I spent two days at the Staycity, didn't know what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised! The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the apartment that my friends and I stayed in was excellent! The hotel is very nicely placed; not too close to the city centre, but also not too far (10 min. walk). Very close to a local Tesco, so any extra commodities needed could very easily be purchased (1 min. walk). They also have a secure underground car park, which was conveniently located below the hotel, so we were able to take lifts directly to our room floor from the car park. However, the use of the car park is £12/night.
There were only two fairly minor drawbacks... Our shower cubicle had a fixed glass panel that covered only half of the shower opening, so water did occasionally fall on the floor when we took showers, but it's nothing that a simple shower mat could not fix. The second drawback was the WiFi - sadly during our stay, connecting to the WiFi was often-times a struggle... When we were able to access the WiFi, there were no issues, but the initial effort of connecting to the WiFi was not fun. But again, these were fairly minor drawbacks, and did not have any real bearing on the enjoyment of our stay.
Without a doubt, I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and will certainly be staying there again if the opportunity arises!
This hotel is easy to access via the aiport shuttle, which is £7.50 return and runs very frequently. The airport shuttle stops directly outside the hotel. The staff are very friendly and are more than willing to give advice on places of interest, bars and restaurants and how to get around. Edinburgh is very easy to get around via bus, we only used taxi's after having late evening drinks. The Dunstane have two sites which are across the road from one another. We stayed in the second site which across the road from the main site. The room was of average size, it was very clean and comfortable. The only issue I had with the room is that the walls appear to be quite thin and we could hear the people above us, if we had been staying longer than two nights then this may have been a problem, however as we had jam packed days we didn't let it bother us. Overall a lovely hotel, i would definitely recommend.
Only minutes from the cosmopolitan Princes Street and the major city attractions, the Dunstane House Hotel, Edinburgh …More
Staff were friendly. The apartment had all the cooking equipment needed, and in the lounge area a multi channel TV, DVD, Internet connection and I pod dock. Access to the apartments is secure, and at the time, the block we were in was very quiet.
Getting provisions was convenient with supermarkets five minutes walk away, and they were a variety of restaurants nearby too. The hotel provides breakfast.
We walked to the Castle in Edinburgh in ten minutes, and then down the Royal Mile for a very entertaining Sunday afternoon with street performers and great shopping.
Close to center and the castle approx 15 mins walk , and 5 mins walk to Hay market station. The room was very clean and comfortable and cleaners come every morning. The only down side is the stairs which could be a problem for some people. We enjoyed our stay there and would certainly stay there again.
This was our first time renting an apartment instead of a hotel room, and we loved it! Fountain Court made us feel right at home with clean, beautiful rooms and amenities. We were located in downtown Edinburgh off the canal -- quiet, but within walking distance to tons of restaurants, stores, and even Edinburgh Castle!
Overall a lots of character and quirky. Good location 10 minute stroll to the heart of new town CBD, and plenty of shops in the immediate area. The wifi is only available downstairs in public areas, not in rooms upstairs which these days was very disappointing and inconvenient. Friendly helpful staff.
Home to one of Edinburgh's busiest railway stations, Haymarket is situated in the western part of Scotland's capital city. A war memorial stands at the crossroads in the heart of Haymarket, dedicated to players of Heart of Midlothian F.C., who died in both World Wars. The Water of Leith Walkway is nearby for those wanting to view the beautiful city from the riverside.
