Ideal location for city center, clean, polite and friendly staff. Reasonably priced for the location. Had single room right at the top with excellent views over city. En-suite was spotless, and no dust anywhere. Recommended.

The B&B is a short walk from Waverley station and close to the main shopping street and nightlife around the theatre area. The building is amazing - I was on the top floor at the rear, so away from the main road and with one of the best views you will ever get of Edinburgh. My single room was a...

I stayed here for one night during the Edinburgh festival and found the location very central and convenient, especially as it's so close to Waverley station. It only took 10 minutes to walk there with my suitcase. The manager was very friendly and made me feel very welcome straight away. Unfortunately, my room wasn't ready when I arrived, but they...

This was an excellent place to stay when visiting Edinburgh. York Place is quite central and has a great comedy club (The Stand) at one end and a good pub (The Conan Doyle) at the other then a short walk to Princes Street. The B&B is brilliant, really comfortable and clean with a very friendly welcome. I had a front...

The rooms are very large & well furnished, & the staff is very friendly. The breakfast is excellent. The location, right between New Town and the city centre, is amazing -- you can walk to most places in central Edinburgh from here. And New Town itself is beautiful & well worth exploring. A top choice for a b&b in Edinburgh.

Very nice B&B in the heart of Edinburgh. The location is hard to beat: in the New Town, close to Waverley station and easy access to any part of town. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful. Breakfast is nice, and you can even have cooked breakfast. My single room was quite big with an amazing view of the north...

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.
