We stayed at the Cairn Hotel in February 2019. The room was very spacious and we had some lovely free goodies - crisps, biscuits, tea and coffee. The hotel is just around the corner from the Edinburgh Playhouse and very handy to walk to Princes Street and all main attractions.

We visited Edinburgh in January, as 4 couples getting together for a weekend break. We booked one of the Cairns Hotel apartments, which turned out to be a massive house. First of all, the parking isn't huge, 5 parking spaces in a locked car park to the rear of the hotel, and

The Cairn hotel is walking distance to the Royal Mile and pretty much anything you would want to see and do. There are pounds everywhere within blocks of the place as well. You should have no problem finding anything you need around there. Have a great time!

We were in the main hotel and it was a wonderful stay. I was in a single room traveling with a friend who also had a single. The staff were great and the hotel is located on a side street but close to pubs and restaurants. I would not hesitate to stay again. We were on the second floor and never heya peep except for the people next to us coming into their room.
