud of. Your commendations of our staff's attentive and supportive service truly warm our hearts. We strive to offer a personalised experience, and it's rewarding to know the team's efforts, such as accommodating special dietary needs, did not go unnoticed. The takeaway breakfast gesture is a small reflection of our desire to ensure each guest starts their day right, even when on the go. We are looking forward to your next visit, where the magic of Scotland and the charm of ibis Styles await to greet you once more. Thank you once again. Best regards, Zoltan Fuzesy, Assistant General Manager

Nice staff, very kind and useful.

Dear Chantal, Thank you very much for your feedback. We're delighted to hear that you found our location to be convenient and our staff welcoming and helpful. Our team takes great pride in delivering a memorable guest experience, and your kind words are genuinely appreciated. However, we note your comment regarding the room size. Our historic building's unique architecture does mean that some of our rooms are smaller than others, but we always aim to provide a cosy and comfortable space. Our planned refurbishment in 2024 will address modernising our rooms, which we hope will enhance the overall guest experience. Once again, thank you for your positive remarks about our well-situated hotel and the kindness of our staff. We hope to continue providing a service that makes our guests feel valued and taken care of. Please help us achieve our goal of being in the top 25 Edinburgh hotels by sharing your positive comments on Trip Advisor for others to view using the link https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g186525-d62…-Reviews-Ibis_Styles_Edinburgh_St_Andrew_Square-Edinburgh_Scotland.html We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back on future occasions.
