I did quite a bit of research before booking a hotel for our Edinburgh trip. We finally chose the Ibis South Bridge due to the central location and the fact that we got the room for £110 pounds a night, which was relatively inexpensive compared to other centrally located hotels with a decent standard. In the end, we did not regret our choice.
We were greeted by a friendly woman at the reception when we arrived and was given a room on the 7th floor. The room was by no means large, but I big enough for our needs. The bathroom was good and contained a spacious shower cabinet with a nice shower in it - a relief after having had my share of tiny shower cabinets. After having read several comments here saying that the the windows could not be opened I was happy to see that this was no longer the case. We preferred to keep the window mostly shut at night, though, due to some amount of noise from outside.
Our room rate did not include breakfast, but we had breakfast at the hotel the first morning. The breakfast was decent enough, and the breakfast room was quite nice, but also quite small for such a large hotel.
We didn't have that much contact with the hotel staff, but when we did they were always smiling and helpful. The only minus was when my wife asked for a shower cap and they responded "Sorry, we don't do those". I think this is the first hotel I've visited that don't have shower caps in the bathroom. :)
I will definately consider this hotel if I'm going to Edinburgh again.
