“Cool Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We had a fantastic stay in Edinburgh and at the Missoni.
We had a warm welcome from the doorman dressed in his kilt and in fact all the staff during our stay were helpul without exception. The hotel decor is distinctive Missoni all the way including the bedroom design. Our room was very clean ,not massive but ok for a few days, with a long narrow window which due to its design cannot be opened. We had a Nespresso coffee machine with which we were so impressed we brought one as soon as we got home. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom area spacious. The only small downside was there is not much storage space in the way of drawers and only a small hanging space for clothes. The bar area is chic and is obviously a popular place. The cocktails are great especially the peach bellini. We ate at the hotels Italian restuarant twice which is high praise from us. The waiting staff again were very friendly and attentive. We would definately stay here again next time we visit Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor as you do get a slightly better view although our rom was at te fron...

We spent 2 nights here and on arriving we were met by the concierge, who took our bags to reception and got us booked in. The concierge are very good, always happy to advise on places to see, places to go and visit. Our bags were taken upto the room for us. The next day the concierge asked us on the way out if we would like directions to any where or would like a taxi called.. We stayed in a maggiore room which are a bit bigger, the rooms are modern and well equipped. with complimentry mini bar, with wine and soft drinks. Felt the mini bars should of had some sort of snack, e,g chocolate or nuts. The bar down stairs is a popular cocktail bar which gets busy. the coctails here are very good and the staff are very helpful. We had breakfast included in the room which was good, but the cooked breakfast is small. It is also expensive at just short of £20 per head for a choice of the buffet and kitchen.
The staff make this hotel, from the concierge, reception and bar staff. They could'nt do enough for you and were very friendly. Even on checking out when most hotels just want rid of you they are still trying to help, looking after the bags, calling taxi's etc. Its not a typical 5 star where they make you feel uncomfortable and look down on you. The very opposite.Bed are comfortable and the location is also very good. The only thing i would fault is the price of the hotel car park. £35 per night, i didnt check this until i had booked the room. We ended up going on the train as we could'nt justify pay £70 for parking the car for 2 nights when you are already paying for a room.
Other than that i would recommend staying here!!!

Stayed for 1 night using vouchers bought as a wedding gift. I had (wrongly) assumed the vouchers were valid for a minimum of 12 months but, amongst the pricey packaging and literature I discovered (shock horror!), that in fact they only had 6 months validity (a month too late!!!).

Anyway, on 1st contact reception indicated that it was unlikely they could do anything but within 48 hours they had agreed to extend by 3 months.

Having stayed here the hotel clearly warrants all comments relating to its trendiness, comfy bed, amazing shower, free movies and a very good breakfast. Also found there to be no noise at night either within the hotel or the street outside. Staff were good, style was good, cocktails were good; for 5 star (and a rate of £230) may have expected pool/sauna/steam room and perhaps even a nice complimentary bar for an hour (my definition!)

That said it is no doubt a very cool hotel in a great location.

Excellent modern hotel in a great part of Edinburgh. Very helpful and friendly staff who looked great in there missoni styled wear including the kilted concierge who takes your car to the underground car park. Our suite was fab and had complimentary mini bar and laundry - loved the dressing gowns. have have room service once which was very quick and the breakfasts were scrumptious. Very handy for the witchery where we enjoyed a fabulous evening. Can't wait to come again.

Ok so we have done the 5star thing where a very posh man greets you and makes you feel instantly uncomfortable! This place was a far cry from that. Staff with real personalities....yes hospitality staff that were actually hospitable! Rare! Everyone seemed to be cross trained to help every customers needs.

The rooms were even better than expected, very clearly indivdually designed, ours had a floor to ceiling wall to wall window which had stunning views across the Royal Mile and we could even see the sea. The little touches makes all the difference - slippers & robes, gorgeous linen, nicely stocked mini bar, and lovely toiletries.

The bar was far from stuffy or formal, more chic boutique. The atmosphere was electric and the cocktails divine!

I cannot fault our experience here and would recommend to anyone. Pure decadence!
