Can't say enough good things about the hotel. Small and comfortable, it was about a 3 minute walk from Waverly Station, in a nice quiet neighborhood, and near various dining venues. My king-bedded room, while small, had enough room to walk around, not on top of, the bed; the shower worked perfectly, the TV the same, lighting was adequate. The...

The Hotel was clean, and the reception ladies tried their best. However, be careful with the reservations you make, especially if buying a "prepaid" fare or you could feel that you are saving paying in advance, to feel that you are charged again once you are there. The hotel is clean, but not having even a telephone in the room...

Stayed in this hotel a few times now for some long weekends down in Edinburgh. Nothing fancy but quiet, clean and perfect for the amount of time we spent at the hotel which was literally just getting ready and sleeping. So central, perfect for the city - only thing is I would recommend taking your own hairdryer since Travelodge's are...

Just stayed the one night but this is a great place to stay . Very close to city centre, and very handy for bus and rail connections. Plenty of places to eat and drink just a walk away. As Christmas village was there it was a great bonus.

Maybe we were unlucky with our allocated room after seeing previous reviews. Our room was dated, small and not that clean. On entering the room it was like an oven, maybe a lot of people would be glad of this, however, not my idea of pleasant. The damp smell was awful. The bathroom was in need of a proper clean...

This hotel is close to the station meaning you dont have far to trek with your bags. Hotel is willing to store bags until you can check in, meaning you are free to explore straight away without being weighed down. It is basic but all i needed it for was somewhere to sleep after shopping all day. Clean and tidy.

Great base for a trip to Edinburgh, 2 minute walk to Princes Street and lots of eating and drinking places within easy reach. Room was clean and tidy. On checking in noticed only 1 bath towel i had hardly said the words and there was a chap at the door with a bath towel - brilliant! Staff were great asked...

This Travelodge has a perfect quiet location minutes from both Princess street and the old town. Very clean, not very large room but it was perfect for our overnight stay. Check in and out was quick and efficient. We had tea/coffee making facilities often missing in budget hotels like easyjet. Although available on request I would have liked a hair...

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.
