his Hotel is part of the IHG family and is well located in the centre of Edinburgh with a tram stop directly outside. On arrival we were greeted by a gentleman on reception who was very eager to please. He was very welcoming and greeted me as an IHG platinum member. Hand sanitiser was available however this was a contactless checkin process. or a video review of our room, head over to you. tube & search for Tim and Matt’s Travel Reviews for this and many other room reviews. It was explained that through our stay, any requirements could be made via their WhatsApp service which included any maid service as this was on demand rather than an automatic daily service, to minimise people in the same area. We were upgraded to a King Room with a lovely comfortable bed and extra area to our room with work space which, although we didn’t need, was handy to hide our larger items away for our three nights. We didn’t have breakfast there as there were plenty of other options being so close to the centre to Edinburgh, but we did use the bar late on night. We were the only people in there and I believe it was the night receptionist that doubled as the bar person. He was friendly liked to make sure we had everything we needed. I hope in busier times, they do have more than one person there as that could become a problem for the staff and of no fault of their own. If we return to Edinburgh, we will certainly consider staying here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights mid October. It was our first stay and really wasn't sure what to expect with Covid and actually thought about cancelling. So glad we didn't as the stay was first class from start to finish. Location is great for all local attractions and shopping. Our room was spotlessly clean (I have OCD when it comes to cleanliness) and beautifully decorated/presented. The breakfast was superb - so much choice and absolutely delicious. However, what really made the hotel stand out and the stay so enjoyable was the staff. Every single one of them couldn't have been any more helpful or attentive. They are a credit to the hotel! We will definitely return and thank you Hotel Indigo for such a wonderful stay.

Although CV19 meant our Playhouse show was postponed we decided to still come to Edinburgh for a few days & a night. We’re so glad we did! The hotel is a short walk from Waverley Station & easy to find, plus it is across the road from the Playhouse. It is also central for all tourist attractions/shopping. All of the staff were polite, friendly, helpful & knowledgeable - whether at check in, the bar, reception, or the restaurant. Their customer service was honestly brilliant! Plus they knew it was my partner’s birthday & left beautiful chocolates & a note in our room for arrival. A really lovely touch! We felt safe with the health & safety procedures & regular thorough cleaning in relation to CV19. The room was stunning & the bed very comfortable. The shower was great & the bathroom was lovely with nice mini toiletries. Breakfast was freshly cooked & so tasty. We actually preferred our breakfast slot & it being cooked to order for us due to CV19 restrictions. A late check-out is great too. We cannot wait to come back next year when we hopefully get to watch our show.

We stayed for three nights. Our first impression was shocking as the room allocated to us on the fourth floor had been cleaned but then the seal on the door had been broken and there had been workmen in there - the evidence being a wall unit in the bathroom was in the sink and an open Stanley knife was in the sink also. There was also a sizeable damp patch in the bedroom. We took the photos down to the desk and were upgraded to a superior room at the front of the hotel on the second floor. The roadworks outside are noisy and the trams start at about 6am - there is s tram stop directly in front of the hotel. The discounted parking at Omni was good , meaning you pay £12 a day. The whole stay was ended by a heating breakdown meaning no hot water on our last morning, so no shower before we checked out, the room cost for the last night was deducted because of this. I would not recommend this hotel and would not stay again.

I stayed here for 4 nights as of 28th sept. The hotel was a recommendation from a friend. Location is excellent, due to covid the hotel was only offering breakfast and although the menu was quite small the food was good quality. The staff were all very helpful and doing a good job. Hotel bar is small and only one beer on tap. If you are looking for an easy stay in central Edinburgh this hotel is a good option.
