Expected more because it is a usually superb Hotel Indigo. Cons: -- Expensive and extremely overpriced -- Tiny rooms (many of them noisy) -- Uneven staff customer service Pros -- Good location -- Good wi-fi (but for the price that should be automatic) One example of odd service: Numerous guests returning from the late Tattoo show (when the hotel should...

Great location, excellent hotel and super helpful and polite staff! Ive stayed at this hotel with work every week for longer than a year and would absolutely go back any time and reccommend to everyone. Nice restaurants and shops just around the corner, next to the city centre and Princess street and George street. Lovely boutique hotel. Enjoy :-)

Spent six nights here recently and had a really pleasant stay. The location is excellent for central Edinburgh, close to princess street, Waverly station, shops, theatre and restaurants and also right by York Place tram stop. The hotel itself it's rather smart, our room on the ground floor (107) was spacious enough, well furnished with a good sized comfy bed,...

I will confess that we only stayed in this hotel one night but it was WONDERFUL. My travel agent wanted us to stay somewhere interesting, and he has good taste. When I looked at it online, it didn't look promising. I thought the colors were horrid. When I got to the room, I really liked it. It is one of...

We stayed here for a weekend and where actually a bit disappointed. We were promised a suite over the phone but didn't get one and only got a small room with a lot of things not functioning such as the pay per view movies, the television channels itself, the telephone and we had a rainfall in our room as the...

I stayed here for 2 nights, it's fantastically central, wonderfully decorated and super friendly. I would heartily recommend this hotel, it's not the most inexpensive place to stay but it was worth every penny.

My family of four spent four nights at the Hotel Indigo in late July/early August. We had two rooms in close adjacency. While the rooms were small, they had all the amenities and were quite comfortable. Given the hotel's location on a main city street, I was quite pleased with how quiet the rooms were during our entire stay. The...

We made the reservation three months before our arrival through IHG.com since I'm IHG Platinum member. It mentioned clearly that we need room with two beds since we have two small kids. When we arrived late, reception guy gave us room at the back with just one queen size bed with no view at all. Somewhat disappointed with the way...

Stopped here in March with my girlfriend for a long weekend away, and was not disappointed!

I stay in hotels on a regular basis on business and vacation. This is my hotel of choice when in Edinburgh. Located in York Place, which is the last stop on the tram line from the Airport, the hotel is within walking distance of all of the centre of Edinburgh. The rooms are spacious, the beds are really comfortable and...

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.
