The hotel itself is very nice, the rooms are the typical European size but very comfortable. The restaurant is very expensive but there are so many great restaurants within walking distance so that is not a problem. It lacks the real Scottish feel and friendliness. It seems cold and stiff which is unusal for Scotland. I would think it is...

Just returned from a lovely break at this great hotel. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean, our breakfasts were excellent, we ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was first class.

The room was excellent, well equipped and spacious. I did think that the mini bar sundries were over priced . The bed was very comfortable and conjusive to a good nights sleep. Breakfast was served by very friendly staff and a good selection on the menu.

Really lovely hotel, fab rooms and great service! One thing I would say £17 for breakfast that's not included in the original price was a bit of a rip off! If you're stay at Hotel du Vin go out for breakfast, there's loads of great breakfast spots in the lanes for a quarter of the price!

This is a lovely hotel in a great location. Would really recommend it ! Our room was great. The only thing that let them down was the service in the bistro & also the "whisky den" - apart from that - its a great little hotel !

Stayed here a number of times on business. Small rooms are very small, so opt for a larger room. Nice Nespresso machines and good comfy beds. The larger rooms have the usual bath and/or shower in the room itself, so not great for families in some cases. Food and drink is very good. Staff are great although breakfast staff could...

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.
