I liked how clean the hotel was and the staff were very friendly. Parking is a bit of a problem so we paid the £12 to park in the hotel parking, luckily for us there was a space left as there’s only a few. Breakfast was also very good, I would absolutely stay here again.

2 Business trips

Pros: everything
Location: Only a few minutes walk from the last tram stop ( York Plc ) from the airport so perfect for commuting in and out, 10 mins uphill to Princes St etc.
As my title indicates the place was so good I stayed there 2 weeks in a row! To be honest price indicates where I stay and the rates they had on for a few weeks brought the calibre of rooms I normally don't get into budget window. I was spoilt on first 2 night trip as was upgraded from small to large double. The larger rooms it seems are across the road in a separate building accessed simply with a hotel card. The entrance hall and staircase gave a glimpse of what would expect in room as was bright, clean and nicely carpeted and decorated. The double room had a good quality carpet and large double bed with everything would expect, large flatscreen tv, small iron board and iron, tea & coffee BUT also a welcome hamper, filled up daily! The bathroom albeit cramped around the toilet if a large person was very modern and well fitted out with large rain shower and small head unit, temperature and pressure perfect. The 2nd stay was in a small double on the same side of street as the reception area and these were still perfect albeit not quite as good. The particular room I had was facing the street with an old non double glazed window which did give a chill feeling initially but with huge heavy quality curtains closed felt no draft at all. The floors were wooden flooring rather then carpet and smaller but really all the difference, as the new modern ensuite was identical to the larger rooms. All in all a perfect base only a few minutes walk from the last tram stop from airport.

Comfortable hotel close to Edinburgh city centre

Pros: The price was good for being close to the city centre.
Cons: I kept getting disconnected from the hotel's WiFi.
Location: The hotel is located off London Road, in a fairly quiet street. There's a large Vue cinema within a 5 minute walk and Calton Hill is close by.
The Cairn Hotel is located a 15 minute walk from Waverley railway station and Princes St. My single room was comfortable and well laid out.

Nice hotel close to the centre

Good hotel and close to the centre. Twin room in basement was a bit small, but it was fine for one nights stay. Generally ok, could have been a bit cleaner but all in all good

Ok for cheap and cheerful stay

Twin room adequate and clean. Very dated but close for all theatres would stay there again as not far from John Lewis under 5 min walk

Not as expected

Everything was very good but these two things: 1. There was something like a hole in the window, so it was pretty cold in the room, so that I had to turn the heating system, which was not enough and I managed somehow to full that hole with the curtain. 2. There was no toilet brush... nothing more to say, this is something essential if you want to keep your toilet clean. However I would recommend staying in this hotel, it is a nice place with minor mistakes, which can be easily fixed :)
