Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh, Scotland
With its attractive turret and 16th-century appearance, The Radisson Blu Hotel is situated in the town’s historic heart, on the Royal Mile. The hotel is said to have been built on the site of an old Close, where the infamous Bloody Mackenzie once lived. This area has seemed to have been susceptible to fires in the past. In fact, the hotel fire in 1992 was attributed, by some, to Mackenzie’s poltergeists. Other alleged activities include guests finding items that have been moved around their rooms. Voices and noises have been heard emanating from bathrooms. Televisions turning on and off and changing channels inexplicably have also been reported. Edinburgh Castle is always a great place to explore for those wanting to be just tourists. Please check the information and availability Button for this Hotel
