Hotel Missoni is a relative newcomer to the hotel scene in Edinburgh, but it has already made quite a name for itself. Established in 2009 by Rosita Missoni (of the Italian fashion house with the same name), five-star Hotel Missoni prides itself on its flamboyant designer decor, but also emphasizes its dedication to family-friendly hospitality.
Unlike many boutique hotels, Missoni is very happy to cater to families with children: they even offer a baby-sitting service! The result is a hotel which is positively brimming with bold, exuberant design, but manages to remain warm and friendly. This is certainly not style over substance.

Each of the 136 guest rooms is decorated in the bold, geometric style associated with the Missoni brand and features a flat screen TV with access to premium movies, an iPod dock, free Wi-Fi and local calls, a free minibar (which in their most luxurious rooms includes a bottle of Prosecco as well as a selection of wine and beer), a Nespresso machine and Missoni brand toiletries. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable.
The luxury hotel also sports a spa offering a wide variety of massage and aromatherapy treatments for men and women. Once you are feeling rested and refreshed, you can enjoy a glass of Prosecco in their striking and chic bar described by the founders as an “ever evolving runway,” before enjoying top-quality Italian cuisine in the Hotel’s restaurant Cucina.
