Was going to Edinburgh to visit the Military Tattoo with some friends and chose the Missoni on the strength of the reviews on this site. The hotel was absolutely perfect for us - only a few minutes walk from the Castle and right in the middle of the Old Town.
Lots of wonderful restaurants nearby - you have to visit Howies on Victoria Street for lunch or dinner - the food and staff are amazing!!!! Also a short stroll downhill has you in the shopper's heaven of George Street etc. Apart from the location the Missoni's rooms are fabulous - huge beds with pillows and duvets to die for. Check out the sound system in the bathroom! The free water, soft drinks,milk and crisps in the mini bar were a great touch. Also towels were replaced night and morning - how often does that happen in a hotel? The guys on reception made our very early check in hassle free - they stored our luggage and phoned us when the room was ready and when we got back our luggage was already in our room. They were helpful, pleasant and chatty as were the kilted porters. We had breakfast in the restaurant both mornings and one dinner - the food was excellent - especially breakfast. The service at breakfast would be my only area of minor criticism - despite asking for tea not to be brought out until our cooked breakfast was brought it still arrived as we were having cereal. On the second morning our cooked breakfasts were brought out when we were still eating our cereal - also some of the waiting staff would need to learn to smile especially the female staff - one young lady could have curdled the miilk she was so sour! But overall the Missoni was spectacular and we would definitely return.
