There are plenty of budget accommodation in Edinburgh, from B&Bs and classy hotels to hostels. Here are some of the best budget hotels in Edinburgh:
The Edinburgh Central is located near the Leith Walk. It reopened as the member of the five-star Scottish Youth Hostels Association in 2006. The hostel’s recipes are amazing and they are offered at hostel prices. The simple wooden furniture and walls have helped the Edinburgh Central to maintain its reputation. It is considered the best accommodation choice in the city.
The Fraser Suites is established targeting the corporate visitors with long-stay deals. However, the self-catering facilities, gym and in-house restaurant make this hotel a perfect choice for tourists also. Furniture of 75 bedrooms look a bit wild, but they are practical and comfortable. There are microwave and fridge even in the cheapest rooms. And with iPod docks and Wi-Fi thrown in, it is not difficult to find out why the rooms get booked up quickly.
Visitors get a lot from their money at The George. In order to get the best deals, you will have to book well in advance. The hotel is situated on the classy George Street. Some of the best restaurants and shops in town, including Harvey Nicholas, Centotre and Oloroso are located nearby. In 2009 building of the George was refurbished and now there are latest technology and luxury color schemes in its large rooms. Even the people like Walter Scott and Robert Burns were said to be regulars here.
If you are looking for minimal, smart and clean accommodation without the AstroTurf carpets and fluorescent paint scheme, this place will be suitable for you. A funky terrace for sunnier days, bright, light dorms, and white and chrome kitchens will add up for the better hostel experience. The only downside is that there are no private rooms aside from triples or dorms. Cheap beds are available just a step above the average hostel.
Ten Hill Place
The rooms of Ten Hill Place are not very stylish, but they do offer the value. Central, modern and slick, this contemporary, smart hotel has undeniably attracted lots of visitors since its opening 5 years back. Profits of this hotel are provided to the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, which also runs a strange and fabulous museum.
Channings has become the favorite spot of authors who visit Edinburgh to participate in the August book festival. It is also the great option for winter travelers. The hotel is located in the New Town Street. With 41 unique rooms, it offers a lot of luxury for the money.
