Visit Edinburgh with Ibis Styles Hotel

I had planned to make a visit to Edinburgh for a while now.  Specifically I wanted to visit my homelands capital and show my good friend around the city.  So with flights booked I started to search for a hotel.  Llocation was paramount but I also wanted a stylish hotel so when I came across the IBIS STYLES EDINBURGH I thought perfect!

My favourite had to be the sporran hold all bag on the chair. A clever localised touch that Scot or non Scot would love.  We quickly spruced ourselves up in the large bathroom and headed out into the city to kick start our weekend. Callum Watt EdinburghWatch out for further posts showcasing our Edinburgh Zoo visit to watch the pandas, our trip up the Scott Monument, Kilt chasing in Edinburgh Castle, a walk  up to Arthur’s Seat and dinner at The Witchery.
