Staff exceptionally helpful and cheery, rooms spotless and fantastic layout of the rooms! Great location. Stayed at the Caledonian last time we were in Edinburgh and isn't a patch on this hotel. Rarely happens but we were so sad to leave after our stay, would highly recommend and will be back next time we're in Edinburgh.

Stayed in the Glasshouse Hotel for just one night but we had an amazing stay. The staff were super friendly, the room had plenty of tea and coffee (including a nespresso machine) and dressing gowns, slippers and white fluffy towels. We had the continental breakfast buffet which was also amazing, a good selection of fruit, yoghurt, pastries, porridge and fresh... More

Great location and nice hotel with friendly staff. Have stayed here twice this year and would recommend it. Very nice breakfast which can some times get rather busy, but otherwise well done. Within walking distance of everywhere that you wish to go in Edinburgh

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.
