You may be strapped for cash, but that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to bunking up in a stranger-filled dorm, staying somewhere soulless or being far from Albert Dock, the River Mersea or the Royal Liver Building. We’ve found places to do Liverpool in style – one is even good enough for Jürgen Klopp – without forking out a fortune.

Hope Street Hotel

This Georgian Quarter boutique hotel has welcomed plenty of celebs over the years (Condoleezza Rice, Lady Gaga and Jürgen Klopp, to name but a very random few), but it’s also eminently affordable for the rest of us mere mortals. Even the smallest rooms have the same high design as the rest of the hotel and include luxurious little perks like Nespresso coffee machines, robes, slippers and bathrooms with sweet-smelling REN toiletries that you’re encouraged to take home.

Lock & Key

You’ll have to be quick to bag a reservation at this Georgian townhouse hotel in the Ropewalks District. It has just 14 bedrooms, all punching well above their price bracket with plushly decadent designs that blend period style and contemporary comforts: think bespoke velvet headboards and scallop-shaped cocktail chairs, gleaming brass accents and dark painted woodwork. The restaurant/bar is a bit of a find, too, serving up all-day food and drink at very reasonable rates.

The Resident Liverpool

Rates may be low at this 19th-century cork warehouse-turned-smart aparthotel, but standards are high. Staff consistently get rave reviews for their helpful service and bedrooms are well-maintained, spotlessly clean and have mini kitchens, just in case you want to stretch the budget further with a spot of self-catering. It earns a big tick in the location box, too: in the heart of the Ropewalks District, surrounded by bars and restaurants, some of which offer discounts for Resident guests.

Pullman Liverpool

Budget Hotel
4.6/5 (998 Reviews)
Pullman Liverpool
Despite its prime waterfront position in South Docks – close to the Liverpool Arena, the Albert Dock and the Baltic Triangle, the four-star Pullman still has affordable rooms. And very smart they are, too, including such luxuries as Nespresso machines, Bose docking stations and CO Bigalow toiletries. Design nods to the area’s maritime heritage include giant images of the old docks and light fittings made from ship’s lanterns on pulleys.

    Staying at this Beatles-themed hotel won’t dent your wallet, but you’ll still find high-quality fixtures and fittings in the rooms, including comfortable Hypnos beds, monsoon showers and interactive flatscreen TVs. If you’re a firm Fab Four fan, you’ll be thrilled to find you also get specially commissioned Beatles artworks on the walls and a handy location just round the corner from Mathew Street and the famous Cavern Club.

    Affordable luxury is the Indigo mantra so rooms here don’t cost a fortune but come with the kind of perks you’d expect from a far pricier property, including rainfall showers, Aveda toiletries and free minibars. The interior designers went big and bold in their use of colour: each room rocks a different rainbow shade that’s carried through from murals featuring oversized images of cotton spools to vibrant cushions, rugs and co-ordinated tiling in the bathrooms.
