My husband and I stayed here on Saturday night. This hotel has a great location. I've read mixed reviews about the rooms. We stayed in the Forth room on the second floor which was a deluxe room. It was a small room but this didn't bother us, it had great views. The staff are very friendly and nothing seems to... More

Upon arriving there was a very warm welcome from manager and we were quickly shown to our room. Went into the room which was very small and quite depressing. Floorboard very creaky but understandable in an old building. However, toilet had not been cleaned and very disgusting/dirty. Whole room/bathroom thick with dust. After talking to the manager about this we... More

As a regular business traveller, I booked this place last minute and was pleasantly surprised by the price. When I got there I realised why. Noisy, uncomfortable beds and the dirtiest room I've ever seen including an unflushed toilet. It was late and I was tired so simply grinned and bared it, but would give this place a wide berth...

We loved this hotel and the owners can't do enough for you, rooms are adequate and have everything you need. Only downside is the outside noise, we hardly slept with noise from party goers, traffic and a few altercations taking place on the street outside. We raised this with the owner on checkout and they are aware and hoping to... More

Great located hotel, very nice and clean with the best view. Everything you need to explore the beautifull city of Edinburgh. Everything is very close and you can walk pretty everywhere and get there within 10 minutes. :) Would recomend to others. Staff is really friendly too and we realy enjoy our stay.

The hotel is a short walk from the train station and close to lots of pubs and restaurants. The wifi in the rooms is great. The rooms and bathroom are really clean and modern. The views from the room over Edinburgh are amazing. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and pointed out some sights on a complimentary tourist map... More

Stayed here for a night during a shopping trip in Edinburgh. Greeted by friendly and welcoming staff. We arrived before check in, but our cases were stored and delivered to our room for coming back. The room was warm, which was brilliant after coming in from the cold, wind and rain. We were given the 'Holywood' suite. The room was... 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.
