The best thing about this hotel is the proximity to the castle and easy access to the attractions of Edinburgh. The rooms are modern and stark in style but at the same time are clean and comfortable. This hotel is fine for maybe 2 nights but I would not suggest a lengthy stay. The staff are helpful and attentive. The only complaint was that the AV equipment in the conference room failed on both days which was disruptive at the time.

Stayed here in December 2013 with my wife for a long weekend having never visited Edinburgh. The location of the hotel is perfect, nice walk to the castle and also a short walk to the German/Scottish Market (at Xmas time of year). Parking is available which saves the hassel of trying to park anywere else. The rooms are great, can tell this is a new hotel, Couldn't fault the service, with complementary drinks from the mini bar and free movies on the TV. Beds are comfy and the shower is great!. Loved this hotel and would definitely stay again!

I had high expectations of my first stay at the hotel Missoni and was not disappointed. From our initial greeting to our departure the staff were unfailingly attentive, nothing was too much trouble.

Our room was beautifully appointed and decorated in the designer's unique signature patterns. We especially enjoyed the complimentary toiletries, funky slippers and the very comfortable bed after a long day's sightseeing. We then enjoyed a delicious evening meal and were especially impressed by the wines on offer. Once again the service was impeccable.

All in all we had a fantastic break in fabulous surroundings attended to by prfessional , friendly staff. We'll be back!

Stayed: February 2014, travelled with family

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh for the night in February 2014 and had an amazing time!

We were staying in a brilliant suite on the 5th floor.. The huge bath tub and pink decor was definitely to my girlfriends taste! The suite was well laid out with everything you could need and was very cosy!

All the staff throughout our stay were friendly, helpful and very approachable. Nothing was too much trouble!

We had dinner in Hotel Missoni's restaurant Cucina and were very happy with the service and the meals we had. The pleasent surpise of complimentary prosecco also went down very well. All the waiters were great and couldn't do more for us.

My girlfriend had pre organised a trip to the spa, which she was very excited about and it definitely delivered! I was a little apprehensive as I had never been to a spa before but I was so surprised and pleased at how relaxed we were made to feel. We were both booked in for full body Deep Tissue massages and we were both extremely pleased with our treatments. Our therapists Rebecca and Heather were so kind and took the time to get to know our needs and explained the treatments before hand which was great! They were both extremely helpful and very professional throughout our visit and made us feel right at home.

I would highly recommended Hotel Missoni not only for its prefect location in Edinburghs city center but for the fabulous staff, beautiful views and great atmosphere.

From two very happy customers!

I visited the hotel on the 13th of February to celebrate my partner's birthday. I was not sure if we would get a table at the restaurant as it would be taken over by couples celebrating their love. But we did!

We had first a drink at the bar before dinner and then head upstairs. The guys at the bar told us to do not worry about the bill as they would add it to our dinner. Nice touch! Nothing to worry then. We booked an early dinner as you need to be realistic when you try to book places at the very last minute.

We were welcomed and taken to our table, offered appertives and menus. We kindly accepted and then we started enjoying. We had starters, mains and fried courgettes as side dishes (must have them) so therefore we spent a good 2 hours in the restaurant.

I had a great time with different wines for starters and mains. I have been reading reviews saying that service is slow but in my opinion if I go to ENJOY dinner I would expect to be at least 2 hours in a restaurant. People has been writting that service is slow but I do not go to restaurants to be rushed and out in an hour! I go there to enjoy the time and talk with my partner. If you do not like the concept of talking, relax and enjoy a nice dinner without being rushed, maybe then Cucina is not your place.

Will be back many times as I have been before.

My family and i stayed at the start of December and although the hotel was very busy they was exceptionally attentive to us throughout our stay. Also the rooms are beautiful with incredible views of the city and its perfectly located. Breakfast was delicious and again the staff here were more that friendly and helpful.

One of the best stays at a hotel ive had and i would and i do constantly recommend this place to all!!!
