Reviewed 13 July 2014

Definitely recommend staying in this hotel in Edinburgh, it's very central to all tourist attractions and very close to the Edinburgh Bus Station, train station, and tourist information center. It's brand new and beautifully decorated with all sorts of Scottish-themed things - it's very stylish. It was only 4 days old when we stayed there. Free wifi and breakfast is included in the rate. The breakfast was quite nice as well, with a wide selection of cereals, fruits, and pastries. Staff was very friendly and helpful, they let us check in before check in time. If you pre-book online you also get a very generous discount. It ended up being cheaper than staying in some of the central hostels in the city centre, so that is saying a lot. I would definitely consider coming back.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. It's just across St Andrew's Square from the tram stop, and in a renovated Bank of Scotland building. The hotel is very new and clean. My room was really very small. It was a double room but absolutely not big enough for two people. There was hardly room around the bed to get to the coffee making facilities (I had to climb over the bed) and although there was a chair, you couldn't actually pull it out to sit on it because the room was so tiny. I found the air conditioning a little noisy for a new hotel.

Breakfast was continental and pleasant. The one hot option was the only item that varies, so it would get repetitive if staying a few days. The plastic wrapped long life portion cheeses were terrible (like you get on flights).

Staff were very friendly and exceedingly helpful. Overall, the hotel seemed poor value for money for what it was (tiny room), but Edinburgh is pricey and there is a distinct lack of mid priced hotels.

Dear DesertVampire,
Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our property, your comments are very much valued. I am pleased that you found the location convenient with an impressive outlook and friendly staff. Our commitment to investing in our property, even though brand new, will continue with new chairs better adapted to every room type. We recognise that these very few smaller rooms we have can be difficult for some guests and would be happy to allocate a more suitable room upon request. Concerning the pleasant breakfast you had, please be informed that we do alternate during the week some hot pastries and other varieties such as smoked salmon, haggis balls, etc... I do regret that some aspects of your stay failed to meet your personal expectations in terms of value for money. I do hope that on balance you will consider returning to the ibis Styles Edinburgh Centre St Andrew Square and would ask that you contact me directly on such occasion if I can be of any assistance in arranging your stay.
Kindest regards.

I had such a lovely stay here. The hotel is brand new at the very heart of Edinburgh! Very stylish and cosy. The rooms are very modern and staff is just lovely especially Megan who checked me in with my boyfriend smoothly, explaining all the details about the hotel. I had very nice buffet breakfest in the morning which was included in the rate. Thank you for the hospitality and wish you all the best for this wee hotel. I will definitely be coming back.

Kind Regards,
Kristina

The hotel is brand new, and located right in the heart of Edinburgh. Location-wise it's perfect (just a block from Princes street and next to the tram stop). The rooms are a bit small, but comfortable enough. Very comfortable beds with free wifi. Breakfast was very varied.

Dear Juli99,
Thank you so much for your taking the time to write such a complimentary review following your stay at our unique and brand new opened Ibis Styles Edinburgh Centre St Andrew Square.
Yes, our location is fantastic. In the heart of the New Town on the beautiful St Andrew Square, just a very short walk to Princess street and around the corner of George street, famous for its lively bars, clubs and restaurants. We offer a wide variety of rooms, varying in size, aspect and decoration which can better suit our guests preferences. Our commitment is to offer the best sleeping experience giving our clients "sweet dreams" and so we are delighted that you enjoyed our comfortable bedding "Sweet Bed by iBIS". I am also very glad you appreciated our blistering free wi-fi with a cap of 100 megas offered to our guests. We look forward to another opportunity to host you at our property, and once again, thank you for your positive comments!
Kind regards.

We stayed here for two nights on a short holiday in Edinburgh. The hotel is brand new, very clean and lovely. The location makes it perfect as a base for exploring the city. All the staff we came into contact with were very friendly.

Breakfast had mostly cold options (cereals, fruit, bread and pastries) plus tea and coffee. It was well stocked and there were plenty of tables. A hot vegetarian option would have been nice-there were hot sausage rolls for the meat eaters. :)

The only slightly annoying thing is that there were no hand towels in the bathroom.

Would definitely stay again.

Having booked with Ibis in the past I get the 'promotion' emails and quite impressed to be told I can get 40% off if I book by the 27th June.
Having checked the Hotel has the '40%' discount offer and book up the rooms as wanted for 3 night early August, I couldn't help think the room rate was rather high for a 40% discount!
Eventually I called the help line to find out why the price wasn't being reduced and I am told the hotel had a few rooms at this offer rate and they are all gone!
I wouldn't have minded so much if they had clearly stated the discount was not available but no, they are quite happy to dupe you into booking rooms at the standard rates!!!
Needles to say, I won't be staying here after all......

Dear JackdeLadd,
I do regret that some aspects of our up to -40% "Super Sales" offer reserved to our Le Club by Accor hotels loyalty members failed to meet your personal expectations.
As you may understand the exclusive offer could only be reserved for a limited number of rooms during a high period of activity in Edinburgh due to the very famous Fringe Festival.
Overall our "Super Sales" have been an enormous success as many of our more than 14 million loyalty members have benefited of exclusive discounts.
I do understand your disappointment for not having found any more availability at those very special conditions on that specific period and I would welcome the opportunity to discuss your experience personally by contacting me directly on our e-mail address H9058@accor.com, at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely yours.
