We loved this updated hotel and the convenience of the location. We were able to walk to and from the Edinburgh Royal Mile tourist center from morning until late at night. A real plus for us was being so conveniently close to the train station....More
First time I've stayed here but doubt I will stay again.
That might make the place sound bad but it was far from that, it's just that I like places with a bit more finesse and luxury and am prepared to pay for it.

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.
