Booked this hotel for my sister-in-law and her boyfriend for a present while we stayed across the road in the Premier Inn and wished we'd booked ourselves in as well. The room we booked at the Dakota hotel was only £35 more than the Premier Inn but the difference in quality was worth a lot more. If you didn't know the prices you would think it was 4 or 5 times more expensive. The hotel doesn't disappoint from the photos and there is an immediate wow factor as soon as you walk in the door. Reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful, it had everything you could possibly need and was very stylish. The bar had a great choice of amazing cocktails although drinks were expensive. We only found a few minor negatives. The bar wasn't very busy but the service offered didn't really live up to the rest of the hotels standards. It was quite hard getting service, they were grumpy and we had to ask for sugar twice and a bill three times. Not much of a view from the window, in fact the surrounding area is not particularly attractive. Finally what with the roads and traffic in Edinburgh it isn't very easy or quick to get in and out of the centre. However I would highly recommend this hotel and will defintely stay again.
