Triple glazing made the room beautifully quiet whilst the city was packed with people and very noisy during festival. Extremely comfortable bed, though the tiny ledge into the bathroom meant stubbed toes! Nice staff and I enjoyed a swim. Good breakfast, quick service, all round good experience as this hotel close to castle and the station.

We called in to escape the hustle, bustle and noise on the Royal Mile. Wow what place quite tranquil, somewhere to just sit and relax with and drink. Watch the free popcorn tho its peppery! The staff were very helpful and attentive too

We arrived at 7:30pm. Check in was to be at 3pm, we had arranged for late check in. Unfortunately, our room was still not ready. All that needed to be done was to remake the bed, using twin instead of king bedding. We went to wait in the lobby. 30 minutes latter we were told they were going to give... More

We only had one night at the Radisson and it was the best hotel on the trip. Great facilities, very centrally located and friendly staff, only wish we had more... More

Stayed here on our first visit to the Fringe. It was a perfect central location for the many venues, the ticket collection office and the heart of the city. We could see the castle from our room on the 5th floor and could watch the fireworks each evening from the window. The room was very comfortable with plenty of space... More

We stayed with a tour group. This was the best hotel we stayed at during our trip. Others were nice but this hotel was the best. Little extras that made for a very comfortable stay. The bed was really comfortable. Highly recommend. ( all the people we were travelling with agreed it was our best stay)

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.
