We stayed at the 21212 at the beginning of a week long tour of Scotland. I really liked that the hotel was perched on hill on a quiet, semi-residential street, which made it feel more private and special. Though it wasn't on a bustling city block, it was very very easy to walk down into the city center. Our room... More

We just returned home after a 6 night stay at 21212. It was truly outstanding in every way. Every staff member was friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect. With only 4 rooms we received personal attention that could not be matched by any other hotel. The location was great, an easy... More

We wanted to stay somewhere different and special for our Silver Wedding anniversary and Paul Kitching's 21212 did not disappoint. We were given room 21 at the top of the house. After lugging the large suitcase up 3 flights of stairs you knew you'd had a workout. If there was one one questionable point (and it is a litlle one)... More

Thanks so much for you lovely review, I agree on the parking, a good way of doing it now. Also, your point of the stairs. No lift allowed in such a lovely building but it;s like free gym membership, ha ha! I'm so glad you enjoyed it all. we do aim to please. And no, not another 25 years.....please! More

I'd firstly like to thank all of the staff at 21212 for making our stay unforgettable. Incredibly attentive, and warm staff make for a simply exquisite experience. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights during our wedding on the 25th of July. We stayed in room 12. A beautiful room, with a luxurious bathroom. No expense has been spared... More

just returned from a 3 night stay at 21212 and it was one of the nicest places that we have stayed. The room (No 2) was spacious and very luxurious with a separate sitting room and outstanding bathroom with all the little extras.

I visited Edinburgh for the Jazz and Blues Festival and stayed at 21212 on Tuesday evening - Room 2 with views overlooking the garden and beyond.

This team offers an outstanding customer experience. From a wonderful room, #12, to a fantastic meal from Michelin-starred Paul Kitching. Would love to see Paul earn a second. Great central location. Will plan to keep this on the don't miss list.

My wife and I stayed 2 June and our room was delightful and luxurious with an extremely large and comfortable bed and tasteful little extras which add to the visit.

I was visiting Edinburgh on business and wanted to stay somewhere that wasn't a standard business hotel. Reception staff were very welcoming, the room large and comfortable. I ate out with colleagues so didn't get to sample the food. Nor did I get to eat breakfast as they don't start serving until 8.15 or 8.30! I would happily return and... 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.
