Booked the trip for the christmas markets / birthday weekend. Beautiful hotel, lovely staff and service and ideally located. Breakfast had a good selection and the bar had some lovely cocktails. Would stay again.

Striking modern hotel in the Old Town
Reviewed 2 days ago

Stayed here based on the recommendation of people I work with. Did not disappoint.
Doesn’t look anything special from the outside as it’s a much newer building than the old buildings that surround it. However, it absolutely has the wow factor from the moment you walk through the door.
Very quirky, modern styling, lots of interesting pieces to look at in the large reception area.
Our room was one of the best rooms I’ve stayed in. The best part was definitely walking in to the small entrance way, thinking the room was quite small and turning to see the living area, bedroom and bathroom. Floor to ceiling windows with fantastic views over Edinburgh. The fixtures and fittings are fantastic, quite fancy trying to find some for my own house.
Beds are huge and so comfortable. Down pillows which I absolutely love and a lot of places have feather or micro fibre.
Lovely double shower.
We had a fantastic time in the bar, later on in the evening, wish we’d gone in earlier. The DJ was great, loved every tune!
I’ll definitely recommend and would absolutely stay here again, well worth the little bit extra for a fantastic hotel in a brilliant location. Looking for another Radisson Collection hotel to try!

Also the receptionist who handled our checkout was so lovely and cheerful. Just rounded off the whole experience. Think her name was Eilidh.

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in room 236. I requested a quiet room with a view, this room was/had neither! This room is so dark the lighting is terrible. I really don’t know what they were thinking when decorating this room, we passed other rooms being cleaned which were all light and airy. My husband had to use the torch on his phone to use the coffee machine in the corner of the room it was so dark.
On the plus side the staff are lovely and helpful the rooms are spotless. Location is great as well.
I would stop here again but not in this room apparently there are only two rooms in this hotel like this. Very strange room.

Lovely modern hotel and great staff

Stayed overnight with a party of 12. Lovely welcome all the staff and the room was great. Modern, clean and warm. We had a few drinks in the busy bar area before going upstairs to our xmas party venue. Tables were set out nicely and we were greeted with a glass of prosecco which was topped up regularly throughout the night. All three courses of our food were delicious. Followed by mince pies. Staff waiting on the tables were excellent and vert attentive. The breakfast was lovely too and check out was quick and easy. Well worth a stay and is great for hitting the shops

Great location but overpriced.

Painting a rather ordinary room in strong colors and making it "Collection" or "Design" hotel - does not introduce any luxury. The rooms are still small – the place to store the clothes is still limited, and a five-star hotel that had the room made 8 pm is rare…
Breakfast was also quite ordinary – and one should not have to wait for minutes getting a table. Nice staff everywhere, but some way disorganized. This was not quite usual Radisson standard.
But – location – great
