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.

Hello Tania E, There are a number of easy transportation methods to Edinburgh City Centre; Airport – City Tram: £5.50 per person / per journey, Travel time: 30mins Airlink 100 – Bus: £4.50 per person / £7.50 return, Travel time: 25mins Taxi, £20 – £25, Travel time: 20 – 30 mins (depending on traffic) I would personally recommend the Airlink 100 bus to / from Waverly Bridge as the buses are very frequent and its the closest public transport to the hotel, 5 mins walk via Cockburn St. We look forward to welcoming you to Radisson Blu soon!

"I would avoid rooms front-side, certainly during the weekend. Pub life is vibrant in this area."
"We stayed in a Suite which was lovely and quiet."
"We paid a supplement for a view of Salisbury Crags. Some rooms seem to look at an internal space."
"Ask for a room that is away from the adjoining nightclubs"
"Room on the first floor right hand side are over looking a night club"
