Absolute stunning hotel. Fantastic facilities with great food served. Staff very attentive and helpful - real professionals at their job. An anniversary night at the theatre and a perfect night stay in a first class hotel - perfect gift.

perfect location, close to Waverley Station and Princess Street shops and the sights. We stayed in a twin room on the 8th floor which had all the amenities we needed. Lovely cocktails in the bar and dinner in Elliot's restaurant. We had the early bird menu which had a good choice and was well priced and good quality. Couple of...

A stone's throw from the train station, and to the major sights. A few minutes walk to the Royal Mile and main shopping district. The hotel is classy, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Service is top notch, ordered room service and the food was very good. Can't go wrong with an Apex hotel!

I stayed at the hotel two days ago. The hotel is located five minutes from Waverly station and right in the middle of the downtown area. If you take the elevator to the "zero" floor, there is a direct passage to the train station. It is very convenient when you're in a rush to catch a train. My check-in was...

The hotel was beautiful. Great location. Our room was on the 10th floor, we had a sea view and it was lovely. The bed was the most comfortable we've slept in. Lovely big shower and super clean. All the staff were delightful and could not have been more helpful. The spa was very relaxing, quiet and calm. The breakfast was...

I stayed at the Waterloo Place on the last day of a four-day stay in Edinburgh with friends. I booked a Deluxe room and a City Double for two of my friends. Upon arrival everything is clean, modern and impressive plus it's only a couple minutes from the rather overpriced Balmoral/ central Edinburgh. I was informed that my room had...

A friend and I stayed here on Saturday for a shopping weekend. We arrived early from the airport and were expecting to just drop our cases at reception as it was 9.30am and we assumed our room was not ready.

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.
