We stayed here for one night while visiting Edinburgh and the hotel was well located and looks smart. It is quite expensive, though, and, therefore, certain things grated which otherwise wouldn't. The wifi repeatedly didn't work and we had to lie on the floor grappling with the modem each day, the bathroom looked great but, in fact, there was nowhere... More

I have just returned from a weekend with my girlfriend and couldn't fault the hotel at all. The room we stayed in was modern, stylish and had everything you would need for a weekend away, including a rainfall shower. The hotel is within 10 min walking distance of the main shops and Christmas Markets if you are going around that... More

We stayed here for two nights for my husbands 60th birthday. I had asked for their best suite as it was a special occasion. The front of the building was decidedly scruffy and the reception area was tiny. Our room on the first floor was large and quite stylish. It had a lot of positives- large comfy sofa, comfy bed...

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.
