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

I think this is probably one of those hotels where the price that you paid for your room is going to directly affect the view you have of it. For me, I felt like the £50 a night for a Friday and Saturday was not really that bad at all. I stayed in a twin room so really I paid... More

This hotel is fine for a budget hotel. The location is great. Everything else is you-get-what-you-pay-for. Our stay there was unfortunately at an extravagant cost due to Hogmanay (and our alternative accommodation cancelling 6 weeks out so we didn't have much choice). Without an event on I think the cost would be more acceptable. The only gripe I had was... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights for its location as it was the closest one to the royal mile that we could get at the time. Although you still had to walk a fair way to the Mile it was ok as Edinburgh is so visually exciting. It was mid August, the Fringe festival was on and it was... More

I spent two nights here in November 2014. In general, my stay was fine. Easy to drag a suitcase to and from the train station and find my way to the Royal Mile. Pros Excellent location. Reasonable price. Clean room. Cons The free wi-fi is ONLY in the lobby and never worked while I was there. I commiserated with other... More

The host is lovely! She was ver friendly and to me, that is very important. Even more important than the room. Okay,my room was not the best, even kind of depressing, but I think it is a fair price, given the location. I paid £37 for a single room, English breakfast included. The only negative thing for me was 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.
