Missing a trick
Reviewed 9 hours ago

I have stayed at this hotel before but it was then the Missoni and exuded a luxurious feel, now it just seems to have lost that extra special edge, For instance we had been promised a G & T on arrival when booking, but on arrival were told they no longer offered it but we could have a glass of water in reception!!! The reception area is very bland and not very comfortable and the bar area uninviting and there is no Concierge. On the positive side the rooms have not changed and are very comfortable and quiet for such a central location with mine overlooking the Royal Mile . The breakfast was also very good with plenty of choice of high quality produce

Great Location, Few Issues...Resolved with Good Management Team

Booked 3 rooms for the family. First time staying in a Radisson chain, almost my last time due to room and staff issues, however service recovery by a very helpful management personnel. One of the rooms for 2 days offered poor ventilation despite assessment by the hotel maintenance division. It was uncomfortably warm and the windows do not open. The other issue was with breakfast, one of the rooms was inadvertently not listed for the breakfast buffet. I attempted to resolve this issue with the breakfast staff supervisor to no avail. We were due for a tour and could not wait much longer. I had to resolve the issue with the front desk and physically hail a server to serve us. The supervisor was too busy clearing tables and not managing issues like this. I spoke with Heather Collins at Guest Relations, she was exceptional. She listened, apologized and acted immediately. An example of ideal customer service. She removed my family members from the poorly ventilated room and place them in another room which also had a better view. Thank you Heather. I also would like to thank Axel, a young receptionist. He was most helpful and very pleasant when queried about local sites. Overall a good stay, exemplary Guest Relations and superior location!

Nice hotel

We would just like to thank thembi on reception ( apologies if the name is wrong) she went out of her way to deal with something we asked for nothing was a problem and she was very helpful. We also were given an complimentary upgrade to to a suite. She made us feel special ( it helped to stop my wife complaining at me for a few moments :)

The rooms are perfect and wow what a view.

The only gripe I would say is breakfast, breads felt quite stale, the oven cooked bacon was also not the greatest and the potato scone was bit cooked, possible just done under the grill and warmed?

Anyways thanks for a great stay!

This was so wonderful!

We moved here from another hotel that we were dissatisfied with and we couldn't have been more happy with that decision. Beautiful room, well appointed, excellent food and service, and knowledgeable staff. Never settle for mediocre experiences in Edinburgh...reserve here and be happy. Excellent food. Comfortable beds. Just perfect!

Modern clean and comfortable.

This modern hotel is superbly situated for all the points of interest around the Royal Mile, and there are many restaurants & pubs in the area to choose from.
The hotel is more suited to the corporate sector than for tourists and families. There are no amenities as such, just a rather dull bar area and a restaurant that is equally uninspiring. But with so much choice around it is not a problem. The room was spacious clean and comfortable. Staff were excellent on all levels.
