CoDE Pod Hostels - THE LoFT 4 stars

New Town, Edinburgh

Code Hostel Edinburgh is set on Rose Street North Lane, just a short walk from Princes Street. It offers modern interiors within a red brick-clad period building. It offers rooms with bunk beds, a shared kitchen and a communal area. We had a very nice stay here: the room was warm, beds were intimate since they were all facing the windows, we had all the facilities we needed and the location was close to almost everything. Thumbs up for Axel and his colleagues @ the reception who answered promptly to any request.

Dakota Edinburgh 4 stars

Queensferry

The 4-star Dakota Edinburgh is a modern hotel with an award-winning restaurant and free Wi-Fi. Edinburgh city centre is just a 10-minute train journey from the building and the hotel offers a courtesy shuttle service from Edinburgh Airport. I was very impressed by the sheer beauty of the decoration - I have never seen a more efficiently designed bathroom, unexpected matching colors for throw pillows, framed pictures, chairs... Creative solutions for wardrobe and luggage holders, immaculate fixtures from door to window to electrical outlets. And, oh boy, how comfortable it all was. And how nice and efficient and charming the front desk people turned out to be. Breakfast shall be missed, that's for sure. And, going back to Edinburgh I know where I am staying. I do own a small hotel in Arraial do Cabo, Brazil. When I grow up, I'd like to be a Dakota Hotel myself. Sniff...
