One night stay
Stayed here for one night. Welcome was friendly and check in very quick. Good sized room with comfy twin beds and a lovely welcome basket. Toilet in en suite may present problems to tall people as it was positioned in corner with front facing a wall so not much legroom. Breakfast cost £5 per person and was typical serve yourself continental style with juice, cereal, cold meat, cheese, toast, waffles etc. Hotel conveniently situated in a quiet street approx a 10 minute walk to Waverley Station. Close to Edinburgh Playhouse and a number of restaurants.

Not the lap of luxury
Edinburgh is amazing, and the Cairn Hotel is in a pretty decent location as everything is walkable. That said, the hotel itself was a bit of disappointment. It was comfortable, and the shower was good, but the walls are a bit thin and the room was certainly not the room in the photos. The room we had was a basement room, which happily had a big window, but due to the direction of the sun, it was never bright enough to light up the room. The overhead light was far too harsh and the tiny bedside lamps weren't enough... The decor was also not as advertised, far less plush and fancy that shown in the photos. I probably wouldn't stay here again, but it depends what you're after. A decent bed to get your head down after a long day? Perfect. A little bit of luxury to unwind in and relax? Not so much.
