Website gives completely the wrong impression of this hotel. It is more like a hostel than a hotel and not one of the better ones at that. The bed was old and very low with a poor mattress - backache unsurprisingly ensued. A tapping noise which was complained about was responded to with "its next door nothing we can do,... More

After reading the last two reviews i feel i have to give this small hotel a unbiased opinion. I stayed here last week with my two children, its a budget hotel but offers more than i expected for the price, the room was large a spacious, we had a small fridge, flat screen T.V and tea and coffee in the...

This is Edinburgh's version of faulty towers, a friendly basic hotel that is more like a hostel. The room I had was cheap as chips, tiny and basic which was exactly what I paid for. The staff were helpful, and it suited me completely as a place to lay my head while getting rowdy at the fringe festival. It's not... More

Hotel is dirty, filthy with sticky floors and filthy bedding. Fittings, upholstery, carpets and decorations are shabby, damaged or worn-out. Breakfast room and kitchen is filthy and unhygienic. First Breakfast was very poor so the following ones we ate at the Italian cage up the road.

Well, Hotel Twenty... Think that's all about I should have paid for it!!. Where do I start... Perhaps I was expecting more for a 3 star but then I realised it was actually a 2 star after seeing on some websites. Never again will I return to this hotel. We were based in the downstairs room next to the reception.... More

rooms are large and spacious. Building is a bit old and beds are a bit uncomfortable. Has nice and cheap Thai restaurant on site. Breakfast is good. Wifi good. Not far from Waverley train station and lots of shops and cafés. only draw back no bar fridge.

very kind welcome, and tried to manage the room in the best way as I asked for one more night. Clean and large rooms, bathrooms correct even if a little old fashion. All facilities in the room. Be carefull of the hot water!

Me and my husband stayed there for one night in May. We were aware that this was a basic hotel, but I still wouldn't recommend it to anyone, unless you're a backpacker in your early 20's. The room was small, dark and felt dirty, the bed was uncomfortable and the breakfast was really poor. The location was fine though, with... More

I booked a room the end of last year ready for my anual visit to the Edinburgh tattoo in August. I received an email yesterday stating that my reservation had been cancelled but with no explanation, yet when I have looked online at the same hotel it is still available for the date I originally booked it for. I have... More

Myself and my partner booked this hotel in September 2014 for the 8th of August 2015 for the Edinburgh tattoo. We received an email stating that our reservation has been cancelled with no reason given as to why. No doubt to free the rooms at a higher price for late bookers! We are now frantically looking for another hotel as... 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.
