I stayed in a family room with my parents. As long as you can manage stairs (no lift) this is a brilliant hotel for the money. Quiet, clean, friendly and within a short stroll to Princes street!
I highly recommend the Abbey hotel.
Staff was friendly, rooms are dated and small, but clean. Lounge in lobby has good prices but nobody in there. Great location 10 min walk to princess ave, 15 to royal mile. 5 min to bars or restaurants. Beautiful garden in the rear for reading...More
Decided to stay overnight in Edinburgh at the last minute. Clean and welcoming rooms, lovely building and friendly staff. Good location and it was pretty easy on the wallet. Would recommend it if you're looking for a bed and a hot breakfast.
I was at the Abbey hotel for a few nights, and had booked a 4-bed room with a group of friends. It's a cute little hotel run by a friendly Scottish couple. However the beds were rather uncomfortable which made it difficult to sleep well....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.
