Neighbourhood
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.

This hotel has a good location, a smart facade and a friendly welcome. Great view from the room. Everything you would expect from a HIEx. Unusually I felt 3 stars was more appropriate than 4 due to the uncomfortable bed. A very odd feature as the beds are usually fine in this

Highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express. Brilliant location, great amenities. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean with everything you could need. Breakfast was good, nothing too fancy but a good start to the day.

"Book a double room with 2 beds"
"Third floor was quiet, we had the window view of a small courtyard with no noise."
"Stairs could a problem for wheelchair customers."
"Avoid a room that looks onto the back courtyard where the heating/air conditioning units are located which can create some excessive noise."
"The rooms we had were very quiet but as they were basement, the view was not good."
