Trips to new places are always interesting however the people you encounter often impact the overall experience you have. A simple thank you just isn't enough to express our gratitude for the friendliness and helpfulness extended by the following special people at the Hotel Missoni...Michael, Ian, Douglas, Guillermo, Felix, Matt & Steph. Our trip was made even more memborable by these individuals and we are so appreciative for all they did.

Stayed 2 nights as a base to explore the city and go to tom's kitchen/stand comedy club.

Check in good, asking if we needed help with reservations,etc.

We stayed at the back of the hotel and room was v quiet, luxurious and v comfy bed.

Free minibar, with soft drinks included and nespresso machine were v nice touches in the cool missoni styled room.

We also made use of the spa - my wife and I had simply the best deep tissue massage ever! The ladies service and treatment were first class.

Any q's let me know and I will answer.

The rooms are nice and friendly front staff. Problematic are the terms and conditions and the burden on the credit card! I recommend cash! In this regard, no five star performance!!!

This hotel is outstanding. Fantastic position on the corner of the Royal Mile near the Castle, amazing contempory decor throughout and wonderful attention to detail right down to nespresso coffee machine and free minibar in our room. We booked a superior room which means breakfast included but were upgraded to suite at no extra charge. The best feature by far was the staff. It is clearly the duty of every one of them to make sure your stay is enjoyable. And they succeeded. Valet parking is a little expensive at £35 per night but space is very limited and prebooking essential. We will go again

Room Tip: Book a superior double and breakfast is included.

From the moment you step in you know you are somewhere special. From the friendly staff, decor, the quality of the rooms, breakfast, you will not be disappointed. All in all, a beautiful hotel, and an experience that will not be forgotten quickly.

The concierge with the dreadlocks (I'm so sorry to forget your name) - thanks for being so great and attentive with my Mum. She loved every suggestion you gave her and your advice got the trip off to a good start.

We did the £200 a night package which included movies, alcohol free mini bar and breakfast. Room was outstanding, and bathroom lovely. We needed a lot of pillows as they were just too flimsy. It feels really pedantic to even mention it, but there you go.

The only drawback (and I see it also referenced below) was the breakfast team. They're slow and unapologetic for their mistakes. Even minor - just apologise and carry on. But the food was delicious and the buffet a real change with the italian additions.

This was very nearly a 5 star city experience...
