“"We will be back"!”
Reviewed 14 May 2009

"Absolutely amazing place with great staff, rooms and nightclub"!
We stayed in the Dublin themed room with VIP access to the club, which is great because you enter the club via a VIP lift! The last impression you get from a hotel is usually a bad breakfast but I can honestly say it was the best hotel breakfast ever! Their was even a duty manager serving the breakfast who was on duty the previous night!

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Le Monde as part of my birthday celebration last year. The Hotel is located on George Street very close to all the local attractions and the Castle being a leisurely 30 mins walk away. All the rooms are themed which meant over the two nights I stayed in Edinburgh, Miami and Rio!

The staff were nice from the off – my gf having told them it was my birthday we were given complimentary drinks on out arrival and VIP tickets to the club meaning free entry, complementary drinks and an introduction to the manager who severed us personally all night (which they even replaced after I lost them in the move of rooms).

As part of the perk of staying at the hotel we received discounted food and drink in the two restaurants and bars (which I believe are very popular with the locals) – well worth bringing your student cards as further discounts on food and drink are available. The breakfast was not included in the room price we paid (so I believe) however it was well worth the extra money.

All in all it was a great stay and I would definitely go back.

A word to the wise if you can ask to be at the rear of the hotel and on the upper floors, the night club below the hotel kicks out after 2am and Monday is the loudest student night!

After reading countless hotel reviews on Tripadvisor for Edinburgh, I learned of Le Monde. It was an excellent hotel choice. Within easy walking distance to train station, great over-all location, large sized, interesting designed rooms, helpful staff. The breakfasts included were a special bonus as one could simply select from their entire menu. Room internet included...We stayed in the Tokoyo and Atlantis rooms... Simply amazing.. Thanks so much to all the tripadvisors who helped me plan this trip...

We got a deal for le monde off it's website where you pay £100 on food and drink and the room is free on a sunday night.The rooms are all different cities of the world and are decorated beautifully,the room we had was marrakech and our friends had new york.We managed to spend the £200 between us no bother at dinner which was good but not excellent.We then hired a nintendo wii for £10 and had a good evening playing it till the small hours!

My girlfriend and I have just spent 2 nights - a Friday and a Saturday - at Le Monde hotel in Edinburgh and loved every minute of it.

Every room is themed like a city and we were given the Beijing room, which is classed as a 'Superior' room (the cheaper of the 3 room classes available). The room was very spacious with a lovely window seat and everything was perfect - everything was clean as you would expect but there was a touch of class about the place. The room was beautifully lit and decorated, and included a safe, plasma screen tv with sky sports, and a reasonably priced mini-bar

Above the bed there was a long horizontal window through to the shower room, but if you're not so keen on that there is a wee cord beside the bath that you can pull and make the glass frosted. The bath was lovely and big and included a rainfall shower. It really was luxury

The hotel has a very busy, public bar/restaurant/club attached, though we never heard any noise in our room from the club, even though we were there over a weekend and when we arrived back at the hotel for a drink (around midnight) the queue outside was huge and pretty noisy.

The staff were all very friendly and attentive and I couldnt speak highly enough of them. They catered for everything and were happy to give advice regarding directions, local attractions etc.

One word of advice if you are driving - the hotel does not have car parking and on-street parking near the hotel costs £2 per hour and the maximum wait is 3 hours. Your best bet is to drive 5 minutes to the St James' shopping centre car park which was £14 for 24 hours

We both really enjoyed our time in Le Monde and even though it was rather pricey it was worth the money. We'll definitely be back

We stayed at Le Monde at the beginning of December for 3 nights. I loved the hotel. The room we had (Havana) was lovely - we couldnt fault it at all. Our friends stayed next door (Rio de Janero) and they had some noise at night from the night club but we only heard the music very faintly. Our friends told reception that they could hear the music and they were moved to another room very quickly and efficiently. Breakfast was brilliant and the bar downstairs was great. A fantastic short break and ideally situated in the centre of Edinburgh.

Stayed at Le Monde for our wedding anniversary in December 2008, when we arrived everything looked fantastic, the lighting in the lifts, trouble free check-in all great, we were given the key to the New York suite and away we went.

I had asked the hotel to place flowers and champagne into the room for us and we were greated with, champagne on ice and a lovely bouqet of flowers. On initial views the room was amazing, open brick walls huge seating area, fantastic feature light, huge plasma screen and raised opaque glass divisions into the bathroom. In the bathroom the floor was heated, double shower with lcd tv in the middle and range of nice products.

So far so good, I made a coffee on the swanky machine and when I poured the milkk from the fridge out it popped, the milk that is or cheese as it had turned too!!! The fridge was broken so everything was warm, oh the safe was broken too with the door hanging off, I went to report this to reception when I found that the front door to the room wouldn't shut! unless you slammed it shaking everything in the corridor, they said they would sort it (they never did). So we have a room with no safe, no fridge and a door that doesn't shut properly, then the feature light went out, then one of the bedside lights went out, then the light on the writing table went out!!!!! It's pretty dark with all these lights out, they fixed one of them!!!!

The only thing to do was to go in the shower, two heads two people shared shower.......except one of the showers only worked on cold, freezing cold.......so no shared shower, ok.

The bed was really nice and comfortable, untill around 1am when the que for the nightclub next door is filling into the alley at the side of these rooms, oh and the bass from both this club and the one underneath the hotel then at 3am they kick everyone out into the alley so all the screaming and shouting starts!!!!!

OK not all bad the good things, welcome cocktails, fantastic you choose anything from the menu so we did, a meal in Paris, this was really good and the service was excellent, even with the christmas parties we were not left waiting for anything. The location of the hotel is great a fantastic base from which to explore Edinburgh.

So at the end of our 2 night stay we did let the receptionist know of the problems and she reduced our £490 bill by £50, better than nothing but a little dissapointing as it was a special occasion, as the hotel is privately owned I would expect the owner to have a look around the rooms and see for themselves that you don't have to look to far to see a real drop in standards, it is true not to judge a book by it's cover, when you open it up most of the pages were torn or missing.
