    its location and the friendly staff

    small bed -I'm only 5.10 but had to use a towel as a shawl over my shoulders! also the layout (hotels) was a bit confusing

  • Couple
    6.6

    Kindly staff and good price. 5 minutes walking to pubs and shopping centre.

    The heaters are not enough in winter. They need to improve this installing air conditioners or similar.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    staff were friendly nice atmosphere when you walked into it

    funiture was a bit poor and carpets in room

  • Family with children
    5.8

    The location was good, the room was reasonable, beautiful ensuite, and the first day cleanliness was to a particuarly high standard.

    One day the cleaner had come into our room and not made beds properly, not changed towels, not put new cups out or shampoos, coffees etc. but when compaining to reception the man was more than apologetic and gave us all the items.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Room is big, staff is kindly and useful. Near city center about 10min walk.

    Maybe because the window can not be opend, there is some strange smell in the room.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    I only stayed one night and spent very little time hanging around or using facilities outside my room. However, it was a short walk from the centre, but in a nice quiet area. I have no complaints, it was excellent value for money (only £43 per night), and I will book there again next time i'm in Edinburgh.

  • Couple
    7.0

    altghough the room was a little bit small, the location was good to the centre and the hotel was quite at night.

  • Single
    9.2

    The perfect sized for one person tiny single room.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    My second stay at Cairn. No complaints when price for db room £30. 24 hour reception is good.Communal area/ lounge nice for parties of people, tho we didn't use it. Location and proximity to public transport great.

    Our db room tho high ceilinged was small with no room for extra chair and bedside table on only one side of the bed. A minor quibble. Overall, ex value if all you need is a clean bed and a central location.

  • Single
    10.0

    Was clean and comfottable would stay there again and recommend it to others

    Was a lot more than I expected for the money

  • Couple
    9.2

    The room was very cozy even though it was small, excellent location! Very clean and homy.

  • Single
    10.0

    I liked everything basically. The room was perfect for what I needed (a few nights sleep while visiting friends), the bathroom was really nice, the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly (Especially Stuart, the night manager)... I can't fault my stay at all and I would use this hotel everytime from now on while visiting Edinburgh.
