Was at a show in the playhouse at the weekend and the Travelodge Waterloo place is in a great location for there and for the train station so that's a plus! Only paid £39 for the room so that's another plus! What lets the hotel down is the room its self. The room was on the small side. Its obviously... More

We stayed in this travelodge as it was close to the playhouse. The room was ok, very noisy even with sliding doors at the window to reduce it. No mirror above desk if you were trying to do make up/hair. Only 2 plug sockets in the room. Toilet was too close to the door and toilet roll holder was like... More

Hotel was fantastic location, only 2mins walk from Waverley Station. Great for exploring Royal Mile & Castle. Room was very small for a family and had an extremely bad musty odour. Very noisy at night.

Myself and 7 year old daughter stayed for 3 nights. Inconvenient to have no fridge in your room when the hotel has no restaurant or cafe. We stored milk and drinks in the bay window. Room was not cleaned on 2nd night, bins not emptied etc and no attempt to do this although staff offered to top up clean towels... More

I was a little nervous about staying at a Travelodge as I've had really bad experiences previously. However, this hotel is totally fine! Rooms are basic but modern and spotlessly clean. Our room, 109, was large and comfortable, and there was little street noise despite being on the first floor. The location is also perfect for getting out and about... More

We returned to this very comfortable Travelodge after visiting a year ago. Having travelled by rail, the proximity of the hotel was excellent but still avoided the noise of the city centre. Everything was very clean, the shower hot and powerful. The kettle was a good size and quick, the television well angled and straightforward to use. Key security well... More

I have stayed at this particular Travelodge possibly four or five times due to its great location. Brilliant location, situated halfway between the shops and the Playhouse and is only a 5 minute walk from the train station. Plenty of lovely restaurants and cafes surrounding this Travelodge so you will never be stuck for a place to eat. The rooms... More

Over the past 2 years stayed here 3 times, one with colleagues, once on a girls weekend, and latterly with the other half. Clean, fantastic location, would definitely stay again. Prices do vary, last time I stayed it was £31 for the room on a Monday night. Have paid £120 for a Saturday night, but cheap in comparison to everywhere... More

We travelled to Edinburgh to visit and tour Scotland. Travelodge Waterloo Place was conveniently located for this and comfortable spacious rooms. Thank you Travelodge. Recommend to anyone who visits Edinburgh.

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.
