    Great location, really friendly staff, cleaner than a lot of chain hotels who charge a lot more. Breakfast is substantial and high quality. The rooms are a bit dated. Perfect for a weekend visit when all you need is somewhere to sleep and shower.

    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

    There is on street parking. It's free at night but you have to pay and display through the day. Its quite hard to get a space at times though
