Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by asmoza great location and friendly staff
I travelled with my two children to visit the fringe, the hotel was on full occupancy but the staff maintained the most helpful attitude and showed care and concern at all times, it is also extremely well located and the rooms very well designed.

An der Rezeption hatte ich Glück: ich traf auf eine nette Schottin. Sie half mir, wo sie konnte: Professionell, hilfsbereit, freundlich - besser geht's nicht.

What a great location. Only one block off the royal mile! Great breakfast, air conditioning, free wifi, and a super helpful/friendly staff. Probably the best of all of our travels ever.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NFHT Average stay non existent air con , no bbc news 24 in room
European staff were very helpful..... Local staff seemed a little abrupt on checkout.
Air conditioning was non existent had to get a fan from reception which didn't help much as there was no socket near the bed.
Was disappointed the breakfast bar had bbc news 24 but the rooms didn't And told by reception it ran on a separate system.
Stayed at plenty of holiday inns first one with a setup like that????
If it wasn't for the superb location we would probably look elsewhere.

The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful. The only drawback was the tiny room but I understand that's expected all over Europe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hoofer Friendly Staff
From the moment of arrival until departure all the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and warm
The location of the hotel was good
The standard of cleanliness in the rooms was excellent
The only improvement I could suggest would be a small fridge in the room with some milk as many people (including myself) do not like UHT milk

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan 111 Helpful staff but room too small for family of four
We stayed here as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) for 2 nights to see the Tattoo. The staff on Reception were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. A lovely hotel in a quiet area, clean and modern. However, our room was too small for us. Our children are 14 and 17 and were sleeping on a sofa bed which was too small and very uncomfortable. Ideally the room should only sleep two adults and at a push one child.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by markb469 ideal location and good service
Location ideal, rooms clean and up to date.
Breakfast good but more choice would be good also!
bar prices okay for a capital city, (£3.75 a bottle), would use more if slightly cheaper!
Would certainly stay again next time I visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John, York GOOD QUALITY AT A SENSIBLE PRICE
HOTEL IS IN THE COWGATE PARALLEL TO THE ROYAL MILE BUT AT THE HOLYROOD PALACE END SO LONG STEEP CLIMB TO EDINBURGH CASTLE.
FACILITIES ARE BASIC BUT ADEQUATE AND REPRESENT VALUE FOR MONEY.
RECEPTION AREA AND THE BREAKFAST ROOM ARE QUITE SMALL AND VISITORS ARE REMINDED ABOUT WHEN TO EAT AND AVOID CONGESTION.

I was very well looked after throughout my stay (and beforehand). I have to follow a gluten free diet and my needs were met - it was great to even have a choice for breakfast.

Excellent stay, if a little overpriced. Good clean accommodation, although spoiled slightly by the sound of the air conditioning units outside my room. Free breakfast very good value for money. Staff service very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stephb22 Great stay for business and pleasure
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I was given a very clean and comfortable room in a quiet corner of the hotel. This allowed me to both relax and get plenty of work done. Since this was my first stay in Edinburgh, the wonderful staff provided me with plenty of useful information and made sure that I was taken care of. Finally, the hotel is in a great location. I was within walking distance of several stores, restaurants, tourists attractions, and the train station. If I ever do return to Edinburgh, I am definitely booking a room at the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh - Royal Mile.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisM770 Just a block off the Royal Mile
The hotel located just a block off the Royal mile was a great place to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the crowds and sights, without being directly in it. Stepping just a few paces off the main street allowed us to relax without the loud evening noise and chatter.
The hotel was clean and well maintained, the staff -pleasant friendly and helpful and the rooms were spacious enough to relax in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by S Valdez quiet convenient location
The Holiday Inn Express Royal Mile was the perfect hotel for staying in Old Town Edinburgh. It is convenient to the Royal Mile and Princes Street as well as to Waverley train station. The rooms were clean and neat. There was no noise so our rest was quiet. I would stay there again.

Very clean rooms and facilities. Exceptionally friendly staff and management! A good location for easy quick access to all the sites in Edinburgh. Wash clothes are not available and the breakfast is tasty for the first two days, then its boring same old thing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jamesk73 Good Location, Comfortable Beds
Good location, although Royal Mile is a bit of a stretch, it's actually on Cowgate which runs adjacent to it. We cabbed it everywhere but if you're more energetic there are plenty of hills to climb. The room itself was very good, we had free internet access so could catch up on emails etc... while we were in the hotel. Beds are very comfortable, bathroom is quite good too, shower only.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tsar T comfortable and reasonably priced
We had a comfortable 2 nights at the hotel.
The bed for me and my wife was good and comfortable but the one for the children was a bit uncomfortable.
The ladies at the reception were very good to us. We had requested an early check in and when we arrived at around 10am they made sure we check in as early as possible. Overally I dont mind recommending this hotel to my friends who may visit Edinburgh.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alteron66 Enjoyable Stay, but...
Overall enjoyed the stay at this hotel. Only issue the whole family had was with the beds. The mattresses were very uncomfortable and the pillows very thin. Almost had to triple up on pillows for comfort. The staff was very helpful and professional. The location near the Royal Mile was great as we could easily walk to most of the tourist sites within Edinburgh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMK75 Very good hotel and great location!
The location just off the Royal Mile was wonderful. We felt the staff was very helpful and the rooms were very Holiday Inn Express- just fine. With the dollar's value to the pound it was very expensive for us, but we felt it was worth it to be so centrally located in a nice facility. Loved Edinburgh!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teresa5751 Fabulous service all round
Would definitely recommend this hotel again, just a pity the rate was a little more expensive than expected but this was due to the Highland Show on in Edinburgh at the same time.
