I stayed here on two separate non consecutive days. The Rabbis bus tours leave early from across the street so I stayed here before and after on my only two days in Edinburgh. The location was perfect for me and it is perfect for people...More
On the plus side, the location is great, the free wi-fi is excellent, TV with Bose speakers and coffee machine were nice bonuses.
The cleanliness of our bathroom was very poor. Having paid over £600 for a 3 night stay in a Double Deluxe...More

Travelled in December to celebrate a 70th Birthday with Family including my young son (1 & 1/2) and it was fantastic. The hotel is about 3 minutes by foot from the train station and in the heart of the city so great for exploring. Rooms...More
I have stayed here in the last week and can comment that the hotel is very good, location excellent, transport links very good. The tram from the airport is within 200m of the hotel. The food and my room were very good.

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.
