hard to knock this hotel - the furnishings are modern and top notch. Very clean and great staff. Breakfast was busy but fine. After dinner drinks and dessert in the bar were lovely. Can't beat the location and the car park was more convenient than at the Carlton. Wifi was great.

Went for Afternoon tea on Saturday 27th June at the Radisson Blu, Edinburgh, with my mother and what a joy it was. The service from Blair and Martina was 5 star and the food was wonderful and plentiful. A beautifull experience which we can't wait to repeat.

First off, the staff were lovely. However, our "double room" was actually a room with two individual single beds pushed together. Personally, this would not bother me however the reputation and good feedback this hotel has, as well as the price we paid to stay one night, resulted in me being very dissatisfied with my stay.

I had never stayed at a Radisson Blu before so had no prior experience. We were therefore pleasantly surprised. We had the best view on one of the 5th floor suites. Though the windows are small, this was compensated by the size of the rooms. I was traveling with my daughter so we needed a bit of space and did... More

I stayed for 3 nights while on business in Edinburgh and found the hotel to be extremely clean and modern with good facilities. Unfortunately the spa and swimming pool area were being refurbished so couldn't use these which was a shame but look forward to next time. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and efficient service from the... More

The weekend rates were just a bit steep and we shipped out to the more functional premier inn. This is a great hotel in a real nice location. The staff make you feel right at home too. We will be back again!!

I booked the turret suite for five nights where I stayed with my family (2A+2C). The suite is huge with a table for dinner just in the tower that you can see from all the photos of the hotel. We stayed at the fifth floor from where you can enjoy a beautiful view on the clock of the bell tower... More

A very busy hotel on the Royal Mile. I was on a tour with 40 others the hotel staff although very busy with many other guests were efficient, courteous and very friendly. The hotel had prior notice of special dietary requirements and came up trumps without a problem. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the railway station, Jenners... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
