Our stay was great, apart from being abruptly woken up by the bin men moving large bins around at 6am unfortunately they were all just below our window. That was us awake & could not get back to sleep I would have scored 10 otherwise.

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Andrew F. Solo - 26/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was a very comfortable room and with good amenities. The only reasons that the rating is not higher is that the AC/Heating wasn't fully cooperative and would randomly switch settings sometimes and that the shampoo provided in the hotel dried out my hair.

Anonymous Families - 24/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Wonderfully sized room. Good location for access to tram/buses/new town. Great breakfast. Towels are too small and some were threadbare. Duvets very thin. Breakfast seating is haphazard (in fairness we were warned by staff that 9am is super busy) Rooms can be cold given the high ceilings. Noise at back of hotel early morning with bin collection. Overall a positive 8/10

silviacsmith 18/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

We took our little dog with us and were pleasantly surprised that they had left a bowl of food and water, and a bed for him. Food was great, staff were very friendly and helpful. My friend and I had the best Burger we've ever tasted! Location was central to all of the Edinburgh town centre shops. Highly recommended!

Dear silviacsmith, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! As a brand we are dog friendly and always do want to make them feel welcome! I will be sure to pass on your feedback about our Burger to our Bonnie & Whistle team too. We hope to seeing you soon again, Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team

Good location, but room not as expected

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

rjmanning 02/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Room shown on the site when booking showed balcony and view. When arrived the room did have a balcony and mainly the view of the roof of the building next door. Bathroom was a wet room and the around sink and toilet floor was very wet when we arrived, making it slippery. Had to use towels during visit to stop the water. Very disappointed with the what was provided versus what was advertised. Breakfast had some items missing on second day of visit. Hotel is in a good location to walk to the main sites and to visit restaurants etc

Dear rjmanning, Thank you for sharing your latest experience with us, but we are sorry to read room 601 was not what you had anticipated. We have noted your comments in regards our bathroom being slippery and we thank you for bringing this up to our attention - we have now rectified the issue. We hope you will give us another chance to welcome you back soon again. Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team

DilipBatra 13/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Overall an enjoyable stay. We stayed a full week and would have liked that if the breakfast menu could have been changed periodically. Room service facility should be added. The reception staff were very helpful with local tips, esp Mr Jon.

Dear DilipBatra, Thank you for your lovely review! We will make sure to pass on your kind feedback to Jon whom is definitely working hard to please our guests. We hope to seeing you back soon again. Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team

Compact

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Jim R 02/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

The Queen room is described as a double with a queen size bed. I was a solo visitor and I felt that the room was surprisingly and disappointingly “compact”. Two people in the room would have been a tight fit! The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The free breakfast was adequate but anyone hoping to get close to a full English or Scottish breakfast would have been disappointed (as I was). The bar area is very nice although many of the tables and seats are so low that they would seem very much at home in an infant school. It is situated in the New Town and is close to many amenities and attractions of the city.

Dear Jim R, We thank you for your feedback and although the size of your room was not as expected, we appreciate your kind words on our Sweet bed by Ibis and the cleanliness of our product. We have refurbished our bar last year and I am pleased to be reading you found it to be a nice fit. Our Continental breakfast is free of charge as brand standard, however we have incorporated some hot items in order to meet our guest needs and we hope that was appreciated. We do hope to seeing you back soon again, and please do let us know in advance so we can allocate you in one of our bigger room. Many thanks Emilien & the Styles team
