My best friend and I travelled to Edinburgh for our mutual birthday treat. We needed to be close to the centre of things and this hotel was ideal. A short walk from the railway station and in the heart of the action. We found all hotels in Edinburgh near to the centre to be quite expensive and so when we booked we didn't add breakfast, it was an expensive option and we felt we could get breakfast cheaper locally (we did).
When we arrived we were checked in by a very pleasant member of staff and while that was happening my friend went to the concierge to ask about tickets at the theatre for that evening. the tickets were unavailable when we tried to book for ourselves. Within minutes the tickets, very reasonably priced, were booked. The very helpful Jamie then offered advice about our stay and what we might like to do, he deserves a special mention.
Our room was very comfortable, clean and a decent size.
When we returned each evening to the hotel we had a nightcap at the hotel bar Itchicoo. The staff waiting on tables were so pleasant and service was swift, very efficient. The drinks we felt were very reasonable for such a good quality central hotel. Usually you end up paying very high prices, not so here, drinks fell in line with local bars and restaurants.
The conceirge service was excellent over the weekend advising us of bus times and route to take us to the Royal Yacht (highly recommended), a good Thai restaurant and other little details of our stay. An excellent service from all of the pleasant guys who manned the desks, I am sorry but names have escaped me!
All in all a perfect weekend, the weather was beautiful and I left feeling that if the staff at the Radisson Blu could Arrange the weather for their guests they would. Nothing was a problem, everything was done with a smile. I would go back again and highly recommend to friends and fellow travellers.
