We stayed at this hotel in the last week of August, 2014.

It is very well positioned, close to the city centre and train station. There are also plenty of buses that can take you in the hotel proximity.

I personaly have enjoyed the hotel's breakfast. It is not extremely diverse but everybody can find something that suites his or hers preferences.

The rooms are clean and big enough for two persons. I found them to be a little bit noisy because of the thin walls but it is not something unbearable.

We haven't experienced its restaurant or bar so I can't say anything about that.

Anyway, if you are in Edinburgh as a tourist for the first time, this IBIS might be all that you need.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that have a window facing the interior courtyard. I had room 911 and it was quiet enou...

Thank you again ,and we hope to seeing you back very soon.

Great location for the ed fringe being right in the heart of the city. Hotel filled with amenities. Room kind of small, but it was a wonderful room. Layout a little frustrating. Trip of a lifetime. Thank you

Very comfortable stay, easy walk to the Royal Mile and all the sights. Supermarket right next door. If you arrive by train don't walk straight towards the hotel as it involves a lot of stairs. Go the other way inside the station and take the lift to get up to the street level first and then walk back at street level.

The Ibis was great. We stayed during the August festival season so it was a bit more expensive than normal, but still a pretty good value. It is just a few blocks from the Royal Mile and a short walk from most of the main attractions.Definitely recommended. A few points taken off because it was difficult to find food at night. They have a small restaurant, but the service was too slow if you are in a hurry. Also make sure you go to the right Ibis, there is another one a few blocks away from it.

The hotel is clean and in a great location. For the money you can't pick a better location. The front desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are average but the bathrooms are under-average plastic portable shells. Finally phone calls from the hotel are outrageous (above what is normally outrageous) even in an emergency.

Rooms and breakfast followed Ibis standards - all very very good with no surprises! But Ibis Edinburgh South Bridge real asset was the staff - all very very friendly and helpful, from Central desk to bar! Location is also very good, just few minutes (or seconds!) walk from Royal Mile

We stayed for two nights last week and have no complaints with this property. The rooms are not very large (standard double) but reasonable for Europe and they are very clean with comfortable beds. The decor is very modern so if you're looking for a more classic look, you won't get it here.

We had a room that faced a cut into the building so there was another face of the hotel about 30 feet across from us. While there was no view it made up for it with lack of street noise as there was none.

This hotel has one of the earliest check in times I've seen at 12 noon and that worked out well for us as we arrived mid-morning and they had a room available for us already. If you do need to drop off your bags it is a 2 GPB charge per bag (it may be free if it's for just a couple hours or less).

The property is only two blocks from the Royal Mile, three blocks from the Waverly Station, and easily within walking distance of all the major sites, Grass Market area, and plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs nearby.

Overall, for the location and comfort, it's a great value for the money.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing South Bridge are presumably quieter.
