  • Highly recommended to stay at this hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful, standard room was very nice, the shower gel dispenser is a bit awkward and seems to get empty quickly, breakfast is great, maybe could add cold smoked Scottish salmon as well to the buffet, loved the pankcake maker, great idea to offer small water bottles to members but maybe it would be more environmentally friendly to have a water dispenser as well or even instead. The location is excellent. Spa area was nice and relaxing after along day of adventuring around Edinburgh.

  • Our Air BnB didn't work out and at the very last minute, we called Radisson. They were so helpful and accommodating. The facility is beautiful and the staff was great. They helped us sign up to be members so we could have the best rate. They saved what could have been a difficult couple of days in Edinburg.

  • Radisson Blu is perfectly located for Central Edinburgh at the top of the royal mile only 700 yards away from Edinburgh castle. The room was ideal and the bed super comfy you can also stream your own tv programs to there tele via chrome.. unfortunately we were unable to do this as it wasn't working at the time. but you don't come to Edinburgh to watch tv the so much going on with the history of the city and free museums at the bottom of the royal mile all the sight seeing tours and restaurants. speaking of which the restaurant food within the hotel is amazing easily 4 star and above. breakfast was also lovely and the staff just couldn't do enough for you excellent all round experience thank you

  • Excellent quality of hotel in a central location for the Old Town. Easy walking distance to Waverly Station and main tourist attractions this hotel has a local flavour of the best type. Lots of top quality restaurants and bars nearby but thanks to the secondary glazing we slept soundly. All comforts were there with the usual Radisson Toiletries and care kits. The bed was softer than I normally sleep in but was actually incredibly comfortable and I slept well. The view of the city from 519 is beautiful..
