Check in staff did not know there was a show on at the Playhouse opposite. They said nothing was on, on Fri. 13th. But we knew there was, so went over the road

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hazza21 Great value, service and overall experience
Friendly and helpful staff, quite a small lobby area but that was expected in a city centre hotel. Got a little crowded in the lobby area as a result but was not a problem. Room was quite small but that was due to our use of the sofa bed as well as the double bed. Rooms were cleaned to a high standard and the tea bags were replaced which is always a positive. Breakfast was amazing! The whole Holiday Inn had a great welcoming feel and I would most definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Edinburgh for a weekend on a limited budget.

Listened to everything we needed and made it happen. What more can I say. Staff were really helpful. It delights me to be able to say that.
Location is great for the city but it can be a bit noisy at nigt,
Enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ScottMH Could be better
Checking in at 4pm, I did not expect to be told that my room was not ready, and that I would have to wait ten minutes before it was available (this period actually extended to more than twenty minutes).
Shortly after gaining access, I was forced to vacate again as a result of a fire alarm going off. During this event there were no staff on hand to offer guidance or advice; or to let guests know when they could return to their rooms.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lbngr1 not a good place to stay
poor quality mattress gaves us both bad backs hence not much sleep, had room with connecting door to next room which was very unnerving for my wife,
room was set for 24 degrees on radiator had to leave window open most of night to cool room down which does not help with road noise.
breakfast room was cramped not ideally suited to such numbers.
would not recommend staying again rooms starting to look very tired.

Staff at reception were very helpful - even kept flowers I had been given in water till we were ready to leave. Decor fresh and even though it is in the centre of Edinburgh very quiet. Would go back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nic141 Nice stay
Had a good stay, staff were friendly on arrival and check out. Mattress was really soft so didn't sleep very well (rm 315). Like the choice of pillow but could do with 2 of each in the room. Did report it to reception on check out and they said someone would look at the mattress. We have stayed in other holiday inn express hotels and the mattress were firm abit disappointed when it wasn't the same.
There was alway a lot of running water noise within the walls which was very disturbing.
Did ask if mattress toppers were available but was advised there is no choice on mattress.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shri 12345 Average/Poor staff performance and cleanliness
Some how the staff dint clean my room for 2 days. Very bad for IHG hotel performance. Dint like it. I called the reception for asking the staff to clean the room. No one from reception bothered to look at it. Went to the cleaning staff for cleaning the room he dint bother to clean it.
The amount I paid for staying dint worth the stay I believe I would not prefer IHG again Premier inn or any cheap BB is better than this

Very friendly welcome by reception on check in. Hotel clean and perfect location. Room was adequate in size for a short stay. Beds were fairly uncomfortable and our room (323) had lots of traffic noise too. Staff gave great recommendations even eating at the nearby Italian which was gorgeous and our children loved. Would definitely return for the location but request a quiet room away from the roadside!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lily68 stranger disturb
In the morning at 10:30, even not the time of check out. There is a impolite and rude man who just open my door without knocking the door or pressing the bell. I felt very angry. When I check out, I told the reception what happened. They just say they will check, not even mentioned about further reparation. I feel they r such irresponsible!!!
I think someone needs to give me a reasonable explanation!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scotty282 Great hotel
This was the 2nd time we have stayed here and still cannot fault this hotel. The staff are really helpful, the hotel is immaculate and the rooms are of a very high standard. Have stayed in other hotels in edinburgh and paid a lot more money for a room that don't compare. Excellent location with Omni centre just across the road. Highly recommend and will definetely stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alfie 04 Pleasantly Surprised
I was looking for a nice hotel to take my mother for a 75th Birthday weekend with show. I spent ages looking at different hotels but in the end decided on this one as it is literally across the road from the Playhouse. From the moment we arrived the staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was fine, spotlessly clean and perfect for our needs. Breakfast was an added bonus . Our room was at the back and really fairly quiet for a city centre hotel. I will definitely return. It is in a great position both for the theatre and for shopping. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pgs0971 Excellent staff - really accommodating especially Sangeeta
We stayed for 3 nights in a family room with a 7 and 5 year old. Room was a bit small when sofa bed was out and the room we had was quite warm with no air con adjustment but we just opened the window. Overall very comfortable and close to everything. Family day pass on bus only £7.50 which was really useful as you can hop on and off as you need to. Breakfast was good and would definatly come back. Very good value for money.

Had a lovely stay, all staff I came into contact with were very professional and helpful. Great spacious room with good facilities. Car park was a bonus and location was ideal. Didn't use the bar so can't comment in that but would certainly stay again when in Edinburgh.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maz1 Nice room but too noisy
Nice room and good breakfast, could do better if breakfast was served until 10.00am, 9.30 finish a bit sharp. Our room was on the ground floor at the main road side and we found it too noisy .
Would use the hotel again but in a different room

Great location. Lots of bars, restaurants, theatre, cinema all nearby. Clean and friendly, but wifi in my room 4th floor was unusable slow. Spent approx 30 minutes on 2 devices and couldn't even access my email. Shame as the rest of the stay was perfect.

Obwohl im Internet kostenloser Internetanschluss angepriesen wurde, sollte meine Enkelin dafür bezahlen. Die kostenlose Nutzung war viel zu schwach. Der Preis für die Parkplatznutzung war zu hoch. Die Freundlichkeit des Personals ließ auch zu wünschen übrig.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie454647 Iron in rooms
Only problem I see was we had to take all the
Clothes up to the next floor to the iron room
This was a very annoying thing as we would
Have liked to do this in our room rather than
Have to go to another floor 2 do this so please
Please scrap this and install irons in the rooms
Charging a few pounds more would still be
Good I would pay extra for iron in rooms
I never scored on breakfast as i never had it cost of
Room a bit expensive would stay another time
