A stay on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, with full Scottish breakfast and welcome prosecco

The Lowdown

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


Each morning, you’ll be treated to an authentic range of Scottish treats at the Super Breakfast Buffet in The Restaurant. For lunch and dinner, Itchycoo Bar and Kitchen offers quality traditional fare with a modern twist, such as Arbroath smokie fishcakes. Gluten-free/celiac diets are catered for upon request. In the summer, you can watch the world go by from the outdoor terrace.


The enviable location on the Royal Mile allows easy access to Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle. Other attractions include the iconic Scottish Parliament, National Museum of Scotland and the Scotch Whiskey Heritage Center. Waverley Station is steps away.

Excellent location on Royal Mile
Reviewed 3 days ago

We stayed in this hotel in April 2018 and it is located on the Royal Mile in a very convenient location to all of the tourist areas. Service was very good and the included breakfast was also very good

Really disappointing

I booked 3 nights, but after one night/day I have to conclude it’s a quite disappointing hotel. No adaptor for continental guests, a messy breakfast and serving oeuf benedict with mayonaise .... (in stead of sauce hollandaise). For about 300 euro/night ... So disappointing!

Such a wonderful hotel staff here

We just finished a 16 night trip to the U.K. The final 3 days were spent in Edinburgh where we splurged for a 'Turret Suite' in the Radisson Blu hotel. First off, the location is ideal - right in the middle of the Royal Mile. The hotel itself is totally modern inside with a classic 'castle like' external facade. The service was great - Franchesco the concierge was particularly helpful. We loved our VERY large Turret Suite with free mini-bar service, a nice breakfast included and use of a large pool and saunas. Definitely a smart choice in Edinburgh.

Best location in Edinburgh!

The hotel is in an amazing location right in the heart of the royal mile and is in a beautiful building. All the staff were very friendly and super helpful. We had a standard double bedroom but it was very spacious with a lovely big bed. Would highly reccomend!
