My wife and I are just back from our stay at the Indigo and, I have to say, our stay added to our overall enjoyment of my birthday weekend! To start with, the location is excellent - with trams stopping right outside the entrance and the bus station for onward travel but a short walk up the road. And if... More

Debated for awhile between Holiday Inn Royal Mile & the Hotel Indigo as I will be in Edinburgh for only a day & wanted a centrally located hotel. So glad I selected this. Only 7 min walk from Waverley train station & the tram to the airport is just outside hotel. All sights within walking distance. Room is small but... More

Receptionist was very polite even when being interrupted by another guest that didn't have patients to wait till she was finished with me. Room was nice relatively modern and had all amenities I could need, lovely... More

Lovely hotel with great location. A perfect home-base for whisky touring. Tram to airport stops directly in front of the hotel. Will definitely visit again. Plenty of plant-based grocery and restaurant options in easy walking distance.

Room was filthy and no ventilation. This was meant to be a junior suite room at over £300.00/night!!!! The room was in the basement and did not for me constitute my definition of a suite. The bathroom was not clean, floor dirty and fittings falling to pieces. I was moved to a room on the fourth floor which was better... More

I guess I expected more for all the glowing reviews, but at over £200 a night this hotel isn't anything to write home about. There is zero sound proofing in the rooms, so every conversation and movement in the corridors is perfectly audible in-room. The rug in our room was stained and not hoovered well. The toilet paper holder in... 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.
