    The comfort, location for onward travel, closeness to city centre & Leith. Excellent value for money, and availability of good range of restaurants and convenience stores in the immediate vicinity. On major bus routes if weather is bad, not too hilly if walking (which I was). The wide range of drinks and biscuits provided and the free toiletries.

    The windows would not shut but that was not a problem as it was infernally hot during the time I was in Edinburgh.

    Hotel staff was friendly and the location was on a quieter side street within a 10 minute walk from the train station.

    The wifi, although adequate for emails and low bandwidth activity, would not accommodate much more.

    The location is great. The breakfast room and bar area are very new - I'm guessing there is an overall upgrade happening in the hotel. The bathroom was excellent with all the bits and pieces you would not expect from a budget hotel.

    I was in one of the single rooms which was ok but very dated and the mish-mash of furniture and fabrics could do with an update

    location near train station and bus to airport. Lovely bathroom. Friendly staff

    My single room was so small that the end of the bed touched the closet. Hard to get to closet without climbing over the corner of the bed. No breakfast available.

    The hotel was in a nice quiet area which was nice and ideally situated for all the main sightseeing venues,although we were down for the Fringe and had a great time

    Hotel Cairn was perfectly positioned for our needs with a collection of really good places to eat nearby. Helpful hotel staff and a clean, cosy room.Rediscovered a liking for hot chocolate & shortbread biscuits, provided in room.

    The style of the reception area could be enhanced to create a more ambient welcome, in keeping with the facade of the building. It was rather more like a station than an hotel.

    The location - close to everything The staff - very helpful The room I had was modern and updated. It was very clean The price for such a central hotel was great

    The only thing I can find fault with was that the carpets going up the stairs were worn.

    We had high-ceilinged rooms with a huge window. Very old, but gave the room a beautiful personality. We had very comfy beds. There was coffee available every morning, and shortbread replenished in the rooms each day. Even though the room didn't have air conditioning, the open window provided a lovely breeze each day, and the room was never too warm.

    Our room overlooked an overgrown courtyard. It seemed a waste to let such a pretty opportunity just sit there, uncared for.

    Staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the bathroom and toiletries in particular were of a standard well above the hotels rating. Would definitely choose to stay again in the future.

    The wi-fi was not very good in my room and I struggled to keep a connection

    excellent location, room we had looked like it had been recently been decorated with a modern look which was lovely. Other rooms looked a bit dated though but overall very pleasantly surprised. In the centre of city but really quite location at night, no noise!!

    cant say I found any problems no lift if you cant manage the stairs but other than that....perfect.

    The location on a quiet street near The Playhouse Theatre

    The bedroom was dated and could do with being modernised

    Price for Edinburgh and very fresh modern, clean décor and the beautiful tiled shower room was exceptionally clean. Cleanliness in hotel first class. Efficient check in and polite helpful staff - offered to store cases after check-out. Bright hygienic breakfast room with fresh plentiful food (continental). Close walking distance to theatre, plenty eating places, Waverley train station, bus station and princes street. Quiet street in good area.

    Bedroom was downstairs in basement and a little dark but only for one night. Would ask for brighter room if staying longer.

    We were in the refurbished part of the hotel - the room was really nicely decorated. It was clean and comfortable. Paid extra for the breakfast which was a real bargain. Although classed as a bargain hotel we had shampoo and shower gel supplied every day and there was also a lovely supply of shortbread - very welcome with a cup of tea at the end of a busy day. Would definitely visit Cairn again

    Cairn hotel was in nice quiet street, but still in a walking distance from the best spots of Edinburgh. Also the beautiful Calton Hill is right across the street.

    The aircon in the room wasn't the best one. The week that we spent in Edinburg was quite warm and the room was hot and kinda damp for a long while you took a shower. This wasn't a big problem 'cos that kind of a really warm weather rare treat in Scotland! :)

    Loved the way that everything was provided even a sewing kit. Great bathroom and size of room. Great cotton bedding. Very quiet on the road outside so good nights sleep.

    The lighting.

    The location near the main train station and near the car rental companies.

    Given a very large family room (1 double bed and 3 single beds) in an annex. Not much contact with hotel staff.

    Clean and very nice staff and relaxed environment. Will definitely go there again if I'm staying in Edinburgh.

    WiFi, needed to login all the time over and over. To many closed doors in the corridors. Strange creaky sound in the the ceiling on one of the rooms when window was open. There where some wind outside. Missing a little fridge in the room (needed for my medicine).
