Curtains dont cover window. Bed broken, base collapsing. Mattress...

I just had a one night stay here in the single bedroom with shared bathroom. I do travel a few times a month for business so am well accustomed to this sort of accommodation. Overall it's perfectly fine. The bedroom was tiny, bed wasn't fantastic, finish around the buildings was tired, but look, it did the job and as expected....

When I originally booked the room, which was a single standard one, i did not know i would not have my own bathroom and toilet facilities. I was then told i would be able to have this but in a separate room across the corridor. No problem, i thought only to find out these facilities were in a room with...

This b and b is in an absolutely fabulous location (ten minutes walk from the train station). The bad part is that they don't have a lift on offer so some of our party stayed on the top level and it's a few levels of stairs to master, in failing that though the rooms are comfortable and very spacious. Many...

Where do I Start...? Ok, its a 2 star more hotel than a B & B, but I would still expect some semblance of Cleanliness & decent décor. it was a Twin room, one bed's headboard was hanging off the wall, the lighting was poor & dim, The Tv remote fell apart when used. The shower curtain was about a...

I don't like being negative. But I travel extensively and this was perhaps one of the worst hotels I have stayed in, in a very long time. I wanted to share the below with you, as I wouldn't recommend this hotel. 1) Noise: you can hear everything from the next door room. The guests weren't making a huge amount of...

Comfortable bed. Shared shower room. Spacious family room which was more than I needed and didn't seem badly priced. Not a B&B unless you order breakfast as an option. Very well placed for Princes Street attractions as well as York Place. Just over the road from where I needed to go.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods 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 epicentre 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.
