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.

Stayed here for 1 night while we went to the Edinburgh Playhouse for Motown the Musical. Very handy with a short walk to the Playhouse. Room was very comfy. The only draw back was no plug socket beside the mirror for the wife to do...More

No idea where the Christmas market is but it is really in the center so I guess yes. I didn’t used a car park as arrived by plane so dirty I will not help with vouchers but you can easily ask at the. Hotel.
