The apartment we were in was large and roomy. The apartment staff were very knowledgeable. I would definitely stay here again. The only negative was the dryer not working and we were counting on this to clean and dry our clothes mid-trip. This caused lots of problems and I had to keep getting up in the middle of the night...

A bit expensive but we had a one bedroom apartment which was huge. Quiet and clean, great location, walking distance to most attractions. Staff very friendly. Washer and dryer in apartment. Would definitely pay the extra to stay again. The rooftop terrace was amazing for some great city and scenic shots.

Right downtown, so close to Waverly Station you can hear the train announcements. Apartments are spacious with TV, kitchens and we had a laundry machine too. There is a rooftop as well with great views of the city. Rates are not inexpensive but overall a better option than booking 2 hotel rooms for a family plus you can save money... More

We had booked an apartment and when we arrived they'd allocated us one on the ground floor with a very depressing view of a brick wall opposite. We asked to be moved up the building and they did so without quibble . The second apartment was very well appointed and the location is perfect for sightseeing and socialising. There appeared...

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.
