Ideally located next to the Royal Mile, Hotel Missoni is not completely what I expected with a five-star experience. Brightly coloured with a modern theme throughout (so be warned if you're a fan of cream walls and antique furniture), the room was well equipped, particularly with mirrors if you are one who likes to admire yourself whilst sat on the...

I booked a one night stay at the Missoni for a birthday treat and was thoroughly disappointed with the whole experience. The one positive thing I can say is that the colourful décor is unmistakably Missoni...but that is where the positive comments end. Rude dismissive door men on arrival, a lengthy check in process, an obligatory £100 pre authorisation on... More

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend in Edinburgh and stayed at the Missoni while there. It was a very enjoyable experience. The hotel is located in a great part of Edinburgh, literally steps from the Royal mile, Edinburgh castle, Victoria street, Grassmarket and some of the prettiest streets I have ever seen. New Town is an... More

Just returned from a surprise valentines weekend. As expected, the decor in the hotel lives up to the Missoni brand with pretty much everything kitted out in it.

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.
