We stayed at apartment with 5 bedrooms, kitchen and lots of room to spend time. 3 toalets and many tv's. In addition to all of this free wifi. Apartment was in great condition. When going to airport it is more than easy to step out and tram to airport and if you prefer bus the station is nearby. Good selection... More

This b&b is a basic but comfortable place. The staff are so helpful and really friendly. It's clean and perfect for short stay. 2mins walk to centre, castle , cinemas, eating places. The only down side is there are a lot of stairs if your at the top, no lift. You have to park in multi storey car park at... More

Worst stay EVER! The place is literally crumbling down! The only spot where you get Wi-fi is in their ridiculously small lobby (ie the pictures attached). We got a room in the basement with hardly any light which was very loud because it gave directly on the street so BRING EAR PLUGS if you want to sleep! The Bathroom was... More

The beds are soft, the tile in the bathroom is lumpy, the carter is like scratchy felt, and housekeeping is poor. There were no amenities given for the bathroom except a little bar of soap. The beds weren't made daily, fresh towels are only given every three days, but there were not any fresh bed linens given in a four... More

I stayed at the Place in Edinburgh last week and found the location ideal and the hotel very clean. The staff was very helpful and kind. Breakfast was filling and offered many selections. I would highly recommend.

I stayed at this hotel for my recent Christmas night out when I attended the Edinburgh playhouse. My room was extremely spacious, with large comfortable beds and well presented bathroom facilities. I had a dinner within my booking and the food was delicious. A modern twist on festive food including cauliflower soup, duck breast and fabulous sticky toffee pudding. Breakfast... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October, 2011, whilst the renovations were occurring, and found no problems. Was a bit tricky finding the place, due to lack of signage, but once we did, everything was fine. Due to the renovations, reception was run out of one of the rooms, but we had no problems with this. As our room was... More

This b&b has received mixed reviews and I suspect your experience will depend greatly on your expectations and how much you pay for a room. Not booking particularly far in advance, I got my single room for £37, without a bathroom and excluding breakfast. It was clean and as comfortable as I'd expect at that price and the service was...

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.
