Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is centrally located right on the Royal Mile! It blends in with the old-town stone outside, but inside it is very modern and chic. We loved our room! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything about this hotel is Great, but I cannot stress enough that the location is absolutely perfect!!!! You will love it here!

We were visiting this time to celebrate our three year Anniversary. We got a great deal and the hotel brought us...

Stayed here for one night on work visit; got lovely well furnished upgraded room with lovely view of sea and Arthur's seat (see photo).

Once again, a really lovely stay. The rooms have been very tastefully refurbished since my last visit. Breakfast was very good and the breakfast room was quieter than on my previous visits which gave it a nice atmosphere. As usual, a special mention to the staff who are, without exception, friendly, helpful and extremely professional. Special mention and thank you...

Fabulous executive room upgrade at very reasonable cost. Very good reception staff - friendly and extremely helpful. All staff friendly and well trained. Spotlessly clean throughout and very useful secure car park on site. An altogether excellent experience. We have also stayed in the Radisson Blu in Chicago and Manchester. Very satisfied with the brand. Thank your Radisson.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood 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-flavoured 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.
