Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 339 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Value for money except for those hard mattresses. You got to like them Central location, quick check in and out, friendly staff. Room was ready upon arrival although we were early. Clean and not too much noise considering you are in the middle of the city. Breakfast good enough for one or two days, after that maybe boring. Can't get used to the Express mattresses, they are too hard, but maybe for others no problem. Enough restaurants to pick from, Playhouse across the street, Calton HIll for a hike and a great view over the city and shopping mall around the corner for those who fancy it. I liked the local stores on Broughton Street better. Thanks for the List Guide with all the local restaurants. March 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Had to move room as the tv wasn't working. Went to purchase the upgraded wifi from reception but was given differing info regarding how much for how long. Eventually paid £5 for an hour but the code wouldn't work. Three trips to reception to resolve. When it actually worked the speed was no better than the free wifi. I felt it was a disgustingly large charge for something so useless. I tried to download 1 programme from BBC I player and gave up as within the hour it still hadn't downloaded. Not a great experience. March 9, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sheet convenience to the centre of Edinburgh where else can you stay that ticks all the boxes. Very convenient for bus, train and the best shops! Time and time again we have stayed here and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere it presents. Thank you March 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birthday treat Worth every penny! So handy for shopping and the theatre. Very clean, great breakfast and service. Why would anyone pay five star rates in Edinburgh when this hotel has everything you need for a weekend trip to beautiful Edinburgh. Don't hesitate to stat here. March 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast and Rooms On arrival at our allocated freezing cold basement rooms we found one of the rooms had black mould round the walls, just above the skirting boards. Reception staff moved us immediately so I can't complain about the service they provided at all. The rooms were very clean and facilities good and having a choice of soft or firm pillows in the room was a nice touch. Breakfast was reasonable but the fruit juice was so watered down you might as well have drunk a glass of water. March 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Prime location First class hotel in a prime location. All services provided were of top quality, no questions on any aspects of the hotel. March 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by breakfast cooked element of breakfast was cold, unappetising and very poor quality. would be better to drop this element and concentrate on a good cold variety. March 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by room lovely and warm comfortable bed too Couldn't fault this hotel at all. We were at playhouse which is directly across the road. Room was well worth money and breakfast was fine. Something for everyone. Would definitely return . February 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and double bed but pull out double sofa bed awful We stayed 3 nights last week. The hotel is very well situated just a 5-10 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Princes Street and Waverley train station (enough to be away from too much evening noise if you have children to consider as we did with our two young sons). There was a Tesco Express foodstore about 50m along the same road too. The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and helpful, the rooms very clean and tidy, and the hot and cold buffet style breakfast included had something to suit all tastes. The only negative feedback/comment I have is that the double sofa bed in the room was extremely uncomfortable with two very evident 'bumps' (slats) at about halfway and just below again across the base. This made for very uncomfortable sleeping for my two sons (my wife and I ended up taking turns to sleep with one of our sons on it to ensure we all managed to get at least 1 or 2 decent nights sleeps on the standard double bed (which was very comfy). Overall, I would recommend the hotel and we would use it again (but would ensure the fold out double sofa bed was better!). February 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Family Break The room was clean, functional and quiet. The Hotel was near the main shopping centres so eating out was cheap and varied and in walking distance of the train station, with a city centre supermarket virtually next door if you needed any extras. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we were able to leave our bags after we'd checked out so that we could enjoy the City before catching our evening train. Highly recommend this hotel, a very pleasurable experience and fantastic value. February 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by faultless A great place to stay, was doing family history research at Scotlands People on Princes Street. Just a five minute walk. Only two minor faults, scrambled eggs and sausages could have been a bit hotter. My room was first class not "budget class" spotlessly clean and comfortable. i thought it was a shame that the bar/lounge was not used a bit more, it is so comfy and relaxing and had a good chat with the duty manager the night that I had a few malts to drink. I hope to come back at a later date but this time with my wife. Denboy Aberdeen February 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Service I just wanted to take the time to say what fantastic service I have received from all the staff during my stay at the HIExpress in Edinburgh. I have been staying at this hotel over the last couple of months on business, and wanted to highlight how great the staff have been. It makes a big difference to have cheerful, happy and helpful staff when you are away from home for long periods. Their attitude and smiles have made for an enjoyable stay and I would definitely return and recommend to others. Thankyou! February 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent location with friendly