Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Technogranny Comfortable rooms esp the disabled bedroom
We were in the easy access suite which made me feel very safe. A quiet and very comfortable overnight stay. Great welcome from well-trained and very cheerful staff

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NCVW Great service, convenient central location, good facilities
From the moment of welcome (smiling and attentive), everything was good - close to Royal Mile, comfortable bed, breakfast of scrambled egg/sausage/baked beans, all good!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CheshireWalker Good Location
Good location, easy walking distance from Edinburgh Waverley Station. Also east to walk to South Bridge where many buses depart from. Not actually on Royal Mile, but parallel one street apart, which is convenient but makes it nice and quiet, path alongside hotel goes straight through to Royal Mile. Breakfast best we've experienced at Holiday Inn Express. Hotel was clean and smart. Room usual good standard. As an IHG Gold Member I was offered either a voucher for a free drink at the bar or 200 points. I'm not sure why IHG only ever give 1 voucher when you've booked 2 in a room, I had the same in New York, they gave me free breakfast vouchers, but only for me not for my husband! I would certainly use this Holiday Inn Express again if I needed a hotel in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kaz61 Fine, but nothing special
Location was great, and overall it was fine. However, the room was very small for three people; the breakfast was OK but all very standard, awful coffee, reconstituted scrambled egg, etc, and wiFi never worked. Nowhere, apart from a very small impersonal space in the foyer to 'relax' over a drink. staff were friendly. Room was clean, so all in all depends what you want out of a hotel room. It was overpriced for want we got.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YorkieLad It was was like I'd never been away
Great service from a wonderful hotel situated just off the Royal Mile.
Staff were superb and helpful as always.
To say it must be around 2 years since I stayed here the staff recognised me and made me feel at home.
Eva on the front desk was her typical friendly,cheerful self and is a credit to the hotel.
Great place to stay for business or for exploring the delights of Edinburgh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MH52 Bacon for breakfast please!
Excellent stay, but please, please, please, bacon for breakfast! Is there such a thing as the "Full Scottish/English" WITHOUT bacon?!
All our American friends travelling with us were so looking forward to it #as you can't get decent bacon over there#, BUT THERE WAS NONE #also a fried instead of scrambled egg occasionally, and the odd mushroom wouldn't have gone amiss#.
Leave it with you. Apart from the "bacon episode", great hotel/location and staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LizzyB51 ANOTHER FAULTLESS STAY
This is the third time I have stayed at Holiday Inn Express in Cowgate Edinburgh, and on each visit have found all the staff exceptionally nice, polite and professional.
The hotel is in a great situation for both The Festival Theatre and The Playhouse Theatre as well as many other attractions. It is very good for connections with local buses and Waverley station is only about a 10 minute walk away. There is a good choice of bars and restaurants on The Royal Mile and in The Grassmarket only a stroll away.
When coming to the city centre to stay this will always be my choice of hotel.
