I stayed here just the day after they opened so it was very quiet, for the size of the property the ground floor area is small and would not like to see it when the hotel is full. Despite the hotel being empty I was given the last room on the 9th floor!. Room was nice with everything you need, like others have commented the bathroom is a bit strange and reminds me of being on a cruise ship. I had a look at the bar and restaurant area which is nice but serves a very limited menu, breakfast again was ok as was quiet however again could be a bit crazy if the hotel was busy. There is a card on the bed for a "sleep app" which instructs you to plug your phone in beside the bed .... no plug by bed !!
All the staff were very pleasant and location is good to see all the sights of Edinburgh.

I stayed here for 3 nights shortly after it opened. As with all Ibis/Accorhotels chain, it is like sleeping in Ikea.

The staff were friendly and helpful (it is Edinburgh, after all!) and the accommodation was fine, as one expects from Ibis. Comfortable beds, basic shower/toilet "pod", air-con, and the usual coffee and TV facilities. Breakfast was good and has long service; evening meal choice a bit limited, but there are plenty of nearby restaurants. (Worth a walk up to Tajore South Indian Restaurant in Clerk St for something a bit different but basic.) Noon check-out, so can do things in the morning before leaving.

As it had just opened, there were few people staying. With ca 250 double/twin rooms, it may be hectic at the height of the festival.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor - some of the views are good. Avoid any rooms overlooking South Brid...

Myself and several colleagues from overseas spent the last few days at the hotel. The facilities, breakfast and the location were excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend it.
