Score from 1595 reviews Very good
near to the centre staff were very friendly
noisy doors banaging, minor grip as we were in a room by a fire door, woken up very early morning. I found the dining room and breakfast a little odd, no staff around, clear your own tables etc. Food was ok.
location just off Royal mile so close for shops, attractions, eating etc very clean, rooms well laid out and a decent size. good bathroom. really friendly and helpful staff. good buffet breakfast - everything available.
bed slightly too soft for me.
Location was probably the best thing as i had a wedding very close by and a lot of other wedding guests were also walking distance away which was great for meeting up. I also left my licence which was posted on to me so staff were great. All round it was a great weekend.
Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and good to the children. Hotel convenient as we arrived late by train and could walk to all tourist spots and up Arthur's Seat easily! Beds very comfortable , food good and whole experience great value for money.
fantastic hotel to stay, good location staff excellant,enjoyed breakfast plenty choice. Have tried to book for birthday in December but fully booked will be back
no complaints at all
Pleasant staff, good location.
There is nothing to say.
Front desk staff was exceptional!!
Poor internet reception
Usual Holiday Inn Express presentation, high standard of comfort and facilities, use as a base, not an experience in itself
Although car parking is available at a local NCP car park, this is an extra expense. The Travelodge next door had onsite car parking!
The young German Receptionist was fantastic- extremely helpful. Room smashing, breakfast excellent, very enjoyable stay. A wee bit of a hike up nearby street to get to royal mile but keeps you fit!
Quite noisy outside at night but it is a city center hotel. We had to leave window open as room was too hot even with heating switched off!
The staff were very helpful. The hotel was very quiet and the room clean and comfortable.
The breakfast was not particularly inspiring.
Generally it's a good hotel at which to stay. I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Had two short stays in Sept./Oct. 2012, and it was my first choice for my recent visit. It would be my first choice for another visit.
Can't think of anything.
Good staff, nice arrangement, readiness before you checkin
Wi-Fi speed was little low, rest all is good
Very well located near St. Giles cathedrale and Nice shops and buildings of the Royal Mile
Our room on the first floor was not well isolated. We could hear strange crackings on the ceiling. Perhaps due to the vicinity of ghostly underground in Blair street .......???!!
All staff helpful and friendly.
Restricted snack bar menu. Elderly mother not interested in pizza, chilli con carne or tikka masala
Location of hotel excellent, right in the heart of edinburgh. Plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby at the royal mile. Accomodation basic but very clean.
Breakfast was a bit chaotic, too many people trying to choose breakfast within small kitchen area. No bacon included with hot breakfast options, which i found rather odd. Staff could have assisted guests more at this time. Lot of crockery broken during this time, as a result of dissaray.
the location of the hotel, small but hidden, close to Royal mile and surroundings. Friendly staff at reception. Good breakfast.
Noise of the street from room, maybe invest in Double grazing?
The staff was very helpful and courteous. The hotel was close to the sites.
The bed seemed extremely hard. After walking around all day, I wanted to get a good night's sleep. Instead I tossed and turned because of my lower was tight.
Clean, friendly and central
Breakfast buffet layout was daft causing huge bottlenecks around the hot food
Room was clean, spacious, quiet; staff all sounded as if they had been trained to be nice but they had been trained well so no complaints. Excellent value for money.
Breakfast area a wee bit crowded but hardly a problem.
Great location in The Old Town. Attractions, restaurants/pubs and shopping is just a walk away. Nice and helpful staff. Clean rooms and good security. Great offer for families, because children sleeps for free in parent's room.
We would have appreciated a little more healthy breakfast, including vegetables and dark bread.
The staff were uniformly obliging.
Friendly professional staff. Excellent room, facilities, location and staff. Will certainly be visiting again.
Location Room facilities Cleanliness Staff
Coffee: horrible, but the only blot for me.
Great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay!
