Adequate, clean but very just functional. Good location only redeeming factor.

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Jane Friends - 14/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Rooms very small and functional but none of the normal niceties of a hotel stay. The beds were not comfortable and the pillows were thin and hard. I was glad I was not stopping for more than two days and would not look forward to staying again. It was clean and the staff were helpful however. I would only use it again as a last resort.

fringe Fantastic

Excellent location for Edinburgh Fringe Venues

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Sharon S. Couples - 14/08/2019 AccorHotels review

The room was clean and comfortable, if a tad small. The staff were friendly and the buffet breakfast offered a variety of food to cater for all tastes. There was no welcome drink offered this year, as a reward for booking directly with Accor. That was a shame because it costs very little but is a nice touch and was much appreciated by us last year.

Dear Sharon, Thank you for your comments regarding your stay at the ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile - Hunter Square (new rooms). It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am however sorry to hear we missed your anniversary, we try to always make something special for our guest when there is a special occasion. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope to host you again in our Hotel, Sincerely, Marie Fargier.

A hot box akin to a jail cell

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Julie R. Solo - 13/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Nice staff...terrible coffee but good breakfast. The room was a hot box and as there was only one high up window it was like being in a jail cell... the hotel is well located and very near the railway station. The welcome drink was very much appreciated.

Great stay

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Ugylid13 Couples - 13/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Rooms clean and adequately provisioned for a short stay. Had cappuccino in the bar 1st night which was terrible. 2nd night I tried again with a different staff member and it was delicious. Conclusion - nothing wrong with the machinery or materials but somebody needs a bit more coffee making training.

Dear Guy, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile - Hunter Square. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our hotel and your stay here with us, I am sorry to hear about your first coffee not turning out for you, I will bring this up to management and be sure our staff is more competent when making coffees!

The rooms were OK and the staff very friendly. The breakfast was excellant. The only complaint I have id that there was no air con in the rooms. It was very hot which made the stay uncomfortable.

Christine R. Couples - 10/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Staff friendly. Good position but very noisy - the Fringe Festival was on, which I didn’t know about at time of booking. Room and bathroom small but adequate. Breakfast good.
