Hotel du Vin & Bistro Edinburgh

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms were comfortable and clean. Lighting in the room was dim. All the rooms face a courtyard seating area that can get noisy at times. The hotel staff was helpful and pleasant . Overall enjoyed our hotel experience.

Very comfortable beds, very clean, warm room. Convenient location.

Hotel du Vin is well located in the heart of Edinburgh, it's cultural activities, restaurants and bars. It was an easy walk to most everything we wanted to do. The Staff was welcoming throughout our stay. The upstairs cocktail lounge is restful and it was fun watching the bartender mix his potions! I requested a room upgrade and unfortunately got it. There are no room Numbers, rather they are given names of wines -- and not the normal variety. I found it hard to remember CATINA ZAPATA. There are many stairs to get to the rooms - hard on the knees. NOTE: While quite lovely, Do Not request Zapata unless you are completely uninhibited. The room is totally open - from bed to bathroom - meaning no separating walls or doors. If your partner is in bed, they are subject to the lights of the bathroom and the fun of seeing you brush your teeth, undress for the shower or bath, and will also be privy to sounds of using the bathroom. A glass door to the toilet doesn't go from floor to there's that. I had to ask for a second washcloth. I had to ask for foam pillows twice. There was no outlet in the bathroom for a hairdryer; I dried my hair next to the bed sans mirror. Lots of negatives (for me) with this room, yet the hotel was clean, nice, and a bit accommodating as they gave me back one night's upgrade cost. THumb's up to the hotel...NOT the Zapata room!!

Well located. Clean and stylish. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Would definitely stay here again!

Staff helpful and kind, had an upgrade on room, spacious, reflected Edinbugh in style. Amenities like plenty of fresh water. Recommend and would stay again.

Hotel met our expectations in every way. Room was small but really well set out.

Friendly and accommodating staff, spacious and comfortable rooms, plus a welcoming front courtyard and bistro to sit and have a pint/read a book. Highly recommend! It was the perfect place to spend my last night in Edinburgh.

Charming hotel with small rooms. Nice bistro/bar/wine collection. Very convenient location to Royal Mile and the University. Downside: no exercise facility. Would return without a doubt.
