I used to stay here a lot ten years ago but sadly it has not moved on on those intervening years, decor is the same but now rather dated. It is nice but not worth the premium they charge. Don't stay if you want value for money! The breakfast was good when I got it almost 50 minutes after I...

We stayed here for three nights. Feel it's is far too overpriced, we have stayed at the George before and will be going back there next year. On arrival there are two desks in the reception area with nothing else going on, no atmosphere. The room was one which led on to the rooftop garden this was nice and peaceful...

My wife and I arrived in Edinburgh on the 2nd December for a 2 night visit and chose to return to the Glasshouse where we had previously had an enjoyable stay. On arrival at the hotel at 2:45pm, we went to check in, and as we were a bit earlier than the advertised 3pm check in time, we we advised...

What a visit! From check in to check out it was an absolute delight. My wife and I have stayed here before on several occasions and always received a warm reception and an immaculate room. This time we were very fortunate and were upgraded to what must be the best hotel room we've seen. Simple words do not adequately describe...

Staff exceptionally helpful and cheery, rooms spotless and fantastic layout of the rooms! Great location. Stayed at the Caledonian last time we were in Edinburgh and isn't a patch on this hotel. Rarely happens but we were so sad to leave after our stay, would highly recommend and will be back next time we're in Edinburgh.

Stayed in the Glasshouse Hotel for just one night but we had an amazing stay. The staff were super friendly, the room had plenty of tea and coffee (including a nespresso machine) and dressing gowns, slippers and white fluffy towels. We had the continental breakfast buffet which was also amazing, a good selection of fruit, yoghurt, pastries, porridge and fresh...

Six of us stayed at this lovely hotel this weekend. Upon arriving we were too early to check in so they were happy to hold our bags, we were offered teas and coffees which were available to everyone before we left for a trip to Holyrood castle. Our rooms were lovely,clean, spacious and light. The bathroom had underfloor heating and...

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.
