Stayed here for the night as just wanted somewhere to get some sleep when we came for a night out. The staff are friendly enough and it seems a safe hotel with the front door locked at all times. It's also in an ideal location to explore the city only 15 minutes walk from the train station. The room was... More

After making our booking, our flight from London was delayed meaning we would get there after check in, we contacted them and they were really accommodating and had someone wait for us. They then lent us a phone charger when we arrived as we had lost ours. Really good breakfast, nice room, lovely friendly staff, couldn't have been luckier considering... More

i stayed for two nights. The hotel is at a working distance from the city center. Many good restaurants nearby. A short walk to Carlton Hill was also nice. The hotel facility need some improvements but not too bad and all are in working condition. But in my room, the shower did not work. It looks like the shower is... More

We asked for a refurbished room when booking well ahead after reading reviews here advising to do so. But when arrived were put in a very shoddy unrefurbished room where the paint was peeling from the ceiling & furnishings very shoddy. We were told that we could move to a better partly refurbished room on the 2nd. night which was... More

Hotel is in a good location and we received a warm welcome, however it's over priced for what you get. The rooms are rundown and in need of some TLC. There were springs poking out of the materice and the bed was extremely lumpy. Breakfast was a poor choice: cereals or toast.

We had seen a lot of bad reviews for this hotel after we had booked it and weren't sure what to expect but when we arrived it was no where near as bad as people described. Not completely central but easy enough to access the rooms could do with a bit of TLC but that didn't put us off, provided... More

Although good location we felt that the hotel was not worth the money only stayed 1 night but the room could do with extensive decoration & renewed furniture. The bed bases were very badly stained, cups dirty, bathroom needed attention!!!! We were embarrassed that foreign visitors staying in our capital city would be expected to pay a high price to...

This is truly a budget hotel and I guess you get what you pay for, which isn't much. We are not 'fancy' people, but we were looking for a clean place to sleep. We didn't need a place to spend much time in, so we didn't want to spend too much money. Where do I start? Firstly, we did not... More

Hotel needs some TLC rooms look nice but shabby carpet and paint work, clean sheets and towels though. Bathroom door did not stay closed, Window screwed open so could not close it, bedroom curtains/blinds so thin the light shines straight through, card machine didn't work .....cash point near by! Breakfast very basic ok if your a fan of continental.

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.
