Who are we? EuroCheapo is a guide to cheap hotels in Edinburgh and throughout Europe. Our editors love a great hotel deal—we’ve been tracking them down since 2001. All of our recommended hotels have a few things in common: They’re clean, central and cheap.

Budget travelers be aware: Edinburgh attracts more than one million tourists a year, nearly half of them in August for the city’s annual theater festival. Even outside of festival time, Edinburgh beckons with its beautifully restored Old and New Towns, making it the United Kingdom’s second-most visited city.

All of this can get expensive for visitors. But it doesn’t need to be out of reach—especially as Edinburgh is also home to a number of budget-friendly hotels, many of which you can find on EuroCheapo.

Getting started: To find the best budget hotel for your trip, do a search for your travel dates in the box above, or simply click through to see our list of recommended hotels.
