My wife and I have just returned from a great stay. The location for seeing all the attractions of Edinburgh was excellent. We arrived at 10am and asked to leave our luggage as couldn't check in until 2pm but our room was ready which was a bonus. All the staff in the hotel were excellent and very friendly & helpful...

Stayed for two nights at the end of our vacation. The hotel is just a few blocks from the Edinburgh castle in the middle of the shopping district. The hotel looks newly renovated and very upscale. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a better room which was very clean. The first night the pillows were too soft, they have a... More

Chose the hotel due to other reviews on this site. Not disappointed! Very clean, modern and bright room. Nice wall mounted flat screen tv. Would have been nice to have a walk-in shower, but not essential! Bathroom and shower was good anyway! Staff very friendly and efficient. Excellent breakfast with plenty of the usual to chose from. Would use again!

This hotel is located on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. It's a great location for tourists to base themselves to experience all the best of what Edinburgh has to offer.

After an 11 hour journey up to Scotland for meetings on the way this was perfect. Easy parking, nothing too much of a problem for the staff on reception and beautiful comfortable rooms. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and hope to do so in future.

Room fresh, modern and very elegant. Perfect location especially if only in town 24 hours. Great pubs across the street and Edinburgh Castle at one end of the Royal Mike and funky Parliament bodhisattva and Palace at Holyrood at the other end.

Not the best Radisson I have ever stayed in with the room being slightly tired in places with a faulty blind and stained grout etc. but these few things aside it is very well located on the mile and the breakfast was top notch! It does have a Rather expensive bar but it is well located with music and sports... More

First impressions can tell a story. Unfortunately the gentleman at reception, although helpful and went through the normal formalities he was very unkempt, in need of a shave and dirty suit jacket. I stayed in room 625, the room was very basic, tired looking and in desperate need of a complete refurbishment. The carpet very dated n stained, the furniture... 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.
