Mould on the walls, Bars on the basement windows.Filthy floors. We were given basement rooms I presume due to the Ryder Cup Payment was required in advance at £130 per night. I can see why now. I have never seen such a disgusting hotel

Diabolical. Never again. Cheap and central, true, but: no lift, no toilet or running water in room (toilet and shower on the landing, to be shared between 5 rooms), not even remote control for the telly (!),horrible furniture, wi-fi only in (very small) hall, etc. It's not really a hotel, more like a youth hostel. If that's what you're looking...

Staff nice. Rooms were not cleaned in the 8 days we stayed. We had to ask to get clean towels every day. Even though they responded with towels they never picked up the dirty ones nor did they vacuum the room. We lodged with them 3 years ago a good experience. The Scottish breakfast was excellent then. Potatoes Bacon, mushroom...

Booked through one of those price comparison sites. The location is brilliant, right next to the bus station (albeit behind it) and 3 mins walk to the Omni Centre. Princes Street is very close by too. The staff are very warm, friendly, helpful and professional. I really liked them. There is wifi, but it only really works in the reception...

This hotel is conveniently located near the last stop of the city tram. It is easily accessible from the airport and also located a short walk from the train station and Old Town. The room was basic but clean. We had a room on the front side and it was pretty loud at night. We did not pay the additional...

Although York House Hotel is very conveniently situated it is overpriced and breakfast is not included! Décor was very tired and furniture very old and mismatched, net curtains needed a wash and the curtains were hanging off the wall at one end.. We had the triple room and I felt like Queen Victoria, beds were comfortable and clean. However, there...

York House is very conveniently situated and within walking distance to most of the sights in Edinburgh and good if you're coming by train. The place looks like it has seen better days as there are some wear and tear around the hotel and in the rooms. Service is efficient. Overall, it is fair value for the price we paid,...

York House is a nice place to stay for travelers on a budget. It is close to everything and only a short cab ride from Waverly Station. I was only there to sleep so the size of the room was not a bother. There is a TV but with all of Edinburgh outside who wants to sit in and watch...

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.
