We got there a bit early but it was no problem at all to check in even though it was before set time. The building is beautiful and we were pleased with our room. The toilet and shower was very small but for us that was not a problem. Everything is in walking distance. I think our walk to the...

We stayed on the second floor, triple room. It was very clean. Beds are comfortable and quite the room was comfortably spacious. bright and airy. Breakfast was very good and abundant. Excellent hospitality by hotel owners. No lift available, but well worth the price. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely peaceful hotel located behind Carlton Hill, an easy five minute walk from restaurants and maybe 10 - 15 minutes from the centre. The room was huge with an immensely comfortable bed and the breakfast was generous and served very quickly each morning. It's actually incredible value - I have never had such a comfortable room in...

Housed in a Georgian terraced house on one of the most prestigious streets in Edinburgh, the Terrace Hotel beautiful encompasses everything that I would expect from an Edinburgh B&B. Large bedrooms decorated in a style that befits the building, friendly helpful staff, good hearty breakfast, central location, great price; it ticks all the required boxes. If you're looking for a...

This is a nice building converted into a hotel, near Princes Street. We stayed on the top floor, with an end suite bathroom and lovely view. There were a lot of stairs, but we were warned about that before we came by the owners which was very nice of them. The room was really large and clean, I really liked...

Royal terrace is a stunning row of beautiful Georgian residences--many now converted into hotels , bars and restaurants. Its a very central location and handy for Princes Street , Leith Walk and the many restaurants and shops. Our room was smallish even though I think we were upgraded to a triple, but it was good value for money . The...

Thank you for your review. Re:croissants. Croissants deteriorate rapidly so we keep a supply in our freezer and take out a few each morning. On request we warm them in the oven for a few minutes. There is a notice at the toast dispenser counter advising guests to 'just ask' for croissants. I think it also says this on the...

I felt like I'd travelled back in time staying at this place. Very authentic, old style house. The opposite of soulless. Comfortable beds. Nice friendly staff. Yes you have to climb some stairs but most people should be able to manage this. Great viewpoints for the city just outside the door, and even better from Calton Hill just behind 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.
