    Room very small, my bedroom at home is bigger. Room is quite dusty. Good location though, close to city centre. Not a 4 star and isn’t a boutique hotel really. 3 star at best. Probably wouldn’t stay again.

    Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
    malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
    have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
