On our return to Edinburgh at the end of our trip, we selected this hotel in the heart of Edinburgh. It was a modern building in the middle of a UNESCO site of very old buildings, but somehow it was retrofitted in very nicely. Even though it's no longer a Missoni hotel, the Missoni design touches are everywhere, and very pleasant indeed. The actually room was not large, but the bathroom was! Thus I was able to move a small suitcase into the bathroom. And we were on a three week trip so we had large bags with us. We enjoyed the Delonghi coffee maker that used Nespresso coffee, which is good. Needless to say there were dozens and dozens of restaurants and attractions within walking distance. Holyrood Palace was an easy and interesting walk, as was the walk (in the rain) to the Museum of Modern Art.
Some might not enjoy the fact that it was on a very very busy corner! A bagpiper played all through the daylight hours across the street. Also it seemed that every night revelers were up until all hours on the street below, making noise. Edinburgh is a fun-loving city!!
The breakfast was not included, but was 15 pounds extra, which is way too much breakfast for us. Thus we discovered the Elephant House one block away, where JK Rowling wrote her first Harry Potter book. The staff were extraordinarily friendly and helpful and we enjoyed all their restaurant recommendations.
All in all, a definite repeater.
