Do not waste your time on this hotel. I paid £260 for two nights and shared the room with ants. They were everywhere and crawling around makeup, beds and food. The hotel didn't change the room and promised a refund which never got issued then...More
First things first. If stairs are not your thing don't stay here. My wife and I are in good shape and had a room on the top floor. It's a hike!
The room was quite nice but the sloping floor is, umm, a little disconcerting....More
Slamming doors, poor service, dull rooms with horrible colour choices. The bath had been glued back together and couldn't open the window due to it being painted shut. Only reason I'm not saying it was terrible is because the bed was pretty good and I...More
Initial service was poor, unfortunately the receptionist didn't speak English very well. When we arrived in our room (on the top floor of the second building - be aware there is no lift) there were no towels in the room. Reception delivered these when I...More

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.
