Centrally located hotel near the train, bus station. Also bus and trams on doorstep. Theatre next door and a variety of restaurants nearby. A lovely hotel with only around 77 rooms but a lot of them suites either on the roof top garden looking out to observatory or looking out over the front of hotel above the omni centre. Large...

Lovely hotel, beautiful room opening out onto patio and grassed area. Reception area small but deceptive. Great breakfast in excellent dining room. Near tram stop for easy reach of airport - scenic tram ride would recommend.

The glasshouse. I booked a twin room using my Marriott points it was seamless, upon early arrival our early check in was noted and our room ready. A good sized comfortable room with all amenities, a lovely bathroom, both a bath and a separate shower was nice. The facade of the reception is an old church, the rooms spread over...

A great location close to the centre of Edinburgh. The rooftop garden overlooking Calton Hill is spectacular. Staff were very helpful and allowed us to check in early (we'd arrived on the sleeper train from London)

We visited for one night on Valentines in a deluxe suite. Gorgeous room with a massive bath and a separate sitting area! Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Reception staff were really friendly and could not do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend and would return in a heartbeat!

The Glasshouse is a beautiful, modern hotel with interesting history. I stayed for 3 nights on business in the fall of 2016. My room was large with a wall of glass overlooking the unexpected and enormous rooftop garden, which overlooks a mountain park that sits in the center of the city. It is a peaceful oasis in the midst of...

My wife and I spent a night away in Edinburgh to celebrate a birthday. Bearing in mind the hotel is centrally located and 5 star we were pleasantly surprised at the room charge, but it was off season. Our room overlooked Leith walk which is a very busy road, but there was little noise in our room, however others might...

Just had a fantastic 2 night stay at the Glasshouse. Every member of staff we encountered were highly professional and went overboard to make us feel welcome. The breakfast room is so relaxing and came with an extra benefit this morning of free Prosecco. The food itself was excellent with a great variety of choice. Unfortunately, because of the weather,...

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.
