After reding the reviews on here I was quite worried but was pleasently surprised when we got there. yes the hotel is going through some changes, but for £59 a room in a hotel which is more or less situated in the city centre on a friday night is great value for money. The room wasnt completely finished but had...

For my 9 night stay in Edinburgh during the fringe festival I opted to pick somewhere just out of the hustle and bustle. I found the location of York Place B&B, just next the the restaurant district on Rose St, ideally placed. However this B&B is changing names to 'The Place', and going with that change marketing itself as a...

Abominable! Not as advertised, room incomplete, no kettle, no cups, not a toilet roll holder, bathroom incomplete, no hairdryer or bins, had to ask for all. Noisy, building work, could hear staff talking, doors banging and phone ringing during the late evening hours due to them using a bedroom as an office, didn't include breakfast, wasn't offered breakfast, nor shown...

The hotel is undergoing a refurbishment and, despite having booked as far back as January, we were put in a room which hadn't been refurbished. Our room - room 5 - was situated on the second floor, which meant climbing up two steep flights of stairs as there were no lifts. Fortunately we only had a small bag each. The...

Not sure where some of the other people stayed. When we arrived the manager told me they would need to get into our room for some remodeling work the next day but he had a deal for me we could have 2 rooms and a free breakfast instead. I work in the business field and was willing to work with...

The hotel is in bad need of repair. Our room was full of dust and the bathroom was in need of repair. There was a large crack in the ceiling. The bed linens were practically bare so you were sleeping directly on a mattress - so unsanitary. The staff was unhelpful - when they were available - which was rare....

never again! unfriendly staff and a small old furnished room. Only saving grace was the situation. Only use if you have to.

Lovely, Victorian, high-ceilinged place with only 12 or so rooms that were very clean and comfortable. A cooked breakfast was offered for £7, but there was already a nice enough continental. The place was marvellously central, being less than 10 mins walk to the Royal Mile. I paid £35/night, which was superb. The pub just across the road (Conan Doyle)...

An absolute disgrace. Rude, arrogant and amazingly unhelpful. These people obviously weren't looking for repeat business from us and were out to make a quick buck. I would highly recommend you do not stay here under any circumstances.

I really can't say anything bad about this place. The room was over my expectations for what I paid. The furniture was quite lovely, had a great flat screen TV, super duper clean and a percolator. Two large windows (that were a bit drafty) but a great little heater. Beautiful little street. A block from a Harvey Nicks and the...

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.
