Ideally located next to Calton Hill, don't miss the easy walk with some stunning views! The Parliament Hotel is located just a few minutes walk away from some nice restaurants, and cafes. Our hotel room was warm and comfortable with an en-suite bathroom, and it provided all the usual facilities you would expect. We had breakfast and dinner once in...

Considering some of the soft reviews I had read, I was a little anxious about coming to this great old hotel. What an ideal location, right next to Carton Hill and a lovely walk up the hill and easy access down the hill to Hollyrood Palace. From their we walked back up the Royal Mile and then turned back towards...

Location is great if you're arriving by train, 5 mins walk from Waverley railway station. Set in a very quiet neighbourhood, it's right on Calton Hill which is itself a must-see attraction in Edinburgh; you're only a few uphill steps away from great views over the city, the surrounding mountains and the Firth of Forth. Our room was quite comfortable...

At £210 a night without breakfast I expected things to be right....On arrival there was no milk to make a drink and the TV didnt work. The room itself was nice although on closer inspection the floor was covered in hair. On return to the room the next day I had to return to reception for milk and the TV...

Just a few minutes from the station. All really good service. Just remember to approach via Calton Road so you don't have to climb the hill!!! Cannot fault for the price - more choice in restaurant would have been good but really nice food anyway.

This is the 3rd time I've been to Edinburgh and each time I stay at the Parliament House hotel. Transport is easy since it's about a 5 minute walk to Waverley station, and a 10 minute walk to the airport bus which leaves every 10 minutes. The atmosphere in the hotel is very cosy and comfortable - I recommend winding...

We had a very nice five night stay here. A ten minute walk from Waverly station on a very quiet street. There was a minibar available, which we did not use. There was a kettle with tea/coffee makings. There was a tub/shower in a nicely fitted bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. Free wifi in the room was included. Downstairs...

This hotel has a great location just at the end of Princes Street close to Carlton Hill. It is easy to reach from the station and it's easy to explore the centre of Edinburgh from the hotel. The hotel decor and rooms are very pleasant, spacious clean and comfortable. What let the hotel down was breakfast which you 'enjoy' in...

This hotel is ideally situated to enjoy all the sights and attractions of Edinburgh. The decor is somewhat faded but the hotel is clean and the staff welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was good, served in the hotel's bistro. We asked for a quiet room and had a great night's sleep. Very good value for an overnight in the centre...

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.
