I stayed here one night to meet my sons in town for the Festival, a single room and private bathroom with breakfast sounded like just what I needed.
I arrived to be shown my single room, it was pretty small and no bathroom in the...More

Thanks for your review. Room 1a's website description is accurate, stating it has its own private facilities. However I will look at the website and try and make the description less confusing for some, many thanks for pointing this out.

Having looked at reviews prior to booking I'd expected a bit more. Wound up booking on Orbitz and it didn't indicate that my room did not have en suite bath. Upon check-in, staff informed me of this, which was disappointing. Then she stated breakfast hours,...More
There are definitely some good points: the host is nice, the breakfast is quite good, and the common lounge is very comfy. But there are problems. The room itself was very small, the furniture was very uncomfortable (it's one of those beds where you can...More

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.
