Last time we visited the Glasshouse was approx 7 yrs ago. We treated ourselves to an overnight stay. Having visited before we knew what to expect. Very nice hotel, however starting to look it's age now. Wooden dressing area housing mini-bar and (philips i-pod dock, surely a bluetooth device would have been more useful) was well marked, dents and scratches.... More

A very modern Hotel located at the top of Leith Walk virtually opposite John Lewis. We stayed there for four nights in a rooftop room which overlooked Carlton Hill and Gardens. The room was very contemporary, clean with a slightly quirky layout having the bed in the middle of the room with the head-board acting as a screen from the... More

I bought an offer voucher from Amazon local for a night in the Glasshouse with a suite and full Scottish breakfast for £149. As per the voucher photograph and description I was under the impression I would be staying in a "studio suite" which had a balcony. Upon arrival to the hotel (5:30pm when check in was to be 3pm)...

Great hotel. The staff were incredibly courteous. The room was incredibly well appointed and big. Great breakfast. Staff made all the difference. Just one irritant, if your room is in the first or second floor, u have to take the elevator to third floor and take stairs down. It is a pain if u have heavy bags. But then....no pain... 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.
