Ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile
Ranked #59 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 November 2012

The Ibis Edinburg is ideal for those who want the safety and surety of a 'chain' hotel, the location is excellent with the hotel being just off the Royal Mile, right next to the heart of the city.

The Hotel is within walking distance of the key monuments of this beautiful port town and practically in the middle of the famed Royal Mile. Equidistant from the Edinburgh castle and the parliament house, this hotel is close to most of the places of interest to eat and drinking. In fact most of the pub crawls start a mere 100ft away from the hotel.

All the tours to Inverness and the scenic parts of Edinburgh start from the four or five locations within 5 minutes from this hotel and with loads of tescos and other small chemist shops close by it is very convenient.

It is a no frill hotel with the rooms beings small but functional. The view is nothing to write home about but the location more than compensates for the lack of views.

The breakfast is sumptuous and comes true to the expectations from an Ibis hotel. Sausages, Eggs, baked beans, yoghurts, milk, fresh fruits, fresh juices, cereals etc. make the breakfast a healthy yet fulifilling option.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Look at rooms on the higher floors as the view is much better and the noise is much lesser.

Good hotel in the centre of the city. Nice clean room, even a big one. Nice and tasty breakfast. Good bar to start off in the evening before diner somewhere down town. Ibis has nothing fancy but everything you need for a city visit. The Ibis people are very kind and helpful. Enjoy Edinburgh!

A good value 'chain' hotel, excellently placed just off the Royal Mile, within walking distance of most of the sights. Plenty of places to eat and drink within the immediate area. Clean and just what you'd expect of an Ibis. Not too many frills, but very comfy bed and a decent breakfast for the price. If you wanted to be very picky you could say the bathroom was a little on the small side, and the window looked out onto a blank wall, but this didn't spoil my stay. Recommended.

My wife and myself spent a weekend in Edinburgh (for the rugby match against the All Blacks) and went to the Ibis Edinburgh Centre for the second time in a couple of years.
The location is amazing since you are about forty steps from the Royal Mile and within walking distance from the Waverley Bridge and Station where you are likely to end up if you arrive there by train or plane.
This time the room we had was not as good as the first time: a little smaller (not a problem for such a short stay), the bathroom looked a little old, and the bedsheets were not pristine (a large number of small spots in a region around the middle of the bed). All in all not huge problems or setbacks but something, in my opinion, that could be easily taken care of with not too much effort (especially the bedsheets bit) increasing at the same time the customer satisfaction

The Hotel has an excellent location for the old town. Everything is a walkable distance. Princess street is 10 minutes walk which where the shops are there.
The Check in wasn't that good. Waited for approximate 35 minutes to check if our rooms ready although we arrived at 2:15 PM.
My double room wasn't has a view. Only concrete blocks. The room was very small and a very tiny place to walk through. On the opposite side, the twin room has a generous space and excellent view to the main street.
The beds are very comfortable and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
Totally, it was a good stay.

Room Tip: twin rooms on the street are big and having a good view.
