Was not able to receive calls from home in Canada, our cell phone bill was astronomical. Hot water heating did not work in room, was given a space heater, which was... More

The hotel is close to the city which is good. However some rooms (i.e. 106) face on Carlton Hill which is very noisy when the local night club closes. We were woken by fights on 2 consecutive nights. Hotel need to work with the club and police to solve this issue or business will dwindle. Some staff were very friendly... More

We stayed at the Parliament House Hotel when going to see the Military Tattoo and take in the atmosphere of the city during the Fringe. Edinburgh was packed with people everywhere, yet the hotel was a quiet oasis from the hurly burly. The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable and clean, the reception area welcoming and the breakfast was excellent. Even... More

An old hotel, no bar, only a receptionist supplying bottled drinks. Rooms are small but adequate. Comfortable beds but bathroom needs modernising, Windows need replacing and lifts refurbishing. Breakfast was OK but charged an extra £13.50 for a cooked breakfast. Due to the tattoo and the fringe the rooms were very expensive, amazed they charged £225 for one night.

Comfortable hotel with a great location. My room was small but was ideal for my one night stay. As the hotel was not full, I was given an upgrade from a single to a double which was unexpected but appreciated! Breakfast was adequate if a bit pricey with a choice of either continental or hot selections. My room was clean... More

Room was small but had everything we needed. The toiletries were unexpected but very welcome and I particularly liked the smell of the shower gel. Breakfast very nice. Location of this hotel is superb. My only complaint is the bed was soft but I am sure that some people won't mind this.

This is not your bog standard soulless hotel. It's really well located, but not immediately visible as tucked round a corner on a steep hill. The reception area lounge doubles as a bar so sometimes is occupied by gathering American tour groups. The rooms are dispersed on several levels varying from compact to enormous. The staff are great as is... More

I've stayed here several times now over many years and highly recommend it. It's an old building and no 2 rooms are the same. Comfortable, quiet and clean. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable of the surrounding city. This is a little gem of a hotel in the city centre.

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.
