Stayed here for 2 nights. We were late arriving and then found we were on the very top floor. This was not a problem for us but it struck me that if you have mobility issues you would definitely struggle as there is no lift...More
We only stayed one night as we were joining a tour the next morning. I chose this hotel because it was close to the meeting point for the tour. The hotel was very tired. There was no TV or hairdryer in the room. I also...More

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.