staff We loved the location ideal for walking around the city and seeing all the sights.Helpful friendly staff.The breakfast choice was excellent for all our family.Only one complaint uncomfortable mattress February 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great convenient hotel Great convenient hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Good atmosphere February 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by superb stay I thoroughly enjoyed my stay from check in to check out at the edinburgh city centre hotel- the location was perfect for the leisurely trip i had planned. There are restaurants, a cinema, theatre and shopping centre right on the doorstep. I only made the most of my included breakfast one morning out of three because they stopped breakfast at 9.30am and i was not up by then which was my own choice, if i was that worried i would have set an alarm. The staff i encountered were all friendly, my room was spacious and had a good view and the facilities were good. February 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely Place To Stay Stayed here as going to the Playhouse which is directly across the road. Staff friendly and helpful, spotless throughout, room was comfortable, teas made in the room. Central point to go out and about. Hot breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, sausages, beans and toast, (a bit of bacon would have been nice but that's just my preference), plenty cereal, yoghurt, fruit, etc, spoiled for choice. Would definitely stay here again and will definitely recommend it. February 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Handy for Playhouse and parking Comfortable bed. Good breakfast choices. Great system for discounted parking February 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality of Service We stay fairly regularly at Holiday Inn hotels and at least one every year at Picardy Place. We are always impressed with the attitude of the staff who are friendly and polite. We are also certain that the room will be very clean and comfortable and this is a consistent quality of Holiday Inns in the UK Staff respond promptly to enquiries and issues. We reported that our kettle wasn't working and within an hour a maintenance engineer came to the room. I also like the provision of Broughton Ales in the bar, which is a local beer. Not all Holiday Inn stock such local, almost specialist beer. February 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent HIX Excellent stay in a great location in Edinburgh. Staff excellent and friendly and very helpful. Will definitely stay here again review by Platinum Ambassador. February 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weekend away First time we have stayed at the Holiday inn, we enjoyed the location of the Holiday Inn. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Lovely lady on reception when we checked in, very helpful advising where we could eat as we were late checking in. Been to Edinburgh lots of time before so we do know our way around. We would stay again most definitely. : ) February 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great choice for a weekend break Great location for a weekend break. Very comfortable room and adequate breakfast to set you up for a days sightseeing. great value for money February 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable , value for money I was amazed at the service and quality of the Hotel . I had stayed at the Hilton in SanFrancisco last September and I find it difficult to believe that this modest Hotel came up thrumps in comparison to a well known brand . Will definitely use the chain again . Location was great, it was adequate for the 2 nights stay and having breakfast on site was really handy . Slight criticism is the lack of an extractor fan in the bathroom ,which upon first entry into the room makes it smell a bit damp/musky . However it becomes less obvious once you are settled in or shut the bathroom door. February 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good large room great shower. Booked on line with ease room ready on arrival. Given twin room instead of double but as only staying one night it was no problem. Staff friendly and very helpful booking in and out offered to keep luggage if needed. Breakfast was Luke warm but plenty of it. Would use Holiday express again and recommend it to others. February 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First class location The location is excellent with Edinburgh city centre right there. We were lucky to be able to park in the hotel car park and the rate was well worth it. The room was spotless and very comfortable with no external noise. Breakfast was an added bonus. We will certainly stay here again and have no hesitation recommending this hotel. February 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location for city and theatre A perfect stay, we stayed for 2 nights. Quiet and peaceful nights sleep. January 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cheeky night in Edinburgh Stayed at this hotel for the first time using my points. 3 of us in the room and the room was more than comfortable enough (my wife and I plus my 16 year old son). Hotel is in a fantastic location, is easy to find and the the overall standard is much better than other HIE's I have stayed in. Breakfast is free, so hard to complain about it and certainly plenty of choice. Heating on everywhere made the hotel very hot for a local - but then with a lot of foreign visitors from warmer climates maybe that is what they needed. Huge waste of energy though! Fancy a weekend in Edinburgh, for the price, given the location and quality, you can;t really do any better. January 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Stayed for two nights,very clean and comfortable,staff made you feel very welcome,room totally adequate for our needs. Breakfast set us up for our visit around Edinburgh,the hotel is very well situated for the center of Edinburgh. We will use this hotel again, highly recommended . January 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value The location of the hotel is excellent right in city centre across from playhouse. Staff friendly and polite. Room basic but very clean and what I would expect for the money and star rating. I would definitely stay in this hotel again. January 29, 2014
