Perfect location!
First visit to Edinburgh and found the Radisson to be a perfect location. The majority of attractions were within a easy walk from the hotel. Also close by were many restaurants and the train station.

Fantastic place to stay to explore Edinburgh. Located right on the Royal Mile. Walking distance to Edinburgh Castle, restaurants and shopping. We were upgraded and enjoyed the luxury of a junior suite. Conciege was very helpful.

Good hotel let down by poor breakfast.
Nice room, great location and good facilities let down by disappointing breakfast. The food quality was good but all items in the breakfast buffet were lukewarm at best. All looked good until the taste test came, only to discover it was not very warm at all...

Edinburgh break
A lovely hotel, loved all the well thought out design features and comfort in our room. Very central for lots of pubs, restaurants, sightseeing and shopping. Breakfast was lovely and loved the seating area which was designed well too. The cleaning staff seemed to be a have a bit too much to do as the lady came to clean our room at 6pm after we’d returned from our day out. We weren’t bothered and didn’t have it cleaned, but some people would be. The lady was lovely and gave us refills of tea/coffee etc but I felt sorry for her as she obviously wasn’t able to complete all her work in the time allowed. It was a lovely stay and we received a warm welcome all staff were friendly. ou happily stay here again.

Great stay. We were upgraded too which was really nice. Lovely room with a big bed. A tip for anyone who had booked parking at the hotel is to park first and then check on as you cannot wait on the roads around the hotel and parking attendants are very active.

ok stay
For some reason, the price charged at check-our was higher than had been arranged, so we had to correct it which took a little while. The bed was extremely uncomfortable- while options for others were stated, by the time we got into bed to go to sleep it was too late to do so. Breakfast was mediocre but expensive, with many items depleted by the time we got there. In all, while the location was very convenient, the hotel was decidedly average.

Brilliant stay in Edinburgh
Really fantastic stay at the Radisson Blu. Room was clean and large, the location was excellent (really close to bars, shops, tourist attractions in Old Town) and the staff were really friendly. Definitely recommend!
