A Cozy Hotel”

I stayed at this hotel for 4D/3N with my family (husband and 3 children). This is my second time to Edinburgh but for the first time stayed at this hotel. We booked 2 superior rooms. The room is big enough but the bathroom is too small, the bed is very comfy. The reception staffs is friendly and helpfull, cause he gave me all the informations about the hotel. The location of Radisson Blu is very good, near to some cafes, restaurants, bars, gift shops and not far from Edinburgh Castle (it can be reached by walk) and some tourist’s spots. We are very happy to stay at this hotel and will recommend to my friends and will stay at this hotel again if we go back to Edinburgh another time.

The reception staff, location, close to the train station

Luckily we chose this hotel to stay in. It is within walking distance to Edinburgh Waverly station and also from the Tram station which runs between the airport and the centre of the town. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful. The free WiFi was a bonus. The tea and coffee making faility in the room was very useful. The room was large and the bed comfortable

Perfect Location for a good price”

Location, cleanliness, helpful staff

Perfect. We were in Edinburgh as a stop off between the airport and a wedding venue and also for the hen party. The hotel was super close to restaurants, bars, shops, everything. The staff were very helpful, as me and my partner were arriving at different times, they checked us in separately which meant we weren't constricted in the room waiting for each other. Rooms were clean, neat and we had a great view. Did not try the food, it looked delicious, but as with all hotels it is a little bit more expensive than it could be!

I really loved my stay at the Radisson. The staff were exceptional, helpful, looking for ways to make my stay more pleasant. I could not have asked for a better experience. The location was perfect. Right on the Royal Mile, with shops, historical sights and restaurants just a few steps away. Parking was easy and accessible as well. The view from my room was stunning. Thank you one and all at the Radisson Blu.

Great service, location, comfortable rooms
None

Stayed here 3 nights From check in to room service, bar staff and standard of service it was hard to fault. Did not eat at the restaurant but from the dishes I saw being served to food looked GOOD! Located on the royal mile this is handy to everything Edinburgh has to offer. Grassmarket is 10mins away and very close to shopping and the castle. Will be staying here again on my next visit to Edinburgh !
