We took the train up to Edinburgh for the weekend and the weather was fantastic right from the off. Beautiful blue skies, a great journey up. Arriving in Edinburgh chilled and happy, our spirits were lifted even higher when we reached the Missoni which is a short walk from Waverley Station. We were greeted by a very cool guy with dreads and a designer Missoni kilt. He was obviously a big hit with the ladies.
Check in was painless, courteous, efifcient and friendy. We arrived early so left our bags with them and headed out to explore Edinburgh. We had lunch next door at the excellent Ondine restaurant and then after more sightseeing headed back to the Missoni.
Our room was very contemporary and had quality Missoni furnishings and top f the range B&O TV etc. The bed was large and extremely comfortable. Nespresso machine with a good choice of coffees, plus a very nice touch was the complimentary mini bar - just soft drinks and water, but more than most hotels will give you.
The bathroom was beautifully designed with quality toiletries - excellent shower too.
We didn't eat at the Missoni as we dheaded out into Edinburgh for the evening but we did enjoy the on-tap Prosecco and some expertly prepared martinis.
I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay somewhere incredibly central, stylish and comfortable. We would definitely go back.
