Very nice little hotel, clean and friendly. Good value for money. Nice breakfast, friendly and helpful reception start. My American friend was particularly impressed with the traditional decor of the hotel and the comfortable bed.

This hotel was spotlessly clean with very helpful staff. Continental breakfast was included and it is very close to the Playhouse and St James shopping centre. BUT this has two main drawbacks. If you are put on the third (top) floor you will have 64 steep stairs to climb up. There is no lift and they are narrow in places.... More

We had a family room (number 23) with a private bathroom for 2 nights. The room had a double and 2 single beds. The room was clean and tidy and we loved the period furniture - it certainly had more character than the usual travelodge type places. The staff were helpful and polite - we would definitely use this hotel... More

In general was ok. The staff was kind and nice. The room big enough for us with a travel cot in it. The heating was or too hot or too cold and the beds weren't warm enough we had to ask for mor bedding because the first night we were freezing. Very well situated close to the town center

Booked partly due to its proximity to a conference venue and partly due to the price, I couldn't fault this budget beater. Not everyone would manage the 3 flights of winding stairs, but I need all the exercise I can get. Although I was travelling solo, the room I'd booked had 3 single beds and a spotless modern en suite... More

With the fringe being on, choice was limited. We had to settle for a tiny room up in the roof, sharing toilet and shower with 2 other rooms. Not perfect but only needed to stay one night. We got back 10 minutes after curfew and 'somebody' had put the sneck on and we spent a further 10 minutes trying to... More

I was slightly concerned by the reviews here but was met by a friendly welcome on arrival and the place makes a pleasant change from your average dull Travelodge. If you get the rather slow tram from the airport all the way to the end (York place) you are just round the corner, as is the Stand comedy club and... More

So I'm staying here with my Granny for our week in Scottland. So far the stay has been splendid in both our opinions. We arrived very late (10.30 pm) but the receptionist was both welcoming and helpful. It is an old building, gregorian (I think) in style and very old fashioned (in a good way). We have a room in...

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.
