Stayed for 1 night so that we could go to the ballet at the Festival Theatre. It was great that even in February it was close enough to walk back after the theatre ended. Welcome was very good, we had paid extra for 1 of the rooms on the 5th floor and the view was fabulous - we could see... More

Stayed here for a 30th birthday celebration. The best compliment I can give is that it was so good, I don't want to tell people the details/surprise of how good it is as we want it to be our special place. We upgraded to a suite with views over Arthurs Seat, East Lothian Coast, Royal Mile & Firth of Forth!... More

The hotel is situated right at the heart of Edinburgh attractions. The staff was professional and friendly, and the hotel design (Missoni textiles and patterns) very unique. If you are planning to take one of the day trips to the Highlands or distilleries, then you are in luck as most meetings points are near the hotel as well.

I stayed at the former Missoni Hotel for three nights during a business trip. The location of the hotel was good (within walking distance from the New Town). I stayed in the standard double room. I'll start with the positives: - I found the check-in to be quick and friendly. I particularly liked the uniform of the concierge; the kilt... More

We wondered if the change of ownership might mean the hotel wouldn't live up to its previous excellence but that certainly isn't the case. We received a warm welcome and early entry into our room that still contained the comfortable furniture, top quality fittings and nice touches like the delightful toiletries, Nespresso machine and free bottles of water. Apart looking... More

Very good position close to the castle, but whether you like this hotel depends on your personal taste, it's decorated with lots dark colours and low lighting. The room was decorated in the same style and was a good size, good bed, good bathroom. However, the clothes storage was ridicules, a small hanging area with sliding door and restricted access...

We stayed for 2 nights in a signature room and thought the whole stay was tremendous. We were warmly welcomed and our bags stored until our room was available. The room was well furnished with lovely cosmetics and unusually black gowns and slippers. The hotel is well located within easy walking distance of all the sights. The restaurant was perfect...
