          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

          We will be there in a couple weeks. I have a few questions: 1. Do the rooms have a mini refrigerator? 2. Is there a complimentary coffee station for guests 24/7? If not are there coffeemakers in the rooms? If so- what kind of coffee makers? Thank you
