Our overall experience of this hotel was not up to our expectation. We are not novice or difficult travellers but this establishment left quite a bit to be desired as far as we were concerned. Our first morning saw us with a flooded bathroom due to a leaking pipe. It was attended to quickly, nevertheless uncomfortable. As we left our...

Its super close to Edinburgh Waverly station, which is what we had wanted, just walk out of the station and make a left and walk straight down for a couple of minutes. Hotel is located on a very quiet street and you could reach Parliament of Scotland by keep walking down the lane. Room was big and wifi was fast....

Stayed at this hotel fo 1 night in May. Building is interesting made up of several properties merged into a hotel. Room good well equipped and appeared to be recently decorated. Lounge area furnished to match the age of the building. Very good bistro as part of the hotel. We had an excellent meal in the evening and breakfast was...

The hotel is very central and close to interesting locations for tourists, 2 m inutes to the Leith Street and to the Royal Mile. Rooms are clean and nice. Breakfast is also good. Its not so near the Scotisch Parliament as the name of the hotel suggests, you need a 15 minutes walk! Take note that Carlton Road is different...

Really great location close to the Calton Hill. The room was spacious and really good beds. The deco is beatiful and the only downside was that our room J56 was too far away - had to walk up and down and around which was nice. Lovely breakfast and great coffee. The staff were helpful and happy.

It has taken me a few weeks to write this review. Initially after staying I was too upset and just couldn't be objective. So, here is the positive: it is well located to Prince street, bars, and restaurants. The beds are comfy and the room was spacious. The negative: The Deputy Manager needs to go through a course in customer...

Parliament House hotel is situated down a quaint cobbled road just a short stroll from the shops and bars of Edinburgh. The hotel has a real fire in the reception area. My room had a nice view of Carlton Hill which is a 3 minute walk from the hotel and offers great views over the city and countryside. The room...

Loved the location. Staff friendly. Bedroom comfy, ensuite cramped with no where to put toiletries. Was woken by the sound of running water when someone else flushed their loo or emptied a bath or sink extremely loud. Bistro very poor for evening meal. 6pm sit down but no steak available which were two items on the mains. How could this...

We have just returned from a short break to Edinburgh and stayed for 3 nights at the Parliament House Hotel. This is a delighted hotel only a 5 minute stroll from Waverley Station and situated in a quiet back street. It has old world Scottish charm and a warm welcome is provided by the staff as soon as you step...

The hotel was within a short walking distance to the station and Princes St. We were at the very top so had a nice view , but unfortunately it was 73 steps up. There, apparently was a lift but not directly up to the top, so had to carry our suitcases up. We are fairly fit and struggled. The room...

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.
