Stayed two nights in this ultra modern hotel with eye watering choices of colours and designs throughout the hotel. From the Missoni design kilted doorman to the reception desk clerks and breakfast staff, we had nothing but excellent service. They were extremely helpful and friendly at all times. Bedroom was the Maggiore which was spacious and well appointed but why do hotels only provide one armchair and one desk chair when there is ample room for two armchairs so that a couple could sit and enjoy a coffee together? Bathroom had a rain drop shower and lovely toiletries.
Breakfast was a plentiful cold buffet selection but perhaps could have benefited from more Scottish breads, rolls, oatcakes etc rather than the ubiquitous and very boring small Danish pastries.
My biggest criticism would be that you are only allowed one item from the hot breakfast selection and for some unknown reason, in Scotland's capital city, porridge was included in this menu along with bacon, eggs etc. Surely porridge should be on offer with the other cereals and not included with the cooked items? We've just returned from a tour of Asia where delicious porridge was available every morning as standard, in all the hotels we stayed in. A lesson to be learned here
The location of the hotel is excellent, being just on the Royal Mile with the castle nearby. Perhaps not for the less able as there are many, many steps or hills to be negotiated in order to reach Princes Street and the rest of Edinburgh's attractions.
