When you visit a spectacular city like Edinburgh, you usually expect the accommodation to come with a price tag. However, there are other options available for the traveller on a budget.
As well as the usual budget chain hotels such as Ibis, Premier Inn, Travelodge and Tune you can also find hidden gems in the form of B&Bs and quaint Georgian guest houses close to the city centre.
With the rise of internet accommodation sites such as Airbnb, finding budget accommodation in Edinburgh has never been easier. For large parties and groups travelling together, they offer an extensive range of rooms in shared houses, apartments, individual houses and hostels for you to stay in from around £50 per night. Extra costs such as booking several rooms for a party of six in a hotel can be eliminated, as you have the opportunity to stay in a large house or apartment in a charming area of the city with one fixed price, and costs can be shared.
The range of accommodations are also scattered across city centre and residential areas allowing you to live like a local for your stay.
