They've got a great location and an obvious tour group captive market. Breakfast was good. Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner. Free wifi would have been a plus.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel as part of a tour. Our hotel room was robbed our first night there. Evidently, the thieves were able to break in without forced entry and without using the electronic card key system. Security cameras within the hotel were "dummy cameras" except for the camera at the front door. Three other rooms were broken into that night as well. Hotel said they were not liable for our losses because they were not neglient. In my opinion, if someone can break into a hotel room without forced entry by using a plastic door hanger to jiggle the door latch, the rooms are not secure. And there was no safe in the room, and no mention of a safe at the front desk. Even after the robbery, we were not given the option of the use of a hotel safe. The hotel staff was helpful, but the IBIS corporate office is a joke. Will never stay at an Accor property again.

Booked on-line, arrived Edinburgh the 1st Friday in September 2011. Staff very helpful an friendly, efficient check-in (check-out), room small, but functional. Spent day touring the 'Royal Mile' and GrassMarket areas. Came back exhausted the day after long flight from Canada and touring Glasgow. Kids in the square across from hotel lobby partied till nearly 5:00AM...hard to get a good night's sleep! Lounge staff VERY accommodating in providing ice for our 'rum and cokes'!

Over-all, a very nice stay. Would recommend the IBIS as a pleasant 'budget hotel', well located, in Eburgh! p&j

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of hotel if possible (away from the 'square' across from the front...

Had a group of 34 and every one of them were extremely happy with every aspect of this hotel. The rooms were very clean and quiet, the staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was plentiful, and the loction was absolutely wonderful for three days of exploring the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Am already planning a return trip to both!

the simplicity of an ibis, but very clean and in a perfect location. A few meters from the Royal Mile, near the Castle, the train station.
Service reception a bit clumsy, but with the efficiency of all time.

Room Tip: Our room was on the sixth floor, quiet, with good views. But I think if they have rooms facing the s...
