I was a little disappointed with the room - furniture was chipped and scratched and just felt unloved. Swimming pool area was also in need of a revamp - felt dark and dingy. Not four star. I had booked treatment for myself and my daughter. It was average. We made the most of the weekend, but I expected a more... More

We liked the look and location as we saw online and were not disappointed. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel. You won’t find a nicer hotel on the royal mile. Beautiful historic building with real character. We booked for two nights but extended for an extra night. Nice clean room. Very modern though in contrast to the building itself.... More

Great place to stay! Clean and well appointed rooms at a fabulous location for exploring Edinburgh. Also a great, friendly and helpful staff. Many restaurants in the area. Located in center of the main tourist area in the city, 10 minutes to the castle in one direction and 10 minutes to Arthurs Seat in the other direction.

From the moment we checked in, the staff was fantastic! In total, we had a group of 20 staying at the hotel, and the common theme was that the staff exceeded expectations. Rooms were upgraded when available and anytime we had questions or concerns the staff was quick to help. You cannot beat the location.

This hotel is in a fabulous location on the Royal Mile - right within walking distance of all the main tourist attractions. We were able to comfortably walk to Edinburgh Castle, The Dungeons, Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament from here. There is a convinient shuttle bus to the airport located within minutes of the hotel. The staff are exceptionally... More

Very nice hotel located next to Royal Miles leading to the Castel of Edimburgh. Excellent staff, very welcoming available and helpful. Nice lounge and bar. Nice bedrooms and extra large & comfortable beds. Very good room service and afternoon tea. Insonorisation of the bedrooms could be improved.

Brilliant breakfast place called Edinburgh Larder just round the corner. Plus great bar and restaurant Monteiths brilliant cocktail menu and proper mixologists! Only thing that lets this hotel down is... More

We stayed for a few days while exploring Edinburgh. It is in an absolutely great location for tourists, being situated right on the Royal Mile! A short walk in either direction will bring you to the majority of the tourist attractions and only about 20-30 minutes walk to Holyrood Park. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. That...

I have just returned from a long weekend in Edinburgh staying at the Radisson for the first time. I could not fault the hotel at all. We were upgraded to a Business Class room because it was my birthday, the room was lovely with views over the royal mile. Very good sound proofing too! The staff were fantastic and very... More
