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.

Our two night stay was a VERY good one. The hotel is perfect for the centre of the city/Tattoo which was our main purpose in visiting Edinburgh. The room was clean and comfortable, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom more than adequate. There was plenty of space but if anything slightly short of hanging/clothes space. Staff were very... More

First off the hotel is right in the heart of the city close to the bus/train station, thankfully making it easy and quick to find after a long travel. We were early but were allowed to check in all the same which was a bonus. The room was small but had everything that I needed or could want; a cup... More

the hotel was very central and great to use as a base for staying in Edinburgh. We had a family room which was really large and had a great view of Princes Street! The only problem we noticed that there was the distinct smell of cigar smoke on our landing, but you couldn't smell it in the bedroom.

everything you need....tidy cafe 2 doors down, good location and decent bed. The TV was poor - only 4 channels, but if you want to watch tv go somewhere else. Staff friendly. The reception area is minimal but again you are in Edinburgh to do stuff not sit around.

I'd only been to Edinburgh on day trips previously but had passed by the hotel at the relatively peaceful end of a busy main road. For a city centre location at peak time, it was clean and comfortable, well situated and I felt safe as a solo traveller. The original sash windows remain but sliding glazed doors keep the traffic...

Location was great, only approximately 5 mins from the train station. No food facilities at the hotel but loads of places near by so not really an issue. Room was clean, comfortable, well maintained. Bathroom a little bit on the small size but manageable. Staff were very pleasant and welcoming. This place is not a romantic getaway by any means... More

This hotel has compact rooms but enough room to be comfortable and as always the beds are really comfy. The hotel is really clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. We stopped for three nights and really enjoyed it. It's situated in an ideal place for the train station and the sights of edinburgh. It's only downfall is no... More

On visiting the Edinburgh Fringe Festival we booked the Waterloo Place Travelodge for 2 nights. We arrived at the hotel after midnight and the check in was hassle free and easy. The chap behind the counter was extremely friendly and helpful and we were soon in our room. We were so happy that the room was nice and cool as... More

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.
