This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in! All the service is personal and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for all the friendly staff. The rooms are ultra modern and thoughtfully designed. They are roomy, clean and ours had a nice outlook. Perfectly located off the Royal Mile, close to tourist spots and lots of...

The room was good, but not overly impressive: modern features, comfy bed, great shower. The staff at reception were very polite and helpful. Unfortunately, we were not as impressed with breakfast - service was very slow, not particularly attentive and food very bland and 'bought-in'. Not sure we'd stay here again; don't feel we can justify the price against the...

Dear jlowleith, It is certainly disappointing to read the review of your experience at Hotel Missoni and it is a great shame that you have only awarded us with 3 stars, a standard that we are not used to receiving on this forum.

Dear no 1kat, Thank you for your review. Hotel Missoni is located just off the Royal Mile and part of our building is grade 2 listed. Only a small proportion of our rooms have windows that open and, of course, these can be requested by guests. Like all city centre hotels, street noise can occasionally be heard from bedrooms, but...

The hotel is located on Royal Mile which is perfect for exploring the city. Our room was well appointed and had a good view. We also liked the style which is very "now". The service was great.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
