We arrived to the Missoni Hotel on a Thursday evening, and the scene was pretty quiet. With an empty bar and a quiet night all around, we should have taken the opportunity to hit the bar. But no, we got lazy up in our comfortable room with the minibar and its free Peroni beers.
On Friday night though, the place was hopping and every table in the bar was filled, even including the little ones near reception. Most people imbibing and sampling the little Italian appetizers available in the bar seemed to be locals. It made us feel a little bit better about the place, that it did at least get some action from the city. The hotel remained quiet though; despite our second-floor room location, the bustle of the downstairs bar and the location on a major street, we slept in peace and quiet.
Do we recommend the Hotel Missoni in Edinburgh? Yes, absolutely...BUT only if you're in favor of high design and colorful hallways and don't mind helping yourself to the minibar. Business travelers might want to stay clear.
