“Friendly, convenient and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

The Broughton Hotel is small and friendly and is in a convenient but quiet location in central Edinburgh. The free parking (which should be reserved in advance) is a particular bonus since parking in Edinburgh can be difficult or expensive. There was a good choice for breakfast which was of a very high quality. The cost (via booking.com) was £60 for two people for 1 night and represented very good value

My sister and I stayed in this lovely little hotel for one night. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, the location was brilliant for exploring the city on foot. There are lovely bars and restaurant nearby, but the hotel stands in a quiet square and we had a good night's sleep. Breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious. We definitely recommend this little hotel.

We booked there based on Tripadvisor reviews and, in particular, the availability of free parking. I was not aware how close to the city center it is, so that was a pleasant surprise. Even more, we were given a very comfortable room, with high ceilings and a very spacious bathroom. Compared to most B&B places, the Broughton offers space. Good breakfast, too. Overall, good value for money.

My business partner and I booked 2 rooms at the Broughton Hotel and can really recommend the establishment to all who want to visit Edinburgh. The location was ideal for Princes St and the Castle, very walkable. The host was charming and v. helpful. There are dozens of places to eat within walking to suit all tastes and pockets. Breakfast was so well cooked and presented.... excellent... and toast to die for. The rooms were very good and the shower pinned me to the wall. The total cost was value for money so I can recommend this hotel to all.

Room Tip: The street at the front is not a busy one but my room was at the back and I heard NO city traffic

Stayed there for a week. Amazing service, very friendly owners. The room was very comfortable and clean. So was the bathroom. There is a selection of breakfast options and I tried two of them, and both of them were really delicious. Another benefit of this guesthouse is that it is very close to the city centre, so we didn't have to walk a lot, neither to take a taxi for our tours in the city. I will definitively stay there again If I visit Edinburgh again.
