Booked this hotel as a last resort, as we wanted to visit Edinburgh for the Christmas market. When we got there we were pleasantly surprised with our room, very nice, great location, staff very helpful. Bit overpriced but expected at the that time or year.

My colleague and I stayed for an overnight work meeting and we only paid £37, the rooms are very clean, beds comfortable and the bathroom very modern, I definitely recommend it! It's also very close to the omni center which is quite useful

We stayed here for one night for a last minute weekend break. We stayed in the castle room on the front of the building. The room was huge, the bed enormous and very comfortable. However the decor let it down. the furniture is old and dated, the curtains were hanging off the rail. On the plus side the room was... More

If you are looking for a reasonably priced, quiet place to stay in the heart of Edinburgh you won't find a better hotel than 28 York Place. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms to the back of the hotel with a fabulous view down to the river. It was so peaceful and yet we were only minutes from... More

We stayed here to see wicked in December and we're recently married. We walked into the room with rose petals on the bed, champagne and also a card from the hotel staff. We were both surprised as to how nice a gesture it was! We'll stay again!

We were shown to our room and to our surprise it was newly decorated with a gorgeous ensuite bathroom, king bed and plasma TV. We paid £55 and thought we had got an absolute bargain! Would definitely recommended this hotel. They... 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.
