Edinburgh’s historical sites, modern shopping streets and rich cultural heritage make it a popular destination for short weekend trips. The four- and five-star hotels in the city centre tend to attract the most visitors, but for those who are unwilling to spend lots of money for a place to spend the night there are plenty of cheap hotels in Edinburgh that can help cutting down on traveling expenses. Smaller family-run guesthouses are particularly common in this city and are almost invariably budget-class accommodation. The following three are examples of central Edinburgh hotels that offer bed and breakfast for reasonable rates.

  • The Hedges, next to historic Calton Hill Park, The Hedges offers guest house accommodation and free Wi-Fi. Waverley rail station and Princes Street are a brief walk away.
  • The Osbourne Hotel, in the heart of Edinburgh city centre, this Georgian town house offers free Wi-Fi and good value accommodation. Princes Street is a 5-minute walk away.
  • The Links House Hotel, Overlooking Leith Links, this Georgian house offers refurbished rooms with LCD TVs and tea and coffee facilities. A bus stop is located outside, providing quick access to Edinburgh city centre.
