This hotel exceeded my expectations for what a Scottish holiday could be during the Christmas market season. Exceptional service, a peaceful and clean room with all the amenities, and a fabulous restaurant staff. Every request or question was me with an inventive and enthusiastic attitude and a smile. If you are looking for affordability mixed with class and an attention... More

We had a night in Edinburgh and stayed here again. As always excellent room standard - warm, clean, well-appointed etc. Very comfortable; we had a very good night’s sleep. Not the best location if you are intent on just hitting the shops in the New Town. Nevertheless we would highly recommend.

Needless to say we love Hotel du Vin as a brand and have stayed in a few HdV's. This was our third stay at the Edinburgh HdV and it was great - as always. The rooms we had were well positioned, and had everything you'd expect. I love the Nespresso coffee machines. Such a nice touch. I had worked a... More

My wife and I recently found ourselves needing to be in Edinburgh for a wedding. Having frequented Hotel Du Vin's previously in Brighton, Tunbridge Wells and Winchester, it seemed a natural choice to stay in the Edinburgh HDV too. However, the hotel really is out of kilter with the other hotels. For starters, the rooms are small. I know it's... More

The Hotel is fabulously central and the staff were professional. My double bedroom Chateau Bauduc was pretty small and the air-conditioning (vital to keep the stuffy temperature down) was noisy. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast on the second day of three was disappointing as the bacon was underdone as was the toast and indeed the sausage -... More

I've always loved staying at the Hotel Du Vin hotels however their Edinburgh based was hugely disappointing, the rooms were ridiculously small and over priced.

We spent 3 nights here in late October 2014, and although the location, facilities and staff were great, there were a couple of things that were not what we would have expected from a hotel that isn't cheap. The most irritating thing was that the lights were too dim in the room and it was difficult to read anything. I... 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.
