Our experience with this hotel during the 2 nights we stayed was phenomenal! The room was very large and spacious, ceilings are about 2-stories high and there were 2 floor-to-ceiling windows facing the street, letting in lots of light. We had a room booked for...More
My partner and I stayed here while we had a short break in Edinburgh, we found the room nice and spacious with a comfortable bed and good bathroom facilities.

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.
