Stayed at the Dunstane City on our recent trip to Edinburgh. Small, quiet boutique hotel with a young, friendly staff. We were on the first floor, close to registration desk & heard little noise. Added bonus....the wonderful restaurant! Excellent breakfasts & delicious dinners! Try the lamb!!!!

I thought I was booking at the partner hotel across the street, but wasn't disappointed to find myself in the city hotel. Both buildings are lovely and the decor is very nice. My room was pretty, clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. It was also very quiet and peaceful. The hotel is very well situated, not quite in the hustle and bustle... More

We booked two rooms for four nights 27th-31st July 2014 at the Dunstane City Hotel. We had high expectations and on first impressions the hotel appeared to be very nice. However it went downhill very fast, as soon as we entered the building it was extremely hot but the staff member stated this was normal and that the rooms were... More

Really nice staff, lovely hotel, lovely room and nice food! I really enjoyed our stay there and i will stay there again if i'm in Edinburgh. It's really close to Princess Street and with the day tickets from lothian buses you can get back for a quick easy shower and back to town. What more is there to say? Just... More

The rooms in this hotel are beautiful - the decor is stunning and the rooms are large as are the bathrooms. The hotel is very comfortble to the point we did not want to leave our rooms. The only gripe I had, which is minor, is that there were two of us in the room in terms of the toiletaries,... More

hello there Thank you for your feedback, especially regarding breakfast. I did think we had laid it out clearly with the left hand side priced at £10.95 for Continental and the Right hand side at £13.95 for hot food. We dont price the dishes individually so as not to confuse the issue and you are welcome to order as much... More

We stayed at the dunstane city hotel for 2 nights. We were a bit unsure when we first booked in because we were sent across the main road from the reception but when we got to our rooms on the ground floor we found them to be very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The staff were superb, very friendly and... More

I am torn with this hotel, my partner booked this hotel as a Christmas gift to me and he had booked the Dunstane HOUSE hotel however upon arrival we were sent across the road to the Dunstane City, maybe my partner was mixed up but the booking did say Dunstane house. Anyway... The receptionist at the City hotel was friendly... More

Loved the location and value of the Dunstane - 10 minute walk to the city, perhaps 25 minutes to Edinburgh Castle. Also on bus lines. Service was perfect and the bar and restaurant were good. After some juggling with the front desk, I was assigned comfortable room. Because the Dunstane is an older hotel, made up of two very different... More
