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.

Just home having spent our 3rd visit to this gorgeous Hotel, right in the heart of the buzzing Royal Mile. Half way between the top and the bottom of the Mile, you are only a 5 to 10 minute walk from Princess Street and a huge variety of shops and all the local transport

The hotel was very comfortable and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Pablo was so warm, positive and helpful on reception. The location is great - quiet and very accessible for all the main sites. We loved our time at the hotel and will be back.

Hello Tania E, There are a number of easy transportation methods to Edinburgh City Centre; Airport – City Tram: £5.50 per person / per journey, Travel time: 30mins Airlink 100 – Bus: £4.50 per person / £7.50 return, Travel time: 25mins Taxi, £20 – £25, Travel time: 20 – 30 mins (depending on traffic) I would personally recommend the Airlink 100 bus to / from Waverly Bridge as the buses are very frequent and its the closest public transport to the hotel, 5 mins walk via Cockburn St. We look forward to welcoming you to Radisson Blu soon!

"Ask for a quiet room when booking and tell them it's a birthday as this seems to win favour from reading other reviews!"
"Don't bother spending additional money on a superior room - Save your money for the other parts of your trip!"
"The views to the rear of the property are not great but if you choose to overlook the Royal Mile they aren't bad."
"Arthur's Seat view rooms are at the back of the hotel, so quieter."
"The receptionist took all our requests on board and dealt with our wishes"
