Our enviable city center location lies just 13 kilometers from Edinburgh Airport (EDI) which is easily accessible thanks to regular Airlink buses and Edinburgh's tram system. A taxi is likely to take 20–25 minutes depending on traffic. Our helpful staff can of course arrange taxi travel from the airport, bus, or train station.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh City Centre is within easy walking distance of the city's central railway hub, Waverley Station. Waverley is the main route into the city, and is serviced by trains from England's west coast line coming up from Birmingham and the Lake District, as well as England's east coast line that originates in London and calls at York and Newcastle. Direct trains from London's Kings Cross now reach Edinburgh Waverley in less than four and a half hours. There are regular services coming south from Inverness and Aberdeen, plus a shuttle service that runs to and from Glasgow, Scotland's other major city, every 15 minutes. Direct trains from Edinburgh Waverley to the center of Glasgow take just 50 minutes.
Edinburgh is a beautiful, yet compact city, which means the vast majority of its leading visitor attractions are in walking distance from our central location in the old town. We are situated on the Royal Mile. You will find Edinburgh Castle at one end, the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace at the other. Our hotel sits proudly in the center.
You can park at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh City Centre for a fee of £12.50 per night. We have car parking space for 131 vehicles, available on a first come, first served basis.
When approaching the hotel southwards from Princes Street, turn left from North Bridge and continue to the first set of traffic lights. Turn right down St Mary's Street, then take your first right at the traffic lights onto the Cowgate, and then right up Blackfriars Street.
