          Great location of hotel and for that reason I would possibly stay again. Excellent location for seeing a show at the Playhouse. But the hotel rooms were ‘average’ at best and breakfast looked unappetizing and we didn’t have it. Nice reception and staff.

          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
