Plusses: 1. Good price. I got a single ensuite room for two nights for £25 via laterooms, which was very reasonable. 2. Great location. Very central, but for Edinburgh City Centre, and also the Easter Road area where I was working. Minuses: 1. The size of the bathroom. Understandable to have quite a small room since it was a single,... More

This was not a good hotel. The mirror in the bathroom was cracked and also the sink which was probably due to the shelf above the sink being on a slope so nothing stayed on there. The shower was full of mildrew and the bad was a banana. The breakfast was shocking as others had reported. Our room needed a... More

Average hotel actually in all aspects. Nothing special but on the other hand no siginificant disadvantages. If you will hunt good deal offert then nothing against to book that. There is very good pizzeria 2 minutes from there. The name is Taste of Italy.

I stayed for one night in this hotel whilst travelling North East England/Scotland, and while there were many positives, it is still a work in progress. I arrived several hours before check in, with the hope of leaving my bag at reception. It was a pleasant surprise that not only was this no worry but that if I could hold... More

Almost all of the rooms of the hotel are located in the entrance area. That as well as the badly soundproofed rooms are one big annoyance but not the only one. Improvable cleanliness as well as a broken water boiler were other discomforts. Wifi was not available in all of the rooms. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast though which... More

10 min. walk to Princes Street and Waverley Station. Staff was very friendly and helpful, kept our bags for the whole day after checkout, no charge. The room was clean and comfortable, no noise nor smell bothered us. Mattress could be better, but other than that no complaints. Excelent value for money.

Really can not fault this hotel one bit. It was situated in an area that was close to all tourist attractions and a wide variety of restaurants. On arrival the staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed in room number two and it was really stylish. Small and narrow but we expected that due to the building being an old... More

Good value for the money and the breakfast was very good, BUT I booked the hotel with a credit card and the whole amound was kept from the credit card. When I arrived there I paid with cash the whole amount and informed by the service that the money that kept from the card would be released as soon 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.
