Travelers’ tips to help you choose the right room

  • Be very careful with the tub height. Do not expect a wow experience. Keep your expectations low and you won’t be disappointed. (LauraWinVA)
  • If you plan on trying places nearby for breakfast - book well in advance - recommend the Edinburgh larder which is next to the hotel (TheHunterClan)
  • Many, many restaurants of all types within walking distance. Also, breakfast at the hotel was very nice! (SugarSherri)
  • We had room 301 which had a fantastic view, but every room occupied by our party of 10 was great. (sim0neamanda)
  • upper floor to get a good view across the city (John O)

  • I went to the Sleeping Beauty Spa with a group of friends for a celebratory hen day. We had a great time using the pool and sauna (the steam room was out of use) and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and patient with such a big group! Special thanks to Meredith who provided my treatment, it’s rare to find a therapist with a sense of humour and she made my experience even better, thank you!

  • Situated near the bottom of the royal mile, it’s the perfect hotel if you’re driving and you want to be city central. Parking was just £15 a day for guests, the railway is a 5 min walk if we wanted to venture out without the car, but you are in walking distance for most of Edinburgh. We had the superior room which was very good. Secondary glazing did not stop all the street noise, but they do supply earplugs which we did use. The bathroom Is very small- the shower is awesome - great for long hair!!! Good pressure and easy to use. Very easy to use. Bad layout though as the glass shield door doesn’t really stop the water getting on the floor. There are free standing toiletries which are all lovely - but there are three bottles attached to the wall and they are not easy to use. Badly placed as when you finally get the nozzle to work it shoots out at a rate of Knott’s in the opposite direction to which you’re prepared for. Nice big cozy towels though. Rooms are lovely and clean, good room service. Comfortable bed although the beds are two singles put together with a dip in the middle. Free bottles of water each day which were very handy with water and fruit available in the lobby. The stairs are hard to find and not labelled which is not good I think. Swimming pool is quite small, but it’s a nice spa area with places to sit. We had breakfast one morning which was very nice - but it’s expensive compared to what you can get down the road. Although the automatic pancake maker is worth checking out.

  • "A review dedicated to Julia."

  • We visited Edinburgh for the weekend, as a group of friends. We had been walking all day and decided we would like a drink before dinner . We stopped at the Radisson. It as very busy and the bar was understaffed. We found seats and went to the bar. The bar staff were wonderful , even though really busy made us feel like we were their only guests. I must give a special mention to Julia . She made me what I can only describe as the best caramel iced coffee I have ever or likely to ever tasted in my life. Her espresso Martini was like a piece of art and tasted divine . Julia was so lovely efficient and I feel she deserved her own review. I will come back to Edinburgh just to see Julia and enjoy the best iced coffee ever.

  • "Pleasant Surprise on The Royal Mile"

  • When making a trip across the pond one may arrive very tired and ready for a rest at the hotel. No hassles please! We certainly found no hassles at The Radisson Blu Edinburgh! Paul and Helen greeted us with cheerful attitudes and a willingness to make our hotel experience a seamless one. We are very grateful for them! They helped us many times during our stay. After easily checking in we were off to our room expecting to see a charming but tight space with none of the amenities we are used to in American rooms. We were very surprised! We found a beautifully designed contemporary room with good lighting, many plug-ins for our phones and watches, a wonderfully comfy bed with the best pillows, a beautiful view of Edinburgh, plenty of comfortable seating, and a clean bathroom with ample space for our toiletries. A very pleasant room! We enjoy walking and exploring so the location was perfect for us - right in the middle of The Royal Mile! We plan to visit our family in Edinburgh twice more this year and we’ll plan to stay at the Radisson Blu!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our family 2 night stay. Staff were very helpful from the time we arrived, helping us park when our roof box exceeded the car park height. Room exceeded our expectations, booked a family room and got interconnecting rooms. Food was delicious. Great location. Can't find any fault. Will book with radisson again. Thank you.
