James, Only By Land

The hotel is located in Georgian style townhouses in the new town of Edinburgh.  You may have seen houses like these on TV or in the movies.  At Hotel Indigo Edinburgh, York Place you’ll get the experience of staying in one.  The new town of Edinburgh is a UNESCO world heritage site which means you will be staying in a UNESCO site.
Every one of the hotels 60 rooms is unique and Scottish themed. At the check in desk you’ll receive a warm welcome.  You should ask the staff for recommendations on what to see in Edinburgh.  I was given a map and the receptionist recommended a route which passed by many points of interest of the city... read more

Dundee Courier

Although Edinburgh boasts myriad hotels these days it can be hard to find somewhere a bit different. Hotel Indigo is certainly that, a four-star hotel with online rates that often stack up against ‘cheaper’ hotels. They also go that extra mile with quirky extras like free use of their Polaroid cameras. You are very much encouraged to take snaps as you sightsee. You can save some for yourself and donate others to their display. The best win more

Tartan Spoon

Conor Hamilton, the hotel’s resident mixologist believes the surge in Gin cocktails is just starting and we’ve moved into a Gin Renaissance. With 70% of the UK’s Gin supply coming from Scotland, there is no denying the massive boom in popularity surrounding this versatile spirit.

The bar and lounge at Hotel Indigo York Place are cosy. Situated just off the reception, the bar area will comfortably seat approx. 25 people in a mix of sofas, chairs and bar stools. The bar itself is beautiful and expertly lit from underneath. I was surprised to learn that the bar and restaurant are open to non-residents too, you can just drop in for a drink and seemingly their breakfasts are immense... read more

Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Reviews



This hotel is such a great find. Its location cannot be beat and the rooms are incredibly nice. Great amenities (including complimentary mini bar) and great service. Would definitely stay here again!


Newcastle upon Tyne

I stayed here overnight to see Justin Timberlake on his Man of The Woods Tour. We were greeted with the warmest welcome by the receptionist...genuinely helpful and friendly. We stayed in the Suite, which has everything I could possibly need. A FREE (well stocked) mini bar! Robes, Aveda toiletries, slippers, free calls, a very appreciated cafetiere with ground coffee and a lovely selection of teas. 30mins in and a welcome plate arrived with 5 good size desserts...gorgeous.

Room service was excellent and the breakfast was utterly delicious and brought to the room at no extra charge. The room was very large and spacious with a huge double bed, blissfully comfortable. When needed in the evening the staff pressed a button at reception and a taxi arrived within 2 minutes...Outstanding service!

I had such a fantastic stay here that I shall return in November and I'll be re-booking this Suite.


Kingston upon Hull

Less than 10 mins walk from Waverley. Staff were very polite, helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Room was a good size with a great bathroom. Large shower, robes and Aveda products included. Fridge with free cold drinks. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Both couples enjoyed and would stay again.



Really nice friendly boutique hotel. We didn't arrive until late but the hotel was more than happy to let us check in late. After checking in we also asked for some area recommendations, which again the staff were more than happy to give us. Our room was really nice and very clean, bed was comfortable and gave us a good night sleep. We stayed for two night and did not hear any noise from the hotel or any of the other guest. In a good location with only a short walk to the shops and restaurant/cinema ! If staying on Edinburgh I would highly recommend this hotel!



Stayed for one night, but very impressed. Receptionist was fantastic, very professional, helpful, good looking and immaculately presented. The room was excellent, very clean, bed comfortable and the shower was fantastic, hot and powerful.

Breakfast well worth the money, with attention to detail and served hot. The location is excellent with just a 10 minutes walk from the station and to Princess Street. I will definitely stay here again.

Great boutique hotel and great value for money. Wish I was staying for longer.



Had a one night stay here. The location is great, right beside a Tram Stop, 2 minute walk to St Andrews Square bus station, 15 min from Waverley Train station and short walk to main shopping and restaurants. Hotel was very clean & comfortable. Good Breakfast. Very friendly staff.



Really nice hotel in a fantastic location for train station, shopping and nightlife. Lovely rooms, with complimentary snacks and lovely Aveda toiletries in the room. Bed was really comfortable, breakfast was also excellent and the staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends visiting Edinburgh.



Visited the hotel and stayed 2 nights having stayed at the Indigo in London. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely rooms, great service, very good location opposite the tram stop and bus routes.
Lovely bar and restaurant is on site if you prefer to stay close for dinner!



I stayed at Hotel Indigo for first time last week, the service from the reception, bar and restaurant staff was faultless. The room was very comfortable and the bed was the comfiest i have ever slept in. The Hotel is situated close to the Playhouse and only 5 minute walk from waverley station, there are several good bars and restaurants in the vicinity. A great Hotel in a good area.
