In Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, this Hotel Du Vin has uniquely styled bedrooms in a former city asylum. At the hotel’s heart is a French Bistro, serving produce from the Lothian region. A Plasma TV, Egyptian linen and luxury private bathroom is featured in each elegant room in this impressive building. Many rooms retain signature original features and roll top baths. Within the 4-star Hotel Du Vin Edinburgh is the chic Bistro Du Vin. Berwick lamb and pork and quality produce sourced from local suppliers is served in the relaxed French-style dining room. Guests can relax in the mezzanine bar, or sample a range of fine wines from around the globe in the Laroche tasting room. A walk-in humidor stocks an extensive range of luxury cigars. Edinburgh’s famous castle is 10 minutes’ walk away, while the shops of Princes Street are just a few minutes’ stroll further along.

This is our guests' favourite part of Edinburgh, according to independent reviews.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.4 for a two-person trip.
