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.

We absolutely Loved this place! The location is perfect near everything! Nice combination of modern (huge windows when the sun shines it really shines in, great gardens on view) and gothic style building.

This property is located in new town, but within walking distance to the old town sights and restaurants. The hotel kept the integrity of the old church front but has a thoroughly interior. Inside, the hotel is laid in out in long floors. Getting around requires a long walk

Typical boutique hotel. Very trendy and modern.Confusing way to get to the rooms. Spent 2 nites with a group of 24. The lounge is called the snug and is on the third floor. Nothing in the lobby. This hotel is very antiseptic,really has no vibe to it. Outside is an absolute mess
