We chose Hotel Missoni to help us celebrate 45 years of marriage in style. From the moment we arrived via taxi at the hotel entrance, we were put well at ease with our luggage being removed from the taxi by a very pleasant Missoni kilted porter called Salvador.
As we approached reception we were greeted very warmly by the staff on duty. We were accompanied to our rooms by Salvador and our luggage and all the features including TV, lighting, Nespresso machine etc were all explained to us as required. The rooms were spotless & I could find no fault in presentation, hygiene or cleanliness. The rooms were well soundproofed as my husband who was next door could not hear my music playing or my TV during the day or at night. Nor could we hear street noise or other guests (although the 4th Floor was very quiet)
The minibar was well stocked with fresh milk, water, soft drinks,1/2 bottles of red & white wine & lager. The coffee machine made beautiful espresso.
The rain shower was a treat and one could have spend a long,long time in it frequently. Towels were beautifully laundered and wonderful to use as were complimentary slippers & bath products. Drainage of shower,wash basin & toilet were 100% efficient
We did not have an opportunity to use the restaurant as we had received a gift for our special occasion to visit another prestigious Italian restaurant in the area for lunch followed by theatre in the evening, but we wish we had been able to experience the food as the menu looked innovative & enticing.
Two nights came to an end all too soon, but there is an Italian saying about "having steak every day". It suggests is better to be left with a yearning to return to, rather than an overload of too long with a good thing?
Hotel Missoni is not 100% perfect in all aspects for every guest needs of very diverse public . No hotel, pub or restaurant anywhere can be perfect for such demands imposed by today's standards, but they all can continuously strive to be the best they can be & Hotel Missoni works very hard to maintain as perfect a standard as possible in our estimation.
Well Done! We will return. Thank you for an almost 100% perfect experience. You made our 45th Anniversary even more special.
I mentioned only one member of staff by name, who was with frequency there for us, but that in no way reflects on all the other members of staff who are part of the grand team of superb customer service at Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh and served us very well.
