we booked a twin room and were give a double room, we waiting almost 4 hours for the house porter to change the beds. The room was on the side of a street near a night club and we were awoken at 3am to extremely loud customers leaving the club for 20-30 minutes and returning to sleep was difficult. On request the receptionist change our room to the quiet side of the Hotel. Thereafter we enjoyed our stay.

Good location and friendly staff. Room needs to be cleaned better (there was a pair of someone's broken glasses right under the edge of the bed), and the quality of the sheets is quite bad, especially compared to other Radisson Blu hotels.

Both of our rooms had small moths. Carpets need replacement. Not up to the standard of prior Expedia VIP hotels I have stayed at. Overall disappointing.

The hotel is in a perfect location with a short walk up to Edinburgh Castle. As we drove into Edinburgh it was important for us to find a hotel with parking and the large multi level secure attached parking lot was perfect. Although the parking was an additional 15 pounds it was worth it for the convenience of staying on the Royal Mile. The rooms are beautiful, modern and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing with such a huge selection to choose from. The hagas was the best we’ve ever had! The 12 noon check out was ideal as it gave us more time in the morning to do a bit more shopping. Highly recommend!
