Neighborhood
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.

Very reasonably priced accommodation very close to main station and walking distance to central Edinburgh. No breakfast, but that wasn't a problem as there are a couple of cafes almost next door. Small room but quite adequate for short stays.

Thank you for your comments about our Edinburgh Central Waterloo Place Hotel. We are pleased to hear that you were happy with the location of the hotel and you were happy with your room. We're really sorry to learn of your disappointment with our WiFi extra. We do not include the cost of this extra in our room rates unlike some of our competitors as we believe this allows our guests to pay for the services they need so we can continue to offer great room rates. This extra is non-refundable as guests are able to redeem this at any of our UK hotels if not used during their stay. May we thank you for your comments, we do hope you stay with us again.

Hotel is in a great location very close to Waverley station and the royal mile. Rooms are basic but this is exactly what you’d expect for the price! Service on the desk was excellent, prompt and friendly

A friend and I were taking a Heart of Scotland Tour so having a room so close to the departure pick up point was perfect. Your rooms are spotless, bed comfortable quiet with a good shower room. What more could one require.
