Best location in the city. On the Royal Mile. Also close to the train and bus stations. Rooms are very modern. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Good bar and excellent breakfast with special order eggs and other dishes.

Room beautiful although one criticism- no mattress protectors, the rest perfect. Also used the lovely spa, shame not many people seem to use although did mean we... More

We've visited Edinburgh several times over the years, but we've always stayed at the Balmoral or other hotels not directly on the Royal Mile. None of the Royal Mile hotels ever looked that appealing to is. But when we heard that Radisson Blu had taken over the operation of the cool building at the corner of the Royal Mile and... More

We stayed in the Junior Suite, replete with VERY large separate wing with full dining room in the turret, massive lounge room, beautiful bedroom. Unlimited free minibar as part of the suite. Lovely bathroom provisions, but pretty poor, some would say "B Grade" bath/shower. Cramped, awkward, not befitting a suite of this ilk. But I suspect they know that. The... More

I stayed in this hotel for the first time on an overnight trip to Edinburgh, the usual hotel that I stayed in was asking for £600 for the night so I stayed 5 minutes away for a third of the price. A good service team, efficient on arrival and departure, a taxi line with taxi's waiting outside is very convenient.... More

A wonderful stay at this gorgeous hotel on the Royal Mile . Really can't wait to return Only negative which doesn't just reflect this hotel but charging £17.95 per person on top of high room rates is ridiculous and I think hotels should serve breakfast inclusive of the room rates

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.
