Hotel was basic but OK. Room was near access doors for lower floor and we were constantly disturbed at night with people coming and going. Staff were nice. Location good!

Charming Getaway
Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Cairn Hotel! Well worth the price, especially in comparison to other local hotels in the area. With a intimate boutique feel, we instantly felt right at home. We were welcomed with a basket of snacks, which was a cute touch. The room is very comfortable and the location is unbeatable. Highly suggest!

Close but not too close to the bustle
Very convenient to historical sites. Quiet neighborhood. Very comfortable . It’s in a restored townhouse neighborhood right next to the Ukraine consulate.

The Cairn was prfect 4 me! Small, clean & welcoming! The staff was very helpful. This was my first trip to Europe & I was solo. The hotel was easy to find & “walkable” - close to city center. I would definitely stay there again.
