Common areas were too warm, but the hotel was awesome otherwise.
Location and friendliness of staff Insufficient storage for clothes. Bathroom door would not remain open to air out after a shower. Heating/Cooling unit did not work. TV operation was tied to placing key card in slot, remote did not turn on unit--inconvenient. More focused on style.
Convenient to attractions Uncertain where to park to unload. Could use some signage.
Location was awesome!! Directly across from the train and minutes from the Royal Mile! The rooms were very clean and modern. The a/c was not working and it was warm during the day. But the nights were nice.
The location was fantastic. We arrived by train and the hotel was right across the street from Waverly Station. Within easy walking distance of the Royal Mile. The hotel was new and everything seemed to be very efficient. Staff was very friendly. Not much.
Great location. Clean . Comfortable bed. Noisy downtown location.
Super beliggenhed på the Royal mile i gå afstand til alt. Hotellet fremstod pænt og rent.Personalet var utroligt venligt og hjælpsomt.Morgenmaden er dog lidt dyr.Man bør lade bilen stå ved hotellet da trafikken i centrum kan være meget tæt og tidskrævende.
Det ligger meget central på Royal Mile og tæt på Centralstationen. Og man får en skriftlig undskyld for evakuering af hotellet om natten grundet falsk brandalarm. Rigtig god morgenmadsbuffet.
Perfekt beliggenhed og helt igennem velfungerende hotel
Det var utrolige venlige mennsker som jobbet der der var pent på rommet,og på hele hotellet vi var 8 damer som er fornøyd,og beliggenheten var midt i bliken. Var overrasket over man trak 5000 kr av kreditkortet for vi 4 personer som stod på rommene da vi ankom mye penge for sikkerhet man burde ha skrevet noget om det på forhånd.
Personalet i receptionen var meget elskværdige og hjælpsomme og gjorde der absolut bedste for at hjælpe gæsterne. Min hustru og jeg boede på dobbeltværelse af en fin standard og værelset var rummeligt og ikke så sammmenpresset som man af og til ser på andre hoteller. Ja, det virkede uhensigtsmæssigt at hotellets yderdør til gaden stod åben så at sige i alle døgnets 24 timer. Da vejret var pivende koldt og til tider særdeles stormende betød det at receptionspersonalet var blåfrossen og havde stærke forkølelsessymptomer. Vi er bestemt ikke sarte, men det havde klædt hotellet at tage sig bedre af sine ansattes ve og vel da de trods alt er hotellets ansigt ud af til og kontaktpunkt for gæsterne. Vi er meget skuffede over hotelkædens manglende forståelse overfor et iøvrigt rigtigt godt receptionspersonale,.
Lovely room, thoughtfully decorated, wonderful service.
The restaurant "Number one": excellent staff, good food. The location of the hotel and the view on the old city. Very noisy hotel, not enough privacy: train station beneath the hotel, doors being smashed all day, staff knocking on doors to check on the room too often. The room had not been refurbished in a very long time. The bed was not particularly confortable. Much too expensive for the service provided and quality of the rooms.
The One restaurant has excellent and unusual food servewd by impecably trained servers.
Hotel staff are very attentive and quality of the meals excellent.
Zoltan at reception was a star. The restaurant and bar team were efficient and friendly. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Looking forward to our next visit
the staff were lovely booked double executive room, but think we got a budget room double bed two different height mattresses. asked them to sort it, they didnt. bathroom poor room smaller than stated in description
Beautiful historic hotel in the perfect location. The staff could not have done more to be helpful. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was spectacular. The light level in the room was so subdued that it was difficult to see inside your suitcase. Other than that no complaints at all.
Everything about this hotel is fantastic, and consistently so. The service in particular is always outstanding.
The Number One was a tremendous experience. The hotel and restaurant staff could not have been better during our stay. I would simply say keep it up!
very very good had all we required Evert up its standard
was very noisy, did not receive free paper that we were offered.. Design was nice but that should not qualify for a 5 stars, was 3/4..
the hotel is stunning, very unique, modern and a great place to chill out after being round the shops in edinburgh
Very friendly and efficient staff. Luxurious contemporary feel / look. Nice breakfast. Upgrade unexpected, but very much appreciated - nice touch. Difficult to get room wamer with controls. was not freezing cold but my wife would have preferred it warmer. Couldn't seem to watch different channels on the different TV's at the same time, but this may not have been possible anyway!
