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)...

Maybe I was expecting too much but the most special thing about the room was the quirky name. Don't get me wrong, it was a very comfortable room but I expected more for the price. The ensuite was ok but small. I did love having the bottle of wine in the room instead of water - and at a reasonable...

Spent a couple of nights here whilst at a conference. I remember this building from my childhood and was fascinated at how creatively it had been transformed into this quirky hotel. We had a very good deal and loved every minute of it. Fabulous room and bathroom. Very enjoyable breakfast. Excellent situation.

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.

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...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood 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-flavoured 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.
