Heading off for a vacation to far-flung lands doesn’t need to be the preserve of the wealthy. Not all of us need to bathe in the lap of luxury when we go travelling, especially when you’re planning to spend most of your time out exploring anyway. That’s why we’ve gathered together some budget Edinburgh hotels and hostels to uncover the best value accommodation in the Scottish capital.
Most of these options are centrally located for easy exploration of Edinburgh’s premier attractions and a short stagger home from the nightlife. There are some excellent hostels offering rock bottom prices for beds and they are ideal for young travelers. Budget Backpackers is centrally located, very good value for money, and has a friendly and lively atmosphere, as well as a great café and chill out room.
For people who prefer a basic hotel and a slightly higher level of privacy and comfort we’ve highlighted some budget Edinburgh hotels that are worth considering. Tune’s Haymarket hotel is inexpensive, but surprisingly comfortable and stylish. Guest Houses can also offer comfort at very reasonable prices. The Balmoral Guest House is charming and occupies a great location close to the city centre.
So if you’ve blown your vacation stash on getting here, don’t worry. You should be able to find somewhere to stay that won’t break the bank. Whether it’s the home comforts and hearty grub of a B&B or the familiar surroundings of a budget chain hotel, you’ll be able to rest that weary head without worrying about the bill in the morning.
