    malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
    have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
    mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village

    Hi. The tram goes directly from the airport to right outside the hotel. York place is the final stop so you can't miss the stop.
