Stayed here on a weekend break to Edinburgh to attend a function. Staff were friendly and check in was quick and easy. Room was immaculate and quirky. Breakfast was good and again staff were friendly. However, in my opinion this place was not up to the standard of other 5 star places we have stayed, it felt more like a... More

Group of 4 in separate rooms. Modern building in great location. Very minimal opportunity for off loading - one small bay in front of hotel, which has double yellow lines, and space for 2 cars only - often occupied by cabs or deliveries. One of our party is disabled, so his blue badge helped, but their pricey valet parking is... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. Could not have asked for a better location. Lots and lots of taverns and eateries in the area. Our room was very spacious and had an incredible view. Not only were we able to admire the beautiful architecture but we were also able to see Arthur's Seat. Fortunately we had two days of sunshine... More

We stayed here for a week in August. The staff seemed genuinely happy to see us and could not do enough for us. The rooms are quite spacious for a city hotel. The amenities were very nice as well. It is very art deco, so if you are looking for a traditional Scottish hotel, this is not it. No complaints... More

From door man on the staff were a pleasure to deal with. Our room to the rear was very clean and comfortable. We had no internal noise either. The flash "Missoni" decor has stood up to the passing years with minor floor and wall damage. Large shower no bath. Breakfast which was included was good. Excellent position for the historic... More

Stayed here with my husband and we were really pleased with the location of the hotel - right at the top of the Royal Mile, so within easy reach of the Castle and many restaurants / bars / pubs etc. Staff were friendly and helpful (especially the kilted doormen!) - we were even left a welcome note in our room...

Booked two nights at the hotel months ago when it was Hotel Missoni and have certainly read more mixed reviews since change. Was very pleasantly surprised. Arrived and felt very anxious as no real drive in but our helpful kilted doorman immediately assisted with luggage and took the car away without fuss. At £35 a night the valet parking is... More

I recently stayed here while on a tour of Great Britain. I only wish I could have stayed longer than one night. The hotel is full of color and style while maintaining a comfortable ambiance. It is centrally located, within walking distance to many historical landmarks. I would love to return and try out their fabulous spa!
