Radisson Blu Edinburgh

Posted May 25, 2017
Best part of our trip to the UK. Hotel is in good spot on the old area on Royal mile. Lots of shopping and restaurants steps from the front door. Our room was large, spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful, quick on service and gracious. Really enjoyed our time in Edinburgh.

The breakfast section was like nothing that I have ever encountered before. Everything about this hotel is first class.

Excellent hotel on all counts!

Posted May 15, 2017
Pros: The location can't be beat.
Location: Close to everything on the Royal Mile - half way between the Castle and Holyrood palace.
Edinburgh was the trip of a lifetime for my daughter and myself, and the Radisson Blu Edinburgh was simply perfect!

Avoid this hotel at present as the lift is out

Posted May 12, 2017
Very average hotel, lack lustre staff, small rooms (We were in a business class room), Pretty poor breakfast (apart from the omelette which was good). Not the usual stand you expect from a Radisson Blu. Plus the lift in the garage is out of order at he moment so you have to drag your luggage up 4 floors yourself! That said it is a convenient location on the Royal mile between the castle and Holyrood Palace and the beds were comfortable. If you do stay here be sure to get the reception to validate your parking ticket. We stayed for 2 nights and when we out our ticket in the machine it said we owed £48. Luckily I remembered it was meant to be £12.50 a night so we went back to reception and they validated it so we only paid £25. There was no apology for this not being mentioned when we checked out. The hotel was conveniently located but next time I would stay somewhere else as this hotel is not good value for money.

Hi Nicola, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback following your stay. I am sorry to see that you were disappointed with our car park lifts being out of action. It is currently having a full makeover in order for it to be larger and quicker. I have passed all of your feedback along to the relevant departments for them to look into with their teams. We hope to welcome you back to Edinburgh again in the future. Many thanks, Devon Guest Relations

Conveniently located on the Royal Mile

Posted Apr 22, 2017
Pros: location
Cons: allow early check-in
Location: It is located right on the Royal Mile halfway between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood. Also close to the pick up area for all tour companies
The hotel is in a great location for seeing all the sights and close to the pick-up points for all the Highland tour companies. Down side: We arrived at the hotel around 1pm after travelling all night and we had to wait until 3pm to check-in. We were hoping for a quick nap before we started touring but had to sit in the lobby and wait.

Excellent Hotel for Many Reasons

Posted Apr 9, 2017
Pros: Location to all main attractions.
Cons: Hotter water in the shower. It was warm water, but not HOT!
Location: There is an absolutely DELICIOUS burger and shake joint across the street. It is called Bryon and is a must do for a filling dinner!
This was my first time in Edinburgh and I am glad I chose this hotel to stay at. The hotel is a beautiful building with friendly staff, clean lobby, quiet rooms and perfect location. I traveled with my Dad so we had two twin beds in our room. Both beds were comfortable and the curtains kept the light out in the morning. In the mornings we ate at the breakfast buffet, which had tons of variety including hot and cold foods! The servers made sure you were happy with your meal and kept the coffee flowing. As we headed out for the day the hotel is located ten minutes to Edinburgh Castle and ten minutes the opposite was the Holyrood Palace. It is also a ten minute walk to the main bus area for Hop On/Hop Off tours and city buses. If I were to return to Edinburgh I would stay here again.
