Hotels in Leeds

Creative Tourist

As a financial centre, Leeds is used to providing accommodation fit for business but with an ever-increasing amount of tourists looking for hotels in Leeds, new types of accommodation have emerged. Sleek, modern luxury can be found in the form of Dakota Delux but for the more traditional taste The Queens Hotel, found in the heart of the city centre, is an integral part of the city’s landscape. For the younger traveller or those more artistically inclined East Street Art’s Art Hostel offers a cheaper room within a hub of creativity. One of the many benefits of Leeds is that you are never too far away from green space; only a short drive out of the city centre there are several luxury and modest hotels to be found in idyllic rural settings. Meaning that you can easily access the heart of Leeds whilst staying within the picturesque Yorkshire countryside.
