This accommodation had a lovely big room and nice bathroom. The problem we had was that we were on -3 level I think and the lift does not even go down that far only to the -2 level, so we had to lug our big luggage suitcases down stairs to our room, ok for backpackers but not someone with heavy...

Lovely big rooms with a fabulously comfy big bed! Simple, but just right! Just perfect location just what we needed after walking round the city! Great time to go during the fringe, theatre lover or not it's a great atmosphere and great for all the family! Would stay again for sure next time (probably back next year for longer) great... More

Comfy bed and plenty of room. Amusing squeaky floor which sounded like someone knocking on the door! Rather hot with the windows that only open a teeny tiny bit. Shame about the hugely inflated prices for the festival.

We stayed at Travelodge Waterloo Place last month. The hotel is only a couple of minutes walking from train station. We arrived early but check in is not until 3 pm. We asked to leave our luggage and go for a walk. The manager agreed to keep our bags but she was really rude with us, her name is Kelly.... More

This hotel was very handy for our arrival from Edinburgh Airport. Then in the morning it was just a short walk to the bus station and the bus home. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. But ask for a hairdryer the night before!

Ah, the yearly August dilemma of trying to book a hotel during The Fringe that is larger than a shoebox but won't cost me quadruple the usual advance rate. If anyone can figure this one out, you're better than me. Thus, this review will have a little bias, so bear with me. After paying on average £130 a night (booked... More

We had a brilliant stay here. The location was perfect to walk every where and the bus stops were convenient if you are travelling to attraction further out like the Edinburgh Zoo or the Royal Yacht Britannia. Very handy to and from the train station. The reception team were very friendly and helpful. A brilliant hassle free stay!

Three days before travelling to Edinburgh for the Festival, the busiest time of the year, we were told we were double booked at our regular B&B!! Miraculously, we managed to take advantage of a cancellation at this Travelodge, and are so pleased we did! After a very warm welcome from the helpful and friendly staff (who took care of our...

Stayed during the Fringe and so expected everything in Edinburgh to be expensive - even the Travelodge was - £260 for two nights. That said, our room was quiet and clean and the bed was comfy and we were only in it to sleep. The location is excellent - just off the east end of Prices Street. The hotel is... 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.
