Stayed here for three nights and wasn't disappointed. Met by friendly welcoming staff and our room was wonderful. Had everything and more than we expected. The staff at this hotel are excellently done really do make your stay. The pool was fab after a long day walking around. I can't recommend this hotel enough. Truly a hidden gem in Edinburgh....

The price is amazing for what you get here. Our room was beautiful, bed was so comfy and the food was wonderful as... More

We loved this hotel. The staff were lovely, the room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. The food at breakfast and later in the day was excellent, and the bar was great. The on tap beer in the bar was delicious as well.

My partner and I have just checked out of the Apex Waterloo and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We booked a superior room as we like to have a bath when we stay away as we don't have one at home but upon arrival in room we discovered we didn't have one. After popping back down to reception to request a... 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.
