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.

We were warmly welcomed by our hostess who went above and beyond to make our stay a great experience. Our room was clean and spacious and had an ensuite shower. The building site outside (although only temporary of course) was quite noisy to wake up to but was no real bother.

Great location behind Princes street and 5 minutes from Waverly Train station. Very friendly staff and great that you get a code to get in and out of building with a key to your room attached. The shower was a slight problem as if you turned it fully round into the bath it

Loved the location. When I visit Edinburgh, I always stay on York Place area. Great location. Good for a tight budget. We had a double and a twin bed, L120 at the tail end of high season (late August). Poor Wifi at the top of the hotel, but the women at the desk informed us of
