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

Poor and tired decor, no mattress or pillow covers, curtains and nets falling off the track so privacy not assured, shabby bathroom with mouldy grout and dirty walls. Two of the four days there was no servicing of the room, breakfasts very poor. Our room was at the back so we were disturbed early most mornings by bin men emptying... More

I booked this hotel at very short notice, and arrived within 10 minutes of booking online, my room was already ready. I couldn't believe how comfortable this Hotel Mattress was. I had a really pleasant stay here, the staff were very friendly, wonderful view out of my room and really good value for the location.

Unfortunately, it turned to be one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed. The reception is good and rather friendly. 15 min to walk to Roayl Mile. But this is the only advantage. Very very small and uncomfortable room, shabby furniture and extremely uncomfortable bed. The ceiling lamp didnt work, the air in the room is very dusty and odd.... More

Very much a guest house rather than a hotel. Tired reception and hallway. Bedroom with a tiny electric shower. OK, but not great for the price. Breakfast starts at 8am which really does not work for a business trip. My request for a coffee was grudgingly granted. I will probably stay elsewhere next time.

Despite some bad reviews, I believe this B&B is very nice and affordable. The room was very cute, we were to the top floor on the front street side which was a little noisy but ok. We were actually into the centre, so a lot of places were easily reachable !!! There were few carelessness (for example peeling paints on... More

Stayed at the York for a couple of nights and you get what it says on the tin ,nothing to flashy but very adequate ,traditional breakfasts and comfortable accommodation . Close to all modes of transport ,bus stop over the road and a tram stop right outside which can take you all the way to the airport if required. 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.
