We have stayed here a number of times. Cannot be faulted. Highly recommended. Very close to all amenities and tourist attractions. Very close (short walking distance) from Waverley Station. Easy access to all transport links which are superb in Edinburgh.

I stayed there almost 10 days while I was searching for a flat in Edinburgh. It offered great value for money, since it provided a clean and very comfortable bed. It was also quiet. The only drawback was that the room was too small, without a fridge, but I wouldn't personally mind because I only wanted it for a good... More

Stayed here for three nights in June 2016. Rooms are very spacious for one person and the price is very hard to beat considering its location in Central Edinburgh, and the comfort level of the room. There is no restaurant at this location but there are many food options close by. A quirk of this hotel is that it is... More

This is the second time we've stayed here. Clean comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Perfectly located for easy access to Waverley station, a stone's throw from Princes Street and plenty of places nearby for breakfast (it doesn't have a restaurant). I would say if you're a light sleeper it may be a bit noisy as it's on a busy main... More

Be aware that this hotel has rooms on three floors above ground reception level and three below. we had a room (-303) on level minus 3 and although it did have windows, it was dark and very cold - we had to put the heater on full blast for a number of hours to warm it up. The view from... More

We booked ourselves in here as a family of 4 earlier this week (no breakfast) because of its close proximity to a few choice attractions. I've to say that the front desk staff were lovely, polite and very helpful but that's where it ends with this place. My husband and I had a basement (lower ground minus 3) room which... More

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.

We stayed for one night and the locatkion was perfect for anyone arriving at Waverley railway station - an easy 3 minutes walk. Our room was very quiet for a central location, no traffic noise at night and no noise fron other rooms. All the tourist attractions are within easy walking distance and the bus stop for the Royal Yacht... More

Stayed for one night before catching a train home from holiday, room was clean but basic, receptionist nice, only downside was that due to being on one of the lower ground floors we didn't get much of a view out of the the window.

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.
