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.

I booked this hotel due to the fantastic location- on arrival at 12pm I was suprised the room was ready and the check in was quick. The room was spotlessly clean and had almost everything we needed. The only exception was a plug next to...More

No idea where the Christmas market is but it is really in the center so I guess yes. I didn’t used a car park as arrived by plane so dirty I will not help with vouchers but you can easily ask at the. Hotel.
