Hotel staff very good ad helpful...hotel is clean and tidy, needs a little would think they would drop the price due to the 0800 wake up call from the building site next door. I would stay again as the location is pretty good...👍

A wonderful hotel with excellent staff right in the heart of the city. From the moment I checked in I was made feel totally welcome. A big thanks to the hotel for upgrading me for being a Spires member. The hotel is exactly where you want it to be. Next to the OMNI centre, the theatre, next to loads of local cafes and restaurants. The bedrooms are fantastic and the bed incredibly comfortable. There is a good sized modern TV and a desk / chair etc. There is also a fridge that is restocked daily with free cold drinks and chocolate which is a lovely touch. The bathroom was big with a large bathtub as well as a walk in shower that had the large rainfall shower. Toiletries were awesome. I honestly cannot recommend this hotel enough. Congratulations to the staff and management.

Just got back from Edinburgh where I have stayed once a month for the last 5 years however this was the first time I tried the Indigo and was very pleased with my stay. Have stayed at an Indigo in Chicago many years ago and liked that one as well. The boutique style is very nice and all this in a charming old Victorian building on Princess Street in Edinburgh. Staff was very friendly and welcoming and I received a Junior Suite with plenty of space. Lovely and comfortable bed and a nice sitting area. Very good WIFI in the room. Breakfast included in my rate and the eggs Benedict were cooked to perfection. I will be back.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, our room must have been the furthest away from reception but it was not a problem, the staff were lovely and the breakfast amazing. We would definitely go back.

I was in Edinburgh on business for a couple of days. Initially I was upset being provided a hotel in the centre of town and having a long commute to my meetings. But I was in for a pleasant surprise. The location is fantastic- a wide variety of restaurants and shops nearby, including the canon doyle pub. I was given a unbelievably large room with a extended room with a settee. Am not sure if I was just plain lucky or the IHG points helped. The breakfast was reasonable. To my pleasant surprise I found a small fitness room. However modest, it was of great value to me.

Just left this hotel after a week long stay. What a find for us. We had never stayed in Edinburgh before and went by other reviews to pick a spot. It's a perfect location in the city. Clean hotel, warm and friendly staff. Great breakfast too. The tram from the airport drops you at the front door! Sara at the front desk was delightful and helpful too. Can't wait to return!

We loved this hotel. The location couldn't be beat and reception couldn't have been nicer. My husband is a spire ihg member so we were upgraded to the king castle view suite. A little on the small side for a suite, but the comfy bed made up for it! Best bed I've ever slept on! Nice complimentary treats in the fridge. We had dinner in the restaurant and we thought it was one of the best meals we had in Scotland! Food was great, prices reasonable, beautiful atmosphere. Hotel is sort of hidden away, but close to EVERYTHING! Would definitely stay here again. If I were to change anything it would be the shower. Too cold in Scotland to have an open shower, and we had one in 3 out of 4 hotels we stayed in. Otherwise, we just loved this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Just come back from our first visit to Edinburgh and stayed at the hotel indigo York Place. Very friendly reception greeted us and told us all we needed to know. The room was lovely, one of the best we have stayed in. Very nicely decorated with complementary tea, coffee, water, biscuits and a fridge and complementary room safe. No view, but that was not a concern. Big comfy bed and nice bathroom. Breakfast was great with loads of choices. Take the bus from opposite the hotel to go to the Royal yacht brittania for £1.60 each way.

The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a double room overlooking the street. We stayed for 3 nights. The room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is to die for. There is continental with a selection of fresh juices. The selection of hot food for breakfast is great. The breakfast staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is about a 15 minuate walk from Princess Street. I would recommend this hotel.

The reception staff were excellent and very friendly. We enjoyed lunch arrival somewhat late and had simple but excellent food well cooked. The room was spacious light and airy and comfortable. The decor was a little busy but this is being picky. A real find.
