Forget the recently opened Mardan Palace hotel in Turkey (it being luxurious and comfortable enough for even super-diva Mariah Carey) and give us Missoni any day. Because the first ever Hotel Missoni is to open in Edinburgh on 8 June and it is everything you'd expect from the luxury Italian brand – bright prints as far as the eye can see, but tastefully done of course! Rosita Missoni, the creative director of the hotel, was in Edinburgh at the weekend for a preview – and was naturally piped in by a big Scot in a kilt.
Home to Harvey Nichols and countless luxury stores, Edinburgh has long been thought of as a style destination, but with the opening of this fabulous hotel, the fashion crowd can now sleep soundly in luxury too. Let's just hope that there are some of those Missoni branded umbrellas and thick scarves on hand for the guests to borrow, should they decide to step out into the brisk wind of the city!
