I stayed here for 2 nights when I was in Edinburgh for work. The hotel was lovely but the location was better! It's in a great spot to explore the city (I just wish I'd had more time to do this!). Check in was friendly and polite, the room was well appointed and a good size, with a clean modern... More

The location is perfect: on the middle of the Royal Mile, and minutes on foot from Princes Street or the Castle. First impressions were poor as there was a long wait at reception and only two desks were occupied. However, the lady who checked us in was professional, welcoming and efficient. Our room on the fifth floor had charming views... More

i like to be honest and i dont like to give a bad review - the only bad thing was that the room was a twin when i asked for a double (my wife was overjoyed!!) and that the carpets needed a major clean - however staff were superb and the breakfast was magnificent and the location was 10 out... More

We only had one night in Edinburgh and wanted to be near the attractions on Old Town. This hotel was situated perfectly to the train and the sights. The room was very nice, clean and the staff were wonderful. It did not include breakfast but that was ok. I would definately use this hotel again.

Very Good hotel right in the centre of Edinburgh. Caught train up from London and was able to walk from Edinburgh station to the hotel with ease. We stayed in the turret Suite on the second floor. The room had horrible carpet it was very dirty and pulled up in some area's. Not expected of a Suite. But still the... More

Great location allowed us to tour Edinburgh Castle on the day of our arrival on a 2:30 pm train. Friendly and helpful staff, attentive to all our needs. Updated sparkling clean room and bath. Delicious breakfast a value. Walking distance to train and air port transportation saved cab fares. Central location allowed us to stop at the hotel throughout the... More

The service was friendly and attentive, room was HUGE (we had a "family room) and elegant with great views, dinner at the restaurant was delicious and the menu was extensive, breakfast was great with a wide variety of choices (though breakfast buffets just aren't for me- fighting strangers to get to some jam first thing in the morning is not...

This was my second stay at the Radisson Blu Edinburgh and I highly recommend it, especially for anyone travelling with older children. We had a very large family room (larger than our two previous hotels in London) and included a large queen bed and two singles. Plenty of room for two adults and two teenagers. Our room was on a...

We stayed in the 2nd floor room that included a part of the turret. The room was massive, sitting room, dining table, separate bedroom and bathroom. The carpet was really dirty and needed to be tightened as it had 2 very large bulges running down the sitting room making it a trip hazard. The furniture was tired and bordering on... More
