A great hotel, ideally located. I booked a business room and was pleased to see some welcoming snacks in the room, plus a knock on the door with some still water. The restaurant was excellent, especially the "wee taster" menu. I will be back....

All 50+ in our group stayed at the Radisson Blu in Edinburgh for 3 nights in mid-August, and we had excellent service. Despite the crowds nearby who were attending the Fringe Festival, our room was a quiet and comfortable oasis from the mayhem outside. We had some initial issues with getting the temperature just right, but the front desk sent... More

We stayed at the Radisson Blu on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh the last of July and the first of August, 2014. We also had Opening Night tickets to The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. What a privilege to walk down the hill from the Castle to our rooms while everyone else is scrambling to meet their bus. Wowza!

We've stayed at this hotel before but won't do so again. We were given a tiny room - smaller than many we've had on cruise ships. Then there was a fire alarm at 2.30am. We had to get dressed and evacuate the hotel. It turned out to be a false alarm. As I explained to the management, our house burned... More

Dear BigMan468, It's really disappointing to hear that your recent stay didn't live up to past experiences of the hotel. As per our previous correspondence with you, I can only apologise for the inconvenience caused by the fire alarm in the early hours.

The hotel is ideal for seeing Edinburgh as it is on the Royal Mile. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are a good size and there is a vast selection for breakfast. The hotel is clean.

The hotel has a great location on the Royal Mile making it easy to navigate various places of interest within walking distance. What was remarkable was the attentiveness and courtesy extended by each staff (reception, concierge, housekeeping etc). The breakfast spread is impressive. The rooms are reasonably large, neat and clean. With many attractions to be covered in and around... More

The hotel is old and dated. I know I stayed there during the high season, but I don't think I got very good value for my money. The location is very central and a short walk to many to the Castle, Holyrood Palace and the shopping area.

We booked a "weekend superbreak" to Edinburgh to include the Military Tattoo. This hotel is not a cheap hotel (in monetary terms) and was double the price as it was August and both the Fringe and the Tattoo were taking place. On arrival, although I had all my booking paperwork they appeared to have only allocated 2 rooms not 3... More

I was impressed by the size of the rooms and also the great manner of all the staff. The breakfast I found amazing and could not get enough of it. The design of the place is very pleasing too. THe location is absolutely unbeatable and is at the heart of the bustling city.
