Can't get any better full service hotel on the royal mile. The staff is pleasant and attentive. The street can be noisy round the clock and our AC didn't work so I never felt quite comfortable--I needed more air. But the beds and amenities are lovely.

This hotel is right in the middle of the Royal Mile so it's easy to get to all the sites simply by walking. The hotel has an excellent breakfast! The rooms are modern and clean. The staff are friendly and very helpful. You won't go wrong if you choose this place!

Stayed here for one night. The rooms are nice and adequate. The location in the Old Town is great, close to the Castle and only a short walk to Princess Street in the New Town. One of the few hotels that has on site parking which is fantastic. Directions from the car park to the reception lobby are not very... More

The staff at Blu really made our stay enjoyable. They were friendly and always willing to help. The location of the hotel is fabulous! It is within walking distance of so many historical places! The hotel bar was nice as well, they were open later than many of the pubs.

My partner and I had tickets for the Runrig concert at the Castle and decided to treat ourselves to an overnight stay at the Radisson. Excellent decision. We had travelled in the clothes we were going to wear to the concert - outdoors rock concert gear was not exactly posh frocks, but that did not alter in any way the... More

Stayed there for two nights. One of the best location in City Centre, everything is near from fortress to train station. One of the best breakfast that I had in any hotel. Very clean and spacious rooms with fantastic view. Hearty recommended.

Very well located hotel with professional front office staff. The rooms were a good size and the bed comfortable. We had in-room dining one night and shortly after we ordered it the fire alarm went off. The evacuation was very smooth - turned out to be a false alarm in the end however when we got back to the room... More

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.
