Booked on the day for an impromptu stay. Great location and great value, friendly staff and very comfortable room. Room was small but perfect for our purposes. Clean and comfortable and functioning. If you are travelling by car, be prepared for hefty parking charges - alternatively, park somewhere out of town and bus in (this is what we did and... More

Most basic of rooms at hugely inflated prices due to the tattoo. I did not expect luxury but I must admit being annoyed with myself when I walked in and saw what I had paid a small fortune for. If only hotels would put the customer before the hard cash.

Room was basic but was spacious and comfortable with large windows and a high ceiling. There was a bit of noise of from the main road outside, but nothing too bad. The small television only had maybe 7-8 channels available.

Try and find a hotel room in Edinburgh in mid-august... You will pay through your nose! After a good deal of searching, we decided to go for the Travelodge (one of the three in town). We knew that the standards would be basic as that is TL business model, and in normal circumstances the price paid would be in line... More

We stayed at Waterloo Place overnight to visit the Tattoo and Fringe Festival. Although we arrived early, the staff were happy to store our bags for a donation to 'Macmillan', which we thought was a great idea (Edinburgh Station wanted to charge £12 per bag!!!). We were, at first, a little alarmed by the 'minus 2 floor' but quickly realised... More

This room was decently priced for the incredible location. The Royal Mile was just over the bridge (a short walk away) and there were convenient dining locations next to the hotel. The parking was not easy to find, but the free parking we found ended up being OK (long walk though). The room was a little warm, but I think... More

Straight away this hotel was a let down because of one unforgivable omission. NO FREE WIFI... For a brand such as Travelodge to still charge for WiFi in this day and age (where checking emails and browsing the net on our phones almost hourly is considered normal) is just a joke. Perhaps if I was in a room that cost... More

Located near Waterloo Station this hotel was fine for a few days of sightseeing in the city. Basic hotel with no frills but price was half of the hotel several doors down the street. Staff was friendly and helpful when we needed advice/direction. Clean but somewhat noisy while we were there...during Fringe and Tattoo. Would stay there again.

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.
