The hotel really is pretty good, we stayed 2 nights. Unfortunately both nights the fire alarms went off, the first night was a case of well ok these things happen. We evacuated the building without seeing any staff, having to help elderly people down the stair well, walk right round the building to find we were allowed back in. One...

Dear Pixi1972, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and I would like to extend my apologies once again for the fire alarm sounding. Thankfully a full fire evacuation remains a rare event at our hotel but we can appreciate how frustrating this is for all of our guests. During our evacuation we immediately send staff to...

Stayed here for a couple of nights, where do I start! Didn't have a car service can can't comment. Hotel location is the best, smack bang in the middle of the royal mile, everything is on your doorstep, castle, bars, restaurants etc.... The free open wifi is good.... The rooms are great, just got a standard.. The staff were the...

Stayed 1 night (Saturday) with my wife and friends. Got to the hotel early (12.30pm) and was able to check in and leave our bags being told they would be taken to the room when it was ready. The hotel was very clean and bright. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and professional (a credit to the company). We...

The staff at the Radisson Blu, on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, could not have been more helpful. The hotel is in a perfect location, so that you can walk to the Edinburgh Castle, enjoy wonderful food at the local pubs and restaurants, and to catch the various tour buses. In addition, the bed was very comfortable, room service was...

We stayed 2 nights in April and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean and well appointed. The food especially the breakfast was outstanding. The staff were friendly and helpful. A great place for a base for site seeing. We stayed with a large group on a tour and found this hotel did a fabulous job taking care of us.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
