We were early in checking in so managed to leave our bags. By the time we came back checked in, our bags were already in our rooms. Room... More

My daughter and I stayed here after a long flight from San Francisco. The hotel is beautiful, the staff was very pleasant, and the room we upgraded to had a fabulous view and a delicious buffet breakfast. The beds were soft and comfortable and the room was pretty quiet for being on a busy street. The best benefit was walking... More

Very funky hotel and great for a girls' weekend. I think the decor would have been wasted on my husband! Despite a wee hold up at reception, we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a top floor room with spectacular views and a lovely large bathroom. This was an ideal base for our shopping trip and we also enjoyed... More

Since I was there (April 2014) the Hotel changed its brand: no ore Missoni, but G&V Royal Mile. Fortunately, the content is unchanged; making it one of the nicest and more comfortable hotel in the UK. Designed, up to the last detail, by Italian designers family Missoni, The stigma they leaved is simply fantastic. Design rooms, bathrooms, hall, common spaces,... More

This was a treat after a busy year. The service was excellent, with all our needs anticipated before we need to ask! The food was really tasty and the portion sizes perfect. It was a shame to leave and go back into the real world. Looking forward to my next visit.

My husband booked a surprise night for me and it was a very nice mini get away for us. It was bucketing down when we arrived by taxi but the doorman whooshed up and sheltered us with a big golf umbrella. Check in was smooth and efficient.

Very centrally located along the Royal Mile. Lots of eateries and shops to explore nearby. Only wished we have been informed about the name change from the Missoni. We stood outside being confused before venturing in to inquire. And the location of the tiny reception desks/stands at the side of the main door, while the bar took centrestage, was a... More

A great hotel in a great location. It was the Missoni and has only recently changed to the G & V. At least two cab drivers had never heard of the G & V. It still has the minimalistic décor of the old Missoni and has inherited some of the problems. We had luggage for ten weeks and there was... More
