Stayed here over Christmas last year, great location, good service and lovely room had a wall mounted television, fridge and usual facilities! Rooms were spacious with high ceilings which you'd expect from they type of building and of course decorated nicely, enjoyed our stay!

A lot of the other reviews say the same, this hotel charges 4 star rates but is a 1 or 2 star in reality. Frayed and dirty carpets, no lift, peeling ceilings, bathroom with outdated fittings and no heating, weak and cold shower, slippery bathtub....More
I came to Scotland well-warned about the weather and the food, and was thoroughly disappointed to have nothing to complain about. The beer was cold, there was ketchup and ice galore for those who wanted it, even the haggis was great. What is the point...More

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.
