Excellent location right by the York Place tram stop from the airport. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms could use a little TLC but that about it. Beds comfy and plenty of storage.

Lovely Hotel
Enjoyed our stay, staff are really friendly and helpful. Location was perfect just a short walk to princess street and the castle. The rooms were really modern and clean. Breakfast was lovely with a lot of hot choices. I would definitely stay here again.

Brilliant Base for Exploring Edinburgh
Our stay was pleasant. The location was great with just a short walk to all areas of the city centre, there is also a Tesco express over the road and plenty of eateries nearby. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable and the shower had good pressure and was large enough. It was also nice to have the fridge in the room and complimentary snacks and toiletries for use. The only criticisms are that the curtain in our room was falling down and there was a large stained patch on the ceiling, but overally the room was thoroughly cleaned and COVID measures had clearly been taken. We had also pre-booked breakfast at the £7.50 rate but ended up having to pay the full £10 each which was unfortunate. The car park to use also wasn't clear, so we ended up temporarily leaving the car in another Q Park which we had to pay the full rate for. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast and bar was lovely (albeit a little overpriced). We had a good experience baring COVID in mind and we have booked again, although we are giving the Prince Street Hotel Indigo a go next time.

Non-existent wifi all 3 days
Our stay at Hotel Indigo Edinburgh was in August, just as the hospitality industry was reopening. The team wore masks everywhere, and there was ample hand santizer. They also removed all phones from rooms and gave a whatsapp number to communicate with the front desk through. The room itself was well cleaned but not well maintained in my view, lots of scratches on the wall (some very large) and mould in the bathroom area. The most irksome however was that the internet did not appear to work all 3 days of our trip. When I messaged the front desk i did not get a reply to text, and when we spoke to the first desk they kind of shrugged it off as not their problem and offered to let us use the front desk PC - not acceptable given the confidential nature of my work. In my view internet is a fairly basic amenity for any trip and I was very disappointed to have to tether my phone to do any work.

Great Hotel!
Lovely hotel, excellent rooms. Staff were helpful and polite. Couldn’t ask for anything more, other than maybe a biscuit on the tea tray in the room ;)
