The Cairn Hotel Puts You in the Heart of the Theater District

What Should I Expect When Staying at the Cairn Hotel?

Situated just 10 minutes away from the Waverly Rail Station, the Cairn Hotel offers comfortable rooms, as well as a bar so you can relax and unwind with a pint or mixed drink after a long day. Snacks and coffees are available during the daytime hours. Start each morning by choosing from a tempting assortment of breakfast items after paying a reasonable per-person fee. You can even make your own waffles and add tasty toppings. All rooms are non-smoking.

What's the Area Like?

The Cairn Hotel is in the middle of Edinburgh's vibrant theater district. Whether you want to catch a show or just stroll around to see the sights, you're sure to feel the energy of the area. The Old Town District is a short distance away, offering plenty of opportunities to appreciate local history. The Waverly Rail Station is only 10 minutes from the Cairn Hotel by foot, making it simple to explore surrounding towns even if you haven't rented a car. 

How Much Should I Expect to Pay?

If you're looking for inexpensive hotels in Edinburgh, the Hotel Cairn is a smart choice for families and solo travelers alike. It averages $41 per night, so it's about the same price as the Old Waverly Hotel and less expensive than the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel. Choose the Hotel Cairn if you're on a limited budget but don't want to sacrifice staying in a great location to save money during your trip. 

What's the Bottom Line?

With its welcoming rooms, on-site bar, and optional breakfast offerings, the Cairn Hotel gives you everything you need for a pleasant stay in Edinburgh without high costs.
