“The staff that felt like family”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

When you "jump the pond," you start off a bit upside down. From the moment I entered Le Monde until the very second I left, EVERY staff member that met me morning or night treated me with sincere kindness. Theft helped me with every detail and got me any help I needed, all with a smile.

Yes, the hotel is cool and "western" in amenities, with old-world charm one finds in cities this age, but it was the people that made me feel ... Home.

Thank you all!

Room Tip: I was in "Moscow" and it had an awesome tub/shower. Each room has it's own them, so pr...

I have to preface this review as I could have a completely different experience had it not been during fringe fest. I had the opportunity to stay in the "Havana" room on the 2nd floor. I wanted an opportunity to stay in Edinburgh to enjoy fringe fest and the royal military tattoo. There were not many hotels left to book and the rest were very expensive. I noticed that Le Monde Hotel was located on George St. which is very close to Edinburgh Waverly station.

The room itself was very beautiful and I would really enjoy seeing all of the 18 themed rooms that the hotel has to offer. The problem I had with the room was that who thought it was a good idea to separate the shower on one side of the room and then have to talk 30+ feet to the toilet/sink area. I'm not sure if anyone thought of this idea but its ridiculous to have to walk out of the shower and all the way over to the sink area. The lighting scheme options were low, medium, and high but not all of the buttons worked. Why can't you just put a simple light switch and that would satisfy everything.

The customer service was average and they did apply a discount due to my complaint about noise until 1:30 AM. The front desk staff were polite and apologetic.

The breakfast was extremely overpriced at 19 GBP for eggs, porridge, and some coffee. The restaurant and bar are very beautifully decorated though.

At the end of the day I would return to the hotel to see the other rooms and not during Fringe fest as it would have a different ambiance to it.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd floor to avoid the noise from nightclub.

Stayed here for two nights in August 2014. Loved the room and bathroom. Very comfortable and very centrally located. No gym or spa services however. Staff was extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations. Really enjoyed the place.

Nice hotel in great central location for eating, shopping and sightseeing. Stayed in "Paris" themed room which was nice. Modern bar and restaurant in house and we didn't have any noise issues either as the room faced onto George Street. Lovely staff on reception and throughout the hotel and would recommend this hote

Decadent rooms & elevated service. We loved our stay in the beautiful Dublin room. The in-house restaurant is beautifully decorated and the food is great. The staff was very accommodating when we needed anything and we had no noise issues.

Stayed in the Cairo suite on 7/16, and the room was phenomenal. Beautiful furniture, massive bathroom, and very modern overall. The multiple levels of dimming on the light controls took a couple of minutes to figure out, but were a very cool touch. The only complaint is that this particular suite has a window onto the alley to the north, directly over the Why Not nightclub. We were also right next to a fire stair that several groups were using to go between their rooms and the club. A bottle of wine with dinner and a set of earplugs solved the problem for us, but might bother others. The restaurant was also excellent, though service was somewhat slow, as we were seated in the back between two hen parties.

Room Tip: Rooms that look out onto the north alley may be noisy.
