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.

Terrible hotel great location chk in not until 3pm was given a basement room with a view of a brick wall the room was freezing cold and felt damp the whole hotel apart from reception had a musty moldy smell was given a blow heater and told there's no more rooms available since we waited in the bar from 1pm we thought it better to take the heater and stay had a very cold night even with heater on got up looking forward to a good breakfast but no it was a very poor cold continental breakfast find your seat get your own coffee I have never seen such a cheap breakfast put out for guests and the staff were no help atall i asked any chance of 2 fried eggs to put on some toast was told no its basic of all basics even the boiled eggs were cold I think the good reviews we've read must be written by the staff who sit on the barely recognisable reception messing about on a lap top horrible stay

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We're glad to hear you appreciated our central location, which indeed provides easy access to many of Edinburgh's attractions and amenities. We regret to hear about your dissatisfaction with the room allocation and the temperature during your stay, our check-in is advertised from 3:00 pm on every website, regardless of if the guest books the room on the same day, as you did. The heating in your room was working fine, however it does take 20-30 minutes to heat the room up, as we don't set temperatures, due to basic sustainability efforts, which I am sure you would understand. While some of our rooms are cosy due to the unique nature of our historic building, we strive to provide a comfortable experience for all our guests. We apologise if the breakfast did not meet your expectations. Our continental breakfast is designed to offer a variety of choices, including Scottish specialties, and we're sorry if it fell short for you on this occasion, again we advertise continental breakfast on every website, so really it shouldn't come as surprise to you. Kind regards. Zoltan Sustainability and Assistant General Manager

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed in this hotel for two weeks in August during the fringe and we had stayed here also during our several earlier visits to Edinburgh. I can confidently say this is the best place to stay when in Edinburgh. The location is awesome: a stone throw away from Princess street Shopping but a quieter location being away from the crowds. It’s also close to the St. James Quarters Mall and Multrees Walk High Street Shops. The Andrew’s Square bus stop is right across. It’s the starting point for the hop-on and hop-off sightseeing buses and some intercity buses. The stop for the Skylink buses to Edinburgh Airport is just a block away. Edinburgh Bus Station is just two blocks away roughly. The Tram station is just across the St. Andrew’s Park in front of the hotel. The park also acts as a good place to hang around especially in the summers. There is also a Costa in there. Some excellent eating places are within less than two minutes of walk. This includes Dishoom the best Indian restaurant in Edinburgh and Bread Street Kitchen (a Gordon Ramsay restaurant). The rooms are pleasantly furbished and spacious enough (depending on the room type one chooses). The breakfast Buffett is pretty decent just that it never changes. So this becomes a bit boring for visitors who are staying for longer duration. The staff all across are extremely helpful, courteous and customer focused. I would especially like to call out and thank Samantha and Tatiana on front desk for all their support throughout our stay. They are always ready to walk some extra miles that can deliver customer happiness. And that’s the reason this hotel has almost become our permanent abode whenever we visit Edinburgh

Ibis Styles Edinburgh has a great location adjacent to St Andrews Square, from which all the major city locations are easy to get to by walking. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. When I arrived, I was offered a small bottle of Scotch Whisky. I declined and told them that I didn't drink alcohol. To my surprise, one of the ladies went out, then returned and gave me a tin of Edinburgh Shortbread flavoured biscuits 😀 😋 Talk about hospitality! Brilliant. Then there's the complimentary breakfast, which I always looked forward to. Highly recommended 👌

Great location, clean, super friendly and helpful staff and a delish breakfast! Easy to checkin and checkout, helped us with an early morning wake up call and booking of the taxi. Also helped us dropping our bags and luckily checking us in a couple hours before check in time.

Excellent bar service. Was in for a cocktail or two on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Trainee Alex was fantastic. Cheery, charming and competent at making some very lovely drinks. He made Edinburgh a much more cheerful place. The bar was nice with funky colors and comfortable seating but Alex was the star turn

This has to be a 5 star review. We checked in and found that the room we were given was not what we expected for £730 for a two night stay. We went down to the bar and explained to one of the lovely reception staff that we werent really happy. We were given another room with no fuss at all. The room we were then put into ( 106 ) was perfect. The view was amazing through the huge bay window, the bed was very comfortable and the pillows the same. The bathroom, although no bath had a huge wet room with rainfall shower and another shower to reach everwhere else. The room was spotless with nothing out of place. There was nothing missing in this large room. Great view, comfortable bed and pillows, several lights to choose from, table and comfortable chairs for coffee by the windows. Breakfast was downstairs in the bar area which was standard continental, great choice of pastries, hams, cheese, porridge, cerial, coffee, juices etc We will definately be back. Staff are a ten, location is a 10 and accomodation is a 10.

Comfortable bed, clean bathroom, good breakfast. Too bad there was a valve in the room (I guess it was the heating) that made a bit of noise and walls are super thin, I could hear someone coughing behind my back - I hope they got better at least!!

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share feedback regarding your recent visit. We're delighted to hear that our central location provided you with the convenience you needed and that our comfy Ibis Sweet beds, clean bathrooms, and hearty Continental breakfast added to the enjoyment of your stay. It's a joy to know that these aspects met your expectations. However, we note your comments regarding the noise from the heating valve and from other guests. Our double-glazed windows and soundproofed rooms are designed to minimise noise, and we regret if this was not sufficient in your case. We appreciate your understanding that as a historic building converted to a hotel, some structural elements might contribute to the auditory experience. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards,
