Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tessaII Matresses due for replacement
Holiday Inn Express is our favourite Edinburgh resting place as it is convenient for parking and shopping and is excellent value for money. The breakfast is particularly good for this budget of hotel. We have stayed here over a few years now and the mattresses are due for replacement as they feel past their sell by now but otherwise is still a good choice for a visit to Edinburgh.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Ideal for Edinburgh stay
Clean,comfortable and next to the Ocean Terminal. Breakfast is a good start to the day after a comfy nights sleep. Pleasant cheerful staff and there is a terrific bus service into Edinburgh every few minutes. Could not be better for your stay in Edinburgh.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PomPom13 Good value stay in a pleasant location
My stay was pleasant and apart from 2 minor maintenance issues in the room which meant the room was slightly noisy everything else was to the usual high standard.
I would be more than happy to stay here again as it represents good value in a location I like with easy access to all areas I would want to visit. Though it is not a problem as the hotel is more than willing to hold luggage in a secure area it would be handy if all Holiday Inn express hotels had the same check out time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chedlite Comfortable & reasonably convenient
The room was clean, a decent size and the bed was comfortable. It was relatively easy to get into the city centre, the bus service (No 22) ran every few minutes and took around 20 minutes to get to Princess Street in the centre, for £1.50. A day ticket cost only £3.50 enabling as many journeys, on different routes, as necessary. Unlike city centre hotels, there was plenty of free parking within the bounds of the hotel. The staff were polite and friendly and I would certainly stay here again. My only word of criticism is reserved for the hot breakfast, this wasn't great, ok perhaps, but a little basic in many respects, i.e. cheap sausage, no bacon or fried eggs, very thin runny beans and scrambled egg you coud stand a fork up in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Madgescotland Good location, great staff but beds could be bigger!
My wife and I enjoyed our stay, great location and friendly staff. On a down side the beds are only double and possibly due for a refresh given the softness of the mattress ?
However, as noted above the staff are great and so very helpful without doubt this alone made our stay enjoyable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zoe39 Fantastic stay, lovely surroundings, comfortable room
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Edinburgh for a shopping / pub & club weekend. It was clean, comfortable, light and airy rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was good quality and well cooked. The beds were very comfortable and cosy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bopo72 Good Location
Good location (5 minutes walk) for Royal Yacht Britannia and Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre (shopping and restaurants). Bus number 22 outside hotel will take you to Princes Street in 15 mins, everything to a good standard for the price, room service not provided but you can collect an iron and ironing board from reception and they even have an ice machine next to reception to chill that romantic bottle of wine in the room !

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Emmie123 Room far too cold.
Because of the room temperature our stay was unsatisfactory . The heating is completely inadequate as it is unable to cope with the freezing winter temperatures in Scotland. In future, if the hotel heating doesn't improve we'll only visit when the outside temperatures are more clement.
In addition, I am disabled and found that we had to park at some distance from the entrance, in the rear car park as the disabled spaces were all occupied by cars which were not displaying a Disabled Blue or Green badge. Needs to be monitored.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kaz89 Well looked after
The room was exactly as expected and the sofa bed was fully made up for our son, this hasn't been the case in a number of other hotels. The staff could not have been more helpful and the Manager at the front desk was excellent. Great advice on local amenities and he even checked if we needed any food discount vouchers as we were on our way out for the evening. Excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sheels Theatre trip
Stayed here for one night while visiting Edinburgh for a theatre outing. Bus service into city is excellent from here, and hotel had plenty parking . It is right beside ocean terminal so plenty eating places close by. The hotel itself was fine, our room was very clean as was the en suite. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was adequate, more continental than full english. Would use this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeniroo Would definitely stay again!
I cannot fault this hotel! My room was clean and comfortable with a lovely big shower. The room was of a good size with a large tv and full free view channels. Only 20 minutes on the bus to the city centre and across the road from the Ocean Terminal for dining on an evening. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Free wifi in my room and breakfast included made my stay relaxing and stress free. I would definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donrobino Fantastic value for money hotel
Stayed here for 2 days whilst visiting Edinburgh on sightseeing trip. Hotel was in perfect location for Royal Yacht Britannia (excellent half day out) and easy to jump on buses to city centre. We walked to the Royal Botanical gardens in 30 mins. Also visited Mary Kings Close, Both were very enjoyable. We found the Number 22 excellent for centre. Hotel has bus stop right outside. Free coffee machine in reception breakfast area. Breakfast was basic but nice. Staff were all excellent and most helpful. Would definitely stay here the next time that I visit Edinburgh.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wat37 convenient and accessible
We stayed here one night as was going to the playhouse - great location, easy to get to by car and parking, bus stop for playhouse right outside hotel! Staff were informative and friendly/helpful. Good budget stay. Breakfast wasn't the best but I assume was being provided on a budget - poor quality but did the job. Ocean Terminal shopping centre is just across the road too. Grouting in shower area needed a bit of a freshen up.

Enjoyed our stay very comfortable hotel and great price - will have no hesitation in returning. This is the first time I have had recognition of being a rewards member - provided with discount vouchers for restaurants.
The only downside I felt there was an odour in the corridors on level three

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OBE1 Superb customer service on reception desk
Excellent staff in reception and could not be more helpful. Everything went extremely well and I will return in the future. I visited to attend a formal dinner on the Royal Yacht Britannia and the location was just perfect, with good free parking and free wifi access. I didn't even need to ask for the code, it was offered at the check in process. Thank you all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 relaxing and enjoyable stay
The staff are very friendly and helpful, the buffet breakfast had a very varied selection to cater for all tastes. No need for a car as bus stop is just outside hotel with a frequent service to city centre.
We have stayed at this hotel before and will certainly return again.Thanks to all for a lovely break.

I have been to this hotel many years ago and I found it great value and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The only thing I would change is the bed I was in .It was too firm for me. However my Husband loved it .

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JojoW Overpriced and cramped
Although a pleasant welcome and lovely reception, the room was tiny and basic. It was right beside the lifts and could hear every person coming in and out and their conversations. Breakfast was very poor with cold sausage and beans.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by latheman Good location, bus stop at Hotel door.
The hotel is well situated as easy the get around Edinburgh as there is a bus stop right outside the Hotel.The Hotel has it`s own car park free of charge and you can park there for the duration of your stay.The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are many good restaurants within minutes walk, also there is a large shopping centre minutes from the hotel with a cinema, The Royal Yacht Britannia is also berthed there. The staff at the Hotel were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very clean and bed linen was changed every second day. The breakfast was basic but hot and plentiful.Overall is is a very good hotel at a very reasonable price.WE have stayed there 3 times in the last 2 years and will stay there again.
