          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.

          Amazing amazing value. You pay the same as a Holiday Inn Express you get a 4 to 5 star hotel with sublime food and service and magnificent reception spaces. An absolute treat from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave.

          This has to be the best concept hotel and the best value of any of the 72 four and five star hotels that I have stayed in over the last 5 years (yes I've counted).

          Owned by the people who started and ran One Devonshire Gardens in Glasgow and the Malmaison chain, this leaves them standing.

          If you want to stay a night at a hotel just for the sheer pleasure of being pampered for peanuts then try this one. It's a good reason to visit Scotland!

          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.

          Upon our arrival we were warmly greated by the reception staff, the lobby area was outstanding! modern and contemporary but warm and comfortable. the rooms were in one word amazing! a far cry from the normal Travelodge or Holiday Inn. Large beds, modern furnishings and an exceptional bathroom. We were also lucky enough to have a beautiful view of the Forth Road bridge from our room which was lovely.

          We had booked a table in the grill for later that evening and as they knew it was our anniversary we were treated to free champagne!! little personal touches like this really made our stay special!! the menu mainly focuses on seafood but there is something there for everyone, our dinner was lovely and the service of the staff who were rushed off their feet was something impressive.

          I was very impressed with my stay at the Dakota and will be returning in the future, i can see why it would appeal to a wide variety of people and at those prices the market is huge. being situated 15 minutes from edinburgh city centre and having the local amenities of South Queensferry not 5 minutes away there is plenty to do. I cannot find any faults.

          Goodluck to the newest Dakota im sure your going to go from strength to strength!!! xx

          Veel tijd op de weg doorgebracht. In Leeds nog snel een stop gedaan bij de ruïnes van een 13e eeuwse abdij genaamd 'Kirkstall Abbey'. Met zijn gotische uitstraling echt een prachtstuk. Tegen het avondeten kwamen we eindelijk aan in Edinburgh, Schotland. We hebben een hotel net buiten het centrum in queensferry. Omdat we hier 5 nachten …

During the first loop we learned some things about Princes Street Garden that tainted my view of the heavenly green area. Apparently, before it was Princes Street Garden, it was Loch Nor (a lake). However, plumbing being quite the problem in the1700s, the locals would dump their sewage into this lake. In addition to waste, dead bodies were deposited here. And many of these bodies ...

Then it was time to board our train for the journey back to Glasgow. The ride home was longer than this morning's outward leg, due to the train going at a slower speed due to many extra stops which we didn't have this morning. I am guessing it was an express run earlier today for our outward leg. After an enjoyable train ...

We did a hop-on hop-off tour to get a feel for the city then had dinner and returned to our B&B about 8:30pm.

          ... the show before was running 30 minutes late. After enjoying a cold pint we made our way to the show which was Great. The band was fantastic, keys/conductor, drums, bass, guitar, trumpet, sax and bone. 5 cast members, two blues brothers, 2 girls and a cab Calloway performer. I can see why it has been running at the festival for a bunch of years. The show ended around midnight and this is where I really got a perspective of what the festival was like. We made our ...
