Tour Day Five

A travel blog entry by astudentabroad


... there was a dispute about whether or not her body should go home with her family or be given to the medical students as they were entitled to it. Eventually the family won and she was put in a coffin and taken away on a horse and cart. As they were driving her family heard a knocking from inside the coffin, the opened the lid and up sat Maggie! Turns out that the rope used in the hanging was old so it stretched when she was hung ...

Comedy, Whiskey and Scottish history

A travel blog entry by kev_erin


... about Africa as his father is from Ghana but he is Australian and his mother is Australian. We all got included in the show as we all had worked in fast food growing up. Matt also told a funny story about his 'McDonalds' robbery training. We then went to see Ronnie Chieng who was quite amusing. He lives in Australia but he is Chinese and has grown up in Malaysia and Singapore. We were joking that we were having a family heritage night as our brother in law Clive is from ...

A Day in the Old City

A travel blog entry by djsuchomelly


... the open top of one of the buses and plugged in our headsets for the narrated tour of the old town.

First up was the Scott monument in Princes Street Garden. The monument was built to honor Scottish author Sir Walter Scott and is 200 feet high. Next we passed the statue of David Livingstone, the great explorer. Shortly after we had our first full view of the castle, but more on that later. We continued our journey through the ...

Its A Small World

A travel blog entry by hobgoblins5


... might not have been the exact path we should have taken, but it did take us to an apartment complex (which lived up to its name, it was super difficult to get out of). Eventually we escaped and found a street, and continuing on the street, we found a street sign. Finally able to get our bearings we followed the street for several minutes until we saw a church two streets from us. 'That must be it!' we cried, but the closer we got, the more it looked like it wasn't open and the name on ...

Castles of Scotland

A travel blog entry by travelbugs3


... straight from the bottle, it was strong going down and warmed me up but I don't think I could do it all the time. We then entered a room which is has the largest collection of whisky bottles in the world (over 3000) and the oldest was bottled in 1896 and all bottled in different and unique containers with none ever being opened. Rest of the day was spent trying to find a souvenir for Scotland and we finally settled on a set of bagpipes :)

    Historical Traveler Reviews Dakota Hotel Edinburgh



    Wunderschönes Design und Ausführung, tolle Apparaturen und man hat ein Bullauge im Aufzug und kann rausschauen. Die Zimmer sind sehr komfortabel, aber es gibt nicht viel Platz um Sachen wegzupacken. Die Angestellten an der Rezeption waren toll, schnell, fröhlich und hilfsbereit. Das Restaurant war exzellent, das beste Essen und Service das ich je hatte. Der einzige kleine Kritikpunkt ist, dass die Bar nicht so toll ist vom Service her. Für den Preis kann man nicht viel besser machen. Das Hotel war erst seit 4 Monaten auf, aber lief sehr gut.

    Flying High


    Beautiful design and execution, superb fixture and fittings, the

    "porthole" in the lifts gives you a chuckle. Rooms very comfortable although a little short on storage. Reception staff ouitstanding, swift, cheerful and very helpful. Restaurant excellent some of the best food and service i have encountered. the only minor criticism is that the bar service falls below the rest of the hotel. at the price I do not think this could be bettered, for a hotel that has only been open for four months it is a very mature, smooth operation.

    Very Smart 'Super Budget Hotel'


    Stayed at this place on business - excellent rooms at a great price stylish design reminds me of Malmaison.

    Grill restaurant good quality food and busy for dinner.

    Breakfast straight forward with hot food cooked to order.

    Easy to use wireless broadband.

    Everything I needed at a good price.

    Tolles Super Budget Hotel


    War hier auf Geschäftsreise. Exzellente Zimmer zu tollen Preisen mit tollem Design. Erinnert mich an Malmaison.

    Das Restaurant hatte eine gute Qualität und es war abends viel los. Das Frühstück war klasse und man konnte etwas warmes bestellen.

    Die Nutzung vom Internet war problemlos.

    Alles was ich brauchte zu einem guten Preis.

    Best value hotel


    Stunning magnificent looking sculptured hotel (faithful constructivist design) as fantastic on the outside as on the inside.

    JUST GO!


    After finding the Dakota website this place looked perfect for our wedding anniversary and it was exactly that. Perfect. This is just how you imagine and want a hotel to be. Immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, discreet and courteous staff, with an excellent and well run restaurant. The Dakota also offers excellent value for money as you could pay a lot more for this experience in lesser establishements. Can we go back next weekend please?



    Nachdem ich das Dakota auf der Webseite gesehen hatte, wusste ich das es perfekt für unseren Hochzeitstag sein würde. Perfekt. Dies Hotel ist genauso, wie man sich ein Hotel vorstellt. Makellos sauber, wunderschön dekoriert, diskrete und höfliche Angestellte und ein exzellentes , gut geführtes Restaurant. Das Dakota hat ein tolles Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis und man kann wesentlich mehr für wesentlich weniger in anderen Hotels zahlen.

    Können wir hier nächstes Wochenende bitte wieder hinfahren?



    Dies Hotel ist wunderbar. Wir waren hier um den Geburtstag meines Mannes zu feiern. Ich stimme den anderen Kritikern. Das Hotel könnte wesentlich höhere Raten für diese Zimmer verlangen. 115 Euro ist ein erstklassiges Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Die Angestellten an der Rezeption sind sehr freundlich und die Rezeption ist sehr modern. Die Zimmer sind ebenfalls sehr sauber und modern. Wir hatten eine Aussicht auf einen Zugbrücke, was schön war. Das Badezimmer war wunderschön! Das einzige was mich gestört hat war, dass die Klimaanlage recht laut war und auch nachdem wir uns bei der Rezeption beschwert haben und uns erklärt wurde wie man sie ausstellt, hat sie trotzdem Lärm gemacht. Alles in allem ein guter Aufenthalt in einem exzellenten Hotel.



    This hotel is gorgeous. We stayed here for my husbands birthday. I agree with another reviewer that they could easily charge an awful lot more for these rooms. £89 is outstanding value. Reception staff very friendly, reception area very modern and welcoming! Rooms very clean and modern. We had a view of the Rail Bridge which was nice, the bathroom was beautiful! The only thing I could say against this hotel is that the air conditioning was very noisy and even after phoning reception and being advised as to how to turn it off it still made a racket nearly all night long! All in all a good stay in an excellent hotel.



    Me and my partner decided to celebrate our anniversary at the Dakota Forth Bridge, we live locally and have watched this amazing building take shape over the months.
