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

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

We had our room reservation cancelled yesterday. First we were told that the hotel may not be able to fulfill the reservation but when asked for the reason we were to it was the hotel closed suddenly. We were going to stay there in 11 days time, fortunately we have found alternative accommodation but it was not easy. Dissapointed

Our room was below ground level two feet away from reception and a few feet from the Thai restaurant. It was always noisy. The smell of the food was too strong. The room was tiny, warn and dirty. There was a filthy curled up area rug in the room that caused constant tripping. We eventually rolled the rug up and... More

I have just received an email telling me my booking for 18th August has been cancelled - no reason given! I actually paid for the room in December knowing that securing accommodation in Edinburgh during the festival period is difficult to say the least. Am not impressed and have not received a refund on my credit card yet either!

3rd time in Edinburgh and this hotel is the absolute worst. Tried to charge us BEFORE arriving. After that they charged our CC another 2 times with the same amount. We discussed this, mailed when arriving home and still no reply. Breakfast is expired and terrible.

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.
