We stayed during the festival so we probably paid way over the odds but the hotel was really convenient and the room was nice.
The hotel is situated only 5 minutes walk from Waverley station so you're very central.

We had room 410 on the top floor which was really good for us. It's quiet considering the cobbled street outside and really big! Bath/shower room is big too and the shower is the best yet in any hotel we have stayed in! The only...More
Nice looking hotel that merges three former houses in Albany street.
We booked with booking.com. For our first night we had a room at the top floor ... it was small and smelly because you could not open a window. And even worse ... you...More
Great location, within easy walking distance to Waverley train station and shops. Very clean rooms, good amenities, beautiful decore', extremely comfortable bed with quality linen, friendly helpful staff. I'd definitely stay here again.

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.
