Unfortunately we didn't get too much time in the hotel with a short but busy weekend planned although we can say this is a very smart, designer hotel with excellent service. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and all seemed focused on giving their guests a great experience. In terms of location it is perfect. Right on the...

The best thing about this hotel is the proximity to the castle and easy access to the attractions of Edinburgh. The rooms are modern and stark in style but at the same time are clean and comfortable. This hotel is fine for maybe 2 nights but I would not suggest a lengthy stay. The staff are helpful and attentive. The...

I had high expectations of my first stay at the hotel Missoni and was not disappointed. From our initial greeting to our departure the staff were unfailingly attentive, nothing was too much trouble.

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.
