I spent two nights at Adria House in Jun 2014. I made the right choice definitely. The house/room decorated in classic style was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The location is convenient; it takes 10-minute walk to the city centre/rail station. The breakfast and biscuits (in room) were delicious. Edward and Maria are very kind and willing to provide directions/suggestions...

Very much enjoyed our stay with our sons. One of the few smaller inns to offer a room set-up that would accommodate our family - parents plus two sons not old enough to stay in their own room. The queen with two twins faces the front of the building so if you would like to open the windows as we...

We spent a night at Adria House to begin our Scotland visit. It was a great choice. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, with high ceilings and both a queen bed and two twins. The en suite bathroom was larger than the norm we had come to expect from other B&B's. The common areas, as well as the room...

Adria House was perfect in every way for my daughter and I. You can read from others about the detailed attention to preserving (or perhaps in some cases restoring) the character of the Georgian home, a real treat for those of us who prefer color and woodwork to the cold modernism so prevalent in the upper-end UK interiors. What really...

The Adria house is a wonderful guesthouse situated near the center of Edinburgh. The house itself is in a wonderful condition featuring high ceilings and skylights, giving a glimpse into a past with beautiful architecture. Our room situated on the top floor was very comfortable, spacious and bright and very tastefully furnished, the bathroom (also with a skylight) simply enormous...

My friend and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Adria House. We stayed in room 3, the twin en suite room.

The current owners have maintained many of the beautiful original features, the design...

I stayed here for a week in March 2013 while spending time at the University of Edinburgh. While it's a bit of a walk to the U, especially in March weather it was a great place to relax and use as a home. The owners are very pleasant and the breakfast is a great start to the day.

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.
