Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Great hotel right in the thick of things. Staff were friendly, and the hotel was very clean. Walking distance for great pubs, restaurants and a lot of touristy stuff. Only downside is the tiny beds. Recommended. Would stay again!

This hotel is in a great spot in the old town. You’re nearly half way between the Castle and the Palace and only a ten minute walk the the main bus and train station. Bus number 100 brings you to the airport in half an hour and buses leave every ten mins. Most of the tours of

We will have to park a vehicle. Where do you suggest we park?
Hi. We didn’t drive, we took the train instead. I think it’ll be quite difficult to park there however I would suggest to send a message to the hotel and ask. On Booking it says that parking it’s possible at a location nearby so the hotel should be able to advise. Hope this helps. Have a great journey.

What size are the rooms
We had room 402 and would say it would of fitted a standard double and a single bed comfortable with space to walk between beds. If you have stayed in a preiumer Inn it's pretty comparable to all the Premier Inn rooms I have had in the past. I have had a room at the back of this hotel and it was smaller in size. just one double and was cosy.

Does this hotel have a restaurant for evening meals
Dear karen3027 We do have a Pizza and Salad Menu available 24/7 if you fancy a little snack, other than that we are surrounded by lovely restaurants -Royal Mile and South Bridge have a huge variety of food along the way, we also have our sister Hotel only around the corner which does have a restaurant (Ibis Edinburgh South Bridge) roughly a 2 minute walk. Hope this response has answered your question, Thanks for contacting Ibis Hunter Square. Olaya Reception Team Member

"Good ratio for quality/price"
"Ask for quiet room at rear of hotel"
"Ask for a quiet room as we were told there was a discoat the bak of the hotel"
"Higher floors give better views over Edinburgh."
"Rooms high up with a rear view are quieter. Hunter square facing rooms get more sounds of the city at night."
