A great place to try a pre-theatre dinner ..... I went to The Playhouse to see the Ballet. Parliament House Hotel served from 5.30 pm which gave ample time for a relaxing 2 or 3 course dinner and wine before walking a 5 min walk to the theatre. The Parliament House Hotel is a very old but beautifully converted building... More

If visiting Edinburgh for a weekend break, you'll find it hard to beat this hotel for location, comfort, breakfast and really helpful, friendly team. Great for the train and bus stations, nearby parking and a short walk to George street for great food, shops & bars. Will definitely be going back. Thanks for a great stay!

We paid well over £100 per night and didn't feel like we got very good value for money. The room was small, with barely a window (a tiny window you would need to climb on a chair to look out of) and you had to sit at an angle on the toilet to fit your legs there (I'm average height).... More

The room was ok but I noticed quite a bit if dust but I shrugged it off having a long drive from Southampton my husband and I just wanted to chill... More

Not a bad hotel by any means and for £55 it was adequate but for a city centre hotel it should be a lot better. My room was tucked away at the back of the hotel and accessed through two fire doors and down a cold spiral staircase. The room was tidy but tired, the fan in the bathroom ran... More

Friendly reception and breakfast room staff. Hotel room was clean and comfortable. We booked on B&B basis; breakfast was really nice and plentiful. You get 15% of local car parking. Would definitely recommend to others.

This was our second visit to this small & friendly hotel. It is perfectly situated for Waverley Station and the city. The log fire in the comfortable lounge is very welcoming and a lovely place to relax. The staff were very helpful, rooms clean and the breakfasts good.

Went to Edinburgh for Christmas and stayed at Parliament House hotel. Perfect location for the city center, quiet and comfortable, luxureus rooms. Friendly staff and a very reasonable price. Breakfast is very sufficient...so for a couple of days to enjoy Edinburgh I would certainly recommend Parliament House hotel.

This hotel was beautiful, you'd never know it was there! The room was lovely and spacious and immaculately cleaned! There's a little stuffed Grey-friars Bobby dog in each room (I had to buy him, he was too cute!). The staff were incredibly friendly- I would definitely return again! Lovely!

This is a lovely clean hotel. Very close to all the main tourist attractions. Very close to Waverley station. There is no car park but we didn't have a car so that wasn't an issue. Didn't have breakfast there. There are loads of cafes around and we tried those instead. The rooms are nice. One of our rooms was pretty... 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.
