Excellent location for station and central Edinburgh, but dreadful location regards Street noise! The gentleman who checked us in and out and served us breakfast was a great help. He carried our luggage up and down stairs and was very pleasant. The stairs were a bit steep for my friend,but it did reduce her smoking!!

Parking in Edinburgh is difficult and expensive. The hotel is ideally placed for the Fringe Festival particularly as its basement is some of the theatres. However, the room was good, clean and expensive at £135 / room only. The problem was that it was on the first floor, with single glazing, on a warm night, with trams, traffic and people,... More

The tram line direct from Edinburgh airport ends almost right outside the door of this hotel -- Hertz car rental is 100 metres down the street -- The bus station is right opposite. -- Princes Street is a mere 5-min walk away. There are many eateries and watering holes right around the corner. So, PERFECT location. Our en suite double... More

This hotel was quite nice and central from the train station, the hotel is a really nice old building and so the rooms are spacious feeling due to the high ceilings. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean - the bathrooms seem to have been redecorated recently. There was a nice area for tea, coffees and... More

A great hotel that I have stayed at many times. Always a joy to get back after a long day, have a bath in the revamped bathroom or just flick on the TV and sit and watch the fantastic view out of the window (and it is an amazing view at the back). I always have a great sleep and... More

Centrally located at end of tram line from airport. Always worry if on top of towels there is a box with earplugs and eye mask! Despite requesting a quiet room, the room faced the main street combining traffic noise and the constant clanging from trams. Rooms very small with very high ceilings. Curtains didn't really stop the light. Stairs very... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, perfectly located next to tram stop from the airport. Staff was very friendly and hotel was reasonably clean. Small room for the price paid but this may be the case for all hotels in the city centre, <5 min walk to princes street.

We stayed here for one night on a two day trip to Edinburgh. It's ideally located, about a five minute walk from the station, and has easy access to transportation, in various forms. The rooms are more than adequate with high ceilings and en-suite bathrooms. The king size bed was very comfortable.

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.
