We stayed here in a party of 18 last weekend for a "special" birthday celebration. Clearly the hotel is an a great spot, with the buzz of Edinburgh outside the front door. Our room was at the back so quiet but 1 of our party had some noise on one of the nights. I liked the look and feel of... More

My family spent three nights at the Radisson Blu Hotel and are very glad we did. It has a great location in the center of Edinburgh, and an attractive appearance that fits in well with the old city. From check in to check out, everybody we met at the hotel was very nice and helpful. I should give a special... More

The rooms are clean but small, and the elevators are roughly the size of two telephone booths. On close inspection, the furniture has its share of scuffs and scratches. Decor is limited, although they do have a scattering of excellent black and white photographs. So, why the four stars? First and foremost, because of the staff: knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and... More

We loved the location, we could walk out the door and cabs were waiting. The special sights were an easy walk away. We loved lunch at the Castle Terrace Restaurant. We loved our family room, huge and comfy with 4 beds.

We stayed at the radisson a few nights and had a pretty nice stay. The location is perfect because it's really central and you can walk to wherever you need to go in Edinburgh. We started out with the standard room which was okay but I would give that a 3 star. The hotel tried to make us pay more... More

We stayed here for our last night in the UK. We arrived late morning to drop off our bags, and our room was already available, which was fantastic. We had a triple room with a double and two single beds, and a lovely view (we could see Salisbury Crags and Calton Hill). The room was comfortable, but WiFi was patchy,... More

The hotel is in an excellent location on the Royal Mile for access to all the Edinburgh sights. Rooms are spacious with both shower and bath en-suite. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the hotel facilities could not be faulted. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Just returned from a short break here with my partner and we had an amazing time here. Staff were friendly and helpful, with the kind lady who first greeted us at reception providing us with information about local places of interest and circling these on a map for us.

The rooms were nice and modern. The beds were comfortable. The wifi was iffy in our room. The breakfast that was included every morning was amazing. There was a large spread with a lot of choices. Edinburgh Castle was aprox. a half mile walk from the hotel. We also walked downtown to shop and to the train station. Edinburgh castle... More

Dear DebFackler, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us here at the hotel. I am delighted you had such a great time in Edinburgh and the hotel. There are indeed a number of alternatives to Edinburgh Castle in and around Edinburgh, apart from Stirling we would also recommend Linlithgow Palace or the remains of Craigmillar Castle. Thank you...