The design of the hotel was really modern but still comfortable. When we arrived I was not expecting to have £100 per night deducted from my bank account, especially since we had already paid for it in full. Fine if you have a credit card as you dont notice the money leaving your a/c (its refunded when you check out) but if you dont have a credit card (I dont) then they ask for a debit card which means that you are money short in your account. If this had been mentioned prior to booking then maybe I would have reconsidered staying there. Its ok if they had just taken the card details but to acutally take the money was unexpected and quite unfair to say that we had already paid for the room etc. There was no warning of this and it was lucky that I had plenty of funds in the account!
Fresh looking hotel Tv did not work despite changing rooms. No fresh black pepper or brown sauce available at breakfast. Waiter unable to confirm the Scottish Breakfast ingredients. Unable to access restaurant from lift as doors locked.
The comfortable rooms and central location and choice to stay in the Hotel or not.
Attention to detail, throughout the hotel
beautiful design, great location, friendly and helpful staff
Central location, especially for the Tatoo Hardest bed we have seen on this month long trip. Inadequate luggage racks or space for clothing storage. It would be ok for an over nighter but not for someone on a long trip. Out of 6 hotels we have stayed in so far on this trip, your was the only one without a bath tub.
The room was excellent , staff were extremely helpful and polite .
Central Location - 1 min from bus & train station, shopping centre, pubs & restaurants, Spa Facilities and Staff were also excellent
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
The location of the hotel is perfect to enjoy Edimburgh,very clean hotel and the staff was very good, also the cocktails are well worth a try! It was a very good stay, if anything the hotel should install doubble glazing or double windows, also having to queue for breakfast in a 4 star hotel is not really good so make the most of the breakfast in your room for an extra £2.50, that was perfect and on time! no queue!
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the spa was very relaxing.
Staff were wonderfully helpful. The fitness room was very well-appointed. There was no chair (except for the desk chair) in the room, and the restaurant could use some improvement in quality.
Excellent room. Sauna, steam room & pool facilities very good.
Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! Lighting was rather dim & furniture was slightly dusty.
Beautiful, brand new hotel. Our city double room was lovely and fairly spacious. Staff were lovely, very pleasant and helpful. None really, other than we didn't receive our complimentary newspaper, but we weren't bothered enough about it to enquire.
the hotel was central comfortable good facilities and hotel staff v.ery helpful and courteous
the pool and breakfast in bed friendly staff lack off parking for near hotel access also i bumpd the back of my car parking outside as you have to reverse park on a busy road!
Location in the heart of Edinborough. Booked 6 months prior to stay. Realized the next day, that I had booked a room for Saturday night, when I would be in Edinburgh only for Friday night. Was unable to switch nights even though it had been less than 12 hours from the time that the reservation was made, and the reservation was six months in the future. Had to reserve a second night. Rooms were clean with a modern open concept layout. Tried a bit too hard to be hip, no trash can in the room itself only a 1 gallon sized bin in the bathroom and no tub in the bath.
I chose this hotel because it was centrally located, easy to walk to from the train station, and a good price. It was exactly as advertised - no more, no less. If you are just looking for a place to lay your head at night while exploring Edinburgh, IBIS is a good choice. The staff were friendly and efficient, the room and bathroom was clean, and check-in/out was simple and direct. Overall I would stay here again. In over 20 years of travel, every hotel except one has fallen short on pillows. Doesn't matter where, they are universally flat and usually require 3 or so to be good for me - I'm a side sleeper who likes fluffy firm pillows.
Morgenmad er super og beliggenheden god Bedere service i svømmebad og fitness
Venlig betjening. God beliggenhed. Ja, jeg brød mig ikke om morgenmaden. Den var absolut ikke spændende. Mangler ost/pålæg - diverse brødtyper uden merpris.
Fantastisk belligenhed, god valuta for pengene. Swimmingpool faciliteterne var under standard.
personalet var utrolig søde og hjælpsomme og værelset var fint og hyggeligt.
Et fremragende hotel, som ligger lige i hjertet af en lille pulserende storby. Smuk indretning og en positiv oplevelse. Alt var positivt.
