I have only very positive things to say about this hotel. We arrived on early flight and got checked into room at 10am! The tram directly from airport stops half a minute down the street! The room was huge with big comfortable beds. Lady in reception was lovely and friendly. Location was brilliant, great shops, cafés and restaurants all very... More

Stopped over for one night for the xmas market. Hotel is in great location and is a good price for this time of year! The room was large with a high ceiling and a kingsize bed which was very comfortable. An old rustic style which felt homely Would recommend the breakfast too great choice.

After the arthropods in Lancaster resulting in power cuts no internet access and no mobile signal and no trains north at all for over 30hours this establishment compounded a nightmare by refusing to allow us to change a booking as not enough notice was given. How did the think we could let them know, carrier pigeon. We contacted them as... More

The room was massive we were a group of 4 adults and we had plenty space. The beds were big and comfortable. And the bathroom was... More

Below average hotel. Wouldn't recommend staying more than one night, and only out of necessity. Felt more like a hostel than a hotel. The breakfast was just ok- not exactly the highest quality, but you get what you pay for. The only positives are the location and the friendly staff.

The first thing to hit me about this place was the smell, unpleasant and indefineable. The lack of a decent pillow was astonishing. Quite simply a small square that had to be bolstered with rolled towels. The shared facilities were not pristinely clean. The only positive about this place was it's location. Find somewhere else and spend the extra if... More

The York House Hotel has a good location and is well priced but has some short-comings. The first is that there is only wifi in the lobby area and even there the connection isn't very good. The second is that it is right next to the bus station so there is a lot of traffic noise if your room backs... More

Recent reviews seem pretty harsh to us. The location of this hotel is, to us, it's best point but that is not to say that there is nothing else to recommend it. We had a very cheery Italian welcome on our arrival and were allocated a room and checked in immediately a little before the 14:00 hrs checkin time. The... More

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
