There is certainly a lot to take in with the decor at The Missoni - on every corner a different pattern, colour, texture - sometimes good, sometimes cool, sometimes verging on a little overwhelming, and in some instances I felt like I was shopping in a retail store - catalogues also supplied in room...eek.
The size of our room was a little disappointing (especially for the price). However the bed was huge and comfortable, shower was fantastic, funky espresso machine was a nice touch, as was the complimentary mini bar. The wooden floorboards in the room at first seemed cool also. Cool was soon replaced with bewilderment, as you can hear every step your neighbours take - but perhaps sleeping is simply too cool for this hotel.
Staff were pleasant and eager to please with everything from directions to the nearest Starbucks to ordering some food from the Pizza Express under the building.
The location is great - loads of tourist attractions, shops and good restaurants/bars near by, and the walk to the main shopping area is around 15 minutes.
The bar in the main lobby was probably the biggest let down of the stay. Great set up, but the crowd (at a guess) would not be overly on brand for The Missoni, which unfortunately remained consistent over our 5 day stay.More
