Nedkelly Families - 24/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

On arrival we asked if we could book an extra room rather than sharing a family room with our teenager, The young girl that greeted us was extremely helpful and made al the arrangements in a few minutes whilst we sat and waited. The rooms were clean, modern and the air conditioning was a must in the current weather. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and we would definitely stay here again. Really well located for the shopping areas and only a 10 minute stroll from the royal mile.

Wendy Friends - 23/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have stayed in many hotels on George Street and I would easily say Ibis Styles holds its own. For a city stay it’s perfect. Friendly, helpful staff, Quiet no city noise, lovely continental breakfast served, clean tidy rooms. Not big rooms but is anything in Edinburgh. Great stay, we will definitely be back.

Karenm Families - 23/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent location. Very welcoming on arrival and probably one of the best check in experiences, it was quick and informative. Room was just as I hoped, very clean and well equipped. Loved our little balcony and it’s view down to leith. Plentiful breakfast and choice and staff service to ensure tables were kept clean and prepared. Dined in on an evening and food excellent and well presented. Overall a lovely stay, I would highly recommend and would most certainly return.

Edinburgh break

susan s 23/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

Never stayed in an Ibis before but was drawn to this one for the location. Been to Edinburgh many times so wanted to be central and near the train station. The building is lovely with a very modern interior. The lady at check in was great, it was all really simple and easy. Booked a balcony room and wasn’t disappointed. Fantastic views of the Firth of Forth. Breakfast is continental and the staff are really helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Enjoyed my stay here, only gripe would be - no bath. After a hot, hectic day sightseeing it would have been nice to have a soak.

Dear susan s, Wow what a great review! Thank you for your fantastic feedback. Although we do not have any bath in any of our bathrooms, I am glad to be reading you enjoyed your top floor balcony bedroom which definitely has breath taking views of our Scottish Capital. We hope to seeing you soon again. Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team

Anne S. Families - 22/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

First shock was the fact we payed higher price because of balcony, but when we put towels on the floor meaning they need to be replaced there, they were never picked up/replaced, I had to call down for some. We took off early the next morning, return mid afternoon, looking forward to a drink and a rest, opened the door to find our room had not be done yet. The first night was the worst, but all 5 days of stay, considering the Virus, our floor had never been touched with a sweeper, never mind vacuum. Because of the experience with Covid, you were not able to show off your buffet, I found it quite boring to be honest ordering from a restricted menu. Staff were very pleasant & friendly!, in minus Covid times may be things would be different & we would enjoy the visit more.

Dear Anne, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the ibis Styles Edinburgh St Andrew Square.

Sightsee567130 16/09/2020 TripAdvisor review

Good location for Waverley rail station. Well renovated classic Edinburgh dwelling. Easy check in, helpful reception staff. Covid managed safely and appropriately. Plentiful breakfast with good choice. Spacious room for price. Only issue the threshold at the top of the front door steps needs illumination. At dusk and evening it is a potential hazard for seniors( myself included) and less mobile. Beware.

Dear Sightsee567130, Thank you so much for leaving us with such an amazing review following your recent stay in Ibis Styles Edinburgh St Andrew Square. It is wonderful to see that you enjoyed all the aspects of your stay and I would like to offer a special thank you for noticing all the efforts we are doing daily in the fight against Covid-19. We have also noted your comment in regards to our entrance step and will work on improving the lighting. We will look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Emilien & the Styles Team
