I received a great discount from hdv by email and for £99 we had a 2 night stay here in a standard room. fantastic. The hotel is in a great place and the building is lovely. Rooms are always exceptionally clean although id say the rooms were on the small side and the bathroom was a tight squeeze. But for... More

Off the Royal Mile but not on an overly busy street. Great rooms, nice bar, friendly staff. Courtyard rooms are definitely a plus. Did the superior double which has a great shower and a nice amount of space. Easy to walk to the main tourist areas.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two separate nights around a Highlands excursion. The rooms are quite nice and have plenty of room. In the first room the bathroom floor was heated! Nice touch. The showers had plenty of water pressure. The hotel stored one of our bags while we were gone which was a big help.... More

I received a great welcome here after a VERY long day travelling from the south of England. All the staff were friendly and looked after me. The room was superb, the bars (I tried more than one!) were very comfortable and the service excellent. A great meal with attentive service. Definitely a location to revisit. Highly recommended

I was brought up not to judge books by their covers, but sadly all too often this is exactly what happens at hotels like this. As a young solo traveller in a well-appointed (albeit pricy) hotel, some of the staff were lovely to me but some really obviously looked down their noses at me and treated me like the poor... More

I am never disappointed with hotel du vin. This time no exception - except the parking. The hotel itself is a wonderful converted building around an outside courtyard. Rooms, service and food all up to normal du vin standard. Car parking however is a bit of a pain. There is no legal parking even whilst checking in then you are... More

I mucked up booking dates so I had to upgrade, room was lovely as to be expected at the price - £205; free standing bath in main room, with drench shower and a wonderful bed. Breakfast was very good. Service impeccable. The hotel is superbly constructed within this very old building which previously was an asylum; perhaps that's why I... More

From the moment of signing in it was a relaxed atmosphere, we were well at home in the old asylum and it's rabbit warren of passages to the room. Ours was on the second floor overlooking the courtyard and was very quite even though the courtyard was is use for the smokers. The room was a standard room and was... More

Fantastic weekend at Hotel du Vin in Edinburgh - comfortable bedroom (no need to upgrade despite the emailed offers) overlooking the courtyard with good en suite shower/bathroom (really hot water!). Staff friendly and very professional, for dinner it is better value to upgrade from prix fixe to a la carte (if you are on the dinner, bed and breakfast deal)... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
