Comfortable bed. Shared shower room. Spacious family room which was more than I needed and didn't seem badly priced. Not a B&B unless you order breakfast as an option. Very well placed for Princes Street attractions as well as York Place. Just over the road from where I needed to go.

Stayed in this B&B for two nights recently. We got a double room on the first floor with an en-suite. It was a big room at the back of the building and also a warm room as we had the window the whole trip. It was a clean enough room, bed linen and towels were fine. The duvet and pillows...

The good: The York House has a really good central Edinburgh location, within easy walking distance of Waverly train station, tourist sites of interest in the old and new towns, and a great selection of restaurants and bars. Our room had ensuite bath, with a reliable shower. The room was at the back of the hotel and very quiet for...

Thought it was excellent value for money. £75 for a massive triple room right in central Edinburgh about 7 mins walk from train station. Staff couldn't do enough for us and let us leave our luggage there whilst we trailed around the uni. Breakfast lovely and all rooms including breakfast room light and airy and full of character. Rooms lots...

I was here last week for two night with a friend.. The room was not so good as also the bathroom.. The door, oh the door.. I don't know how the door was left standing! Unfortunately, the price was too high! The only nice thing was the staff, so kind!

Basic Hotel but clean friendly and good value too! 5 minute walk from Waverley railway station hence really central for the sights and attractions, plenty of Cafe's, a Comedy Club and McDonalds/KFC around the corner, the rooms at the front might be a bit noisy for some but didn't bother Me as York Place is a busy road. I will...

We stayed at York House Hotel for a night. The location was perfect, within 10mins walking distance of Edinburgh Waverley train station and a short walk to other attractions. The room was spacious with good heating, the toilet was large and clean. The ladies at the reception were exceptionally polite and friendly. Excellent service!

Location for this hotel is actually really good so I am guessing that is why it is a top hotel price when it is actually a low rate B&B. Room and bathroom were clean and the staff were very nice. There is no lift and we were on the third floor, so taking cases up was quite a chore. Room...

York House is about 6 minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley. It's a budget place where you have to share a bathroom and the room is simple, just stocked with things you need. However, when I got there, I was given the most excellent welcome from a lovely Italian lady. She recommended the Conan Doyle pub (near to where the Sherlock...

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.
