"The rooms are all different cities of the world and are decorated beautifully."
"The staff were all very friendly and attentive and I couldnt speak highly enough of them. They catered for everything and were happy to give advice regarding directions, local attractions etc."
"Breakfast was brilliant and the bar downstairs was great. A fantastic short break and ideally situated in the centre of Edinburgh."
"My partner and I stayed at Le Monde last week for our anniversary. We wanted a special hotel for that special day. And luckily, it was all we dreamed of !
We ate at Paris restaurant and we've had the best meal of our whole trip and the waiter was absolutely charming. Upon arrival, we were given two free drinks as we were guests at the hotel. They are amazing, not just regular Sex on the beach type of drinks. I had a raspberry martini - yummy!
I would absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a true high-class experience - classy, pretty and respectful. "
"This is a lovely hotel for those who like smaller boutique styles with a modern vibe. Each room is different and you are given free drinks passes when you check in and VIP access to their club."
"Absolutely gorgeous hotel! Beautifully appointed rooms and wonderful customer service. I highly recommend it for couples as it is very romantic.
Every detail is considered. When I arrived in my room, the bed was turned down, the television guide was turned to the right date, and there was a weather report on the bed. the in-room breakfast was delicious as well and included the best croissant I have had in years."
The bed was incredibly comfortable and the duck down duvet was pure joy. Our room was a good size and the bathroom was fabulous. I also loved that each room had its own individual theming.
I would definitely stay here again it was quirky and unique - and a little haven of luxury.
If there is one hotel that you choose to stay at in Edinburgh, make it Le Monde. From the fantastically helpful and obliging staff, to the sheer wow factor of our suite (we stayed overnight in Los Angeles), to the chic and trendy bar and excellent food and service; it really was an amazing experience, and one that we would wholeheartedly recommend. So, get out there and see the world - you really won't regret it!!!!
Had an amazing stay. We checked into LA which was stylish and full of LA character. Absolutely loved the huge bathroom, plasma TVs, CD player and the bed was by far the comfiest bed I have ever slept in.
Le Monde has so much to offer and we are already planning a return visit. The staff were so friendly and helpful and they really made us feel welcome.
Le Monde would be great for any occassion,however I think the LA suite is a must for a girls night out.
After checking in to the helpful cheery receptionist and freshening up in our room we visited the stunning Vienna bar for a few early evening drinks, moving on to the Paris cocktail bar for dinner.
The room was fabulous with lots of little quirky things going on. a very stylish quality themed room which oozes luxury and relaxation - the huge bathroom is lovely.
Overall a wonderful experience which will be repeated, well done Le Monde.
This hotel is one of the best we’ve stayed in. We visit Edinburgh on a regular basis and I look forward to booking Le Monde for our next break. The staff were very helpful and friendly, food was very good, and all aspects of the room were great. This hotel is well worth the money, cant wait to return.
To use the word amazing to describe this hotel and the staff doesn't seem enough. We had a great time and I feel very proud of myself for having found this little gem of a hotel to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday because we still talk about it now and will definitely stay there again.
Immaculate decor, great service from everyone and the food was great... What staying away should be all about, felt like a little kid finding out which room I was going to get as they're all themed.
The hotel was absolutely superb and the service was outstanding. We stayed in the Beijing room which was lovely but we also took a sneaky peek at Atlantis room which was amazing! On arrival we had a bite to eat in the bar which had a great atmosphere and the food was excellent. Location of the hotel is brill, really central and near lots of nice shops and bars. We will most definitely be staying there again, next time we may try for the Paris room!
This hotel was amazing and is in easy reach of all public transport including tourist sites. It was everything I expected and more me and my partner didn't have to leave the hotel as the food and bars were excellent. We will definitely be visiting Le Monde in the future
We loved the themed room (we had the Dublin) We also loved that you were given a free drink and access to the nightclub. A special touch that was the cherry on our cake! The restaurant was fairly busy when we arrived for lunch but the food was fresh, tasty and exceptionally reasonable. The staff were so polite and friendly and we were made to feel really welcome from the moment we arrived until we departed. We will go back the next time we are in Edinburgh
The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. They really went the extra mile for us and there were loads of nice little touches. We stayed in 'Barcelona' which was decorated in a Spanish style with some Gaudi prints as well as having a selection of Spanish CDs and DVDs. When we came back from our night out, the bed had been turned down and chocolates left on our pillow. My wife loved that. We also went to the 'Shanghai' club when we came back from our original night out and took the private lift down to the club. The door staff put some of our friends on the guest list as well which was excellent. Perfect hotel for guests of our age( 26 - 35 ).
The hotel was lovely, very clean and staff extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. Location is excellent right in the centre with train station nearby and 2 large car parks. We also got access to the VIP area of the nightclub which is part of the hotel and very good. Would highly recommend it as a unique place to stay
Le Monde is bang in the heart of the city on George Street and is easy to find. The hotel is small and well run. The rooms are beautiful, reasonably large and full of gadgets: plasma TV(lounge area),LCD TV (above bed), a small waterproof TV in the bathroom, DVD/CD player etc etc . You won't want to leave the hotel. However you should go out and see what Edinburgh is really about. Fantastic hotel in a fantastic city. Oh and the food is good ; lots of comfort food and good value drinks. (Laurent Perrier Rose £60). The bars and restaurant are all funky too!
First, the location. Right behind Princes St, so central, 2 minute walk from the train station. I stayed in Barcelona which is a cheaper 'standard' room. It felt like a superior. Spanish themed CDs and DVD, Gaudi style mirror, flat screen TV, large turret windows, great Molton Brown toiletries and white bathrobes. Staff were very helpful and room service dinner first class. I will be back!
Having stayed in quite a few hotels in Edinburgh recently, I was really taken aback by the quality of the rooms and the overall stay.
The food was great, we ordered room service for breakfast and it was there within 15 minutes hot and fresh. The rooms were spotless and the mini bars well stocked and well priced.
What really made our stay was the way that every member of staff in the hotel, bars and club, seemed to take time to speak to everyone, no matter how busy it seemed to be.
This above the decor will make us return to Le Monde, as it really was genuine service at it's best that won has one us over.
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you from the Five press office to the wonderful staff at Le Monde Hotel during our stay at this year’s Edinburgh TV Festival. While a stay in this hotel truly stands out as being one of the most outstanding and unique experiences we have ever had, it was the helpfulness, attentiveness and sheer professionalism of the staff at Le Monde that made our stay at the hotel so memorable and exceptional. A truly ‘out of this world’ experience, I would not hesitate in recommending Le Monde to anyone looking to host an event or stay in one of the country’s most exclusive hotels”
“May I just say how much we all enjoyed our stay for the New Year at the splendid Le Monde. All the staff at Le Monde were most helpful and efficient both in all the bars and the hotel. Certainly a place that we would highly recommend to family and friends. Mr Billy Lowe has a place of high note and long may it continue. First class”
“Just to say what a fabulous night we had last night at Le Monde Cocktail Masterclass. We enjoyed the whole night and - the guys shaking their stuff (well the cocktail shakers) - we were in an all girl group and they all did well in looking after us, and made cocktail making look so easy!!!! They were so encouraging and wanted us to be involved. The night was real value for money - here's to more of them!!!! My friend had a great time too and said it was one of the best birthday pressies ever! I will certainly be trying my hand at making cocktails at home - roll on the barbie weather so I can impress my friends with what I have learned! Well done in organising the event! Here's to the next time.”
