“Style with comfort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This was an overnight treat for a friends 50th birthday. The hotel is in a great location just off the Royal Mile at the castle end. You are welcomed at the door by helpful and nattily styled staff in Missoni designed kilts. Coming into reception and the main bar it does not look 5 star. Security is quite good as you cannot access the lift without your room key. The corridors are quite warren like. The room did not have a view but was immensely comfortable. This was a twin,it was not large but stylishly designed. The beds and linen gave a great nights sleep. The nespresso machine was a step up from a kettle . The bathroom was one of the highlights,a double shower with the facility to sit. The Missoni toilettries and Missoni bathrobes.
The bar gets busy of an evening and serves good cocktails. In the restaurant we were served an excellent meal by attentive waiting staff. The breakfast also did not disappoint although when we came down for breakfast we did have to wait as the restaurant was full. However an area was set aside to wait where you coulsd help yourself to tea/coffe and muffins.After a short wait we were shown to our table. The buffet was extensive and well stocked and a hot breakfast order was taken and cooked freshly in the kitchen. I would call this hotel a 4 1/2 *rather than a 5* but would recommend.

I could live in Hotel Missoni. I had long wondered why the revered Italian house would have their debut hotel open in Edinburgh, Scotland, but after one day in the city, visiting my brother attending university there, I instantly knew why. I was pleasantly surprised by the youthful, artsy, music-driven, fashion-forward culture of the medieval college town. It even has a bustling cocktail scene, led by Bartender Magazine's 15th best bar in the world, The Bramble. The hotel soaks up all these elements, encapsulating them into a package of all-things Missoni, from the robes to the sheets to the cocktails in the avant-garde lobby bar. Each piece of furniture, fixture and element of style was curated and hand-picked by the Missoni family. As a fan of the fashion brand, I like to see how they view interior design and hospitality...and it turns out that it's just as fashion-forward and delightful as any runway show the house has put on.

I always love my trips to Edinburgh but this break was made even more enjoyable by my decision to experience Hotel Missoni. Absolutely fabulous...from the warm easy welcome I received when booking in to the "haste ye back" farewell from the concierge on departure, it was a very enjoyable stay. Staff were friendly, extremely efficient and nothing seemed too much trouble. Room was very well appointed with attention to the tiniest detail. Food was first class with an excellent choice catering for all tastes. The decor was modern and bright contributing to the overall ambiancece. The valet parking is well worth the additional expense as parking in this part of town can be difficult. Will certainly be returning.

Have just spent a weekend at this hotel for the first time. It was an outstanding experience. It has all the incredibly high service standards of a Four Seasons or Mandarin Oriental, but with a personal touch that is more akin to a very fine small hotel. The staff were incredible with little touches that constantly surprised us. It is refreshing to be able to deal with intelligent, helpful staff with a can-do attitude and who anticipate your every need. The decor is modern and cool though if you don't like Missoni furnishings you will not like this place. The location is good (more for tourists than business) and is relatively easy to get to - a current advantage with Edinburgh's ludicrous tram/traffic works making more expensive options like the Balmoral harder to reach. We didn't eat in the hotel other than breakfast (which was first rate) so can't really comment on the dining. The bar was okay - nothing to write home about. I'm a regular traveller to Edinburgh and have previously tended to stay in the Balmoral which is good if a little stuffy and dated. Going forward, the Missoni would be my first choice in Edinburgh - good location, good rooms but with some of the best staff I've encountered world-wide. A refreshing and excellent experience.
