Radisson Blu – In the Middle of the Action 

About Edinburgh

The Radisson Blu sits in Edinburgh, which has been the capital of Scotland since the 15th century.  The city is an eclectic mix of old and new.  Known as the center for medical, law, science, and engineering education, Edinburgh has been the pinnacle of education in Europe for hundreds of years.  Of equal note, however, is Edinburgh’s dedication to the arts.  The Edinburgh International Festival is held in the city yearly celebrating performing arts. 

What to do in Edinburgh

The Radisson Blu blends in with the architecture, adding a unique 16th century façade to the city.  Their accommodation will make you feel at home and serve as the perfect perch for your Edinburgh excursions.  From the Radisson Blu you can see sites like the Holyrood Palace, Royal Botanical Gardens, or the National Museum of Scotland.  One of Edinburgh’s most endearing qualities is that it is a city that feels like a small town.  Strolling through it will reveal small shops, historical buildings, and a sense of the culture that will be missed if you focus on tours and monuments alone.

When to go to Edinburgh

Edinburgh experiences mild climates considering its positioning.  Its location between the hills and the coast of North Sea has earned Edinburgh the nickname ‘the windy city’.  Winter daytime temperatures rarely dip below freezing and summertime temperatures hardly ever go over 72º. 

The Perfect Home Base

The Radisson Blu is in the middle of the action.  Its location on the prestigious Royal Mile places the Radisson Blu in the middle of the history and culture that is intrinsic to Edinburgh.  But there are many things to enjoy while staying in like a well-appointed fitness center, spa, and a relaxing pool.  Itchycoo Bar & Kitchen offer meals in the Scottish tradition, giving you a taste of the region without ever having to leave the hotel.  There is also a breakfast buffet every morning.  Free Wi-Fi and wired high-speed Internet round out the creature comforts you would expect from such a fine establishment. 

The Bottom Line

The Radisson Blu is a wonderful place to consider your launching point during your trip to Edinburgh.  Lavish yourself in comfortable luxury while you plan the next excursion.  Whether you are heading to the Scottish Parliament of the Scotch Whiskey Heritage Centre, the Radisson Blu will be the perfect place to lay your head after a day filled with sightseeing.

Expert Reviews
Built in the late 1980s, this city-center hotel was designed to blend in among the 16th-, 17th-, and 18th-century buildings on the Royal Mile.
Time Out
Originally the Scandic Crown. ... A clean-cut, sleek and monochromatic look with subtle Scottish motifs. Service standards are high, and you'll walk out of reception on to the Royal Mile.

You’ll find no tartan here, despite the 16th-century exterior - inside it’s contemporary all the way. It has a small spa, gym and pool, is family-friendly and has the great asset of city...
