As central as you can get - Radisson Blu is the perfect choice if you are heading for a gig in major venues like O2 Academy or First Direct Arena which are in walking distance. So are a number of more exciting live venues and bars. Nation of Shopkeepers is just across the street.
Radisson Blu is also near recommended sightseeing spots such as Town Hall, Leeds Cathedral, and Leeds University (The Refectory) and an ideal base camp for record shopping.
As for breakfast, you don’t need to look for another spot outside - there is no better option than having your first meal of the day in the hotel itself. Enjoy fresh smoothies, freshly baked bread, yummy local honey, or smoked salmon at a stretch. The interior is gorgeous with its colourful mosaic tiling, wooden plates, modern light bulbs, and nicely stocked up tables creating an ultra-warm and welcoming atmosphere. Probably one of the nicest places to sit and enjoy your coffee is the table below the Leeds graffiti wall also featuring Kaiser Chiefs’ I predict a riot slogan. Just perfect for spotting other guest wearing band shirts for one of tonight’s concerts in town.
