Recent guest reviews

Booked this hotel over 6 nations weekend paid a little more than usual but definitely worth it! Great location only 5 minutes from Edinburgh Waverley. Room was very clean and modern with an added bonus of complimentary mini bar (only a few soft drinks but great)! Also paid more for breakfast and it was definitely worth it! Definitely would visit again!

Very nice room. Clean. Good locating. Super comfortable. Nice people. Restaurant and bar to dinner was a better choice in very cold nights. It was a very good option. By trams from airport it is the last stops... easy and quickly.

We got an overnight stay here as a Christmas present and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was lovely, well equipped and immaculately clean. Staff were very welcoming and friendly when we checked in and provided us with some useful tips as to were to go for the evening. Food in the restaurant was nice with plenty of choices and breakfast in the morning was excellent offering continental and cooked breakfasts. We will definitley come back here in the summer

We had a quick break in Edinburgh planned for February and found an offer for a secret Edinburgh Hotel on Secret Escapes. After we booked we discovered that it was Hotel Indigo and so we were very pleased having stayed at a Hotel Indigo in York. Arrived and had a very efficient and pleasant check in. Room was a good size, with a lovely bathroom. There was a fan outside the window but in the end it didn’t bother us too much. The bed was a little hard for my wife but I found it ok. Good selection of Aveda toiletries and room always well cleaned lovely fresh towels. We had bed and breakfast and although there was a good selection on the cooked to order breakfast, the buffet left a great deal to be desired. There was a limited selection on the fresh fruit, no berries no fruit compote as described. No honey available. Not overly sure about the hygiene as although there was fresh bread for you to cut yourself, this meant anyone of the other diners could have touched it before. Also the cheese was left out uncovered until the last day when an ill fitting dome was placed over. Next time I think I wouldn’t bother with breakfast. Overall a very pleasant stay.

This is a pleasant and comfortable hotel, in a good location. The staff, especially Ashley on reception, were lovely. We arrived direct from the sleeper with a pre-paid booking via Secret Escapes... except Secret Escapes hadn't actually made the booking. We were just picturing the search for a hotel, trailing around Edinburgh with our suitcases in tow, when Ashley not only gave us a room, she let us check in immediately (it was only about 8am) and left us in peace to wrangle with Secret Escapes with access to wifi and a desk in our comfortable room. Our gratitude knew no bounds!

We booked a mini break to Edinburgh in early Jan, had never been before and were a little unsure of where to stay. We decided to book Hotel Indigo, which was a great choice! - Location was perfect. 30 mins by tram from the airport which stops outside, and about 5mins walk from Princess Street, if that. - Service was great. Ladies on reception were welcoming and managed to get us into our room a lot earlier. Some goodies were also left for my partners birthday, a nice touch! - Room was great too. We were on the ground floor but this was fine, we had a little courtyard to use. A little too chilly to use in the winter, but imagine great for summer. The treats in the fridge were excellent, why doesn’t every hotel do this? They were even topped up everyday which we weren’t expecting! All in all this was a very good hotel and I would definitely use it again, and would recommend to friends visiting the city.

My partner arranged a weekend in Edinburgh as a gift for me and the choosing of this hotel was all down to him. I have to say he did very well! We got the tram from the airport and 30 minutes later, stopped directly outside of the Hotel Indigo, such an easy and pleasant journey! As soon as we walked into the hotel we were welcomed and told the receptionist had just gone off to do something, so we took a seat at the bar and ordered a drink. The waitress that served us was very friendly and even recommended that we try the square sausage at breakfast! Within a few minutes the receptionist had returned and we were checked in. When we walked into the room it was absolutely lovely, not huge but nicely done. My partner had arranged a couple of surprises that the hotel staff had delivered on and I was really chuffed with everything! Breakfast the next day was great, hot food made to order and eggs cooked perfectly! Oh and you must try the square sausage, its great! All of the staff were so friendly and helpful for the whole of our time here and we will definitely return on our next trip to Edinburgh!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. When we arrived the receptionist Daniella was very friendly and helpful. In the room we had beautiful swan shaped towels and chocolates on our bed. Also everything in the minibar was complimentary which I thought was a great added touch. We had irn bru and tunnocks teacakes and walkers shortbread!!!! We checked out and a few hours later we received a call that we had left a pair of glasses in the room and Daniella asked us for an address and she will post them to us. For me this is EXCELLENT service, would recommend to all. Also the location was perfect !!

The staff could not be more friendly and helpful, truly some of the best customer service. The manager should be proud of his team. This is a fun, bright and trendy hotel. The rooms were great, clean and a bit of luxury. There was even a small workout room, perfect for a quick run and few weights. I’m in heaven here and don’t want to leave.

My wife and I attended the Indigo in York Place Edinburgh in January. From the minute we arrived until we departed we thoroughly enjoyed everything about his hotel. The staff at reception, the bedroom, the shower room, breakfast dining room staff, the breakfast then checkout is everything i would have expected to be in-line with the whole experience of this hotel. The decor in our room was great and a very refreshing experience whist keeping the exterior in line with the surrounding buildings. Well done to to all staff. Upon returning to the hotel later that night, I made an observation to a male member of staff who was passing by reception that the outside stair was getting a little slippy due to the heavy snow. I was thanked by this member of staff and within seconds he made a move to deal with this issue. No quibble or huffing and puffing. Straight to dealing with this problem. Well done. We will be back.
