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.

Very Clean room and hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Ideal location close to Station and all main shopping areas. Pubs and restaurants close by too. We will be re booking this hotel on our next trip to Edinburgh.

Hotel was in a great location for visiting the city. Room was small but clean. There are no facilities in the hotel other than a vending machine in the entrance area. Alright for a one night stay but not suitable for longer.

Is this the closest Travelodge to Edinburgh Playhouse and is it walking distance between them?
Yes this is very close to the Playhouse. Think it took us about 5-10 minutes to walk there (an easy walk just round the corner).

"Ask for the room on the second level that faces Princes Street (look toward the train station)!"
"Third floor is quiet! "
"A room with no daylight is unacceptable. A clear explanation should be offered before someone books such a room. "
"223, like a penthouse with great views down Princes Street "
"Although my room was on the main road it was sound proofed so not affected by traffic noise. "
US$55 - US$252 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
