The combination of old and new is striking - behind the facade of the Old Lady Glenorchy Church stands a modern building of glass and steel. Upon entering the lobby your senses are hit with scented oils - A sensuous and tantalizing blend that instantly makes you feel calm and relax. The layout of our suite was original, spacious and...

Only stayed 1 night but wish it could have been more. The location is perfect to walk to anything. Staff is exceptional. Highly recommend. Marriott Gold got us a great room. Yes we were off season but it is always nice to get upgrade if available. Traveling back there again to pick up my daughter to bring her home from...

The Glasshouse Hotel is centrally located in Edinburgh for exploring both the old medieval town and the New Town. It is fronted by an old stone building front but the hotel itself is contemporary. It has a weird layout as it's integrated into a larger complex but you don't realize that from the inside. The lobby is not much, but...

We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon! We arrived early and although we weren't able to check in (expected) they were able to go through all the paperwork with us, offered to arrange our luggage to be in our room when we returned & amazingly, upgraded us to one of the suites!! Beautiful large room with...

Four of us came for a night in Edinburgh....we all thought the Glasshouse had some good things and some not so good....the staff were lovely, the rooms were lovely, having access to the garden from your room was amazing ! The toilets were horrific, like airplane toilets, awful noise, I'm a heavy sleeper and even I was woken by inconsiderate...

Booked for a rugby weekend and expected it to be busy. Didn't manage early check in but that was expected. Room was on third floor and backed onto roof garden, didn't explore until the morning but it is amazing. The front facing rooms won't have access so ask for room with doors onto it, all have seats and table outside...

We enjoyed our time at this hotel. We were on the higher floor so we had fun with the outdoors area (roof garden) right outside of the room. The restaurant from breakfast is limited in its offerings but all very nice. View from breakfast room is spectacular. Loved walking to the nearby castle. Lots of fun at this place. Great...

We selected the Glasshouse because of its unique layout and rooftop garden with views of Calton Hill. The garden is as advertised and most rooms look out onto it. The location of the hotel is excellent with ready access to many of Edinburgh's sites. Breakfast is served in a small room down a long corridor but it has decent views....

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.
