Had a fantastic stay. Perfect central location. Very attentive staff. Excellent but pricey cocktails in bar.beautiful pool and spa area, although water was a little cold. Would have liked plug sockets by bed to charge phone but other than that, no complaints.

.Very nice hotel, if a little pricey for what you get. Located in a great location, well within walking distance of all the usual tourist hot spots like the castle, Royal Mile etc. The hotel doesn't have a dedicated car park, you have to use a multi storey which is close by. If you come by train that wont be...

We've stayed here quite a lot and it's a great hotel. Upgraded room well worth it and eat breakfast in it! Bar is nice, all staff very helpful. We won't eat again in the resteraunt but the food was fine, just a lack of atmosphere. We will be back to the hotel, great view of Calton and perfect location for...

Lovely hotel. Quick and efficient check in. Twin room was clean and quiet. No view but that was okay as we were out of the room during daylight. Buffet continental breakfast was included in the price. This offered a wide variety of breads, cereals, fruits, cooked meats and cheese. The spa was an nice treat but the area was very...

One city, a number of Apex hotels and something very special about each. Let's get the basics done, it's spotlessly clean and the hotel exudes an old world, old Edinburgh quality. On arriving we'd been upgraded to a suite and it was quite exceptional. Clean, hugely spacious, superbly well appointed, the bed was as comfortable as our own. We were...

Enjoyed the hotel amenities including the complimentary pool and sauna. Highly recommend treating yourself to at least one of their massages -- very relaxing and knowledgeable team of therapists. The concierge helped us find a restaurant for my birthday dinner. This ended up being the best meal of our trip. The location is central. You can walk pretty much everywhere...

During my visit the internet connection was temperamental and this in addition to total lack of mobile phone signal in some low level rooms makes this a poor choice when on business. The room was very clean and very well appointed but the lack of comms would put me off from staying again.

The hotel is very close to Edinburgh Waverly station, about a 2 to 3 minute walk. The hotel is also very close to many points of interest. The room is comfortable and quite spacious. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, a bath tub and a large sink. Was quite disappointed in seeing only 1 bed side had an outlet. The...

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.
