wanted to stay in a boutique hotel and missoni popped up on google. we're not old geezers but the lobby is a little too hip-happening for my taste. the doormen in missoni kilts are cute. the hotel is located smack in the middle of tourist central which was great for our quick trip. military tattoo was just around the corner. we weren't planning on going but the hotel had tickets for the night we could go even tho the event is sold out months in advance. the rooms are comfortable with free mini-bar (water, soda, milk, chips), wi-fi, plus 4-pieces of laundry. overnight parking is £35, reservation recommended. our room faced the back and was nice and quiet. the gym is pretty small but with all the hills in edinburgh, shouldn't need a gym (just climb up to arthur's seat or calton hill). we got in late the first night so ate at cantina downstairs. it's one floor up from the lobby so there's loud music still but not as bustling. the homemade tagliatelle is absolutely amazing. i loved the al dente texture of the pasta. we liked it so much, we had dinner there our 2nd night too. other food is very well-prepared too. service was a little slow but staff throughout the hotel are super friendly. the tv in our room was possessed. after turning it off, it would turn on again. we had to unplug it so it wouldn't keep turning on. i've never understood the half doors on european baths, which they had here too. the floor outside gets wet if the half door isn't long enough.
