York House is about 6 minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley. It's a budget place where you have to share a bathroom and the room is simple, just stocked with things you need. However, when I got there, I was given the most excellent welcome from a lovely Italian lady. She recommended the Conan Doyle pub (near to where the Sherlock...

Well! After booking in at this supposed good B&B in York Place in Edinburgh to discover they'd completed messed up the booking and discovering that the TV did not work, the pillows were less than an inch thick, mould in the shower tray and a dangerous plug socket, booked out rapidly, argued and received deposit back after I showed them...

My friend and I booked this quite late on as we were late add ons to a stag party who'd all booked into another hotel nearby which was fully booked. Got a great deal for a twin room for a Friday and Saturday. The place is right in the center, perfect location. On arrival the staff were lovely, very helpful....

The location was very convenient - about 10 minutes walk from Waverley station and a few minutes away from the Omni centre with restaurants, a gym and a cinema. It's right beside the bus station and St James shopping centre. There were 4 of us staying altogether in a huge room on the basement floor. It was warm all the...

Our room was big but it wasn't very clean. Found a box of domino pizza under the bed but wouldn't dare to throw it away. The towels and bedsheets were very clean. But we need to share the toilet with other people and it wasn't very comfortable. If you have senior citizens with you, please choose another hotel since they...

Have seen it better! No tending day2 of 3. Beds not done and no new towels. OK situated in a relatively quiet surrounding in spite of trafficated road. We chose to have our breakfast elsewhere. Problems with the front door to open without help from insiders.

I have only very positive things to say about this hotel. We arrived on early flight and got checked into room at 10am! The tram directly from airport stops half a minute down the street! The room was huge with big comfortable beds. Lady in reception was lovely and friendly. Location was brilliant, great shops, cafés and restaurants all very...

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.
