Standards dropped for such a chain who promote high standards Upgrade was pathetic the room was the size of a cupboard Dusty and felt grubby Breakfast was good despite the very unfriendly staff I moved hotel for my second night The du vin is no longer a high spec place to stay Have bigger and cleaner rooms...

I love the Hotel du Vin chain and this did not fail to impress. The room was amazingly clean, the bath in the window was stunning as was the monsoon shower. The staff were very friendly. My only criticism was an extremely rude female tour guide who stood a crowd of people in front of us and continued to talk... More

Location wise, it's in a great spot. 5 minutes walk from the Royal Mile or the Grassmarket. Yes, there's no car parking, but the NCP car park is only a few minutes walk away and you can park on the double yellows outside the hotel and drop your bags off. Rooms are of typical HDV standard as are the staff... More

Stayed here for a weekend and I have to say the service was outstanding. We were made to feel very special during our stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Booked for a meal one of the nights, which was beautiful. We had a beautiful wine which was recommended to compliment our meal. The room was lovely too.... More

What a fantastic hotel, hidden away and a great conversion of an old building. Stayed for one night, all the staff we encountered were so nice and helpful! We stayed in a room overlooking the courtyard, really comfy bed and and amazing shower, very clean and tidy. We ate in the restaurant for dinner - steak was cooked to perfection... More

Have been here a few times and never had any issues, not so great this time! Order taken swiftly but then waited 40 minutes for our plates to be cleared by the sommelier who then brought the dessert menus! Not sure where the waiting staff had disappeared to as the restaurant wasn't full. When we did eventually pay, we mentioned... More

This was a one night stay for work. This is a great hotel, comfortable, clean and modern. The sleep quality was good, and breakfast eggs benedict hit the spot! The real asset was the excellent service by the staff here, they do go the extra mile.......Loved the decor, unusual pieces and interesting. Good wifi. I would stay again

The first thing to note is that there is no parking at this hotel. You have to park on a yellow line in a busy one way street opposite a busy bus stop. The reception is well inside the hotel so you risk being towed when you go in. The reception come out to help with you bags and direct... More

Dear RichardMiles Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Hotel du Vin Edinburgh.

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.
