Second time staying here on a short visit to Edinburgh. Always does what it says on the tin. Great price and great central location. Big room with comfy bed and walk in shower was just what I needed this morning. Highly recommend.

Handy for all tourist attractions. Staff are very helpful, polite & attentive. Rooms are clean & comfortable. There are plenty of complimentary drinks, fresh clean towels & hot water. Rooms are charged per room, not per person so can be a bit pricey if rooms are not fully occupied. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

This hotel was on princess street but slightly off main strip and was so quiet it was bliss. The hotel was clean and tidy and although a basic travelodge, it was so well conveniently placed it was ideal for a couple of nights in Edinburgh. Close to all the amenities, shops and restaurants and value for money was quality.

When you book a travelodge you should expect to get a good location, clean comfortable rooms, reasonable prices and helpful staff. This travelodge does exactly all of those. It is located 5 mins walk from the railway station and is ideal for anyone wanting a nice base to spend some time in the wonderful city of Edinburgh. I would definitely...

Stayed for the new year. It's a couple of mins from train station. The rooms were clean and modern. only bad point was you couldn't get a proper breakfast and no bar. Their was a vending machine and you could get a breakfast box

The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the Waverley railway station. The hotel is clean, comfortable and has friendly staff. This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and is ideally located in the heart of the town.

We only paid £39 for our family room (no breakfast) and normally for that price (or higher) you wouldn't expect much, but I was very pleasantly surprised: huge room, very clean, quiet, will stay again

Central location and good value for money. Comfortable room with good central heating. Friendly staff. Few minutes walk away from Royal Mile and Princess Street. . Not interested in bagged breakfast they offer but since lots of places to eat cheaply nearby this was not an issue. Definitely plan to return

The hotel is in a good location just 3 minutes walk from Waverley station. The room was large and as expected for a travelodge - no frills but all you need for a quick overnight stay in Edinburgh. Reception team were friendly tho it seemed a bit chaotic at check out and could be made clearer that you can just...

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.
