The location of this hotel is really what made our stay so enjoyable. Location and hotel - busy, bustling and exciting with all major tourist attractions in walking distance. The room was very pleasant with a big comfortable bed and modern decor. We even got a bottle of champagne and a lovely note from the hotel staff as our stay...

Stayed here for New Years, hotel is nice no issues the room was very large. We stayed in the superior room. good spot to explore the city. The only issue I had was the taxi que directly outside the hotel. Lots of bums and drunks hanging around at night.

I stayed here on business for a single night and was impressed with all the aspects of the hotel that I encountered. The staff were all professional, polite and well presented and the room was clean and modern. It was also well lit which is a rarity in these days of dreary `save the planet` light bulbs. The bed deserves...

Arriving by rail this place is simple to get to. Exit station onto Market Street side and turn left. Keep going then turn right up a back street called Carrubbers Close. This brings you out opposite the front doors of the hotel. Check in was a breeze. What I particularly liked was that rather than one long desk they have...

This hotel is slick, new and well appointed, right in the middle of the action. The staff is attentive, the rooms spacious and clean, and everything in the spa was amazing. (I especially enjoyed the steam room after a really long day of travel). Walking distance from the new prams, you can't beat the value.

The Radisson Blu is very centrally located and the staff are friendly. Unfortunately, my room was quite dark, as my window looked out onto a wall, so I was a bit disappointed with the lack of sun, but otherwise the room was fine. I left my camera in the safe, and they sent it to me right away by post...

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.
