If you are looking for a modern, centrally located budget hotel this is the one for you! It was just excellent. Comfortable room and it seemed brand new as if the bathroom had never been used and the bed had never been slept in! Great location, lovely friendly staff.

Very impressed by the Ibis! Centrally located (although like many others, ended up in the Ibis Royal Mile as this is the first Ibis Hotel one comes across walking up from Waverley), with clean modern rooms, a good shower, comfortable bed and a great breakfast. We were only staying one night but one could not really ask for more for a short stay, and the rates represent excellent value. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect location near the train/bus station, two supermarkets near the hotel. When we booked it said that there would be room safe, but we couldn't find any. Larger room than previously Ibis we stayed at. Way to thick pillows, ended up using a towel as pillow. Didn't eat the breakfast at the hotel. We had an OK experience.

Dear DIF1891,

Thank you very much for taking the time in sharing your experience with us. I am glad you have enjoyed our prime location, as we are very lucky to be just a few minutes walk from the famous Royal Mile. This is with disapointment I am reading the comfort of our bed was not up to your expectations. In order to meet all our customer's needs, we do have more pillows option available at the reception anytime along with a safe service. Our team is happy to help 24/7 and try to make everyone's stay hassle-free. We hope to seeing you back to Edinburgh very soon!

The hotel is new and offers very good services. If you don't want to have your breakfast in the hotel, you also can count on Costa Cafe in the same building. An excelent choice in Edinburgh with balanced price.

Just next to Royal mile, this modern hotel provides all the necessary comforts. The rooms are very good, clean and warm. The staff at the service desk are more than helpful. Central to pretty much everything. Right in the heart of old town, the new town, the train and bus stations, tram stop all are a short stroll away.

Was here for 5 nights on a theatre/shopping break (very close to the Festival Theatre). It was very comfortable, bright & clean. I was particularly struck by the way unnecessary frills were omitted but they didn't stint on the rest (the coffee at breakfast will stick in my mind for a long time, as will the fresh rolls). The room was bigger than I expected; the bed massively comfortable; the TV well placed & big enough to see well. I love the pod-type shower/loo unit with great lighting. The free wifi worked well & for a small fee you could get a faster connection, presumably if you want to watch video online--I didn't bother. I ate in the restaurant before the theatre each night & was served promptly by very pleasant staff. The lifts were very fast & keycard controlled for security. The staff were stupendous, friendly, organised, & helpful. All in all, I had a great stay & will stay again on my next theatre trip. One warning, do be sure, if taking a taxi to say it is the NEW Ibis on South Bridge; I had one driver who hadn't heard it had opened & turned onto the street for the other Ibis, which is one way so he couldn't get back. Its only a 100 metres or so away but if you had a lot of baggage it could be a pain walking.

Room Tip: Entrance to the hotel lobby is from South Bridge & is therefore on the FOURTH floor. If you want...

Got off of our train from Glasgow and pretty easily walked to the hotel, little bit of a challenge with luggage but definitely doable. Comfortable beds, friendly staff, and centrally located. This room was a little more spacious than the typical rooms I saw across Ireland and Scotland. Weird soap dispenser in the bathroom, thankfully I brought my own. Nice, clean, modern place to stay.
