This place is a one-star hostel at best. Don’t stay there! Our so called “deluxe” room looked nothing like the photo on hotels.com. “A shelter for the homeless” would be a more fitting description. It was bare minimum with run-down furniture, threadbare linens and towels,...More

This is not super comfortable, nor can it boast any kind of luxury, but none of this was advertised, so I was fairly happy with my accommodation. In a month when the festival is roaring through Edinburgh, this is a very quite corner just 5...More

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

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
