The hotel is located in downtown Edinburgh about 15 minutes walk from the Royal Mile. It's close to lots of places to eat. The Glasshouse is a Marriott property, and I have Marriott status, so when I arrived I was informed I got free continental breakfast and a bottle of Prosecco was waiting in my room. I also got a...

If you are looking for something different close to all the best sights of Edinburgh - then look no further than The Glasshouse. Sadly, we were only there for one night but we will definitely return for a longer stay. From the moment you enter the door you feel welcomed and special. We had upgraded ourselves to an executive room...

Stayed for the night of the Scottish Food and Drinks Awards. Really nice quirky 5 star hotel!!! Wouldn't hesitate to return. Rooms stunning, and breakfast superb! Wished I could have had longer in this hotel. Might come back before Christmas?

Maybe it was just because we had been traveling all day, but the instant we walked into our room, we both looked at each other and said, "let's just move in forever." The staff was exceptionally kind and helpful and made us feel right at home. The bed, oh my, the bed. Possibly the best sleep I've ever had. The...

This is a very beautiful and stylish hotel, with kind and friendly staff. However, I feel a few things fall short of its five star status. The food we ordered via room service was bland and the cooked breakfast was similarly lacking. Some of the service was also a bit muddled. I have heard such glowing reviews about this place,...

I had a wonderful at this great city boutique hotel. The rooms are modern, clean and have great view on Carlton Hill. You even have your own little sitting area in the afternoon sun! The service is great, welcoming and friendly. Especially at breakfast. Location wise it is ideal. In the city center with all attractions close by. I would...

I stayed here for 4 nights and because my husband is platinum, we got upgraded to one of the "whiskey suites". It was a large spacious room with a huge balcony looking out onto the city. The best part of the room was the bathroom! The floors were heated and that tub was amazing. Breakfast was delicious especially the porridge...

We stayed at The Glasshouse earlier this year with our young son. On arrival we were welcomed by Dorian, who has to be one of the most genuine people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting! What a surprise we had, when we found out we had been upgraded to one of their fabulous suites overlooking their 2 acre...

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.
