    I can't fault the hotel, but its price is on the high side of the scale. It's good for a short stay given it's good location and friendly staff, but I would think twice if I was staying for more than a couple of days.

    It is just in the center of the city and very close to Main Streets by walk only. The breakfast is perfect but the space should be enlarged. I strongly advice this hotel who visit this wonderful city 👌🏼

    Breakfast could be improved. Nice bathroom. Very nice staff, helpful. Excelent location, well connected by public transportation. You can get to the hotel from the airport by tram, 9 pounds for a round trip ticket

    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

    Being very central there would be no problem finding somewhere to have your breakfast. I think the breakfast at this hotel is very average and not what you normally get at a 4* hotel.
