Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dark, gloomy rooms and corridors. Place full of noisy teenagers. Trendy but not practical rooms. No decent storage/hanging facilities. Bit depressing. Must be aimed at school parties? Breakfast very uninspiring. Seating in bar a little institutional. Grim.

Another great stay at Moxy Fountainbridge. Easy check in, friendly and helpful staff and a lovely quiet room. What more do you need! We were down for two nights over the weekend and have decided Moxy is our goto hotel when we want to stay near Edinburgh City Centre.

Throughly enjoyed our stay. We were able to check in three hours early and leave our bags on our departing day, which really made our trip stress free. All staff were incredibly friendly. Our room was very modern and the beds were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a little small and the pressure on the shower wasn’t fantastic but not a major issue for a few nights stay. We also found it odd to not have a towel rack. We enjoyed a tasty cocktail in the bar area downstairs and there is lots of games / music which created a nice atmosphere. Breakfast was enjoyable, with lots of choice and tasty pastries! Overall I would recommend this hotel, especially for a younger crowd.

The Edinburgh Moxy has a lovely vibe: relaxed yet stylish as well as comfortable and with excellent, caring, staff. Clearly, it’s well managed: the giveaway not just the good service, attention to detail, the cleanliness etc but a plainly happy team to look after you.

Stayed at the hotel in December for business, then arrived was greeted with warm welcome and a smile, on check in I explained that I travelled long way and would love to fresh in up prior to the meeting and staff tried their best to find me a room prior to the normal check in time. Rooms are beautiful very clean well designed,Wi-Fi super fast and there are plenty of working space in the lobby. Definitely recommend and will be back 😊

Another excellent stay at our favoured funky hotel group the Moxy. The location is perfect for a stroll to the grass market and it's superb eateries and bars or if the weather isn't great buses run every ten mins. Staff so helpful and we're always sociable even though they were working Christmas day and boxing day ( our stay). Do not hesitate to book . Off to our next Moxy in Sophia Antipolis in France in February let's hope it has everything Edinburgh gave us ...

Location is good, 10-15 mins from lots of restaurants and pubs, a 2-3 mins walk to the nearest Tesco, also the bus stop opposite hotel gets you to the centre/christmas market which was ideal. We had an issue with staff entering our room when occupied. Day 1 maintenance man entered, he was told the room was empty but we had already checked in. This should have rang alarm bells. Through our very short stay (Weds check in-Sat check out) we had 5 people enter. We also had someone knock on the door to walk away to then be stood at the room next door, when I asked if I could help she looked at me blankly. Housekeeping come round at 4-4:30pm (again entered the room) without knocking. Never known house keeping to come round so late… The young woman at reception and male manager were shocked that people entered and did give us 10% off our stay for the inconvenience but it was an invasion of privacy and made us feel quite uncomfortable during our stay. Our door was locked from the inside during all of the above but their keys clearly override the lock. There is no additional lock such as a chain to go over the door, had I known this we would not have booked. Overall, good location but will not be staying in a Moxy again.

The hotel is bit of a walk (around 1.5km) to city centre however the bus stop opposite the hotel is handy to get into the city Rooms are really comfortable with a relaxing bed and fabulous room amenities (however only downsize is there are no telephone in the room in case of an emergency). The staff were friendly from check in and on check out. Breakfast options were varied and refilled occasionally. Being a Bonvoy member with Mariott (Moxy, Sheraton, Ac hotels) are a preferred stay when it comes to hotels. On check in there was no welcome to the hotel being a Bonvoy member or a welcome drink provided (had to ask for it which was not something I would expect from Moxy). The receptionist was not sure what benefits are or not included in the Bonvoy membership (probably a refresher training would be handy). Lastly, the lobby is phenomenal, loved every bit of it what got to my attention on most occasions (as I spent time during the evening in the lobby) that there was a manager (most mornings) who cared less of how busy the reception to jump in and assist with long waiting guest que, the breakfast was not looked upon for refill, he could literally not be bothered to assist guest or the struggling team members (very sad to see …) just focused on the laptop which was very handy to be distracted Given a choice I would recommend the Moxy but would not stay here again as plenty of other hotels in the centre (just my opinion when it comes to the location and distance). Well done to the team at the desk, fair play

I received a warm and friendly welcome when arriving at this lovely hotel, the staff are very helpful and kind. It is close to all of Edinburgh’s many attractions - reliable taxi services, walking distance or by bus. My room was really good, with all the required facilities, a very comfortable bed and a clean modern bathroom and shower. Breakfast had so many choices fresh, good quality food and drinks, replenished frequently. My stay at the Moxy was a thoroughly pleasant experience.
