Lovely hotel and friendly staff. Made use of the pool and sauna, very clean. Wish breakfast was included it should be for the price. Our view of the internal "courtyard " which was the sir conditioning pipes and tubes was disappointing.

The Apex Waterloo Place hotel is ideally placed for the Edinburgh "New Town" attractions (with its many restaurants and pubs, and yet a short walk from the hurly burly of the Royal Mile. Comfortable rooms (note no views, but then who visiting Edinburgh is going to spend much time sitting in their room!!). A very good buffet and a la...

Perfect location, easy check in and wonderful rooms! I stayed in a deluxe room on the 10th floor and had an incredible view of Edinburgh. The bed was really, really comfortable and wonderful to climb into after a day of sightseeing! Complimentary Water, Nespresso coffee maker, biscuits and sweets refilled every day :) I´m going back!

Have stayed here before and the return stay was just as good. Stayed mid-January and it was surprising busy. Had to queue each morning for breakfast, accept on the Monday when everyone had vanished. The breakfast was a bit slow on the very busy mornings. Room was lovely with a great view across to Leith. One problem was the heating...

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.
