“A step above the rest”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Just when you thought hotel service had died, a stay here and you realise what you've been missing all these years. From walking through the front door to departure it is service with a capital S. Fantastic staff, a fab room and bar service that makes you want to go back. We will and I have no doubt the additional facilities will be used next time.

We have just spent one night at this fantastic hotel.

Very clean rooms, brilliant staff, great service, lovely spa. Overall we loved it. We didn't use the bar or restaurant on this occasion.

Only downside had been our toast was cold at breakfast but still not enough of an issue for me to drop it down a star. I still ate it!

I recently attended an event at Hotel Missoni. What a night! From the exquisite food, the attentive and friendly staff through to the relaxed and vibrant atmosphere, all in all it was a superb evening! I will most certainly be back, whether that be for client meeting, dinner for a special occasion in either of their wonderful restaurants or cocktails at the bar with the girls on a saturday night, I will most certainly be back! Thank you again for such an enjoyable evening - Hotel Missoni is a MUST for either dinner, drinks or to stay when in Edinburgh!

We had the opportunity last week to attend an Exclusive Four Course Sicilian Dinner with Giorgio Locatelli, in the lovely Cucina restaurant.
It did not disappoint, the food was beautifully presented, and the combinations and flavours were wonderful. We opted for matching wines which complimented the different courses.
The staff were attentive and helpful and took time to explain each dish and the wines.
Altogether a fantastic evening!

Dear Lesleyann23,

Thank you for choosing to dine with us at Cucina for the Giorgio Locatelli evening on the 19th November. We are delighted to have Giorgio as a consultant for Cucina and it was great to have his food showcased by our head chef Mattia Camorani. I am so pleased you had such a fantastic evening with us and I do hope you will return in the future. Maybe you might want to stay the night next time to experience what else Hotel Missoni has to offer in Edinburgh. Please feel free to touch base with me directly. Thank you for your valued review,

Wonderful helpful and friendly staff at this great hotel. Stayed for a weekend and they could not have been more helpful. The rooms were a great size with everything that you could ask for, great comfortable bed, I needed to ask for a firmer pillow and it was there when I got back. Wonderful nights sleep followed by a lovely breakfast with good service and great food.

Just returned from a long weekend at the Missoni with my partner and our friends. Edinburgh was incredibly busy this weekend probably due to the rugby and the hotel also appeared to be very busy. From the moment of checking in before time on Friday the staff were polite, attentive and incredibly helpful. The room that we had was beautifully spacious and absolutely quiet bearing in mind the very central location. Fantastic location and within walking distance of everything. The room had everything that we could possibly need .... And finally a hotel with a decent hair dryer ! ...... Room service and housekeeping were excellent particularly when we noticed that something had been spilt possibly during the housekeeping service and the bed covers appeared to be soaked with water. Whole bed changed within 5 minutes of reporting it. Only moan was that we waited almost an hour for breakfast on Sunday as our orders kept being given to somebody else... But all in all stylish, excellent service and fantastic location..loved it !

Again, Tripadvisor comes to the rescue! I admit to being a bit of a snob when it comes to hotels; not only does the "wow" factor of a place has to impress, but a good deal or discount makes for a pleasant stay, me thinks! I searched for the top hotels in Edinburgh and voila! Hotel Missoni certainly stood out in the reviews.

So, I had planned to see my beloved BellX1 on their Chop Chop tour, but at the time of booking, the Vicar street venue was sold out. As a dedicated fan, I then bought a ticket for their gig at the Electric Circus in Edinburgh. Naturally, Hotel Missoni was a great choice because it is situated a hop, skip (and trudge up a low hill!) away. I got the advanced booking deal, with a comfortably sized room, no breakfast included, but free WiFi and minibar, papers and laundry daily included. Not bad for a great location, comfy bed and stylish bathroom with access to the city and sights, all for £122 a night, VAT and service tax included!

Breakfast is tasty with a choice of Continental buffet for just £13 +/- a hot breakfast ( just an additional £5.50). Tasty, freshly squeezed juices, water with lemon, cucumber OR mint, freshly baked small pastries and cakes, cold cuts, fruit salad, yogurt and cereal.....and that's not counting the hot plate menu!

Staff are friendly and deco pleasing. Small gym which is perfect if you're the only one using it. Spa facilities are limited to just treatments, with no pool or sauna on the premises. But who has got time for that, when the sights and castle are beckoning to be explored! I love Edinburgh!

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room, and got one! Preferably as for the higher floors as the view out of the wi...

Dear coal 123,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay with us in Edinburgh. I am pleased that we were able to look after you so well for the gig that you were in Edinburgh for. I too am a massive BellX1 fan and am very jealous that you were able to catch them, I unfortunately could not go!

Please do touch base with me when you are next up in Scotland and I would be delighted to look after your reservation for you. Many thanks once again for your valuable feedback,
