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

You know what to expect from a Travelodge, basic but clean. Staff friendly and helpful. This was exactly what we found here. It's about 3 min walk away from the main train station. ( it has a small front, so be careful not to miss it, like us!) We were visiting the Fringe and found all venues were max of... More

Perfect location at the end of princess street and North Bridge which leads up to the Royal Mile! Ideal for the Fringe! Would be awesome for Hogmonay! Surprisingly quiet considering the location and mostly all you need for a simple over night stay.

If what you are looking for is a place to just sleep for one night and you could care less about amenities, this is the place. Dispensed hand soap, dispensed "body and hair wash" in the shower; no face cloths available, and one large towel per person plus one hand towel to share unless you ask for extras (ie, for... More

There was a problem with our room (room stunk of urine when we arrived and then my partner stepped in a wet patch only to realise the carpet was soaked in urine) Man on reception was very apologetic, changed our room and offered us some vouchers. The room we moved to was a bit small but ok. The lady on... 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.
