Great service. Spartan room. Difficult to find space to open a large suitcase. But it's clean and adequate. No breakfast service, but you can get breakfast boxes. The hotel is very centrally located and the fare is definitely not expensive compared to the offer nearby- Lots of nearby breakfast places and restaurants- I think the hotel would be even more...

I stayed at Travelodge during a business trip because all the other places were full. Very basic service, don't expect a cheerful and a friendly service. but it is located in a very convenient location, walking distance to the station, Princes street, castle etc. Rooms are clean and tidy, Breakfast is pretty basic too, you get it in a box....

We've stayed here twice now with our young son and we think it's perfect for us. Its very central....ideal for a city break! Car parking facilities are nearby and the hotel reception applied a discount to our Omni Centre chip. Its only a stones throw away from most of the major shops and restuarants also. On the whole, the rooms... More

booked single room. its location is perfect, and quiet too at night. Very clean and practical way of setting for the room. I tried to book directly at their web page, but I do not know why I could not succeed, so I booked through hotel booking agent web, even if I should have paid 10 UK Pound more. But... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel (22nd-25th June 2015). The room was clean, comfortable and perfectly suited for a short city break. There was some road noise but not as bad as some city centre hotels I've stayed at in the past. The price of the hotel was more than we'd usually pay for a Travelodge. However, this... More

Travelodges are always comfortable, clean and reasonable places to stay in. The staff are always friendly and professional. This one is an excellent base for exploring the city centre. However, our room backed onto the shopping centre at the back and as we kept the window open, loud singing and voices could be heard at night.

Stayed here for 1 night. Clean, pleasant room but no windows that would open and no aircon so really stuffy. Didn't know breakfast came in a box-on the website it looked like an option-but not the only option. Great location and good price. Couldn't get internet to work so have up-no phone to contact reception so would have to go... More

This TL is also bang in the middle of Edinburgh and very convenient for Edinburgh Waverley train station. The hotel is in traditional buildings, so the rooms are not all uniformly sized. The one we were in was very quirky with a window looking down the length of Princes Street.

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.
