We booked a hotel quite late on for the 2012 Festival and whilst central we were not impressed. So for 2013 we booked early and treated ourselves to the Missoni based on all the reviews. Well, the massed reviews do not lie and the hotel did us proud. We were there for a week drawn by the Festival and attended four or more events per day so that being right in the centre was a huge advantage. We specifically requested a quiet room and were given a third floor room overlooking the Courtyard which fulfilled our needs. Given that we were there for a reasonable period we could have done with more drawer space but that is a minor criticism. On a positive note, a bulb went in a bedside lamp late one evening and we left it next to the lamp the following morning and it was replaced on our return. To be honest it was probably one if the quietest hotel rooms we have ever stayed in so that we were able to recharge for the following days events. The staff in all parts of the hotel were excellent, friendly and keen to assist when requested. The hotel, particularly at Festival time, is not cheap but you get what you pay for and our needs were well covered. We left Edinburgh after a week of varied entertainment. Will we be back in the City next a festival? You bet, but for two weeks.
