Absolutely fantastic location. Easily walkable to princes St, Hollyrood, theatre, good bars and restaurants etc. Lovely Georgian terrace in a quiet street.
The staff couldn't have done a better job. When I said I was doing the Great Edinburgh run they moved forward the time...More

We recently had a great stay at Halcyon Hotel! It was situated in an excellent spot, close enough to walk into the city centre yet still tucked away enough that we got a peaceful night's sleep. The building was charming and clean and the staff...More

Just returned from an overnight stay at this wee hidden Gem.
It all started a few weeks ago when we were meant to stay and the visit had to be cancelled. The gentleman who runs the hotel couldn't have been more helpful and allowed us...More

Many thanks for taking the time to post your great review. I really appreciate it and will share it to the team.
Our building is a Georgian listed town house on one of the oldest terraces in Europe, and the rooms are really well proportioned....More
Just returned from a very disappointing stay. Stunning building but unfortunately passed off as full of character instead of old, tired and dated. No double glazing so a noisy night, not to mention an early start alarm from next door curtesy of very thin walls....More

We were disappointed to read the review, given the fantastic reviews we get.
Nearly 300 positive ones posted to our website (halcyon-hotel dot com).
Our hotel is a listed Georgian period building and unfortunately does not suit everybody’s taste and appreciation of historic architecture.

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.
