Stayed here with 3 friends in one big room. Place is in a neglected state. Mattrasses are far too soft. Shower has no pressure. Filthy carpets. Location in city center is OK. Breakfast mainly processed foods.
This hotel is located in what appears to be three 'row houses' that have been renovated as a single guest house. One part has no lift (elevator) and the steep and winding stairs are problematic. My room was large, but oddly situated. This was obviously...More

Booked at the last minute for some festival tourism, we found the hotel ideally placed - not too far out and not right in the centre either but an easy walk to anything going on. The area is a bit quieter as well and the...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.
