“Pleasant surprise - modern in an old city”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 via mobile

Great location in the city, with clean accessible rooms. The breakfast buffet was really good too. The staff was very helpful and attentive. I was traveling with 2 seniors and two tweens and all of us were satisfied in having our needs met.

Having read a lot of reviews from Trip Advisor, I was curious to see how this hotel was in reality.
My thought is that is a great value, the location is perfect for sightseeing and walking around. We had experienced an Ibis before in Sydney Australia a while back, which was simply wonderful. This property did not disappoint, other than Front Desk coverage was spotty at times, and some of that staff could have used a tad more customer focus training at times.

The room was small, but worked well for the two of us. The bed was comfortable, the TV worked well, the bathroom, while tiny, certainly functioned well. If you are looking for a large room with large furniture, this is not where you want to be. If you are satisfied with a pleasant, clean room in a mostly well run hotel, which offers reasonably priced food and beverage in Edinburgh, this should work very well for you.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor in one of the larger rooms with at least 3 electrical outlets.

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...

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.
