When I originally booked the room, which was a single standard one, i did not know i would not have my own bathroom and toilet facilities. I was then told i would be able to have this but in a separate room across the corridor. No problem, i thought only to find out these facilities were in a room with... More

This b and b is in an absolutely fabulous location (ten minutes walk from the train station). The bad part is that they don't have a lift on offer so some of our party stayed on the top level and it's a few levels of stairs to master, in failing that though the rooms are comfortable and very spacious. Many... More

Where do I Start...? Ok, its a 2 star more hotel than a B & B, but I would still expect some semblance of Cleanliness & decent décor. it was a Twin room, one bed's headboard was hanging off the wall, the lighting was poor & dim, The Tv remote fell apart when used. The shower curtain was about a... More

I don't like being negative. But I travel extensively and this was perhaps one of the worst hotels I have stayed in, in a very long time. I wanted to share the below with you, as I wouldn't recommend this hotel. 1) Noise: you can hear everything from the next door room. The guests weren't making a huge amount of... More

Comfortable bed. Shared shower room. Spacious family room which was more than I needed and didn't seem badly priced. Not a B&B unless you order breakfast as an option. Very well placed for Princes Street attractions as well as York Place. Just over the road from where I needed to go.

Stayed in this B&B for two nights recently. We got a double room on the first floor with an en-suite. It was a big room at the back of the building and also a warm room as we had the window the whole trip. It was a clean enough room, bed linen and towels were fine. The duvet and pillows... More

The good: The York House has a really good central Edinburgh location, within easy walking distance of Waverly train station, tourist sites of interest in the old and new towns, and a great selection of restaurants and bars. Our room had ensuite bath, with a reliable shower. The room was at the back of the hotel and very quiet for... 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.
