We had a wonderful stay. The staff was very welcoming. We arrived early, well before check in time, but our room was ready for us. Although the room was small, it was exceptionally clean and very comfortable - excellent beds and nice, strong shower. Despite what you might read in other comments, a good hairdryer was provided in the room....

In decor, this is much like any other Ibis hotel, of course - clean, comfortable and functional. However, the welcome at this Ibis was like no other that we have received - nothing is too much trouble for the staff. This is good staff training, as it doesn't just apply to one or two members of staff, but to everyone....

Very small rooms and very basic on the extras (for example type of soap for washing hands, hair, body) but overall a great location for walking to key central sights. Looks recently renovated with a hip new style and this helps to present a clean fresh look.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. What a great location, everything in easy walking distance. It is a budget hotel, but is clean, tidy and very welcoming. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would stay here again without a doubt.

What a great welcome from a very good budget hotel. The central situation of this hotel is superb for people wanting to sightsee. Highly recommend in the budget category and from the manager down staff could not have been more helpful

The hotel is in an excellent position for the station and the Royal Mile. The room is quite compact, but very well laid out and comfortable. Many outlets, nice bathroom and comfortable bed. Very nice all round.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh and part of this was due to our experiences at our hotel. The hotel staff were knowledgeable and very friendly. The rooms may be small for some people but they suited our needs as we wanted to spend our time exploring the city not sitting in a hotel room. The location is great...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
