We have just spent one night at this fantastic hotel. Very clean rooms, brilliant staff, great service, lovely spa. Overall we loved it. We didn't use the bar or restaurant on this occasion. Only downside had been our toast was cold at breakfast but still not enough of an issue for me to drop it down a star. I still...

We had the opportunity last week to attend an Exclusive Four Course Sicilian Dinner with Giorgio Locatelli, in the lovely Cucina restaurant. It did not disappoint, the food was beautifully presented, and the combinations and flavours were wonderful. We opted for matching wines which complimented the different courses. The staff were attentive and helpful and took time to explain each...

Again, Tripadvisor comes to the rescue! I admit to being a bit of a snob when it comes to hotels; not only does the "wow" factor of a place has to impress, but a good deal or discount makes for a pleasant stay, me thinks! I searched for the top hotels in Edinburgh and voila! Hotel Missoni certainly stood out...

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.
