                This is a great hotel very close to Edinburgh city centre. Customer service is of a very high standard and the restaurant is impressive.

                The hotel is conveniently located and the room in which we stayed was very comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly, cheerful and helpful. We did enjoy both the breakfast and a delicious dinner there. If you are looking for a nice hotel with a reasonable price, this is the one.

                The hotel is conveniently located. However, the gps of our hire car was able to lead us there. It was because, unfortunately, the whole road where the hotel is located, had been blocked to vehicular traffic due to some roadworks. But, do not disregard this hotel or cancel your advance booking just because of this. If you have heavy luggage like we did, I would suggest that you give the hotel a ring before arrival to enquire about the traffic diversion and the spot nearest the hotel where you can park your car to drop off your heavy luggage and passengers. And, if you request, the friendly hotel staff would probably offer assistance in carrying the luggage to the hotel for you. In fact, the "drop off point" is not far away from the hotel entrance.

                There's lots to like, from the central location near the train station (yet away from the crowds of the Royal Mile), restaurants, and shops, to the extraordinarily congenial staff. I've never seen rooms in this price range that offered so much -- in ours: great robes, free (very basic) WiFi, free use of the minibar (no alcohol but with water, milk, and small snacks), satellite TV on large flatscreen at foot of the bed, chaise longue, iron and board, espresso maker, large bathroom with rainforest shower (and water pressure to match), etc. The bar downstairs, small and unpretentious, is a fine place to relax for a chat. They haven't gone the route of many city hotels, seeking status by being grand, intimidating, and only formally polite. It's almost as if they welcomed your visit and wanted you to enjoy yourself.

                Nothing to complain about (the long Bond film across the street was hardly the hotel's fault). If I had to think of a gripe: there was no offer of newspapers in our 'superior king', and the compact (though comfortable) feel of the room didn't quite suggest the prairie-like 30 sq m indicated on Booked.net. I may be wrong about that -- didn't measure it.

                The decor of the room and public areas was beautiful.

                It was let down a little by the slow breakfast service. Its nice to have a cooked to order breakfast but including waiting for our table to be set it took an hour and half from beginning to end.

                A very affordable hotel, lovely staff. The rooms are contemporary, extremely clean and comfortable to stay in. We'll be staying here again next time we return to Edinburgh.

                I was warmly welcomed upon arrival by staff and shown to my room and it was explained how everything in the room worked and what was available in the hotel.The room was immaculate and spacious and the small complimentary mini bar was a nice bonus. I personally loved the shower in my room pity I couldn't fit it in my backpack. Hotel Indigo is a five minute walk from Waverley Station and easy to find. You are right next to The Playhouse theatre, cinema and a mulitude of named restaurants/pubs and a tesco express across the road in case you forgot anything. There is a major road refurbishment goining on in New town at present, but I found I was not disturbed by the noise in any way.

                THis has to rate as the best hotel we have stayed in in this country, and compares favourably with some of the top class hotels we have stayed in around the world. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the room was well appointed, quiet and very comfortable, and the food was excellent. The location of the hotel, in the centre of the city, was perfect for us. All in all, a great boutique hotel at a very reasonable price, would highly recommend it.

                Could not fault this hotel at all.

                It has a unique decor that was just beautifully and quite funky. Rich in colors and so well thought out. Beds are great, wi fi worked well which is often an issue. We had a seperate work area in our room which came in handy for writing emails etc.great location with easy walking distance to restaurants etc. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good as well with all your hot food being cooked freshly as you ordered.
