A warm Scottish welcome awaits you at this grand hotel, in a buzzing central location that’s hard to beat. Step out the door of the Radisson Blu Edinburgh and you’re right in the heart of the old city, on the famous Royal Mile, within a Highland Fling’s distance of all the main attractions.
Back at your base, behind a 16th-century-style facade and sturdy stone walls, you’ll find a calm lobby with polished floors, shiny surfaces and dove-gray accents. Elsewhere, generously sized rooms have recently undergone a slick multimillion-dollar facelift and are surprisingly quiet, considering the lively setting below.
With more than a hundred choices, the breakfast buffet at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner is also fantastic, while the authentic Scottish treats at Itchycoo restaurant are no less impressive. A cozy leisure center, with a tranquil indoor pool and well-equipped gym, completes the picture of what you’ll get inside – when you’re not steps away, listening to a bagpipe player or shopping for a new tartan, that is.
You’ll stay in a comfortable Standard room with soothing hues, plush bedding and all the

In the summer, you can watch the world go by from the outdoor terrace.

How to Get There
Brilliant stay. Check in staff were excellent. Suite was superb with memorable views of the Royal Mile.
Location of the hotel is perfect for the Royal Mile and Princess Street. Onsite parking makes the Radisson so convenient.
This hotel is incredibly well located, right on the Royal Mile, at walking distance from the train station. It has modern facilities, comfortable beds and bathrooms, and the attention and friendliness of its personnel is to the commended. Aside from being close to many Edinburgh attractions (walking distance) it is also close to great restaurants, shops, and pubs, all at a great value. Highly reccomended.
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on Friday 8th November. On arrival at 10.30 we expected to just store our luggage,as check-in wasn't until the afternoon, however the lovely gentleman at check in advised our room was ready and could check in straight away.On finding out we were there to celebrate our birthdays he kindly upgraded our room and gave us free drink each(we really enjoyed the cocktail). He also advised of nice places to go and showed us everything we asked about on the map.Room was lovely,very spacious,huge bed which was very comfortable.Location to all amenities was pretty central.The pool was small but tranquil and enjoyed relaxing in the sauna and steam room.
Breakfast times was very good, especially if you wanted a lie in.
Would definitely recommend.The staff really make this hotel,from reception to catering to the cleaning staff,they were all lovely , pleasant and helpful
