Where Should I Stay for budget friendly accommodation ? – Free Parking


When choosing your accommodation near the EICC conference centre, you need to take a few elements into account. First of all, location is key, especially if you don’t have a lot of time to spare for transport. However, keep in mind that the city is rather compact and that a reliable network of buses makes the connection between the New Town and other areas, which makes transfers quite easy.

>> Cheap Accommodation near Edinburgh EICC

If you are in town only for a few days and your trip is mainly business-oriented, you should choose your hotel or bed and breakfast within walking distance. Alternatively, if you have a late flight into Edinburgh or an early departure, selecting your accommodation near the airport is probably the best solution.

Then, you need to decide on the level of comfort and the number of amenities you need. Do you simply need a space to sleep at night, or will you spend some time working there?

Budget is also an important thing to consider when planning your trip. With the wide range of options available, you will undoubtedly find the place you need, whether it is a cheap hotel or 5 star property, apartment for rent or bed and breakfast. Many offer free on-site car parking as well.
