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.

We stayed here for two nights and were impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the quality of the room and service, and how central the hotel's location is, being just a 10min walk from Waverley and the Royal Mile. This is a small, 3-star hotel so it would be unfair to expect the same level of quality... More

I've been staying here for a good number of years(since 2003). It's a great place, clean and secure in which to dump the bags and explore the beautiful city. The staff are always friendly, reliable and willing to assist. The accomodation is clean and functional, providing the visitor with a perfect base. 6-7mins walk to Jenners, Rose St, Waverly Stn,...

Charming city centre hotel, great bathroom, lovely views of the rooftops across to the water. Nice bar and warm welcome. Good value stay. Only downside is that with breakfast not starting until 08.30 it is more centered on tourists than business travellers.

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.
