“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

I'm writing this in my room just before check out and we have had a lovely stay. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are classy but very fashionable, the free mini bar and the nespresso machines are a nice touch. I love the slippers!!!! Great location next to the royal mile and just a stroll (or a roll) down the bank to the grassmarket area. I will definetly stay again. Thanks Missoni!

Dear SarahBriggs86,

Many thanks for your 5 star review of your stay at Hotel Missoni. It is always very pleasing to read when we, as a team have, gone the extra mile to ensure that our guests receive only the very best service. I have made sure that team members have been informed of our perfect feedback, which is a very nice pre Christmas present before the festive week ahead.

Please do not forget about us! Spread the Missoni word and I hope to see you again in the near future,

Kind regards,

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Missoni for one night while in Edinburgh seeing a musical. Doormen were friendly and helpful on arrival. Reception staff also greeted us with a smile and super efficient service. Even though we arrived early we were shown to our room straight away. We then got a phonecall from a member of the reception staff called James informing us that he would like to treat us to an upgrade! Our original room was nice but the upgraded room was that bit more luxurious. Really made our stay more special and romantic! Breakfast was tasty in the morning (unfortunately seemed slightly understaffed though). Would recommend the eggs benedict! Over all very enjoyable stay and with staff who bend over backwards to make sure of it. Will be staying here next time we are in Edinburgh.

Being from Scotland I knew there'd been a lot of buzz about this hotel opening in Edinburgh so was wondering how our 2 night stay would be. I wasn't disappointed - everything about it met or exceeded expectations. We had a fab weekend in Edinburgh staying in such a well maintained, contemporary and chic hotel. Would definitely recommend as a treat - great little touches in our room and an insight into how you would want a modern hotel to be designed...!

Beautiful modern hotel, rooms have great extras inc. free non alcohol mini bar, coffee machine, luxury toiletries and cozy bathrobes. We used room service during our stay which was both great quality and excellent value. The staff are all very pleasant and most helpful with any queries that we had. Breakfast choices were terrific and the eggs Benedict was perfect. Will definitely stay at the Missoni on my next visit to Edinburgh.

My wife and I first stayed at the Missoni a couple of years back, and have been hooked every since. Awesome cool, modern decor, great service as soon as you step foot through the door.

Rooms are well equipped, and a young man pops up with a chocolate and a turn down service which is always great when we come back completely mullered from a night on the tiles.

The cocktail bar is superb, we always like a nightcap there after an evening out. Bathroom is ace, we have stolen the idea of the showers and decor haha!

Absolutely love this place and we are back to stay again in February for an anniversary/Birthday treat.

The views of the Royal Mile from our room is the icing on the cake.

Room Tip: Ask to be plonked on the Royal Mile.

My husband and I both work in the events industry. We just tried to check into the hotel and were greeted warmly by the doorman who immediately took our bags to the check-in counter. We were told that our room was not available however if we wanted to pay an additional 100 pounds we would get an upgraded room that was available! This was a bit off putting especially since the hotel was not near capacity the evening before. We politely declined. We needed a few items from our bags (which were already taken away). When brought back, he offered us to go through them in the lobby instead of showing us to the rest rooms. So far not 5 star service in my books.

This was our first stay but hope that it wont be our last in a very contemporary and comfortable hotel in an excellent location. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and nothing was a trouble even though we arrived earlier than the suggested check in time. The hotel has a wonderful cocktail Lounge with an extensive menu and a very relaxed but vibrant atmosphere. The rooms were very attractive and well equipped and attractive décor. The only issue that we had was the service at Breakfast which was a bit chaotic despite there being a lot of staff around as we had to ask for tea and coffee 3 times and had to seek out our own cutlery. However this didn't spoil our trip too much but just lacked a little attention to detail on an otherwise very enjoyable stay.
