    Good base for a trip to Edinburgh. Hotel is basic and can be very busy checking in. Breakfast is also extremely busy. I would book in advance as the rate they charge for on the day booking is totally not worth it.

    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
