Upon arriving, I was greeted with a bit of a building site. I was a little worried at first as no one had mentioned anything before our stay. Although this was going I found it did not effect my stay. The rooms were lovely and...More

On arrival at the hotel there was a decorator sitting on the steps outside the door having a cigarette, I asked if we could use that door and he said that we could but be careful coz there's a painter up scaffolding behind the door....More
Stayed for 2 nights.
Lots of building work and decorating going on which was a bit of a nuisance.
We paid 110 a night for single rooms , the room was small and bathroom pokey. The sink tap appeared to be fitted backwards.
Stayed for just one very cold Edinburgh night and received a very warm welcome especially from concierge Jamie if I remember right 28.01.15. In the middle a refurbishment but did not affect quality of stay. Great room 205? overlooking street. Quality buffet breakfast.

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.
