We booked the Crowne Plaza directly feeling confident of a high standard. Both my husband & I are members of the InterContinental Hotels frequent members Club and use InterContinental... More

We have stayed at many ihg hotels and this one has to top the pile as the absolute worst ever. 1st room we were given was in the stair well and although supposed to be a double we were squeezing past each other to get around the furniture. It was battered and stunk of smoke, we wondered why the window... More

We had a dinner at the hotel as part of the package. We called the hotel twice to make sure that as vegetarians, there was a variety available ( other than pizza) or being a 4 star hotel if their Chef could prepare a simple vegetarian meal(same for all 6 of us). we were assured that it was possible.

Nice Crowne Plaza in historic Edinburgh in a lovely old historic building. Great location in the Royal Terrace just behind the hill and close to all the sights and train station for further travels around Scotland. The rooms were nice and comfortable and with some character. Nice lobby bar too to relax after a long walk exploring this beautiful city... More

Stayed 2 nights for the Tattoo. Very nice hotel, older building with character but modern updates. Concierge was helpful and friendly. Super comfortable beds and room, the breakfast buffet was very good, coffee was super. The pool is in the basement and a bit of an odd setup, but refreshing. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your review, I am pleased to read that the staff looked after you so well with their service and recommendations. Our location is well suited to be just out of the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to but appreciate not ideal for everyone. As we were previously 7 terraced houses, all of our rooms...

the rooms, the pool, and the fitness center are very nice and convenient. However the service was absolutely horrible. It seemed like nobody had any clue what was going on. we were traveling with another person and had a single and a double room. When checking in they mixed up our rooms twice and after lugging everything to each room,... 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.
