The house was situated close to the center so everything was easily within walking distance. The entire house (including the room and bathroom) was super clean. The bed was amazingly soft and comfortable. The breakfast was superb which included amazing yoghurt, fruit, cereal, toast, honey (my favorite), etc. Overall, it is definitely a place we would stay at again if...

The owner is very friendly, helpful, and hospitable making one feel very much at home. The room is nice, clean and cosy. It is also very accessible to the town centre and other attractions by bus. The nearby shops allow amenities to be easily accessed.

Elgin Terrace B&B is lead by a lovely young lady offering a comfortable, tidy and fully equipped place to stay in Edinburgh. Nice place to retreat as the surrounding is quiet and at the same time in easy walking distance to the city centre. Defenitely always worth staying at!

After several nights at Elgin Terrace, I'm ready to plan a return visit! This B&B was easy to find and very centrally-located near Calton Hill - not far from Holyrood Palace, the new Scottish Parliament, Arthurs Seat (great for hiking) and the walk up the Royal Mile. It's an easy public bus ride from Waverley train station by catching the...

I didn't know I had a cousin in Edinburgh - well I haven't, but it felt very much like it, staying at Fiona's B&B. Lovely private flat, easily within walking distance from any sights in Edinburgh. Super bed! All very clean.

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.
