Edinburgh hotels are not cheap but at least with the Hotel du Vin you get pleasant surroundings, pleasant and helpful staff and a reasonable location. Car parking as in many places in Edinburgh is an issue though the hotel offer a discount on a nearby long term carpark. Rooms were clean with coffee and bottled water included plus extensive paid...

I really couldn't recommend the hotel du vin in Edinburgh enough. Rooms are fabulous, staff super attentive and the food within the bistro fantastic. The hotel is in a wonderful location, close to all the main sites in the city. As I have said before, you have to stay here!

The last time we visited this restaurant we liked the food but were badly let down by the service however I was assured by a friend that they had upped their game and it was worth a second chance. it was not!

I stayed in the Laroche room and it was absolutely lovely. A very comfortable bed, fantastic shower, great TV and lovely coffee. I really like that you get fresh milk for your coffee - I can't think of many hotels that do this. The staff were very efficient and friendly, my stay went very smoothly. I'm sure I'll be back...

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.
