If it were possible I'd give this hotel 3 1/2 stars (it's better than "average" but not "very good"). The location alone is probably enough to overcome any issues I encountered (see below) - as it is right on the royal mile and within a short walk to the main attractions. As I was traveling with a family member, we... More

Room was clean and spacious. Hotel couldn't be more conveniently located. It is right in the middle of the Royal Mile. Waverley Station is a short walk downhill on the cross street. The included breakfast was very good. They had a steam table loaded with a lot of hot foods like eggs, bacon, haggis, potato scones, etc. Plus, they had... More

Central, helpful employees, good breakfast, will stay again. The proximity to Pricess street (shopping), The Castle (culture and food/drink) smakes this hotel attractive for me. Close to Railaway, always a taxi outside to grab, easy to come in or go out.

Stayed for 5 nights in September 2014 as part of our Ryder Cup vacation. King room on the 4th floor. The location is really all you could hope for. Right on the Royal Mile, an easy walk to Waverley Station and any number of restaurants and attractions. Lots of pubs nearby, and always a taxi waiting just outside the front... More

If your looking for a Hotel in a great location with above average amenities this is the place in Edinburgh! This is the second time I have stayed at this location and both times have been great. Its a little hard to navigate the hotel as its a bit choppy on the floors and the elevators are extremely small but... More

The location of the Radisson Blu is excellent, half way along the royal mile. All the attractions can be reached within 15 minutes walking. Rooms are of an excellent standard, clean and well ventilated, both the breakfast and evening meal were of a very good standard, my only issue was with the Bar prices within the hotel. I have travelled... More

Stayed for one night and from start to finish the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more professional. Able to check in early as soon as the room was ready, on staff suggestion - didn't even have to ask. Lovely quiet room (as requested) with a fantastic view, extra treats laid on were lovely surprise (I had mentioned on booking... More

Stayed only for one night. Managed to check in 2 hours early without being charged extra. The room was facing Arthur's seat and reasonable size. On third floor. Very quite and slept well. Standard hotel room amenities with free fast wifi. There was a small swimming pool, gym and steam room which were not too bad. Very central location. There... More

Globus tours booked us a two night stay as part of their U.K. tour package. The room we had was spacious, clean and quiet. Extra security is in place. If you don't have a room access card you can't use the elevators. The location is the best that one could attain ---right in the center of all the attractions and... More
