Great location, nice staff but not very clean

Very helpful staff and excellent location for sites, shopping and catching trains. Safe too. Room decorated nicely but not very clean. Hallways on my floor were dirty.

Central location - Great hotel

This hotel has a wonderful location and is within comfortable walking distance of most of the things that you want to see and do. We walked to the castle, shops, the museum and the ghost tour meeting spot without much time or effort. There was usually the sound of bagpipes in the air. The rooms on the pub side of the building can be noisy on the lower floors at night. There are no drawers in the hotel room. We were on a wait list for a luggage rack. I'd stay here again.

Radisson Blu - Edinburgh

For a hotel of this caliber and expense I was not satisfied that my room had several stains on the carpet, a very large chip in the tub and a massive crack running through the bathroom sink. I would also expect hotels of this price range to offer free WiFi since many less expensive hotels do. To me, the best thing about the hotel is it's location in the heart of Old Town and only a short walk from the train station.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Take at least one of the many late night ghost walks. Several meet just footsteps away from the hotel.

A nice place to stay

A great location on the Royal Mile. The weather was very changable, so it was nice to be close to so many attractions.

Very nice hotel, great location

The hotel was very nice. Location was probably the best on the Royal Mile. Right in the center of the mile with a taxi pick up right out front. The business center computers were slow and didn't always work. My key card often didn't work. The staff was helpful.
