The staff were charming and helpful then it all goes down hill ... The rooms are tired and worn . The overall impression of the suites is one of neglect and lack of TLC . The cost is extremely high for such a low standard of accommodation ... Maybe the proximity to the city centre is where he premium comes... More

The location was perfect for our touring needs in the city and close to our tour company for our tours out to the highlands. The staff onsite was super friendly and helpful. The room was ready early and upgraded for free. There is a cool terrace on the roof. Would have spent more time up there but it was quite... More

From the outside it's not appealing but OMG... The rooms are spacious, clean and very central to everything. Easy access from Haymarket and Waverley station. One cannot complain, if you do, you got issues. Highly recommend👍👍👍

We booked the princes street suites for a trip to Edinburgh with our little boy (20 months). The cost was good for a 2 night stay, it was clean, in a good location and staff were friendly. In short, a great experience of accommodation for a family city break. Location... Easy walking distance. Super close to the train station and... More

What a pleasant surprise this turn out to be, accommodation favored & referred by my daughter & her husband who frequents Edinburgh. I love the fact that they have a spacious 3-bedroom apartment, with a bathroom each, a spacious livingroom & hallway to boot! And though we didn't really need it, I like that there's a laundry room with washer,... More

Don't quite know where to start with this one. Front desk staff got us off to a good start, very friendly and we checked in an hour early. We had a 3 bed apartment on the third floor, naturally it was huge and thought wow this will be great. The suite was clean and tidy but like others have said... More

I visited Edinburgh on a business trip earlier this year and stayed at these apartments. Check-in was not the fastest and the reception area can get busy, however the staff were helpful and friendly. They have a free storage area for baggage which is very helpful. The apartments are only a 5 minute walk from Waverley train station and very... More

We rented a 1 bedroom apartment which was finished to a decent standard with nice views overlooking the train station and bridge. Furnishings are modern and everything was clean and light; however, the experience was hampered by the significantly damaged plaster on the walls and nails sticking out the wall in the bedroom. Improving small details such as having a... More

Stayed here on two occasions recently 3 bedroom for 1 night and 1 bedroom for 4 nights. The location is excellent for everything in central Edinburgh and also ideal if you want a long walk to Arthur's seat and further a field.

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.
