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
I was under no illusions that this was a student studio flat and not a 4* hotel, but having read some of the reviews on here (after booking) I was slightly scared about what I might find! I have to say I was, on the...More

We booked through Expedia which had a great description and great pictures of the place.

My wife and I checked out photos of James Craig Court and it looked fine for a one night stay. Edinburgh was very busy with the fringe festival so getting our usual spot was impossible.

United Kingdom > Scotland > Edinburgh > 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.
