Was a great stay. Good location. Lovely staff and very good bistro and restaurant on site

Terrific central location for Fringe. Great staff!

The staff was very friendly! Everything was great-delicious food! The only thing was the shower would periodically leak in the middle of the night and awaken me.

Room was a bit small, but the tub and shower were amazing.

I loved this property. The wine theme was a unique touch. It was ideally situated between the University and the royal mile. The room was well furnished and the bed comfortable. The heated floor in the bathroom and the heated towel racks were lovely touches. The front desk staff were very helpful. The only thing of which to be aware is the late start of breakfast. If you are an early riser or like to get an early start you may not want to include breakfast in your rate. Overall a wonderful hotel.

Beautiful boutique hotel. We loved having a glass of wine, sandwich, and and bar snacks in first floor bar. Lovely courtyard entrance to property. Only issue was that I found the bed to be less than comfortable. Otherwise it’s a gem!

Excellent location in Old Town Edinburgh. Easy walking distance to the Royal Mile and the Museum of Scotland. The staff was outstanding and the food in the restaurant was delicious and well presented.

Our experience was absolutely perfect! The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and so accommodating, our room was warm, cozy and romantic. The building itself is beautiful and in a great location for walking and seeing everything. I would go back here in a heartbeat, and will be recommending it to friends! Thank you for making our holiday absolutely perfect!

Wonderful hotel experience. Walk out the door to tons of choices for Edinburgh life. Heated floor in the bathroom, great food or lounge on the patio. Pleasant helpful staff. Came back for 3 more nights after needing one room on short notice. Hope to be back again.

It is expensive during Tattoo- everything is Local is perfect, close to Royal Mile but tucked away on a quiet street We ate at the restaurant- the food was very good, lovely setting Bed was lumpy, pillows had no stuffing in them Hard to sleep with the gin garden right below us. Saturday was horrible, noise didn't stop until 12:30 pm So grateful we got into our room when we arrived from our international flight

We stayed here the last week of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This was my second stay at the Hotel Du Vin. The location is great, only a short walk to the Royal Mile. My only complaint is with the wait staff in the Bistro Restaurant in the hotel. I had received several emails prior to our trip about special dining offers in the restaurant, but the wait staff had no idea what I was talking about even though there were flyers regarding the special offers on the main desk in the lobby. After having dinner there the night of our arrival, we only ate breakfast there the rest of our stay. At breakfast we sat by another couple who had waited over 20 minutes for tea and coffee. That same morning our table had no cups and saucers. When our tea and coffee was delivered, I asked the waitress for cups. She never brought them. I finally got up an retrieved some from an unused table. The food in the restaurant is good, but the service isn't. Other than that, our stay was great,

The building and rooms are excellent, clean, modern and beautiful. Bathrooms were pristine. The location is really ideal. My only critique is that they need more wait staff. We twice left the outdoor dining area after waiting for 15 minutes for someone to notice us or come take an order. Maybe we were just there at very busy times, but the outdoor area seems pretty consistently busy.

We loved staying at Hotel du Vin. This is a great location for several museums, the grass market and restaurants. The sightseeing bus stopped just one street over. There is no elevator above the second floor, but this was only a problem for us checking in and out because we had 2 heavy suitcases. I would still recommend his beautiful hotel to anyone.

Its an easy 1/3 of a mile walk to the royal mile or a half block walk to the Scottish National Museum. On the street behind the Hotel is a pub called The Sandy Belle that has folk music every night. If you play you can probably join in there. We loved the location. The 27 Bus stops out front. And breakfast was decent. What more do you need?

Stayed at the hotel for four nights and we were very satisfied. Staff from the moment we arrived were extraordinary. Every person went out of their way to make sure your stay was pleasant. Hotel facilities were all very good. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Nicely retrofit into an old building, with all the modern conveniences. Plenty of hot water in the shower and bath, beds were comfortable and heating / ac was controlled in the rooms. Restaurant and lounge were also very good. Food was delicious and prices were reasonable. Wait staff, like all others in the hotel, were friendly and attentive. Outdoor courtyard for drinks or al fresco dining. Very nice and we will definitely return.

Several problems- the first was that I booked a "Superior King room with bath". The bath and shower were actually in the bedroom with no privacy (no partition or curtain, etc) which would be fine for a couple but I was sharing the room with a teenage daughter who was not happy about the situation either. That should really be made clear on the booking end. One assumes the "bath" is a room ensuite. Second, the air conditioning/heating unit in the room did not work. This was during a small heat wave and the room was too warm for sleeping. Third, the smoke alarm went off early in the morning for no reason. All in all a pretty terrible value for $400 a night. Would definitely not recommend or stay there again. Also, for anyone with mobility problems- rooms are accessed by a fairly complicated combination of corriders, stairs and elevator. Upside- the restaurant is good.

We loved Hotel du Vin. Reception was extremely welcoming, the decor was beautiful, the room was clean and comfortable, the location was perfect for getting around the city and to sights, restaurants and transportation, and the price was right. We would definitely stay here again.
