The location was also excellent and I would definitely recommend this for theatre especially. I found the breakfast very good and service was excellent. Friendly welcome and very helpful staff. Definitely consider... More

I haven't stayed in the Abbey Hotel for a while because I haven't been to Edinburgh for a while. When I realised I was in need of a room in Edinburgh I had no hesitation in giving them a call. I was pleasantly relieved when they said 'yes', there were 2 rooms available. I said to my colleague 'We're in... More

The bathroom was adequate but has a noisy fan. The breakfast was very good especially the porridge and was served by... More

An excellent find in central Edinburgh close to the Playhouse theatre and within walking distance of the bus and rail stations. Very clean and comfortable, beds were great. Friendly staff, nice breakfast and best of all reasonably priced.

We loved this hotel. I spent ages trying to find a hotel in the city centre that didnt cost a fortune and came across this hotel. First of all it was easy access from the airport. Just catch the bus into the city centre and its a short walk and rather easy to find with a map. The road is... More

We stayed at the Abbey Hotel for one night in the family room. There were 4 of us 2 adults and 2 children and we were in room 5. It was massive and consisted of a double bed and 2 singles. Built in small wardrobe quite sufficient. Beautiful high ceilings lots of character although a little tired looking it's got... 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.
