21212
Paul Kitching’s 21212 restaurant opened in Edinburgh in May 2009. It has received rave reviews and numerous awards – including a Michelin Star in 2010.

21212 has also four beautifully appointed large bedrooms, each with a dedicated lounge area. The rooms are on the two upper levels of the house, and offer commanding views over the gardens to the rear, or the city of Edinburgh to the front. On a clear day, you can see the Firth of Forth and beyond from the two front-facing rooms. Each room is elegantly and uniquely decorated and features an en-suite bathroom with free-standing bath and walk-in shower or a specially designed en-suite bathroom with a shower.

This multi award-winning boutique hotel is a favourite with guests visiting for a city break, a business trip or a romantic getaway, thanks to its feeling of privacy and space. The hotel’s one-of-a-kind, two acre roof garden is an unforgettable experience, giving guests a spectacular view across Edinburgh.

Hotel Missoni
Larger in scale (there are 136 rooms), the Missoni is the most glamorous place to stay in Edinburgh. It is located in an excellent location just off the Royal Mile. Missoni, the Italian fashion label, chose Edinburgh to launch its first hotel in 2009. From the doormen in Missoni kilts to the beautiful bar staff and bible-like cocktail list its style credentials are unquestionable. Creative director Rosita Missoni incorporated the trademark zigzags, geometric patterns and vibrant colors into the hotel design creating dazzling interiors, while Giorgio Locatelli collaborated on the restaurant, Cucina.
