My wife and I had an overnight stay at this hotel which is right on the royal mile. Our room was beautiful, very spacious and well appointed, and looked directly down on to the royal mile. The room was very comfortable and the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The underground car park which is attached to the hotel... More

Lovely hotel in great location. Staff very friendly. Only complaint would be mini bar prices - €4.60 for a small bottle of water is excessive! Tip: to you fellow Brits out there, familiarise yourself with the sauna rules and don't get caught out like I did ;-)

Great location for all the good stuff in this wonderful city. The (free) breakfast room a little on the tacky side, but the other amenities looked nice (we didn't use the bar or restaurant preferring to patronize every seedy pub we could find!) I asked at the desk for the location of a mail box and they offered to take... More

Stayed at the Radisson Blu on the 24th July 2014. As I'm a Club Carlson member I was upgraded to a business class room, bottle of bubbly was in the room with chocolates as it was my wedding anniversary, VERY nice touch from the hotel manager. Excellent location, staff were really warm and friendly, nothing to fault about this hotel.

We are on our second night here and it's brilliant... Customer service cannot be faulted... We booked bed and breakfast in a standard room but we were upgraded to business class with a view over the Royal Mile without asking and received birthday cupcakes... Hotel room can't be faulted... Bed exceptionally comfy, pillow menu, nespresso machine, free paper and mineral... More

Very good quality hotel in an excellent position in the middle of Royal Mile. You can walk to all the attractions with ease and shopping starts right outside the door. Access to the parking can be tricky due one way streets.

Good location, pleasant helpful staff, poor quality rooms. The hotel needs to be refurbished. The common areas are in need of an upgrade. Breakfast and general facilities of the hotel were completely satisfactory. Cost probably determined by the location but generally disappointing. Staff did respond to our disappointment by offering a free room upgrade.

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
