My partner and I stayed here for five nights during the Fringe Festival and had a great time. The superior suite was a good sized room with a kitchen area and the room was kept nicely clean through our stay. Special mention must got to...More
If you want accommodation that doesn't rip you off during the Festival, then this is it! For a very reasonable price you get an apartment style room with microwave, fridge, kettle, tea coffee - LUXURY biscuits (much appreciated when coming back from late bars!), muffins,...More
We couldn't fault the place. Great location and clean comfortable accommodation. Free breakfast (muffin, juice, water, milk, coffee) and internet are plus. Friendly staff. We would recommend it and stay here again.
Me and my friend stayed here for our holiday. You can't fault it, nice rooms, everything you really need is provided. It's above a sauna but that doesn't fault it one bit, especially as there is a separate door.

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.
