I spent two nights staying at this guesthouse in Edinburgh. It's a lovely old building in a convenient part of the city for accessing most things. It was booked fairly last minute and I arrived quite late on the Saturday. The owner kindly stayed up...More
Stayed in a single room with only daylight via a small skylight.
Advantage was that the room was quiet.
Room was small, clean and simple.
Staff was friendly.
Because I left too early to get breakfast, they provided a some fruits and juice.
I stayed at the Halcyon House for a week when I recently went to Edinburgh for a conference. This place exceeded all my expectations!
Since my plane landed at 7am, I was hoping to be able to leave my suitcases at the hotel until check-in,...More
Excellent location with gentle walk to city centre so no need to use car once arrived. Plenty of on street parking although we stayed at weekend which was free but would be expensive midweek. Rooms were spacious and spotless with hearty breakfast to set you...More

Many thanks for your lovely review.

United Kingdom > Scotland > Edinburgh > 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.
