Was great for a quick visit! Good location! Was a little noisy as we were on the main road but we didn’t mind as we were only there for one night! Staff were friendly enough! Spacious and Clean room! Great price for the city centre!
Twin room in basement roomy and clean. We didn't have an iron or ironing board but a request to the Spanish chap on reception provided quick results. He was very helpful and friendly with all enquiries. Breakfast much more than expected for a continental option....More

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.
