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.
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.

Whether you are visiting the EICC conference centre for a convention or a cultural event, you will have numerous opportunities to explore Edinburgh and discover its rich blend of historical sites, world-renowned festivals, incredible cultural offer and vibrant nightlife.
If you love architecture, a stroll around the Old Town and New Town is a must, as you’ll be able to admire the famous Edinburgh Castle and other buildings in what is a stunning UNESCO World Heritage site. Choosing your cheap b&b in the historical centre means that you will have access to all those wonders, as well as the city’s numerous parks, including the Suntrap Garden or the Royal Botanical Garden, but also its great museums and art galleries.
A large selection of hotels is available right next to the EICC, which is convenient if your convention starts early and finishes late. The Grassmarket area is a delight to explore as well, with its independent shops, restaurants, bars and cafes.
If your trip to the Scottish capital is short, staying in a traditional bed and breakfast in this area is a wonderful way to get a glimpse of the historical and cultural heritage of the city.
