An ideal location if visiting by train and all the local shopping areas. Does not provide a cooked breakfast but breakfast boxes. Wetherspoon are around the corner in the Omni Centre to get a cooked breakfast at a reasonable price.

We arrived at the hotel around lunchtime to be greeted by Colin who could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We weren't due to check in until 3 but Colin took our bags and then gave us information to help us with our stay including directions, bus numbers and costs. When we returned to check in we were greeted... More

This hotel is centrally located just a stone's throw away from the Waverely station and within walking distance to everything Edinburgh has to offer. Prices are decent but NO FREE WIFI?!? Ridiculous and a drawback to staying at the hotel as wifi connection is slow and expensive. Breakfast is not included and they offer boxes to take away. Good bars... More

The main advantage of this hotel is it's great location. You are so near both the New and Old Towns and also transport links to anywhere else. It was great to be able to pop back during the day for a few minutes if we needed to. Our room was at the back and quiet (we had requested this). The... More

What can I say - 3 Travelodges on Princes Street and this one is significantly cheaper than the others yet less than 2 minutes walk from the platform at Waverley Station! Ok, it's in the less glamorous direction along Princes Street but inside it's modern and well appointed. My room is a lower ground floor one which I'd worried would... More

It was dark outside when we arrived. Our room was dark also. One overhead light was very dim and 2 little sidelights on the headboard didn't contribute anything. I had to go into the bathroom to read the map. (Bathroom lighting was very good) As we were going out for supper a few minutes later I stopped at the desk... More

The room was small, bed was comfortable, set up of room was weird: there was double patio doors which led onto the window, the window had a pain of glass in front of the window too, The bathroom was clean A huge bonus was the fan in the room, and how it's very close to the station. Don't be fooled... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Travelodge Edinburgh Central Waterloo Place Hotel. I looked at the reviews of a number of hotels in the central Edinburgh and decided that the Travelodge seemed to be as good as other more expensive hotels. I was happy to find that the hotel met or exceeded my expectations. It was basic but our basic... More

This is a great location, the reception staff were a bit grumpy to begin with but as the day went on they warmed up. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable, we booked 2 rooms for 3 people in each, the beds were already made up as requested.

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.
