We stayed here for one night as it was next door to the playhouse and we were going to see "Cats". Booked the room and breakfast through Amoma. Husband used the shower first thing in the morning, flooded the bathroom floor. We reported it to reception who were apologetic. It kind of ruined the stay. This was our first time... More

Curious hotel and not up to the normal Autograph Collection standard. the use of the word "curious" was considered throughout the stay and reflects exactly the experience here. Not always negative and sometimes positive.. Internal appearance and first impression is of a dated, old style hotel. No bar / lounge is curious. The "Honesty Bar" on the 3rd floor has... More

The rooms at this hotel are lovely! Despite the gothic entry, the entire hotel is very modern. The location is perfect and very central to all things. The staff is excellent, very friendly, and immensely accommodating. There was a little confusion upon my arrival because I wanted a double bed but was put with two twins. Unfortunately on the reservation... More

Friendly staff were on hand to show off the room which very modern and stylish. The honesty bar is a rather neat idea. Upstairs has some amazing views. The cooked breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. Top marks to the chef.

On our first visit to Edinburgh, we were very happy with our stay at the Glass House. In our correspondence before our arrival and while we were guests, we could not have been treated more hospitably. I believe it was Jamie who emailed back and forth in answering our questions, this was our last stop on a month long European... More

Stayed two nights in the Glasshouse Hotel in Juni 2016. For us, a good hotel is the combination of location, interior and service. The last one was disappointing; please see our rating hereafter, starting with the positive things.

The location of the hotel is perfect. The blend of old and new is a delight. The lobby and hotel have a contemporary feel. I had a suite with a patio. My airconditioning system wasn't working and the hotel was going to move my room. I loved my room and thought that the problem would be corrected in a day.... 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.
