We have just returned from a midweek two nights stay whilst seeing customers in and around the area. We always try to stay here if possible as it's close to the centre and a great hotel with clean comfortable rooms and the bathrooms are very modern with some nice little toiletries touches which is thoughtful. Parking available and great Wifi... More

An excellent location from which to explore Edinburgh. Clean comfortable room and friendly helpful staff. A ten minute walk from the train station, to a quiet location with impressive views of the Firth of Forth.

Stayed one night in this small and very inexpensive but very comfortable hotel and from the minute we arrived until we left the manager Gordon was welcoming, extremely helpful and could not do enough to ensure our stay was as we had hoped it would be.

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.

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.
