Very impressed with the room, location and service at this newly renovated boutique hotel in central Edinburgh. I rented the "castle room" which is one of the larger rooms at the hotel. The room was stunning - a lot of thought and effort was put into the renovations and they used high quality materials (granite counters in bath...). Overall the... More

I stayed here as a go-between from my house and the airport as my flight was at 6:30am and had to meet my group at the airport for 4:30am. I'd had reservations about how the hotel would be about me leaving so early in the morning, but the staff member who welcomed me to the hotel reassured me and and... More

Our room, the castle room, was lovely but our view was the bus station and the back of st james shopping centre - not a hint of the castle. Breakfast had to be ordered the night before which i absolutely hate and truth be told it was mediocre at best. If you have any mobility problems this is not the... More

Staff very attentive, nothing too much trouble here. Nice rooms, with fantastic views and my continental breakfast was delicious. The hotel is in a quit area but only 2 minutes walk to the playhouse and lots of restaurants, I would stay here again if only for the wonderful nights sleep I had.

Me and my partner visited 28 York Place a few weeks ago on a special trip for our anniversay. I had asked on the booking.com form whether we could request a double room as it was a special trip for us, and whilst i had obviously hoped for this did not expect anything more. However, we were pleasantly surprised when... More

Location next to bus station and St. James Center made it easy to get around. Our room was lovely, clean, comfortable, everything we needed, plus wonderful view north to the Firth of Forth. No lift in hotel so if stairs are a problem, get a 1st floor room rather than 2nd! Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel obviously well managed.... More

Booked this hotel via laterooms.com. Was attracted by the price and convenient location (short walk from Waverley Station). We were very impressed by the standard of the room, and the friendly staff. Our room (Linlithgow) had a lovely view across to the Forth and beyond. A lovely homely touch provided in the shape of a snack hamper, a bit like... More

Location, location, location! I enjoyed that it was right near the bus station and at the end of the line for the tram to the airport. It is centrally located so you can walk to the Royal Mile in 15 minutes. I liked the free parking behind the B&B (6 spots). There are new nice tub / shower, but they... More

Great value small hotel in centre of Edinburgh. Stayed on two occasions and always been lucky enough to get free parking behind the hotel too which is great as can be expensive else where! Staff have always been extremely helpful and rooms are clean and well presented. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

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.
