We had two fantastic nights here! The room is big, the price is very reasonable! It was clean, the bathroom en suite and the beds were good. The staff is very polite, helpful and friendly. We would definitely come back!

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We were going to see a show in the city and the hotel was really close by. We thought it being in the city centre that the standards would be quite high although truth be told the price should of been the first red flag. The entire hotel needs updating. Our...

I stayed here for just one night and one night only in 2016 due to it being the most affordable I could find - £31.50. My room was the narrowness of a wardrobe, the bed had one pillow the thickness of a towel, the curtains were paper-thin and looked out onto the street so I got no sleep at all...

This hotel is situated in the centre of Edinburgh so it makes walking anywhere quite easy. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. The room was fairly large for a city centre hotel. It was very clean and the shower was immaculate and quite powerful! The beds were a little squeeky but none the less comfortable. The only downside...

We were asked for the money up front before we saw the room and for good reason it was awful. The Tv did not work and the room had not been dusted in months . Our room was the family room which looked like a church sale. The shower was disgusting and we could not use it and the toilet...

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.
