We have just returned from our second visit to this wonderful hotel. From the moment you step into this establishment, you are given a warm welcome. Every member of staff we encountered deserves recognition. The receptionist gave us a warm welcome and went straight to concierge when we enquired about trips to Loch Lomond. The concierge was also very attentive,... More

The staff are very courteous and polite, the evening meal very nice indeed but the room was a huge disappointment, from the hair in the bath, to the poor lighting , noise from the bar opposite and below,noisy aircon and the awful cooked breakfast ( bacon swimming and grease and the sausages??) I was pleased to leave. Stayed on a... More

The hotels, streets and pubs were all busy but the Radisson hotel managed to cope with the increase very well. Our room was excellent, the bed was very comfortable, the... More

Welcoming staff, arrived at the Hotel early. Sanila gave us a city map and explained where to go highlighting places of interest. She took our luggage and arranged for it to go up to our room once ready. Very friendly and efficient young lady! Thank you for the bottle of wine left in our room for my partners birthday.

Review from Dec 2014: This is the second year we have stayed at this particular hotel due to the location! For us, being based on the Royal Mile is the most perfect location in Edinburgh. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, train station, Edinburgh Castle and so on! This year was particularly special because my other half proposed; upon arrival the... More

My husband and I had been wanting to visit this hotel for a while. On arrival (at 3pm) we were told our room wasn't ready but would be in about 20-30 mins and we could have a complimentary drink at the bar. We went back to reception after 30 mins and our room still wasn't ready. We decided to go... More
