The hotel is located very centrally. Arriving by train you are within a very short walk to the hotel. The hotel is within easy access to all the sites in central Edinburgh. Staff are very pleasant and helpful.Facilities within the hotel are very good with a small swimming pool, sauna and steam room. We had booked into the Spa but... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights on a bed and breakfast and pre theatre menu booking. (Our second stay at this hotel) After a brief walk from the station check in was quick and easy. Asked if we needed assistance with our luggage and we declined. Stayed in room 815 ~ a good room at the back as quiet... More

Purely by luck (and TripAdvisor), we found this wonderful hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were super comfortable and immaculately clean. Breakfasts in the beautiful restaurant were terrific - great choices and lovely service. The icing on the cake, though, was the fabulous vacation. It was so easy to get around the city from this location - from an... More

Though I booked an economy room. Got an upgrade when I told them that I didn't liked the economy room. The upper category rooms was upto my satisfaction. Quite over priced hotel, they charged me around £150 per night for economy room. You have free parking here, but the hotel is quite far from city centre. You would need to... More

Room at rear of hotel : rather noisy from traffic despite being on eighth floor with double glazed windows .Rooms are rather small but comfortable. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom facilities ok. Breakfast is fine though not very tasty bread/pastries

Although we had some difficulty in finding it, that was mostly because of bad indications. The Hotel is great, staff is excelent, location is very very good, breakfast is fine, very good wifi. Nothing to complain about.

The Apex was chosen by us for its proximity to the train station and it proved to be a convenient location. It was within easy walking distance of Princes Street and the Old Town also. The rooms were a nice size and the staff was very helpful with connecting us to wifi, restaurant suggestions, directions, etc. The room was adequate... More

The Apex hotel is located a few minutes from the Edinburgh train station so an easy & short walk away. It is centrally located to all of the tourist attractions. I stayed on the 10th floor and the room was a nice size, clean, had a very comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom was spacious with fluffy towels with high... More

We chose this hotel because of its location , air conditioning which has been important during the recent heat wave, and their willingness to store our luggage for several days when we took a 3 day tour of Scotlad. It is pricey but we feel we are getting excellent service. The room is very comfortable with refrigerator, free wifi kettle,... 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.
