The York apartment were amazing... We couldn't ask for better, from the staff to the location everything I couldn't recommend it enough. You could come with either friend, friends couple I think it would suit anyone really.

Very good service. Before travel, we received travel information and suggestion. Email response was very prompt. I received message just when the flight landed, feeling cared. We arrived much later than schedule, and the staff was very patiently waiting for us. Very easy check in and check out. Good space, excellent location.

A great location in the city centre. Lots of space in the apartment with large beds for every member of the family. We had a great welcome from the host who showed us around. The facilities were great. The only disappointment was the wifi and internet access in the basement which was poor probably because we were underground. Other than...

Perfect location for Edinburgh centre. Christmas markets are lovely. Grateful for the upgrade to the larger apartment. Friendly and helpful staff who took our lugagge early and even carried it all up the 3 flights of stairs for our check in time. Perfect apartment with loads of space, warm and comfortable. Amazing views completed our trip. Will definitely book again.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
