In historic Edinburgh the Royal Mile represents Scotland's history whereas the Missoni manages to combine traditional hospitality with cutting edge sophistication. The central location is perfect for both the vacationer and business traveler. From the warmth of the front desk to the meals and service at the outstanding Italian restaurant...its a pleasure to visit! Rooms are a nice, modern contrast...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