Super beliggenhed, pæne værelser med pæne møbler, interiør i det hele taget. Stille, bedst egnet til ikke helt unge. Egner sig ikke til børn. Et godt overnatningssted hvor man ikke bruger restaurant eller andre faciliteter udover værelset. Har været der nu to gange i 2010. Syntes at internet burde være inkl. til denne pris og i det hele taget på et sådant hotel hvis de vil have forretningsfolk.
ligger lige midt i den gamle by, skønt. Fint hotel Der var meget langt til pakering, ikke så god en morgenmad.
venligt personale, godt værelse, god beliggenhed i den gamle by-del
All of the staff where extremely helpful.
So very central. Useful to be able to get to the Waverley Station via the lower back door which was just a case of crossing the road to the station. Would be useful to enable access for booking into the hotel. Staff were helpful and friendly with no exceptions. There was no 'heart' to the hotel. No where to sit peacefully other than the Bistro which was open to other customers and did not have seats to lounge in.
The helpful staff Could benefit from air conditioning
Using the Vermillion lounge in the evening for a quiet drink was very pleasant. The Scottish chap with very short hair who attends the door in reception is a great asset to the hotel. We came accross him on several occasions he was always helpful, pleasant, professional and friendly, give him a large pay rise!!!! We had some difficulty getting drinks in the Vermillion lounge. I dialed the number on the card as suggested but no answer. The chap from Chile who is studying for a Master in economic development sorted us out in the end, another significant asset for you hotel I hope you look after him
Friendly helpful staff, very comfortable room, excellent service
Staff welcoming and courteous. Good size rooms and facilities excellent
the staff were extremly friendly
Beautiful, excellent location No coffee or non caloric sweetener in room
Everything!!!! The staff were excellent throughout- ur room was very spacious with a brilliant view over Edinburgh. Restaurant and bar were fabulous and enjoyed having the luxury of the spa right on the doorstep. Fabulously central location.
We were upgraded to the publisher suite which was spacious and atmospheric. This really helped to make toe stay memorable. The staff were friendly and obliging. Overall an excellent service.
The quality fo the room was excellent and the free upgrade was very much appreciated, as were all the little extra touches. The breakfast.
Friendly staff, minor problem in the room, a broken iron, was dealt with very quickly. A top score in my view. Breakfast - excellent.
Nice modern hotel in a quiet side street, very close to the theatre we were attending that night. Pleasant reception staff both on arrival and when leaving. Attention to detail with regards to cleanliness, bedside tables and desk were very sticky, everything else was fine.
Helpful welcoming staff. Well located for the city centre.
Staff were very helpfull. The location of the hotel to the conference just across the road was excellent. The heating system in the bedroom was quiet noisy when it was on.
Ideal location, good food and with private parking
room only option - safe facility - reception staff very helpful - location no bath but shower was good
Staff were excellent Breakfast varied and high quality Location perfect for seeing Edinburgh Niggly maintenance issues eg door handles broken, shower pulsed hot and cold, noisy plumbing
Very nice and comfortable room.
Very nice modern rooms, good location & very good value.
A good clean well run hotel with friendly and helpfull staff .
Tingene fungerer som en velsmurt maskine. Beliggenheden i Old Town var fremragende Det var umuligt at låne en adapter til stikkontakten - og det var for dyrt at gå på internettet. Selv på billige hostels kan man finde fri internet.
Meget imødekommende personale i receptionen. I det hele taget meget smidigt og ukompliceret. Beliggenhed perfekt i forhold til royal mile, Princess street og Station/lufthanvs bus. Jeg kan ikke komme i tanker om noget.
Forbedret service under opholdet på opfordring Uvaskede kopper og teskeer ved ankomst og manglende bord.
venlig betjening, ej anmassende, meget funktionelt - rart når man kan klare sig selv, ingen larm på værelset, værelset lækker Lidt bedre fjernsyn
Super god service med venligt og hjælpsomt personale. Værelset var fint og med god plads til to voksne og et spædbarn. Morgenmaden var rigtig god.
Centralt beliggende, enkelt koncept, udmærket morgenmad, godt Internet Meget dyre parkeringsforhold. Tag ikke bil med til dette hotel.
Hotellet virker diskret og sikkert.Det var utrolig dejligt at morgenmaden var klar allerede kl 06.30, så jeg kunne nå lidt inden jeg skulle hjem.
Den stille og rolige atmosfære,der var rent og pænt og personalet var flinke óg hjælpsomme morgenmaden var lidt tynd
