We had one of the suites and it was fantastic. Nice and quite and very roomy. Breakfast was good but nothing special. Took quite the treasure hunt to figure out where to go for it though. Parking is a challenge as you have to park in the Omni structure next door but it was only 18.50 £ for overnight. Hotel...

Relaxing early dinner with family. This is a surprisingly large and very plush hotel. We enjoyed drinks at the bar, then dinner in the restaurant. Attentive staff,very pleasant surroundings and a central location being just down from Princes Street and right next to the Playhouse. Next time I would like to stay here!

Beautiful hotel. Wonderful location. Fantastic rooms with balconies and great views. We're worried that there would be noise from street but this was not the case and kids slept soundly!! Lovely welcoming front desk staff. Only let down was lack of attention to detail - missing glasses and complimentary water, one room not serviced and others not fully replenished then...

This is a great hotel to explore Edinburgh from. Enter the reception to a great smell where the staff cannot be helpful enough. A quick ride in the lift as you try to work out where the rooms are!! The lift opens on to a crescent of rooms wrapped round a great rooftop garden (I say great, this is Scotland...

Visited on the itison tasting menu voucher- the welcome drink was a bit odd, we were told we should have arrived half an hour earlier although that wasn't stated anywhere and felt a bit rushed. Apart from that service was really good. The lamb and the dessert were both excellent as was the wine selection, not overly fond of the...

So, I picked this hotel because it appeared modern and had good reviews. The location is fairly good, but it can be a hike to get to the Old Town or also to get to the retail strip of George's Street. We had a normal one bed room with the garden access. Now, the room is pretty large, but the...

We stayed here on our wedding night in the Auchentoshan Suite and it was absolutely amazing. The staff couldn't have been more helpful in showing us around and the suite practically screamed luxury from the moment we opened the door! The petit fours left for us were a lovely touch and very much appreciated. Despite being tired after the day's...

We picked the Glasshouse for two reasons, one it was conveniently located next to The Edinburgh Playhouse we had tickets for Sister Act, and two it looked like a really nice hotel from its website and other reviews were good. During the check in the receptionist was very pleasant and asked why we were in Edinburgh, I said it was...

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.
